OH my Lol xD 84K???? Really??? O.o


vgc had it at 54K


If that makes you feel better

What's really funny is you trying to cover up your "surprise". It's sold these numbers now for a long time...

What I personally find amusing is how close the "doomed" PS3 is to the almighty Wii. Nevermind the 360 completely trouncing everything.


Really close.... Wii ~73 Million & Ps3 ~36 million.... closer than i thought... o wait, you mean worthless comparisson sales, like weekly and monthly, which only keeps making the gap even bigger and bigger....

 

Yeah I'm starting to get annoyed with people constantly posting things liike "look how close the PS3 is to the Wii! Nintendo is in trouble!" as if PS3 being CLOSER to Wii yet still getting outsold by it means it's somehow catching up to it. That's not how it works. As long as Wii outsells PS3 at all, even if only be 1 unit, they are still puting more and more distance between themselves and their competitor. Some people can't seem to understand that.

Again that's solid tracking by VGC. Very small differences between the two.

I wonder how hardware can differ so much. Wait I know, it's because VGC tracks actual sales data while NPD stealth adjusts past under/overtracking and stacks that on top of each current month instead of correcting past sales data.

Oh no, for some people selling 10K less every week, despite having almost 30 million less units sold, is getting closer. But hey don't argue, because then you "lose" (LOL) the arguments (?) when posting real numbers =)



BTW, why's this thread broken?

lol.

Nice to see confidence in VGC's numbers, I guess!



MS are still going to have to fight it out untill November though, and even then, and especially given the Wii's slowdown, its debatable if Kinect can do what MS want.

Sony are finishing third, nobody is surprised, nor should they be.

Its pretty evident now that Nintendo NEEDS a 3DS this year, and im betting on this fucking happening (buying some NTDOY in the next month).

make it so

edit - My paint skills are chronic, leave me alone

edit2 - Will somebody fix this bloody thread???

Its all retarded and stuff



“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.

Yay DQIX!
