Forums - Sales Discussion - The Offical January 2011 NPD Thread (Data in 3 Hours for Jan 3-30)

MS PR:

Riding the momentum of its biggest year ever, Xbox 360 continued to drive strong console and software sales in the first month of the new year. Sustained consumer demand for Kinect helped propel Xbox 360 as the top selling console in January.

January NPD highlights include:
· Xbox 360 sold 381,000 units in January, up 48,000 units year-over-year. (Source: NPD Group, January 2011)

· Xbox 360 is the only console platform to show year-over-year growth in January at 15 percent. (Source: NPD Group, January 2011)

· Total retail spend on Xbox 360 topped $551 million, making it the top selling console platform for the 10th month in a row. (Source: NPD Group, January 2011)

· During the month of January, four of the top ten console game titles were for Xbox 360 including: “Call of Duty: Black Ops,” “Dead Space 2,”“Dance Central,” and “Kinect Sports.” (Source: NPD Group, January 2011)

Some lingering supply constraints coupled with high consumer demand led to continued pockets of shortages at retail. Microsoft anticipates this trend to improve through February, but will continue to work with retail and manufacturing partners to expedite production and shipments.

-_- not even mr greens twitter bragging? really? wth man


or pacter leaks ... maybe NPD demanded a lockdown!!!


well if patchter says something I tend to believe the opposite until we get some better sources :P

NPD has made NPD boring

This COULD be the end of NPD (for us pirates poor folk), I mean if they've told Pacther and the Big 3 to keep quiet ... it's not as if paid members leak info. When was the last time we had PSP numbers? I can't even remember. Noone has leaked those since it went private to my knowledge.

true true..Sony should just buy NPD :P then we won't have to worry about leakz

21K difference, btw that's US only data in the preview right?

Either way, within a certain margin of uncertainty.

"Xbox 360 is the only console platform to show year-over-year growth in January at 15 percent. (Source: NPD Group, January 2011) "

That's interesting, PS3 overtracked a bit too? As it shows growth of 1%



Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet a time.

So the 360 is actually only 20k overtracked after those recent adjustments?

Not bad



so we know that these are definetly in the top ten for individual sku

CoD:BO 360
Just Dance
Dead Space 2
