Forums - Sales Discussion - The Official March NPD Thread

If the PS3 shelf space is growing, it is not because it is eating the Wii's. It is eating the 360's or PSP's.

End of 2009 Predictions (Set, January 1st 2009)

Wii- 72 million   3rd Year Peak, better slate of releases

360- 37 million   Should trend down slightly after 3rd year peak

PS3- 29 million  Sales should pick up next year, 3rd year peak and price cut

GBA: Jun 01: 870k (Launch month)
GBA: Mar 03: 697k
PS2: Jun 02: 690k

So... That means that DS and Wii just had the two biggest months ever outside of holidays or launches...


I assume March 03 and June 02 were 5-week months... But now I wonder if there are some 4-week months with better weekly sales.
