I'll wait a few days after the numbers for the NPD guy to attack ioi again, will be a good read. However, I take his silence this month that maybe we're spot on? :)



Well if those are correct we are reasonably close overall, but still some differences:

 

 

 
         US         CAN     NPD VGC Correlation
DS 561000 45700   606,700 518,321 85%

PSP 290100 18500    308,600 267,567 87%
PS2 270760 21000    291,760 243,580 83%
Xbox 360 198440 13500    211,940 227,275 107%

Even if they are, ioi still tracked much better than last month. Most are 15% or less. PS2 and GBA are harder to track, I would assume.



GBA and PS2 are the hardest to track, we get least data for them. Everything else is within 15% which is pretty good I guess. Still not enough to combat the naysayers but not bad overall and more to learn from.



Does NPD release numbers rounded to tens of units?

Official NPD data for June is in and, once again, Nintendo's handheld and console dominated the charts. Nintendo DS sold through a whopping 561,000 units for the month and Wii pulled in another 381,000 believers, making the two systems the number-one and number-two best-sellers respectively in June.

Sony's PSP performed surprisingly well, with sales undoubtedly spurred by a recent price drop. The handheld managed 290,000 in sales, which was good enough to nab the third best-selling spot for the month. Meanwhile, PlayStation 2 garnered another 270,000 unit sales, earning it the number-four position.

Xbox 360 sales, at 198,000, were nearly doubled by Wii. Game Boy Advance attracted another 113,000 people and, finally, PlayStation 3 continued to trail behind all competitors with 98,000 in sales -- a number that is up over previous months, but still well behind Wii or Xbox 360.

The top-selling games largely belonged to Nintendo, too. Against IGN's recommendation, Wii owners continued to buy Mario Party 8, which pulled in another 426,000 in sales to become the month's best-selling game. Wii Play nabbed the second slot with 293,000. Pokemon Diamond and Pearl sucked in 288,000 and 214,000 new DS fans respectively and Xbox 360's Forza Motorsport 2 capped out the top five with 197,000 in sales.

Despite low ratings and a lackluster online mode, more than 157,000 people were tricked into buying Pokemon Battle Revolution for Wii. However, in more positive news, Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition managed nearly 150,000 in sales through June after being available for about 10 days.
