ioi, I only can say one word, congratulations!



Wow ,so those were the legit numbers .

I dont get it ,the PSP is selling like a top console ,it would be a generation leader with these numbers ....and it still is doubled in sales by the DS !This is madness ! I really dont understand the monster numbers of the DS ,its truly astounding .

And the PS2 ,when it appeared it was on the decline it manages another month at 291 000 consoles sold .It is truly unbeliable ,aside the Wii it is outselling its younger sibling and the X360 ....very serious in the last case ,as soon it will be 2 years in the market and in the two years it will have benn outsold by the PS2 .

The Wii is very very strong ,although measured in weekly sales it has slowed down something ....considering it sold 338K units in 4 weeks in May the 5 weeks number for June should have been some 420 K units not 380K .Still ,mighty impressive .

As for the X360 and the PS3 they have pretty much managed the same numbers as last month ,once we take in account it was 5 weeks instead of 4 .



Comparisons will come when all the data is in..we don't even have a top ten software list from NPD...just..top 7 and hardware..we'll see soon enough.

So Mario Party 8 is above 700k according to NPD already and Pokemon still managed to get an average of 100k/week in its 3rd NPD month.

Wii sales are a bit low compared to the earlier Canada numbers, Wii Play is very impressive though averaging 60k a week and showing no downfall whatsoever compared to last month.

Nice numbers for RE4, maybe this will convince Capcom to make more RE games on Wii in the future?

Software is pretty close for FM2, PBR, RE4, but wayy off for Wii Play, MP8, and Pokemon D/P.

#9 and #10 are probably either Darkness copies or Guitar Hero 2 for X360...



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.

very nice, within 15% is pretty good

Nintendo continues to dominate, so Wii haters, when does the "fad" end now? :P



 

Predictions:Sales of Wii Fit will surpass the combined sales of the Grand Theft Auto franchiseLifetime sales of Wii will surpass the combined sales of the entire Playstation family of consoles by 12/31/2015 Wii hardware sales will surpass the total hardware sales of the PS2 by 12/31/2010 Wii will have 50% marketshare or more by the end of 2008 (I was wrong!!  It was a little over 48% only)Wii will surpass 45 Million in lifetime sales by the end of 2008 (I was wrong!!  Nintendo Financials showed it fell slightly short of 45 million shipped by end of 2008)Wii will surpass 80 Million in lifetime sales by the end of 2009 (I was wrong!! Wii didn't even get to 70 Million)

It has been moved to "after Holiday 2007". Early 2008. Once it is still going strong through 2008, it will be moved to "after Holiday 2008". Assuming Nintendo wins that holiday season, Sony will go ahead and say "Well, we are still only 2 years in to our 10 year plan, 2009 is the 100% Fa Sure Critical Holiday Season". Rinse. Repeat.
