Cool, I hope for some good numbers. If Vgchartz = NPD I will be very happy for the site.



Tease.

Odds are Microsoft is exaggerating the "2:1" Claim; it is probably more like 5:3 which isnt as sexy to brag about.

850k/600k/332k/220k/200k/136k or something is what I'd expect for Wii/DS/Xbox 360/PSP/PS3/PS2 in the USA

 

Microsoft has a tendency to make statements that undertrack. I've noticed this over the years. They under promise and over deliver. I think when they say 2:1, it's actually going to be a greater difference. Of course I could be wrong. But this has happened so many times now in the 7 years I've been following the Xbox, that I expect it to happen again.

it will be interesting to see little big planet sales.

If what that MS guy said about the 360 selling over 2 to 1 on the PS3 would mean those VGC numbers have to be wrong. If the PS3 sold 250k would mean the 360 sold 500k. If it is above a 200k gap then that really will be it for PS3 in USA. over 2 months since the price drop and those numbers wont even include the Gears 2 effect which means Nov NPD will probably be a MS win again. Then going into December i think we can assume PS3 will struggle to sell if the previous indicators are correct.

While he couldn't speak authoritatively regarding the industry-tracking NPD Group's October sales figures (expected to be released later today), Fils-Aime said he believes Wii Fit is the only game in the US to sell through at least 475,000 copies in three separate months of 2008, and has generated more money than either (but not both) the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 edition of Grand Theft Auto IV.

Either but not both!

Take that Wii Fit, GTA IV is still better than you!



Wii Fit sold over 475k in May and September...but not any other month in the USA (by NPD) as far as I can tell.

Which means he expects Wii Fit sold 475k+ in October by NPD

Espacially considering, that holidays are coming up. We won't see any suprises. It's gonna be close with vgchartz.



Actually, the wii might just tie with the DS, if not land above it for October. That's my guess anyway.



Huh. Who would've thought that beggining anew in my real life would coincide with starting anew on vgchartz?

Any day now, the dollar will be worth less than 2 zloty......any day now.....and my life savings will be in total jepordy ;(.
