Oh just remembered. Reggie is probably preparing to eat some crow come January


Why? Here's his quote:

“Modern Warfare 2 is on two platforms. On a single platform, absolutely. I say that unequivocally. On one particular platform, I do believe so. You’ve got to give me the entire holiday selling season, so let’s take it all the way through the January NPD data. It’s going to be close. Modern Warfare is a a great title. As a gamer, I look forward to it. The new Modern Warfare, I think is going to be a fantastic title. Not to discount it, it will sell well. Of course I’ll play it. I play all the content out there.”

It'll outsell MW2 PS3 in the US.

How about a video ?

Geoff or whatever his name is mentions the 360 Twice and Reggie agrees both times. Let's not back peddle just yet ;)


Huh? The quote I posted is from the vid. Reggie says one particular platform but Geoff moved the goalposts to the 360. Listen to it again.

Regardless of what people think of the numbers, good job on VGC's part. Except for DS and 360 everything is within margin of their estimates. Particularly impressive with how hard it is to track numbers accurately this time of year.



Proudest Platinums:
1. Gran Turismo 5
2. Persona 4 Arena
3. Wipeout HD
4. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
5. Super Street Fighter 4

take your fight somewhere else & keep this thread clean, you know you can multi PM eachother & chat on IM now

No fight here! Just had to reply to Carl's LOL post



 

According to TeamXbox, the 360 was ahead for the month in the US.



                                                                                                             

shit, this NPD is bad news

I guess BF sales were correct but 360 sales for previous week were too low .... or PS3 sales too high. will check later



Time to Work !

If we´re talking about adjustments then I believe DS is the most undertracked. 250k is quite a big number so maybe that should be adjusted?

Just accept the fact that Reggie was totally being cocky, went out of his way to make this prediction, put everything on the line on his being right, and will now get to have it rubbed in his face for the rest of eternity.

I honestly think he could still be right. Not likely, but also not the open and shut case everyone seems to think it is.

Or maybe ioi is happy with his estimate of Walmart figures and therefore sees no reason to change his numbers at all?

After all, NPD is just estimating Walmart too.


Yeah but it also goes the other way. Vgc could be wrong in both black friday and total sales. People assume that there must be something wrong with the NPD numbers when it does not go the way they hoped/planned. If the numbers were released lets say Wii, 1.1m, 360 600k and PS3 say 900k, people would not question it.

Personally i think its like that guy on gaf said, maybe people got caught up in the ps3 momentum and assumed because it had been doing so well that it would continue to do well. While the 360 had sort of declined by about 30% or so, so assume that decrease must continue.

A 25k a week difference is pretty huge.

The margin between DS and PSP is epic! 1,7 million vs 294,000, that´s a difference in favor of DS at almost 1,4 million. Has DS ever owned PSP to such a large degree? I think it´s probably time for the PSP2 to be released next year.

Sony needs to move heaven and earth to get PSP2 (w/MH3P) really for next fall.  It's almost like a dead platform at this point.
