Forums - Sales Discussion - March NPD - X360 #1 371k, PS3 337k, Wii 175k

Prediction: 360>PS3>3DS>Vita>PS2>PSP>DS>Wii



Around the Network

Prediction:

360 - undertracked by 50k
PS3 - undertracked by 50k-100k
3DS - spot on
Vita - undertracked by 30k
Wii - undertracked by 20k

Last month the PS3 outsold the 3DS by 20k a week, and it went from that to the 3DS outselling the PS3 with only Kid Icarus releasing, sorry, I just don´t believe the 3DS sold more then the PS3 in March, maybe I am wrong.

Bad numbers for everybody, let´s hope software is better.

Isn't your Wii estimation a little on the pessimistic side?



Signature goes here!

With the gap the 3DS outsold the PS3 with it is very plausible that the 3DS overtakes the PS3.  Considering you take 20k over for lets say 4 weeks which is 80k, and considering the 3DS outsold the PS3 by 86k last week.  It could go either way with room for error.  The 3DS made up a lot of ground last week.  Also, I just checked and your numbers are wrong.  The PS3 only outsold the 3DS on the first week.  And it wasn't by much.

Yes, I'm pulling a NintendoGamer to see if it works

He's talking about NPD vs. VGChartz numbers here. PS3 outsold 3DS in February according to NPD by 20k a week. And 3DS only outsold PS3 by 86k last week WW, not in US only.



what´s last year numbers?

Nah bro, in February the PS3 outsold the 3DS by 100k in a 4 week period in US, that is 25k a week.

It went from that to the 3DS outselling the PS3 by 3K a week in a 5 week period, with the only big software release being Kid Icarus, which according to VGC sold "only" 100k last month.

We are talking about US only, the fact that the 3DS is absolutely owning Japan and leading WW has nothing to do with US, we are talking NPD here.

Having said that, it´s obvious everything is possible, there is no such thing as sense when it comes to videogame sales.

That's why I shouldn't post when I wake up :p  I knew that.  Err sorry, yeah U.S the PS3 will probably outsell the 3DS. 



Already NPD time. Tagging to check out later, hopefully we get some solid numbers.
