Forums - Sales Discussion - Global up 24th November 2012 (Black Friday and Wii U week)

lol, VGC has too much pride to acknowledge a big mistake, so they adjust PS3 from 390 to 447k instead of ~525k. It's been six years now, but hopefully people will slowly but surely understand where this site is pulling their numbers from. Hint: It's not from Retail. Ever wondered why Japan figures are updated ALWAYS after MediaCreate releases their figures? It tells enough about this site.

 


Why keep coming back then?

@ Pezus (Sorry can't quote atm):

Even if we use a smaller ratio it doesn't work though really, MS said OVER 750k in the U.S.A during 18-23rd, so somewhere between 750-800k, but let's use 750K for the maths and 10% instead of the usual 13% for N.A:

That would make 825K for N.A during 18-23rd so that would mean 360 only sold 13.6K during the Saturday?

Doesn't seem likely, so I still think it's slightly undertracked in N.A, but overall it's Europe that looks off the most for me.

Anyways, finally excited for a NPD again mate! :)



Also, global is up!

Halo 4 passes 5M in it's 3rd week !:)
Hitman: Absolution (PS360) over 900k combined.

I would've liked Hitman to do a bit better, let's hope for legs.

Yeah, I do agree that it seems a bit low, but I think even 10% outside of USA this week would be too much. 7-8% maybe. So let's say it did 800k in USA for the full week, and then we add 7.5% which makes it 860k. Maybe ioi has a better idea of the true ratio during BF week, because sales are very heavily skewed towards USA that week.

Wow, that's actually better than I expected for Hitman. It's almost a million on PS3/360 alone.

Uncharted 3 over 5m the same week as Halo 4 :O

@ Pezus: Hah, that's a coincidence, congrats Uncharted 3!
