Forums - Sales Discussion - NPD December numbers

I believe it is because the charts listed on the front page include Canadian (possibly Mexican + Latin too) data for game sales. NPD has seperate sales figures for Canada. So it is feasible. Although I have not checked out the numbers myself.

How much did the collector's edition of Rainbow Six Vegas sell? Since Gears sold about 816K total for December and the regular version sold about 771K, the Gears of War collectors edition must have sold about 45K in December.



Thanks man! If possible post LTD for XBOX 360 software and Gamecube/XBOX hardware numbers for december.

Correct, and they are also not NPD from what I understand. Or at least not derived purely from NPD



Any chance to get LTD of these games? Okami Phoenix Wright Shadow of the Colossus

_______________ You're speculating now. Guessing what they may, or may not sell in certain regions. The facts are only: US, Canada, Japan, Austrilia, England, (maybe France) can be trsuted to have accurate sales information. The information you just display is no doubt the shipped information for that country from M$. If I believed that, I would have to believe PSP sold 20 million units by the summer, when the sales figures seem to indicate that didn't happen till winter, that is a really big difference. Update here. NPD accounts for USA AND CANADA. This is from NPDs site istelf, they also account for online sales from retailers. http://www.npd.com/entertainment-retail-tracking-service.html If you want to argue about software sales PS2 still sells more than everyone else worldwide. Even the software sales from the last month show according to NPD GoW is one the best title for 360 (really the only one at the moment, and CoD3). But Guitar Hero II, FFXII, Madden on PS2, Legend of Zelda TP, all performed very well. Along with DS titles. ______________________________ Again, my first statement was that the 360 is doing great since it sold more than the Wii + PS3. A statement that states that "if the supply of PS3/Wii was better it would of been different". But if we're supposed to deal in fact, the fact is the 360 still outsold the Wii and PS3, regardless of why (if we dealt in whys, the same argument could be for the 360's launch and how it could of sold 1m units last december in the US easily). Microsoft tracks what it's sold to retailers and distributors...I tend to agree with them, just like I agree with Sony and Nintendo on whatever they are selling to the distributors, as in M$'s eyes, they have sold 10.4m units...Not to retailers, just like Nintendo and Sony have sold their number. As for software, the PS2 is still dominating, but considering the 360's attach ratio, it's not safe for very long. Even though the PS3 and Wii easily outsold the 360's hardware launch, neither system have had the software succuess the 360 did, despite half the systems sold for the 360, and that's confirmed. (and the 360 didn't even have Zelda: Twilight Princess)



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.

when will our quotes work again?



Lifetime Sales Prediction - 6/29/2013
Wii U - 38 million
XBOX One - 88 million
Playstation 4 - 145 million

360 attach ratio is 5.3, PS2 is much higher than that if I'm not mistaken. But it could eventually take over the spot, as it appears PS2 software sales may have peaked. It decreased 2% year-over-year for December. "very long" I'm not so sure about that, PS2 is still be supported by both 3rd party and 1st party titles from SCEA. Considering there are 40 million PS2s in NA and about 5 million 360s, they still have work to do.



Request: Sales of Sonic the Hedgehog Nextgen, Sonic Rivals, Sonic "Genesis" GBA and Sonic Rush for December. Any November numbers would be nice too. I just want to see if people are buying the awful games or not. More people need to buy Rush :)
