PS4: 120M

XB1: 70M

WiiU: 14M

3DS: 60M

Decent job by vgchartz here, but the US is still the region with the least precision in weekly numbers it seems, which is strange since it is the easiest of the two biggest regions to track by far (the other being Europe).



Great Logic that because most people don't own multiple console on a gen mean no one buy different consoles gen to gen (meaning they would drop gaming).

This must be the reason why no sega fan play nowadays, or why GC to Wii to WiiU sales in US are constant like ps2-ps3-ps4 and Xbox-360-1. There wasn't people changing platform just people who jumped gens.

There have been adjustments made, before the data for the week ending 30 Aug was released WiiU had already sold over 60k in the first three weeks of the month, which if uncorrected would have ended with WiiU selling ~80k instead of 73k on VGC (compared to NPD's 59.7k). Small adjustment, but as a percentage overtrack from NPD its still pretty large (34% pre-adjustment, 22% post adjustment).

I assume a similar thing has occurred to the other consoles, which is why VGC is fairly close, because when I was looking at the numbers a few days ago there was some pretty large delta's (3DS was another one thats been corrected a lot).

Funnier than VGC being off even adjusting their numbers after NPD was revealed is that they downcut the PS4 by 110k (as reported here) when they were still 250k downtracking even when they corrected to reflect Sony 10M report. Go figure why they do these witchcrafties.
