Forums - Sales Discussion - Global Hardware April 26 to May 9

Looks about right with last week being a little higher. Either the sales boom has mostly worn off or hardware is in the right amount of short enough supply that we can't tell the difference. Most likely the sales boom has worn off.

Only one week was posted on the main page print (switch 266.6k, ps4 182.1k, xone 46.6k and 3ds 5.8k) and here and informed two weeks ago, the last week was April 25, you do not do the sum of the two weeks total on the main page also?

The front page updates automatically and I have no control over it. It is set up to just display the most recent week's figures. We do have plans to create a separate hardware page where people can easily view weekly hardware figures.

But is the data for the total hardware sum of the generation added to the two weeks or just the week in question? Another doubt, wouldn't it be correct to have updated the current week with the values ​​of the two weeks added together since there is no way to post the two charts in the week of May 9th, after all technically it jumped from April 25th to the 9th? Thank you.

I updated the week ending May 2 first, then immediately updated for the week ending May 9. All the sales figures are there for the hardware sum for the generation. The way it is set up is I have to update hardware figures one week at a time. It is just if I were to do two or more weeks in a short span it might appear the hardware figures skipped a week or more.

Still no source on them Xbox one sales, eh? Microsoft doesn't post the sales, and NPD refuses to provide a source for their numbers... And you guys just say that you got your numbers from NPD. There is no source anywhere for Xbox. Very interesting.

NPD has more than 95% direct coverage of retail sales in the USA, so they collect sales data directly from the retailers who sell consoles.

Media Create and Famitsu both have large direct coverage of the Japanese market, so their numbers are reliable too.

Likewise, GfK is the official tracker for European sales.

There have been enough reported numbers to piece worldwide Xbox One sales together without any word from Microsoft.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Shipments

Ah, that's the stuff, I was starting to feel a bit of weekly sales withdrawal.

Things seem to be returning to normal numbers-wise.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

That kind of already exists. The same place you used to view weekly software figures
