I see those numbers, but my concern is this:
360 sold around 2.3 million in 2005-2006 combined in Europe. I can see it selling 200-300k per month in 2007 in Europe for Jan-Feb. But that would put it at 2.9 million max. Ths could be reconciled by the Indian market where the 360 has been released as well, but I don't know if any data exists for that.
Wii sold a bit over 800,000 units in Europe in 2006. That would indicate an average of 250-300k sold in Jan-February. However, this would also mean that Nintendo produced 400k (adjusting for the 4 non January days in NPD Jan data) for the Americas, 450k for Japan, and 250k for Europe. Was Nintendo really producing well over 1 million Wii's in January? My impression was that was starting for March. It is certaintly possible though.
Is an expectation of 1.5-1.75 European Wii's and 3.3-3.6 360's realistic for the time PS3 comes out in March?
