Forums - Sales Discussion - VGC's numbers used by videogame research firm

And they didn't even acknowledge where the numbers came from, bastards:

John Taylor, videogame analyst, Arcadia Research, said "Shaun White Snowboarding" sold 259,000 copies in the U.S. in November and generated $13.6 million for Ubisoft with 40 percent of those sales for the Wii console.

For comparison, the first two weeks of PS3 + 360 + Wii for Shaun White Snowboarding were: 257,621 and the Wii sold 103,754 copies or 40%.

VGC Ahoy

Tease.

         Doesn't matter for me, because marketing ads don't work on me. bugrimmar has shown me, that only ignorant people fall for marketing ploys, as evidenced in this thread, http://www.vgchartz.com/forum/thread.php?id=53450&page=1. That Domino's ad, I'm seeing right now, certainly isn't going to work, if even though it's such good deal... and so delicious looking... and delivered so quickly. Odd. I wouldn't usually care for Domino's at all, but the people in the ad act like it's orgasmic. Who could refuse food that good? Of course, it will have to wait until, I've tried out a 10-Day FREE Trial of WoW!

         Off the topic that we were never on: Your avatar is on Millionaire Password in the US, right now and surrounded by hot women, naturally. Of Course, Regis Philbin is harassing him, because he's jealous and wants the women for himself.

 



Let the haters hate, but VGC is fast becoming THE source for videogames sales information, bar none.

If it's hosted by Regis Philbin, you don't want to know what it is.

"I think America's got talent! Do you think America's got talent? I do!"

I'm serious. He said that. In a perfect world, Jay Mohr would host every game show in the world.

Its funny how this site went from being the NPD's bitch to a source that easily rivals NPD in terms of depth and amount of raw information.



We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers…Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.  The only thing that really worried me was the ether.  There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge. –Raoul Duke

It is hard to shed anything but crocodile tears over White House speechwriter Patrick Buchanan's tragic analysis of the Nixon debacle. "It's like Sisyphus," he said. "We rolled the rock all the way up the mountain...and it rolled right back down on us...."  Neither Sisyphus nor the commander of the Light Brigade nor Pat Buchanan had the time or any real inclination to question what they were doing...a martyr, to the bitter end, to a "flawed" cause and a narrow, atavistic concept of conservative politics that has done more damage to itself and the country in less than six years than its liberal enemies could have done in two or three decades. -Hunter S. Thompson

The reason gamers have a problem with VGC is simple: They don't like to be reminded of Wii's sales.



PC + Wii owners unite.  Our last-gen dying platforms have access to nearly every 90+ rated game this gen.  Building a PC that visually outperforms PS360 is cheap and easy.    Oct 7th 2010 predictions (made Dec 17th '08)
PC: 10^9
Wii: 10^8

Very true.

And snuggle the girls be they short or tall,
Then follow young Mat whenever he calls,
To dance with Jak o' the Shadows."

According to John Taylor himself, the source for the figures in the Reuters article is NPD.
