No LBP love in the top 20?

There's a good chance it didn't even make the top 30, since there are only 3 non-nintendo spots left.



Did NPD always include NDS as part of the software sales list?  I don't recall ever seeing it as part of the list.  Am I wrong?

Hey, I trust npd numbers more than a random guy on internet saying "wii sells everything nintendo ships". Also it is so amusing that some people don't want even to consider that there could be plenty of wiis sitting at the shelves.

 

I get the feeling in 4 months time you will produce a grainy mobile phone photo of a small stack of Wiis from your nearest store.

 

No need for that, there is even big stacks of wiis available where I live.

 

Thanks for the update on NA wii supplies based on the inventory at the store you checked in the UK. You're really intelligent and your posts are a joy to read.

 



9 Wii titles in the TOP 20.

That's because many DS titles linger around just below the top 10, and usually we only get a top 10 (at least at the beginning). But they have always been included, just check the period when Pokemon Diamond/Pearl released.

 



Ok. I've seen a GREAT discrepancy (please, enlighten me). CoD WaW (Wii) is in 19th for NPD and 112th for VGChartz in Dec08. I guess that its numbers are really undertracked...

So Call of Duty Wii and Shawn White both made the top 20, that is pretty surprising. Certainly when a games like Prince of Persia, Resistance 2, LBP and Guitar Hero 360 didn't make the cut. The last one means the Wii version of Guitar Hero probably outsold its 360 counterpart at least 3-4 to 1, I never expected the gap to be that big.
