Forums - Sales Discussion - The Official July 09 NPD Thread (Data at 6:30 PM for 4 weeks ending Aug 1)

I'd say we are about spot on in the hardware department. A little bit of over tracking for the Wii but still in a respectable percentage. But remember NPD isn't THE sales but they do have a better percentage than us. Meaning don't go for exacts here. But great tracking on really everything hardware wise.

Software is well poor. Aside from WSR everything else is depressing. NCAA way down. I think it has to do with the lower sales of the PS2 version and neither the 360 or PS3 versions picking up the slack. Then Fight Night Round 4 has poor sales in it's first full month out. Really other than WSR, the software was dominated by long running Wii and DS titles. Give the others a break considering nothing else big launched but you would still hope for maybe a long running PS3 or 360 title to have had some decent sales.

If Madden doesn't push the 360 over the Wii then Halo ODST will. The PS3 will probably beat the Wii in September too after the price cut.

That's almost a given assuming it has a similar impact of Halo 3, but that won't happen at all.



Wow the Wii is getting pwned. Soon the 360 may outsell it at this rate. Also, the "HD twins" are outselling the Wii by a lot now.



VGChartz did a great job on the hardware this week, with only the Wii differing significantly. Software wise more of a mixed bag, with most in the right ball park, but others like Wii Fit being fairly over tracked and Mario Kart DS significantly under tracked. Now that I think about it why is Mario Kart DS so high, almost above Mario Kart Wii? Overall low sales for everything but the DS, and the 360 doing ok as well. It is disappointing for the Wii that a game that sold of 500k in the month couldn't give a bigger boost. Hopefully all home consoles will be up next month on Wii Sports Resort and Madden.

Tell me, how many PS3's will be sold when the PS3 pricecut happens then?

I'd wager more than 122k.



There will be a price cut for all three consoles this year.

It'll be interesting to see how may 360s are Arcade models. At $199 it'd be a good point to see how much the price is helping MS (and much much a price cut could help Sony and Nintendo)



I merged the Vgc estimate with the NPD numbers, the only significant difference are the Wii numbers, everything else is so spot on I wonder if ioi can accuse them of copying our numbers?!
