Forums - Sales Discussion - Ten Week Countdown 2009!

Well I made some assumptions about American figures and added them to the current PAL+Japan totals, (basically assuming sales will fall to about 40-45% of what they were the previous week, though looking at last year I would suspect it may be too high, it's just that this year it looks so odd having week 9 being the big week that I can't see the immense drop it would take to get on par with last year happening in 1 week)

Anyhow for Americas I assumed: 400k for Wii, 160k for PS3, 200k for X360, 480k for DS and 100k for PSP

If that is close to reality then this will be the ranks for week 10
week 10
1 09tarheel
2 ph4nt
3 koffieboon
4 Darthdevidem
5 postofficebuddy
6 theprof00
7 MANUELF
8 Veggie
9 TWRoO
10 haxxiy
11 Noobie
12 zexen_lowe
13 Pineapple
14 Skeezer
15 Zucas
16 darkjonnyx
17 BHR-3
18 dexorosourus
19 Blacksaber
20 NinjaBlade360
21 non-gravity
22 Carl2291
23 DMeisterJ

And the point differences will cause some shake ups in the overall ranks, so that the top 5 for the 10 weeks added together would be:

09tarheel
koffieboon
Darthdevidem
TWRoO
Veggie

tarheel and koffieboon commanding a particularly impressive lead over the rest of us in points. Although the fact that 3 of us from last year managed the top 5 (and BHR places 6th as well, so 4 in the top 6) seems to show experience can help.

None of this is anything like final of course.... first of all my estimations for America are probably quite poor, but also remember this is still VGC original figures, which won't count to the final ranks (as stated I will be calculating that in May... so a long wait yet) but also hasn't factored in the 10 week totals either... which will also count to your scores.

@theproff00.... How do you get to that figure? For the total 10 weeks you predicted 5,245k.... the VGC originals currently add up to 5,141k, but still have a good 500k at least to add for week 10.
Unless you were using more up to date figures and the PS3 has been adjusted down?
On checking that the PS3 is generally adjusted upward a little in the early weeks, but down a little more in later weeks for a loss of about 40-50k from the VGC originals... it is still going to exceed 5,600k by the looks of it though, 355k more than your total.

All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

But TWROO some of us made the top 5 last year but REMEMBER last year hardly many people participated

making the top5 or top 6 this year is MUCH MUCH more noteworthy than making the top 5 last year

That's why I mentioned it. Top 5 of this year is more equivalent to top 2 of last year.

And I wouldn't start handing out congratulations yet either, they may need to be changed.



@TWROO

ok

I agree they may need to be changed, but its guaranteed your preliminary top 5 are people who have done very very well, especially darthdevidem01 ;)

ioi is just not doing it right for week 9 and 10. That or somehow having the holiday sales starting late made its tail bigger.



also TWROO's predictions are poor :p

I finally won a week!



Wow ... I did think I might be too high for America but they really fell far.

Here are the standings for 10 weeks.... BHR swapped with Veggie compared to my earlier guess (they were only 5 points apart before, now BHR is 1 point ahead)

Turns out that the top two and bottom two for both handhelds and consoles (and thus the overall ranks too) were taken by the same people.
