Analysis of Americas Sales for the Week Ending March 8th, 2008

Jacob Mazel of VGChartz writes: "For the first time in many, many weeks, no Nintendo software – even the bundled Wii Sports – reached the top five in software sales this week as a number of fairly significant releases appeared on rival platforms. Most notable of all was the PSP, which has not had a top selling title in ages, but saw God of War: Chains of Olympus debut in second place. With all this said, the debut of Smash Brothers on March 9 had shipments estimate at approximately two million units, meaning Nintendo is in for one hell of a rebound next week."

There are some interesting trends developing year over year as well. Take a look:

.......3/8/2008.....3/10/2007.....YoY Change
Wii....69,801........69,507.............0%
DSL..102,677.......145,660..........-30%
PS3...71,730........43,632.........+64%
PSP...71,147........43,461..........+64%
360....80,933........51,125..........+58%
PS2...58,276........70,386..........-17%

Why do we bother with these numbers they're not even close. I'm kind of surprised they're not written in crayon.

He has been posting these malicious VG numbers every now and then

Whats even more alarming is the fact that VG is now claiming that their Jan and February numbers were true?????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ?????????????????????

No it's not the suplly issues becuase they made a price drop with "supply issues' .

The shortages were in NORTH AMERICA only.

The price-cuts were in EUROPE only.
