If the Xbox One sales are double, it equals 154k for June, since the Wii U sold 140k, the Xbox One's price drop only gave it a 14k advantage in the US. If they wouldn't have dropped Kinect they would have been heavily outsold by the Wii U. Which is unreal.

Congrats Nintendo.

Xbox One sales didn't double.

So they could have come in third?

Wow!! If the Wii U outsold the Xbox One, the internet is going to explode.


I'm trying to see how the Xbox One matched up with the Wii U. Which IMO is super impressive for the Wii U being that close (or beating them) since Microsoft dropped Kinect.

Like I said I don't think the Wii U won NPD over the XBO, but they definitely won world wide numbers, which is even worse for MS IMO.

Looks like MS used numbers from VGChartz.

7th Jun - 22,486
14th Jun - 38,210
21st Jun - 43,426
28th Jun - 40,104


Note: That is missing beginning and end of June which MS must have accounted for.

VGChartz is never that accurate.

No wonder MS didn't release numbers.

Even if they had doubled May's it would have only meant a small bump in sales over April's numbers. May was low presumably because of the incoming cheaper sku, so April would be the last "real" numbers to compare.

Wow. MS has to be wondering what they can do. I guess they'll ride out the rest of the year and see what happens before considering another price cut.

This has nothing to do with Xbox...literally..nothing.

wonderfulmonkeyman1433d ago

It just goes to show that dropping parts of a system isn't as huge a game-changer as people seem to think it is.
Which is why the Wii U should keep that gamepad.

3DS destroys PS4 in worldwide sales!!! This gen is over already!!

3DS is the future... The future is 3DS

+1 (or a cigar)

They're both doing quite well at the end of the day. It's just that one is selling more than the other. Not much to fret about IMO, especially since I have a 3DS and intend to get a PS4. :)

It's not a serious comment so don't get all flustered over it.

I'm surprised you actually thought he was serious.

MysticStrummer1433d ago

You may need some new batteries in your calculator.

Good numbers for Nintendo. Having two platforms selling decent numbers, roughly 300k total for one month.. not too bad.

gerbwmu1433d ago

It will be interesting to see where the July and August numbers fall to. Nothing really releasing until September for Wii U. If it can keep up some momentum going into September then the rest of the year could be big.

I think there are 17 retail exclusive releases between now and end of 2015 if you count Zelda U and Star Fox U. If Nintendo can keep up that type of production then the console sales will be healthy.

I think with Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2 and Fatal Frame they're all set to appeal to the hardcore audience in Japan (which is good because thus far its just been the casual one). The problem will be NA and EU, though if they promote MK8 and smash its sure to do well in the holidays.
