I never knew NPD tracked Canada sales. Well, not that we have Canada sales as well, PS3 is truly kicking 360's ass WORLDWIDE!

see here

In reality there are 11m xbox 360s and 5.4m ps3s in N/A at the end of june

so the difference between ps3 and x360 in WW sales could be less than 5m

It seems Vgchartz were way off on north american sales of x360

according to numbers released by NPD US and NPD Canada

x360 is around 11 million units in North Aerica
10.4million in Usa and 848000 units in Canada

PS3 is around 5.4 million units in North America
4.9 million in Usa and 484000 units in Canada

Vgchartz has ps3 at 5.4 million and x360 at a whopping 12.1m in North America

It seems, according to your supplied info, that VG chartz got the PS3 sales EXACTLY right, but overstated 360 sales.

Interestingly you quote the ps3 sales to a decimal point (5.4) while you quote the 360 sales at 'around 11mill'.

What's wrong with 11.25 mill?
Did the 250000 extra 360 units not fit your agenda?

Overall, VGchartz does a good job, given the fact they use (only) 5% retail samples in their estimates.

open zone over there --->


cahill3706d ago (Edited 3706d ago )

since we are talking about July sales by now
so 12.2m - 11.5 = 700

for ps3 it should be around 200k extra to the total

so the adjustment should be + 900k for ps3
or -900k for x360

there is no way to spin this
Vg doesnt track sales. those numbers are just random guess works

How much longer can the 360 and PS3 continue while being embarassed by that little white box. They need to do something drastic to turn this race around. And all the while Nintendo hasn't had a price cut or announced coloured Wii's yet.

rbanke3706d ago

I'm sure those Vtech game systems sell alot too...

Real Gambler3706d ago

"We cannot produce the Wii fast enough." "Production cannot meet the demand." Bla bla bla. Yet, you have a 3 million jump (double production) from Sept to Dec. Yes I know you can shave a few unit here in there to make sure you have enough for Christmas, but common, double the numbers like everybody else? Why have the shelves been empty for so long?

man nobody aint worry about no wii its not selling no games except 4 nintendo games and only reason they sell a lot of software is because its either pack in or pack with something
