July NPD: Wii Tops All, PS3 Almost Matches 360

Who said summer was slow? July was fueled by NCAA Football, Guitar Hero and continued Wii and DS sales. The PS3 didn't beat 360 in unit sales as some analysts had predicted, but it was close. For the year, the industry could reach an incredible $18 billion, NPD's Anita Frazier told GameDaily BIZ.

Wii 425 k
Nintendo DS 405 k
PlayStation 2 222k
PlayStation Portable 214k
Xbox 360 170k
PlayStation 3 159k
Game Boy Advance 87k

NINTANDO MAKING HELL ALOT OF MONEY,they do not take lose in hardware

the truth to be said: 360 still outsell ps3. ps3 not only had the price cut but also system seller in july NGS + new 80GBPACK. there was an increase in ps3 sales but that was not in the account of 360 sales. what will happened from now and on . 360 got price cut and biggest system seller HALO3 and the edge in3rd party games+FALCON will be introduced....... sony should for once question their strategy

In JAPAN a total of 80 000 ps3s were sold last month

In JAPAN just 12 000 x360s were sold last month

In EU around 130 000 ps3s were sold last month
compared to just 50000 x360s

In NA the margin is 11000 + for x360

x360 total = 170 +50 +12 =232 000

ps3 total = 159+ 130 + 80 = 369 000

Therefore PS3 has beaten x360 by 131 000 units

PS3 is the victor!!!

VG charts are pretty accurate
Remember 360 was outselling PS3 by over 100k a month according to the NPD. That's 25k a week. PS3 price Drop didn't happen till July 9 a week into July. Which means PS3 was probably already down 25k in July when the price drop went into affect. And at the end of the month 360 outsold PS3 by 11k.

Means PS3 outsold 360 in those 3 weeks after the price drop. Remember vg charts reporting PS3 outselling 360 for the weeks after the price drop by amounts like 6k, 11k, 5k?

Makes sense to me but... I don't know. Can someone please mathematically correct where I'm wrong.

(EDIT: Someone said that the tracking dates of these NPD figures is from July 8th to August 4th.

If that's true, then I take back my theory about PS3 price only taking effect 3 weeks in July. But it doesn't say that on the article. Sorry, I assume that sales figures for July mean 1-31.

Where can I confirm the tracking dates?)

Jeremy Gerard3434d ago

it could still turn into a flame war, everyone said the PS3 was going to outsell the 360, that did not happen, so we may see a lot of 360 fanboys saying i told you so, and a bunch of PS3 fanboys trying to save face and claiming the numbers are wrong, or just all out trying to spin this news into a PS3 win.

JokesOnYou3434d ago

Are you kiddin me, all you have to do is go back and look at alot of the Pro ps3 Amazon posts in July and all you will see is a bunch of sony kids talkin shiii about how this was the begining of the end for 360 and how ps3 would now start to outsell the 360, ha ha many said wait for NPD #'s but NO sony kids could only see that sales for the ps3 picked up so that automatically meant micro's doom, ha ha damm it must hurt when reality smacks you in the face=

JOY

barom3434d ago

It's still pretty good for PS3 though. X360 actually went down on sales while PS3 went noticeably up. Gap is closing, but the Gap might just become just as wide as it once was considering X360's price cut recently. It's all good. More wars = more price cuts = happy me

ThaGeNeCySt3434d ago

VGChartz isn't as accurate as you think

larry0073434d ago

Thats right

The ps3 won in JULY. There is no doubt abt that.

NPD's data is inconsistent since it only estimates numbers but DOESNT TRACK ACTUAL SALES.

The only INSTITUTION which track actual sales are GFK

***************************** ******************************* ****

Dave Karraker, the Sony spokesman who predicted the PS3 would overtake the 360, said that: (1) He was only wrong by a bit, and (2) NPD doesn’t provide an exact count but estimates some portions of the market and (3) No, he would not care to make a prediction about August’s sales figures.

It is obvious that MS paid NPD to do dirty tricks

PS3 was close I didn't think PS3 would beat the Xbox 2, 360 out sold PS3 by too much before the clearance and only was selling a meer few thousnad more a week(6k-8k)after the clearance started, So basiclly the one week(1st) was too great for PS3 to beat Xbox 2.

mikeslemonade3434d ago

This is only North America. You count worldwide and when you consider PS3 sells 20,000+ every week compared to 360's 2,500 units then PS3 is selling at a faster rate than 360 worldwide.

Daishi3434d ago

If theoretically the 360 came out day and date with the PS3 then it would still be ahead at this point and time by a few 100k units. At this rate the "console war" won't be decided until sometime in 2011. The one thing most people don't take into account is that this is 5 years after the start of the last "war" and there are millions upon millions of more gamers out there meaning that there is enough room for 3 perfectly healthy consoles. 1st and 2nd and 3rd place have already been decided (DS,Wii,PSP) so it's a fight for fourth place.

Zhuk3434d ago

it didnt beat 360 like fanboys said it would, strange

This makes perfect sense.
