I think it's kinda weird how VGchartz have been having certain systems ahead by a large amounts for the months lately, their sales have really been off by alot as well. Like March for example, VGChartz had the 360 ahead by 120k, but when the NPD report dropped, it was only ahead of the PS3 by 34k. They also had the PS Vita at 150k for the month of March in the US, but when the NPD report dropped, it actually sold 200-225k.

even though i know its fake its sad that the kinect star wars game really is probably selling good which is disturbing. Make a terrible game that cost little and get great sales, why would they make a good game that costs alot and would still sell good when they could make the terrible game and make much more profit? Thats what they will be thinking, forget what the fans want make the bad games we make more on them.

That's why it's under rumors...those are estimates, not a "source"

I think it sold over 400k world wide.

I hope it sales over 1 million copies. That will completely build a sub market that kinect can be marketed to directly and pull them away from the regular gaming media that seems to be in a campaign hold kinect back from broadening its appeal and market.

This game was actually really good, and its good to see good sales for it.

Also considering that this is only 4 days worth of sales.... it released on 4/3.

This chart is packed full of winning material.

Congratulations to Nintendo and the Nintendo 3DS entertainment system for selling enough units to be honored as the number 1 handheld in the USA. With the Nintendo Wii trugging along at the end of its lifespan still providing the Elite Nintendo gamers with AAA quality exclusives till the end. With Nintendo Wii entertainment system exclusive Xenoblade Chronicles selling a respectable amount. Landing just under starwars for the number 2 position in the top 10. Amazing results for a Japanese rpg in America.

Also with no doubt congratulations to Microsoft and the Xbox 360 for Dominating the charts once again, hardware and software. The 360 Kinect is beginning to flex its muscles and put up great results as expected. Also noted that 6 of the top 10 games on the chart belong to the xbox 360 console. Beautiful attach rates.

Both companies did an amazing job and let's hope the momentum continues into next week. The numbers above show the importance of AAA exclusive titles. Starwars. Xenoblade, and Kid Icarus have done well enough as exclusives to drive that point home. Filling the top 3 positions with purified exclusive greatness. Have a good day and happy gaming.

Rated E For Everyone

Well Kinect Star Wars is selling good and surprisingly it seems to be a bit of a system seller. Looks like people went and bought that new Star Wars themed console to go with the game.

I'll say it before and I'll say it again, Kinect Star Wars is fun, its like a summer action movie, it wont win awards but its still fun.

Most the people who dog it here have never touched a Kinect or the game. Funny how that works.

Anyway, I think people might be a bit jealous because the game is selling so good. Let people like what they want, I mean Raccoon City was panned by critics, but if you listen to the people who actually played it, they like and enjoy the game.

Let people enjoy what they want without being slammed for it.

Personally, I only enjoyed the dancing bit of star wars kinect, but my little brother loved the entire game. Though I'm glad to see all companies doing excellent this late in the console cycle.
