Wedbush Morgan and the EEDAR have provided their estimates for the November 2010 NPD sales data.
PsP Go was foolish :(
Wedbush numbers seem a little off, I still don't see 360 outselling Wii in November. No matter what happens throughout the year, Wii always seems to sell like crazy in November. If these numbers are anywhere near close to the real numbers though, they are incredible sales all round. Even PSP sales are ok at 200k
I am yet to buy a wii... bought as PS3 and an xbox so far... but the release of Donkey Kong Country Returns has got me tempting. I still think nintendo wins the platform genre, it's just a shame they're on a lack lustre system.
Yea, no way in hell either console is going to sell like that. We're still in a recession, and if they're looking at VGChartz numbers, they'd probably come to that conclusion but yeah 1.m in a month is highly unlikely.
Yes, EEDAR looks at VGChartz to put together their predictions. Facepalm.
Yea, disagree with the fact that America is still in a recession? I seriously doubt that any console hit the million mark because of this. Too bad, NPD doesn't release the numbers anymore. People can now say anything they want. I also wasn't saying they base their analysis on VGC numbers. I'm saying as high as these numbers are, they look like they've been looking at VGC. ct03: No matter what i say you're going to find some excuse to disagree with it.
So, the US wasn't in a recession last year? Let's face it, the US economy was far worse last year and Nintendo sold 1.26 million consoles then. There is no reason why that can't happen again. It would surprise me if Xbox 360 didn't do 1.2 million consoles considering last year they did 800k when they had the most competition breathing down their neck i.e. PS3's and Wii's price cut!
You forget we Americans have a mystical power called extreme credit card debt. Christmas is one of those times of year that we "must" spend money we don't have.
only reason I dont buy a wii is I cant stand their controller. It might be great for wii sports or what ever but playing DKC or zelda with it sucks
If the are true great numbers all around.
pretty insane numbers there wow
The sales for the Xbox 360 are really strong after 5 years... congratulations Microsoft!!!
''November 2010 NPD predictions'' lol...
I wish I had a job just making numbers up.
The naivety on this site is sometimes breathtaking. You think professional analysts roll a dice when making sales predictions? They'd be out of a job in no time.
this is only for america which is worthless. Worldwide it still goes wii,ps3,360
Not sure it is worthless, after all, it is a pretty big market. It seems people like gaming in hard economic times....
Why are you Sonyfanboys so concerned about other countries? We are in america.
I'm not. oO Why xbox fanboys thinks the whole world is inside america ??
because America = world. You should know that.
I'm not in the U.S.
Is sad to see a better system like the PS3 sell less than other crap.
Doesn't Patcher work for these folks. How are these numbers any more reliable than his predictions. In fact, Patcher himself may have used his calculator watch to figure these out. "Patcher, use your new calculator watch to come up with some sales numbers. I want them on my desk in the morning. Don't worry, they don't have to be accurate" -Together we can work to maintain the video game industries integrity and keep excessive greed TFO. They should learn from hollywood's mistakes.
These are not real numbers guys. ~.~
Take aways from these predictions... First off...we have to remember these are predictions (educated guesses) so nothing is set in stone. That all said both analyst companies appear to be close in numbers so I think its pretty safe to say the real numbers should be coming in pretty close to this. I find the gap in the Wii numbers pretty interesting and the PS3 numbers are to be honest pretty drab all things considered. Atleast in N. America it doesn't appear that GT5 or Move will have had a significant impact on console sales. Also, based on Nintendo's telling us it sold 600K+ on Black Friday also shows just how poorly its been performing for the rest of the month. I mean Nintendo really went for it on Black Friday. I think every major store had some kind of Black Friday Wii deal that was an actual deal / price reduction of some kind. Again, this ofcourse is all based on their speculation.
If we are going by sonyfanboy logic only two of those games you listed were actualy good. 3d dot,WKC,GT all got low scores. So Halo reach is right ps3 did have any good exclusive but GoW3,HR
the 360 have the games that sell the most which means they have the most popular games. You guys bitch and moan about exclusives but no one is buying them. The Ps3 is a far more superior product in technical terms but I guess the general public doesn't care about 1080p, cell processors, SPE's etc. You guys love to talk about AAA titles and metacritic but Bestbuy, Walmart, and Gamestop are not in the business of selling "arthouse games" they want stuff that is going to move units. For some odd reason you all can't wrap that around you simple way of thinking. The consumers vote with their money. I own a Ps3 as well so I am no fanboy.
Owning more than one console doesn't prevent you from being a fanboy. Your post shows clear bias, because you state that no one is buying PS3 exclusives, which isn't true. You may not like the fact that PS3 exclusives sell, but that won't take away their sales. It's funny how some 360 fans love to talk about sales, yet refuse to acknowledge Nintendo's complete sales dominance in the current gen, or Sony's strong sales performance. Sales only matter when it comes to MS, I suppose?
What general public do care is how superior Ps3 game compare to multi platform or xbox exclusivity. Evidence. Uncharted 2 set a record for the most won GotY awards for any video game ever, with 100 different media outlets.
@Father Murder X... I dont care if you are really bias one way or another, what you are saying is very true. The big retailers only care about what stuff they can sell and what kind of deals they are getting from the manufacturers to promote said product. I mean if all these retailers cared about the best tech then how or why did the Wii get promoted so heavily on Black Friday when everyone under the sun knows its dated tech now and really starting to show its age? Answer lies in the deals Nintendo made to slash prices, etc...
