...WHYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!! :lol

Why 75k for 3DS, when in May it did 117k and June is a 5-weeks month? WHYYYYYYY?!?!

Honestly I don't even know why I typed that lol. I definitely thought it would do around 100k and I thought the 3DS sold less than 100k in May.

Edit: Yeah the 3DS revision news likely had very little impact on 3DS sales. To be honest, isn't their some lowered expecations to be celebrating 155k?

Don't forget PSP+Vita is ~100K from the handheld Nintendo marketshare comment.

You seem easily impressed.
155k for the 3DS in a 5 weeks month is nothing to brag about.

But 3DS - 130K to 155+k

thats kind of understimating

Ok, but please, calm down and don't be Nintendo's...err...urgh, what would be the most comparable Sony fan for him? If lunchwithyuzo is Nintendo's Takao, who can be Stealth?

June #NPD Numbers are in: Xbox 360 sold 257K consoles marking 18 months as the top-selling current-generation console in the U.S

Pretty impressive- outpaced our predictions this month. 5 week month though which should temper enthusiasm a bit.

I'm happy to admit that I underestimated Nintendo sales. It's not bad to be wrong. There were factors that I either didn't consider enough or that I totally spaced on. We learn, though, and try to do better moving forward.

With the Xbox numbers I just realized that this was a 5 weeks month, I made my prediction based on a 4 weeks month.......LOL :/
So well.....I don't think that Nintendo has a lot to be happy with...not to mention Sony with Vita but at least they have PS3 as a bright spot at this point.

I think this month could confirm something I started thinking some time ago: in this times of crisis, people spend money when they have it, literally. Concentration of purchases when there are some occasions ( beginning of Summer, Black Friday sales, Holiday, salaries ) and pretty big drops compared to the same months of other years when these don't happen.

Damn, my initial predictions were closer before I revised after the general doom and gloom sentiment...

Also, for PSP the average weekly sales have been around the 6K mark for Feb and Mar based on Nintendo charts. Not sure if they'd be lower now.

That would mean around 70K for PSV if it held through until June though.

3ds outsold ps3 in the US last week I thought, and it has potential too this week. Nintendo has alot to be happy about as does microsoft both saw growth

Where do you get weekly sales? :O
Btw not really, 3DS is not doing the numbers it should do to be considered truly successful, even Iwata/Nintendo acknowledged it, and let's be honest, everything under 200k monthly in the US is kinda weak.
At this point the only products doing relatively well are the 360 and PS3 and both are down yoy.

Edit: I see you've edited:

Yeah MS running the free 360 thing is the likely cause of the big spike.

It would be pretty terrible if the 3DS wasn't number 1 in August with a 2d Mario release and the XL. Those are basically what Nintendo is betting their 3DS FY on.

I could be way off, which is why I added the qualifier. You didnt listen to what iwata said, 3ds sales are normal in the west ( momentum is different) and higher than what the ds was doing and that needed 2+ years to stabilize. The sales are fine, for now.......


@Satchel

yeah but they cant say they topped the charts
