Did the chart angles. They were close to what shinra-bansho got, and as he posted, they do not work with the numbers we have. Therefore, can't use the chart. :(

On the plus side, we don't need it for consoles! :D

Here's what we got, so far.

1. 3DS - ?
2. XB1 - 908K
3. PS4 - ~860K
4. 360 - 643K
5. WIU - 481K
6. PS3 - 299K
7. WII
8. PSV - ~95K

So how are we doing?
Just need 3DS. :)

because it didn't crack last year's numbers and they didn't say it sold a million, my guess would be anywhere between 920k and 950k.

By mixing Nintendo tracker and NPD tracker, it's over a million. That's for sure. We just don't know how much.

Cream, I'd love to see one of yours 3DS and Vita overall LTD Charts. Like you did last year, remember?

Nintendo sold -11.3% software ($ Revenue) this December compared to last December.

Thanks to the launch of the PS4, Sony's software is up 37.0%.
Where are you getting this info? :p

That's depressing as their line-up was far more robust this December compared to last year's; however, Wii software sales must have severely declined as well and unfortunately the 3DS software catalog did not offset the loss of Wii revenue.

You got Super Mario 3D World numbers? :(

Wow, I saw this thead at 5 pages 7-8 hours ago and now it's over 50 pages. I think Sony wants the global crown and MS just wants USA and Europe. Long term, Sony might edge out the win. I don't know about you guys, but my Xbox One, has been gathering dust, using it mostly for first party exclusives and the PS4 for first and third party moreso.

All I know is my Vita projections are going to have to be revised downward. A platform selling that badly will be quietly phased out in short order. I think 2013 was Vita's last year on the American market. Shipments will be small if nonexistent until Sony announces its discontinuation on store shelves. To get to 20 million units I was hedging on America selling six to seven million units. Now I expect it to be discontinued.

So 13-14 million units WW year 5. That's if the discontinuation does not have an effect on sales in other regions. It could go lower.

I don't think Sony's going to be making handhelds much longer. That's kind of sad. I loved both PSP and Vita in theory. They just never really lived up to their potential of "Home console games on the go."
In what world 80 million PSP sold is not living up to its potential? Some of you, ugh.

480K is "good" or probably more accurately just "a lot higher than expected"... considering how poorly the Wii U has been doing. It's much higher than I personally expected for sure.

It's still terrible in any wider context; e.g. last December Nintendo sold 1.1M units of home console hardware, this December that will only be ~630K.

It's bad compared to past Nintendo December's for the likes of the GCN.

And of course, there's this:

Opposite with me thanks to Dead Rising and Killer Instinct and the voice commands for everything else. Haven't touched my PS4 in weeks but will get all third party stuff on it for sure.

As mentioned above, Microsoft claimed 3m consoles sold WW by the end of December, Sony with 4.5m consoles. So deducting the US totals we have roughly 1.2m for all other regions sold for the Xbox One up to the end of December, and 2.5 million for the PS4.

The problem with people saying that GT6 should have been on the PS4 is that the game still has tons and tons of PS2 "standard" models in its roster of cars. Forza 5 may get chided for lacking in content as far as cars and tracks go, but they made the decision to start from scratch 2 years ago, something Polyphony Digital apparently hasn't done since GT3 in 2001 when they reduced the number of cars from 650 in GT2 to 180 in GT3 (similar to Forza 5 from Forza 4).

And since it took even 5 years to get a full GT game on the PS4, I feel like PS4 owners are going to be waiting forever for a GT game. Hence of course, the existence of Driveclub, which was meant to go head to head against Forza 5.
