I AM THE MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE GODDESS.

USING THE LAWS OF SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS, I SHALL PROVE THE FOLLOWING FORMULAS:



Wii U + XBOX family < PS4

Wii U + Xbox One + Xbox 360 < PS4

61K + 77K + 57K < 197K

195K < 197K

PROVEN BY THE LAWS OF SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS

Q.E.D.



200k > PS4 > 100k > XBO > Wii U > 360 > 50k > PS3 > Wii

200K > (197K PS4) > 100K > (77K XBO) > (61K Wii U) > (57K 360) > 50K > PS3 > Wii

PROVEN BY THE LAWS OF SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS

Q.E.D.



From the NPD archives
May 2014: Nintendo 3DS: 82K~100K (I'm taking a liberal range since we haven't figured out what it is yet.)
May 2013: Nintendo 3DS: 225K (45.2%) (of total console sales in May 2013)
May 2012: Nintendo 3DS: 113.5K (+17%) (from MoM)[Comes from Anita Fraizer statement below and last year's result.]
May 2011: Nintendo 3DS: 97K

It took 4 years but the 3DS is roughly where it started out as....

IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE.

THE BEGINNING OF THE 3DS IS ALSO THE END.



AND NOW I RISE TO THE HEAVENS.

We already have numbers, just look for SwiftDeath's summary post.

Hmm, so I'm only 1K off for 3DS. Awesome.

Someone could make a long gif of each of the systems successively failing the vault, lol.

Either someone edited the post or its another one (seen a 'quoted for future reference' for GTA V in another thread...) but here is what I was talking about:

"someone edited the post".

Right.

wash_dogs did better than expected, so did MLB. Why are you calling me out?
I stand by the rest of my comments - console gaming isn't looking super rosey despite that.
EDIT: and by MLB 'doing ok' its doing ok by the standards of what looks like an overall low selling software chart.

So with June being a 5 week month... could both the 3DS and Wii U top 100K next month? I actually could see Tomodachi Life & June in general pushing hardware a little bit so that WoW the 3DS stays about the same at this month at worst putting it over 100K.

I seriously do think the Wii U will at least do 100K next month. It just needs to have a 25% WoW which MK8's continued sales and their pretty good E3 showing should provide imo. (Just was at Target and apparently their MK8 bundles have been sold out constantly throughout the area according to an employee. I only brought this up because he just got a call asking about it =). It got worse after the E3 week apparently too. Purely anecdotal but still).

wii u sales are going to be hard to gauge. it did 15k/week this month, up from the 12k/week in april, but 41% of those sales came from two days of mario kart 8 bundle sales (and who knows how many other wii us were sold on just those two days).

it's important because wii u sales were apparently up 4.1x the daily amount prior to mk8's launch. the most that could be would come from an average of the 27 other days of sales, spread across 36k units, which is roughly 1,333 units a day. so the upper-limit for this amount would be 5,465 units a day, for 38,257 a week. if reggie was looking at the most recent sales data as of that interview, then that's 10 days of sales for 54,650 units- again, an upper-limit for the month of june at that point in time. that might be a pretty hard sell with still a few weeks to go and interest waning, especially considering it's the most optimistic outlook.

unfortunately i cannot find the 'daily' quote that was used here.

the quote i was able to find mentions sales of week after the game's release, indicating june 1-7, the week before e3. 4.1x that amount would be a minimum of about 102,000 units for the first week of june. that would frankly be insane, and at that point, even 200,000 for the month of june wouldn't be out of order.

i can't find out if the quote came from some sort of video interview, so i don't kno which one is correct.

Wow, less than 200k for PS4 with Watch Dogs bundle? I really didn't expect that, it seems the hype cooled down.

Happy for Vita

Seems like the XBO is still declining larger in sales vs the PS4....MS has to be in full panic mode right now. XBO sales and PS4 sales somewhere in this NPD thread last month:


http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=819775&page=50

PS4...might as well say its holding steady.

"someone edited the post".

I mean someone edited the 'quoted for future reference' response to this. This and a GTA V PS4 port post stood out to me, thats all. Either that or I found the wrong post. Either way, some, maybe many underestimated The Show selling well.

THE BEGINNING OF THE 3DS IS ALSO THE END.



AND NOW I RISE TO THE HEAVENS.

Noted.

Updated numbers:

From the NPD archives
May 2014: Nintendo 3DS: 97K (From Aquamarine)
May 2013: Nintendo 3DS: 113.5K (NPD added that the 3DS was basically flat to last year, which was a 113.5K result. Presumably it was up slightly as it was over the Xbox 360's 114K.)
May 2012: Nintendo 3DS: 113.5K (+17%) (from MoM)[Comes from Anita Fraizer statement below and last year's result.]
May 2011: Nintendo 3DS: 97K

I was going to post that! No way!

I think we all get a little silly late on NPD nights. :p

Because it's so late, nobody cares about this thread anymore.

It's moving super slowly and all of the SHEEPLE from the other, LAME sites have all gone to sleep.

And guess what? They won't come back. They have a treasure trove of numbers they won't even discover because they just check it once at 7:30 PM and call it a night.

donny2112, make sure you add Chartzzzzz to the prediction tally this month. They failed quite hard as usual.

I wonder how long it'll take MK8 to outsell SM3DW, that one should be about 600-700k now, right?

Yeah, I feel bad for them too. ND under Sony became the best studio...and Insomniac, eh...

Anyway, X1 couldn't even break out of the 100k range in NA?
The 2.56x gap is pretty bad since WW numbers belong to Sony.

Drop the price on everything, horrendous numbers for all except a mediocre PS4 result.

The PS4 number isn't mediocre, it's good, but not great either. You are right though, there definitely needs to be some serious price cutting going on (Wii U, Vita, PS3, 360) The Xbox One at the very least needs a pack in game, or possibly another $50 price drop before the end of the year

This is the article I was referring to: http://venturebeat.com/2014/06/13/r...t-nintendo-is-doing-for-a-comeback-interview/


Reggie's quote: We announced not just that we&#8217;ve sold 1.2 million units on a global basis, but we announced to the financial community here in the United States that Mario Kart 8 has increased the sell-through of the Wii U hardware business by a factor of four. In the two weeks prior to the launch, versus what we&#8217;ve seen now following the launch, we&#8217;re selling at a daily rate four times higher than where we were before.

Get back to me when Sony wins over 2 years in a row straight of NPD numbers.

Hell, I'm just glad Sony is announcing NPD numbers now, and that the Sony fan is excited for NPD numbers these days as well!

Dude everyone knew since April that May numbers for XB1 would be shit, why so defensive?

EDIT: Nevermind, just noticed he banned.
