How many days was Halo3 out when data was collected?

Holy shit. I forgot that Halo 3 came out on the 25th of September. This only accounts for 5 days but I assume the majority of people who wanted to buy the game bought it in those 5 days...... right?

Nintendo sells over 1 million units of hardware when the DS and Wii numbers are combined.

Heavenly Sword sold surprisingly well even though it didn't get great reviews. This makes me think that both Ratchet and Uncharted are going to sale great as well.

The 360 numbers are not surprising when Halo 3 is taken into account. It's going to be interesting to see if there is going to be a steep decline next month, especially since Sony just lowered the price on the PS3.

Wow- Nintendo sells over 1M units in September.

Yeah, it's incredible. Just amazing that half million DS and half million Wii sold. Much more then what I predicted. But Halo 3 owned the world.

Rather than try and downplay MS numbers this month try to not be as big of a douche and realize how amazing the wii number are.
agreed. even with 360's biggest game, likely of it's entire lifespan, Wii only fell shy by 27K. Kudos to Halo3 for moving some systems, and kudos to Wii for umm.. selling like fucking crazy with their biggest hit of the month: a month old game.

Definitely the biggest news, IMO, is how much PS3 hardware sales have gone down in a time when all hardware rises. They're in deep shit.

Damn, I guess I have to postpone my PS3 purchase until I see if the 40 gigger moves a ton of consoles.

Ahh crap, I forgot it was a 5 week month, my numbers are mostly fudged but at least I got the positions right!

Holy Fucking Shit! @ Halo 3! Around 60-65% of all 360 owners picked it up, That is totally insane! You see Nintendo, THIS is the power of advertising! (poor MP3 :( )

How many days was PH counted for, seems a bit low for a Zelda game!

nice to see a real console on top for once -- hopefully 360 stays strong through the rest of the year

those heavenly sword sales are pretty dismal. i wonder about the chances of a similarly lavish sequel :(

With Mass Effect coming next month.... Microsoft wins Next-Gen '07.
huh??? You think Mass Effect is going to propel systems like Halo??? really? you've already forgotten tremendous games like GeoW and Bioshock barely moving the system sales needle?

The real story (along with Halo's ridiculous numbers) is PS3's complete irrelevence at this point, that price drop better work....

That's just crazy. Wii took 360's biggest nuke and came away with barely a bruise.

so Halo wont move 360's? :lol

Move: yes. Explode or drive very significantly: no. Halo 3 was out for the entire month after all.... But the incredible software's sales are what matters this month.

And Nintendo still laugh....
