Is there a post that breaks down how the companies do the reports? Do they get paid for shipping them or do they just say that to inflate numbers?


They do get paid for shipping them. It's essentially the number that they've sold to stores, as opposed to the number the stores sold to consumers.

3 mil.
So, I guess, that makes 3.5 million units sold.


I think you missed a decimal point. 50,000 = 0.05 million. So 3 million + 50,000 = 3.05 million.


Thank you.

Sony normally states "We've shipped so-and-so many units"
These are Consolidated Sales Nintendo is providing. Here's the breakdown.

Japan - 830k from Dec8-Dec31
US - 1.32m from Nov18-Dec31
Other - 900k from Nov30-Dec31
Total - 3.06 Million Combined Sales


The NPD numbers only indicate 935k sold in the US as of January 30th. You're sure your numbers are "sold" and not "shipped"?

I'm pretty darn positive.

Did you know NPD doesn't track Toys-R-Us, Walmart, Sams Club, South America or 40% of the remaining US market?

We'll find out at the end of March, when they release the fiscal year report. For now, it has sold 3.06 as of January 30th, sorry but I don't know just Nov and Dec. I predict around 5 million sold as of the end of March, but that number was pulled out of my you-know-where.


Thanks to you and everyone else for the info; I found out that the Wii sold 5.84 million in the first 4 months, so 3/4 of that is ~ 4.38 million in the first 3 months. So the Wii U lags behind the Wii. Anyone want to crunch numbers for other systems?
Which is more mature: playing a game where you can shoot people or seeing those games and deciding not to play them?
Yes, I formerly had a Pokemon Gen VI sig.
