I give you props for posting it first if that's what you're looking for (based on the post timestamps) but I don't see how a comment on page 4 of a thread whose subject says MS sales doubled from last month would make it not deserve it's own thread.

Someone coming to look for the NPD results released today at 6pm should not be expected to look at page 4 of the comment on a story from yesterday.  Furthermore NPD numbers are not MS specific and that thread is in the Microsoft specific subforum.

If those numbers are credible then there is hope for Xbox One fans on MS catching up to Sony.  The only week they got dominated was week 1 and didn't the price cut go into effect on the 7th or something.  If you guess MS would have sold about 20k more that first week if it was available at the lower price then they may have edged out Sony for the month.  That bodes well for them for next month.

A separate topic for all hardware and software discussion is fine.

Those numbers are out. We know both the Wii U and X1 figures are closer to 140K and 150K respectively.

You know 180k is "more than double" right (which is what MS said)? It could very well be that for all you know. Not that vgchartz is particularly reliable.

I don't care about getting props. Not sure why you'd assume that.

I don't like how they combine all the platforms instead of break them out.

Really Mario Kart dominated because it sold that many on a single platform.  Watch Dogs beat it but only by combining sales across 5 platforms.  Wait till the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Minecraft are released, it's probably going to be in the charts for a long time with combined sales.


BTW Wii U is doing okay.

Since the launch of Mario Kart 8.  If you bought one at launch that's a LONG time to wait for a great game though.

Yes I'm aware, and you'll also be aware we're working with estimates. MS never announced numbers for May. We're going on the assumption they sold 77K and doubling it to get 154K minimum. All we know for a fact is it's more than Nintendo's number which we can work out closer due to a 233% increase over June 2013's NPD.

 

VGC also "reported" 100K+ for X1 in May, which would mean they're contradicting MS if they did "more than double" but only report 180K for June...

Until we know the actual sales numbers, then we can't say if the sales numbers are close or if the ps4 vastly outsold the X1 again.

If the numbers are close, then that could be considered a win for MS. If it is not, then that could be an issue, or it could be due to a lack of new content for that month.

Sony should really share the numbers since they were first after all.

So, um, boil all of this down. Do we have any real numbers or is this all educated guesswork?

I'm seeing you guys arguing over these numbers, but with no clear answer.

Will we get real sales numbers?

Why do we continually have these threads? :huh:  Can't we just have a U.S Monthly sales data thread the same as the Japan one.
