As for PS3.... same numbers as last month? Not surprising.

I think both the 360 and the PS3 need a price drop. We are quickly becoming WiiNation.

------May-----April----March
360:154,932; 174,000; 199,000
PS3: 81,604; 82,000; 130,000
Wii: 338,278; 360,000; 259,000

Very interesting. Wonder if the wii's 338k is their current max production? Don't know how the ps3 dreams of catching the 360 with thoes kind of sales number and the lead 360 already has...not to mention on the verge of Halo 3. Looks like the Wii might catch 360 but i have a feeling the gta4 / halo 3 xmas combo will keep 360 on top at least until next year.

Indeed, I made a killing over at The SimExchange on the PSP stock this month, and on the PS3 btw by shorting the hell out of it.

It is looking like for the 3rd straight month (only 3 months The SimExchange has been doing it) we had the most accurate prediction in the industry, even beating out VG charts (as much as 50% off on some numbers) and Pachter's predictions.

Likely within the next couple days The Blog on the SimExchange will update and release comparison % on the various predictions like they did last month.


Everyone over estimated 360 sales, underestimated PSP and PS3 sales, and overpredicted Wii sales, it was released later that there were Wii shortages that impacted sales in both Canada and the US.

Between Canada and the US the Wii and DS are cleaning house, and I believe the 70k lead this month from the 360 more than makes up for any gains made in Europe, possibly even Europe and Japan by the PS3. If these numbers stay like they are the 360 will stay ahead of the PS3 at least until the Christmas Season in Worldwide sales, and the Wii will only trail behind the 360 in Worldwide sales by about 2 million when the Christmas season starts.

Keep in mind that the Summer is traditionally slower and that sales pick up again in about September.

The Wii number dropped due to shipment issues, they just opened a new plant in Brazil, which will show up in the June numbers IIRC.

As far as the GTA4/Halo 3 mix, I am not sure, the Wii is predicting 16 million Wii's shipped by the end of the Year, if demand stays constant until the end of the year (likely) that means at least 14 million will be sold by then, the 360 is a little over 11 million so far, so the question is, will the Halo 3/GTA IV combo sell 3-5 million 360s in one quarter, I think it's at least possible, but not likely.

Considering npd is US only yeah. But i think that's a huge understatement with how poor ps3 is doing in japan. 360 had a 6 million lead + it's still selling more units month to month.

It had a huge lead, but in Europe and Japan the PS3 has been consistently outselling the 360.

The only question is, by how much has the PS3 been outselling the 360 and is it more or less than the 360 has been outselling the PS3 in the US.

My suspicion is that it's about equal, maybe +/- 10-15k/month for either console, certainly not a wide enough gain for the PS3 to be making any gains in marketshare overall, whereas the Wii has just been taking off.

You link to NeoGAF, but you don't acknowledge their predictions being the "best in the industry". You should look at the prediction thread and the ending results.

Perhaps their article will compare that site?
