Nintendo meets shipment target, Sony misses

Both Nintendo Co. Ltd. and Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. have been committed to shipping six million units of their latest home consoles by last Saturday, respectively.

While no official figures have been made available yet, reliable estimates clearly show that Nintendo has met that goal, while Sony seems to have missed it.

Videogame Charts pegs current sales thus:

Wii: 6,47 million

Xbox360: 9,86 million

PlayStation3: 3,07 million

NexGen Wars paints a similar picture:

Wii: 5,3 million

Xbox360: 10,9 million

PlayStation3: 2,5 million

While it is important to point out that the two companies have committed to shipment numbers rather than sales, Nintendo has actually sold through the amount they intended to ship.

Sony, on the other hand, must have the same amount of consoles in transit or sitting in stores as they have sold so far, in order to make good their prediction. That is very, very unlikely. If true, after all, it would prove that millions of units are gathering dust in shops around the world, which would be very, very bad news.

Soon, each company will release financial statements that sum up the past fiscal year, including final shipment numbers. Stay tuned for the exact figures. It is already clear, however, that Nintendo will more than meet their target, while Sony will have no good news in store for investors.

Falafel, sega is making NiGHTS 2 for wii, that should be your new news topic : - )

Hi Lord_Darcia.

Thanks for your suggestion, but I´ve covered it already.

Grandmaster B said...

Heh Darcia. Get with the times!

Anyway back on topic. I sincerely hope Sony to not keep failikng because I really do not wish MS to become stronger in the gaming market. If this was MS who manufactured the PSX and PS2 with that market lead, it would be so so hard for anyone to get back into the market with MS's financial power.

So Sony lift your game just a little but not too much ok?

Grandmaster: I'm personally hoping that Sony does feel the hurt this generation. The past year has shown an immense amount of hubris, not only from SCE, but from the company as a whole. Rootkits, DRM, lawsuits against customers, offensive [borderline racist] ads, and the most insulting form of astroturfing that I've ever lain eyes on only help to cement this belief in my eyes.

I don't want to see Sony bow out completely, but I DO want to see this financial albatross cause changes in management, as well as a new outlook on how the customer should be treated (basically, don't bite the hand that feeds you).

Lord_Darcia said...

oh whoops sorry. but now they have actual game play pictures lol.

Good Lord, don't include numbers from NexGenWars in your articles if you want to bee seen as a serious source of accurate data. They extrapolate based on trends and propaganda, where (the new domain) uses only officially published numbers (such as NPD).

When I begin to play this Seal Online game, I first go to buy seal online cegel to buy some my favorite and beautiful clothes to dress up my character. I have spent cheap seal cegel to buy my favorite cloth. I mean we have anime and some necessary seal online cegel based games that do not look really kid dish. Though I will admit with my own seal cegel I went crazy on leveling with DECO. Some of the skills that we can use our sealonline cegel to improve to look amazing, and are fun to just watch honestly.
