Izuno could you get sales information on like the top 10 or 20 selling games of all time? I tried to find one via good the other day and most lists confirm SMB, Tetris, SMB3 as the top 3. Confirm it plz :)

Erm...yeah i can get that...but it's a pain with NPD's system because it doesn't aggregate over all years, plus some products, such as Half-Life have multiple skus and it doesn't know how to group them. So don't expect anything soon (honestly I wouldn't have time to crank that out but I will eventually need that for some other competitive analysis.

Doom 3 will definately sell more than 200 thousand units. Our entire Best Buy region sold out of copies of Doom 3 by five PM, soooo... that's quite a shitload. Also, there are waiting lists and such for the next shipments to come in and blah... yeah. :ninja:

keep in mind the poll is for first week sales.

  • 2 weeks later...

I just pulled data today from NPD's game retail area. Interesting results:

Week of_________Units Sold____Dollar Revenue_____Average Price

07/25/04________281_________$15,018____________$53.45

08/01/04________110,926_____$5,885,326__________$53.06

08/08/04________42,646______$2,173,508__________$50.97

I'm not sure if this is raw scantron data or if this has been "grossed up" to account for Walmart and the rest of the market that doesn't report to NPD. (I think it is the estimate of 100% of US market)

Not sure whtat the week 7/25 is cause i didn't htink it was on sale then.

So it seems the real "week 1" is the 8-1-04 week where it went on sale 8-3-04 (Tuesday) and it did about 110,000 units.

If i can get more information I will provide.
