My Predictions (From GAF) 300k
Wow. What a month. The Wii exceeded my expectations considerably. The Xbox 360 did 70K more than I expected and the PS3 did quite a bit worse than I expected. In fact, it seemed like I overshot all the Sony numbers. Looks like that price drop for Microsoft isn’t just a one time surge. Congrats to Microsoft and the price cut.
The ball is in your court, Sony.
Software wise, I had an inkling that Fable II would top the charts. The lack of Fallout 3 in the top 10 is very odd. Did all that talk about the Xbox 360 version being superior stop people from picking it up? (I know it did for me.)
The LittleBigPlanet numbers can be taken as disappointing, but you have to consider the niche aspect of it. Not everyone gets it. I watched the TV commercials and I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of mainstream gamers out there brushed it off as a child’s toy. No guns, no go. I guess it’s also worth mentioning that LBP was available on store shelves for only four days.
I wonder if the Dead Space numbers will disappoint EA. I mean, it is a new IP which lacked a demo. I hope their expectations were realistic.
