    Wow, MGS4 really did sell huh? Much better than I expected at least. My prediction was 500k units...But it did almost 800k, not including bundles. Not bad at all.

    Check out those DS and Wii numbers though, still going strong! At least the PS3 is finally putting up a fight against the 360! About damn time too, selling about twice as many units. Hopefully everything will even out eventually. I say Nintendo is winner of this gen, and stalemate between Sony and MS. :p

    MGS4...the show stopper! I think the thing already sold 3+million worldwide....congrats Mr. Kojima the game is excellent.

    I'm not really surprised by these number really....The PS3 has been up this whole year so good for Sony and more games for me.

    Nintendo did create a beast well two actually but now focus Nintendo...we need games.

    I wonder how many bundled units of PS3/MGS4 sold?

    I'm guessing around 200k? Remember they didn't produce many of those units, so they had to rush to produce more after the initial shipment got eaten up. I'm guessing if they had produced a lot more, then they would have sold a lot more of those bundles.

    I know a lot of people who bought that bundle in the past month, and a lot more people talking PS3 vs 360 as well. Looks like the 360s RROD might be biting MS in the a$$ after all, since everyone that I've talked to about the 360 (they're fanboys btw), is wanting to get a PS3 instead because they don't wanna deal repair/exchange.

    It'll be interesting to see the NPD for this month though. We'll see if MGS4 stays in the top 10 for another month, and I think it'll die off the month after. As for console sales, Nintendo is still going to be king. I'm guessing the PS3 will drop back down to 250k, and 360 will probably be the same as well, due to the pseudo price cut.

    Some members on NeoGaf are posting NPD tallys from all of '08 saying that PS3 is outselling the 360 by ~250k units so far. Good news for Sony if thats true although Sony did just drop it's biggest (and probably last) AAAA 3rd party exclusive.

    No so much luck in the UK, MGS4 has already dropped off the Top 10. WiiFit came back into stock and is now #1, followed by Lego Indy and then Brawl.

    Surprisingly (or maybe not) Mario Kart Wii is 2 places higher than MGS4 here :eek:

    IIRC (since I can't find the Japan sales now) it's also stopped selling well in Japan. Heh, and I thought it would have been the other way around - okay sales in US, massive sales in Japan and EU.

    So what will be the next big system-pushing game for Sony? Probably Little Big Planet?

    Does Nintendo usually do that well in Germany? I always thought it was a PC centric market?

    edit: ah, PC games not there.
