New North American (NPD) Sales Thread
« on: March 06, 2004, 11:35:15 PM »
I've decided to make another North American sales thread.

The last thread was locked because it spun into an argument about sports games. So let's try to stay on topic this time.

Here are the numbers from the first thread, plus some new ones.

I also dug up a whole bunch of hardware-sales-related PGC links.

February 03:
Nintendo (sort of) follows Microsoft's lead by giving away a free game with their $149 GameCube.
Linkie

If you preorded Wind Waker, you'd get Ocarina of Time and the unreleased Master Quest as a preorder goodie.
Linkie
Linkie
Some stores were taking to selling the disks, and not even asking for a Wind Waker preorder...

March 03:
Sales info?
Linkie

April 03:
Price cut speculation:
Linkie

May 03:
Pre-E3 price cut speculation:
Linkie

E3 2003!
Linkie
Basically, Sony gave you the option of having a mere $20 price cut, or a free Network Adaptor when you buy a PS2. Microsoft followed with a $20 cut of their own. Nintendo responded by letting you choose to get the $50 GameBoy Player free instead of a game.

Nintendo missed their fiscal-year (ending March 31) targets.
Linkie
They only earned 67 billion yen...

August 03:
A quarterly report?
Linkie
Nintendo earned 11.5 billion yen, but only shipped 80,000 GameCubes in that entire quarter. Stores had more stock than they wanted. Nintendo's warehouses were full. So Nintendo shut down their GameCube factories. Until November.

September 03:
After their ineffective GB Player offer, Nintendo falls back to their "plan A" from E3. $99 GameCube. No extras. Takes effect Sept 25.
Linkie

October 03:
$99 is having an effect.
Linkie

Nintendo's first ever loss. Three billion yen in the red (for the fiscal half-year ending in September). Because of a 40 billion yen drop in the value of their sizable American investments, thanks to the yen/dollar currency exchange, and lower than expected GameCube sales (before the price cut).
Linkie

Good first week of October.
Linkie


November 03:
Nintendo's still happy.
Linkie

Zelda bonus disk 2 almost here.
Linkie

GameCube back in production.
Linkie

Mario Kart bonus disk came packed with first-printings of the game. Hope you preordered (or didn't miss out, despite preordering).
Linkie

October numbers.
Linkie

December 03:
Nintendo's #1 during the week of Thanksgiving.
Linkie

More positive Nintendo numbers.
Linkie

January 04:
GameCube still going to meet target sales?
Linkie

Nintendo points out that great end-of-year sales helped them beat the XBox for "all of 2003".
Linkie
It appears that Nintendo nearly sold out of units halfway through the month, allowing Microsoft to nearly match them in December, and Sony to ever-widen their unstoppable lead.

More numbers?
Linkie

Assorted Nintendo-centric 2003 figures.
Linkie

Nintendo not going to meet target sales after all?
Linkie

March 04:
Mainstream media finally notices, because Nintendo addresses, the GameCube shortage issue. Hopefully it's already resolved by now.
Linkie

That is quite a showing by FFCC.  Amazing what a little advertising will do (and a name).  Impressive numbers all around for Cube and GBA.

(Funny that Halo is still #1 seller on xbox.)

"Funny that Halo is still #1 seller on xbox."

Not really. With no games coming out for Xbox in February, the people who buy Xbox's just tend to buy Halo with it as well. And with it now being $30, it's a pretty good deal.

I don't know how good baseball games sell, but next month it will probably be MVP Baseball leading the pack, since it's an EA game, and they tend to sell very well (and the game is supposed to be good).

What is a 'tie ratio'?  Is that the games sold divided by systems sold for the month (or overall)?

Yep. It's the average number of games sold per-system. Also known as the "attach rate". I'm pretty sure it's measured "overall", not "monthly".

It can tell you all sorts of things, like if a console only recently started outselling another one, it can highlight that, because people tend to buy games over a span of time, not all at once, so newer console owners usually have fewer games than the early-adopters.

Plus it can tell you a lot about profit. Like, lets assume that console makers get $5 per-game in royalties (I think it's more, but there are material costs to consider). And that the GameCube usually sells at a $10 loss (which it doesn't, but whatever). Then Nintendo needs an attach rate of "2" in order to break even. The rest is pure profit. But the XBox usually sells at a $50 loss (again, this is just made-up) on average. Then Microsoft would need to hit an attach rate of "10" just to stop losing money. Of course, this info would be much more useful if we knew some real profit/loss numbers to go with them (over the entire lifespan of the console), instead of just making them up.

Anyone have any numbers on 1080 Avalanche?  It had some pretty stiff competition from SSX3, but hopefully it still manged to sell fairly well.  Its an awsome game to play over warppipe.

Some new end-of-fiscal-year numbers from Nintendo out today.

Nothing about hardware or sales, just profits, but it seemed worth mentioning.

http://www.gamespot.com/news/2004/04/01/news_6092686.html

Apparently they ended the year (which was filled with doom-and-gloom "first loss in history" hysteria for the first half) with 33 billion yen (US$317 million) profit on the year.

Last year they earned 68 billion yen (US$654 million).

Of course, last year PGC said they earned "¥67.3 billion ($572 million)", which should tell you something about exchange rates, and how it is that they're hurting Nintendo, by impacting the "giant money pile" they've been building up since the NES days.

I'll probably add a link about it to that second post in the thread, after PGC makes their story on it, for better consistency.

From the MagicBox forums, which got them from the Gaming-Age forums (which I can't seem to sign up for):

March Sales

All Major Platforms
1 MVP BASEBALL 2004 $23,275,788 473,559
2 NINJA GAIDEN $17,972,270 362,441

7 NEED SPEED: UNDERGRND $6,245,344 132,546
8 SONIC HEROES $6,278,915 131,241
9 THE SUFFERING $6,417,921 129,795

12 NAMCO MUSEUM $2,029,129 114,387
13 RESIDENT EVIL: OUTBRK $5,644,087 113,333
14 NFL STREET $5,332,338 112,848

16 MAFIA $4,840,413 99,767
17 MARIO BROS 3: MARIO 4 $2,668,832 90,418
18 METROID ZERO MISSION $2,535,471 86,543
19 SPONGEBOB: BATTLE $2,829,770 84,514
20 HALO $2,490,905 83,338
21 DRAKENGARD $3,230,136 82,160
22 SCOOBY-DOO: MYSTERY $2,702,511 77,015
23 DISNEY'S FINDING NEMO $2,004,585 76,632
24 NBA LIVE 2004 $3,637,521 74,632
25 TIGER WOODS PGA 2004 $3,358,717 72,762

...and some hardware numbers of:

GBA $46,872,322 496,614
PS2 $53,860,294 294,437
XBX $32,337,661 198,445
GC $16,094,477 163,028

I'm sort of surprised that MGS:TTS didn't do better than that.

And seeing as how the Xbox has their own price cut in effect now, any post-Christmas advantage the GameCube had over the Xbox in America becasue of the pre-Christmas price drop has been completely negated by that stupid hardware shortage, if any post-Christmas advantage ever existed at all.

Edit: I should read what I write about staying on-topic...

The Yen is strong and throbbing


And the Dollar is (or at least was) getting weaker- this leads to drops in profit forcasts despite sales forcasts remaining the same. People often incorrectly assume the two go up and down together regardless of any other factors.

I think that was directed at ruby, as he seemed to infer that the dollar was stronger in the past, so the numbers may seem lower than in other years.  However, you are right in what you say mr. baker.

Actually, I'm pretty sure it was an April Fools Day joke.

Partly my fault, because I made this thread into a joke on April 1 myself. And Nintendorks' joke did match this thread's theme quite nicely.

Or at least, I hope it was a joke. It was pretty creepy...

OUCH.

Twin Snakes = bomb. Wario Ware = massive bomb. Xbox pricedrop = huge success.

Where's the momentum now Reggie? HUH?

metal gear is so awesome too.  too bad it did so poorly. thats pretty rediculous. its reasons like that, that cause developers to not even release games on the cube.
halo = most over rated game of all time

I think its time to spice up the GC with 2 free games.  RE1, Prime and/or Zelda.

Game sales are not good for the Gamecube right now. Heck, even the Gameboy sales aren't that great with the top game with a 3 year old budget title containing 20 year old games leading the way (although its hardware sales are superb). Only one game for a Nintendo machine had sales of more than $2 million in April while Sony and Microsoft have several. All I can say is thank goodness Nintendo had a great E3 because I think it gave them a shot in the arm they desparately need.
