October 2013 NPD: rough hardware estimates
NPD never hands out hardware data these days, meaning we usually have to rely on leaks and estimates in order to find out how well systems perform each month. Thankfully, NeoGAF user “creamsugar” has come through with a decent overview of October’s sales in the US.
Here’s a general estimate provided by creamsugar’s leak:
PSV < 30k < Wii < 40k < 50k < Wii U < 60k < 100k < PS3 < 120k This figure suggests that the Wii U managed to outsell the Wii, which the console has had a tough time doing most of the year. Wii U apparently sold between 50,000 and 60,000 units while the Wii moved between 30,000 and 40,000 consoles. Source
