    No the report stated it being fastest selling out of the current generation consoles. PS2 and especially the Wii was far ahead at that point, and they had imo the less optimal November launch. PS2 was also quite supply limited at launch and for some time, but really took off well before the 21 month mark.

    Wasn't the article saying it's the fasted selling console? Was that just this gen?

    edit - The Wii was at 10.71m after 22 months (can't find data for 21 months) and 13.81m after 31 months

    Just in breakfast with kids otherwise I could link a proper tutorial. But. Using your google account. Go to google drive.

    Then click on new> import. Select your file and it should create a new google sheet with your excel info. Then click the share button and make it public with a link but not editable.

    You might lose some stuff during import. If it doesn’t work the way you want. Try the office 365 route.

    Numbers popping up little fast now haha. These numbers look very weird in some parts... what is the source for these? are you sure you are not counting the months from PS2s Japanese launch, which was half a year before NA launch?

    This Arstechina article has Wii at 10.85M after 20 months.
    https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2018...itchs-8-2-million-us-switch-sales-in-context/

    http://vgsales.wikia.com/wiki/NPD_Seventh_generation?file=Npd_total_sales_(aligned_launch).png
    This graph puts Wii over 20M units at month 31

    http://vgsales.wikia.com/wiki/NPD_Sixth_generation
    This puts PS2 at 17.2M at month 30.

    edited bits out due to corrected numbers by goonergaz :)

    On another note, from the link http://vgsales.wikia.com/wiki/NPD_Seventh_generation

    I put behind spoiler tab, a table of monthly sales of 360,PS3 and the Wii. Just look at those Wii numbers from the launch. Also the last two years there for the 360 are very strong. 2010 and 2011.

    Wii was an absolute monster its first few years on the market. I believe in 2011 it finally started to decline pretty hard, but up until then it was a beast.

    Does anyone know November 2016 Xbox One NPD figures? I was knocking up an X360 vs XBO chart but can't find them.

    Thanks, I have put together a chart for X360 vs Xbox One NPD as it looks like their paths are about to cross (it came up on resetera and I was curious);

    [​IMG]

    I have uploaded the data so people can check it (and correct/use it) here.

    These are US sales right? Interesting that the One has healthy sales in that territory and was actually doing better than the 360. I wonder how it is doing in Europe.

    Sorry, yes - NPD figures (updated my post).

    It's doing a worse everywhere else, I think anyway. Having dug around a bit by Jan 2011 MS announced 50m WW - that's around 50% of total sales in the US, with XBO just behind that figure with a swing to around 55% total sales in the US (not as bad as I expected).
