Wii U sales estimates are really bad...

The NPD Group has released its sales data for January, in which we can see an overall YOY sales spike... but due to an extended month.

The NPD Group sales data for January 2013 is out, and overall, the retail industry rose 9% year over year. However, this was due the fact that it's a “leap month” for the NPD, which occasionally inserts five-week recording periods to keep its tracking in line with the calendar. So, the NPD Group estimates sales were actually down about 19%.

ADJUSTED JANUARY US GAME SALES (December 30, 2012-February 2, 2013)
OVERALL DOLLAR SALES


- Total retail sales: $667.76 million (-13%)
- Non-PC hardware: $164 million (-17%)
- Accessories: $205.28 million (4%)
- Total software: $314.32 million (-19%)

- Software.

Here are the TOP 10 games for JANUARY 2013:

* From video game industry veteran Kevin Dent:



- Hardware.

At the time of this writing, only Microsoft released numbers for the XBOX 360, but there are some estimates for the Wii U and PS Vita (and yes, those are quite bad):

Xbox 360: 281K (+4.07%)

Wii U: ~55K

PS Vita: ~35K





Also, here's some interesting data from NeoGaf users, which compares Wii U's first January with the Wii and GCN ones:

Nintendo home console sales comparisons, January NPD:

GameCube raw numbers, NPD:

NPD Jan 2002: 61,685
NPD Jan 2003: 79,813
NPD Jan 2004: 131,000
NPD, Jan 2005: 112,327
NPD Jan 2006: 66,000

Wii raw numbers, NPD:

NPD Jan 2007 (5 weeks reporting): 436,000
NPD Jan 2008: 274,000
NPD Jan 2009: 679,200
NPD Jan 2010: 465,800
NPD Jan 2011: 319,000
NPD Jan 2012: ~148,000

Wii U raw numbers, NPD:

NPD Jan 2013 (5 weeks reporting): 45,900 to 59,500

A Nintendo console has NEVER had numbers in January so low since Iwata has become president. The 45-59K figure is unprecedented. UNPRECEDENTED.

Well, there you have it. Finally, take a look at the only PR released (from Microsoft) below!

Xbox 360 started the New Year as the number one console in the U.S., selling 281,000 units in January, marking it the 25th consecutive month as the number-one selling console in the U.S. Xbox 360 continues to attract consumers in the new year with more than $338 million spent on Xbox 360 retail including games, consoles and accessories in January. (Source: NPD Group, January 2013)

January 2013 NPD highlights:

· Holding 44 percent share of current-generation console sales, Xbox 360 sold 281,000 units in January, maintaining the number-one console spot in the U.S. (Source: NPD Group, January 2013)

· Total retail spend on the Xbox 360 platform in January (hardware, software and accessories) reached $338 million, the most for any console in the U.S. (Source: NPD Group, January 2013)

· During the month of January, Xbox 360 held five of the top 10 console game titles including: “Far Cry 3,” “NBA 2K13” “Call of Duty: Black Ops II” “Madden NFL13” and “Halo 4.” (Source: NPD Group, January 2013)

This year, Xbox 360 will continue to expand its interactive entertainment portfolio with experiences including Redbox Instant, MTV and PBS, solidifying its position as the best all-in-one entertainment package.

Xbox showed incredible growth throughout 2012, almost tripling its entertainment offerings with nearly 100 custom, voice-controlled Xbox LIVE apps, and delivering users with 18 billion hours of entertainment. Xbox has sold three times the number of original Xbox consoles, with 76 million units sold around the world to-date.
