NPD clarifies recent sales reports

ConsolesThis is a correction on a news bit we reported two days ago about NPD. In the said report, it was stated that NPD had tallied up the sales of the 360, Wii and PS3 for the months of November to December.

It was further detailed that the Xbox 360 sold 2 million units, the Wii 1.8 million, and the PS3 750,000 units in the said time span.  It turns out that the news was falsely attributed to the NPD group, as their David Riley told GameDaily BIZ.

Recent media reports erroneously cited The NPD Group as having provided to CNBC December ’06 retail sales for the video game industry. Although the specific CNBC segment included NPD’s November ’06 console hardware install base sales figures, there were no sales figures or forecasts from NPD for December 2006. NPD’s December/Year-End sales data will become available Jan 11.

As they said, the official reports will be released in a week, so just take this in stride.
