EEDAR January NPD predictions: Wii at 740k

By Patrick Garratt, Monday, 9 February 2009 19:30 GMT


EEDAR’s put out its NPD predictions, reckoning Wii sold a staggering 740,000 units at US retail last month.

The figure’s in stark contrast to Michael Pachter’s estimate, also released today. The Wedbush Morgan analyst said he thought 550,000 Wiis were sold in January.

EEDAR’s plumped for 210,000 and 300,000 units of PS3 and 360 respectively, also a way off Pachter’s guess at 225,000 and 275,000.

Pachter reckoned January console sales would be up 35 percent: EEDAR’s gone for 58 percent.

We’ll know who’s right on Thursday.
