So a very interesting thread on NeoGaf got necrobumped that was 8-10 years old and I find the information super neat and I think some of you will find it relevant too. I know most hate neogaf, but this is good info. Someone compiled NPD results for JRPGs from this era. Some are missing a few minor months worth and some were still selling, so it is not 100% accurate, but it gives a pretty good ballpark. I knew some of the WD sales number like SSSC, but some of the others I had no clue about. Thread is here.
Comments:
Final - it's done selling and these are the Life-time total
Missing some minor mos. - usually missing Feb/Mar '02 and/or some mos. in 2003 but not a big deal since little was selling by then.
LTD - still selling - life-to-date and still selling this year; not final.
Accuracy:
Projected - means the nos. have since bin revised since my data was compiled thus I revised them as close as I could to the newer data (but still may be off by a few hundred or a thousand. I used the same method for the 16-bit RPG sales).
Actual - means these are the exact NPD raw newer/revised sales and have no need for adjusting.
