First Week Sales Figures

October 20, 2003 - Independent research firm Arcadia Research reports that the N-Gage sold less than 5,000 units across the United States in its first week on the market.
Nokia representatives could not validate or dispute this dismal sales figure. If accurate, it would coincide with earlier reports (now confirmed) that the N-Gage sold approximately 500 units in the UK in its first week at retail.

Price may be a major factor in the N-Gage's reported poor sales numbers. At $299.99, the N-Gage is currently the most expensive game system among the crop of major game consoles (including PS2, GameCube, Xbox, and Game Boy Advance).

 N-Gage sells poorly at UK game stores. 
Low Sales In The UK

October 15, 2003 - The first UK N-Gage sales numbers suggest that Nokia's new handheld was off to a very rough start in its first week at retail. Out of 6,000 game stores polled in the UK, less than 500 N-Gage units were sold in its launch week. While the N-Gage's selling performance in game stores is quite bleak, the figure of approximately 500 units does not include mobile phone stores, where N-Gage owners would have to go to activate service for their new systems.
Compared to Nintendo's Game Boy Advance sales numbers in the same week, the N-Gage was outsold by approximately 30:1, even without any major GBA game releases. We wont know truly how well the N-Gage sold until (and if) Nokia releases its combined sales figures from game stores and mobile phone retailers, but judging by the current numbers, Nokia faces a major uphill battle.
 Nokia figures claim massive N-Gage sales 

Nokia has released its first set of sales figures for the N-Gage Game Deck since the device launched earlier this month, claiming that the device sold some 400,000 units worldwide during its first two weeks on sale - completely different picture to those published by independent market watcher Arcadia Research this week. Arcadia claimed that the N-Gage had sold only 5000 units through every US retailer that stocked the device in its first week on sale. In the UK, Chart-Track has measured less than 800 sales through videogame retailers in the first fortnight on sale.

So where does this discrepancy arise? Have the independent firms been failing to count significant bulk sales of the device? Or do sales outside the US and the UK made up these sales figures? Nokia's senior VP for entertainment and media, Ilkka Raiskinen, did state that sales were strong in Europe and Asia-Pacific, implying that US sales were weaker - but really, 5000 sales in the US against 395,000 elsewhere in the world?

More likely is that Nokia is measuring something entirely different from what the market research firms are measuring. Arcadia Research and Chart-Track measured the number of N-Gage Game Deck units actually sold to consumers by the retailers polled. Nokia, we suspect, is measuring shipments - the number of N-Gage units sold to retailers, but which may well still be gathering dust on shelves.

If so, then Nokia's figures aren't representation of the system's installed base whatsoever - serving only to provide confirmation of the 400,000 initial shipment figure for the N-Gage which has been bandied around for several weeks but never officially stated until now. You have to admire Nokia's spin, though - announcing a figure like that sounds very positive.

Nokia hopes to sell between 6 and 9 million N-Gage Game Deck units before the end of 2004. By contrast, Nintendo expects to sell around 20 million GameBoy Advances / GBA SP in its current financial year, which ends next April. The GBA has been outselling the N-Gage by a factor of 30:1 at UK videogame retailers over the past fortnight; while a direct comparison of the GBA launch to the N-Gage launch in the USA (using Arcadia Research figures) shows that it outsold the significantly more expensive N-Gage by over 100:1 in their respective first weeks on sale.
