The Official October 2010 NPD Thread (Data in 2.5 hours covers Oct 4-30)

Forums - Sales Discussion - The Official October 2010 NPD Thread (Data in 2.5 hours covers Oct 4-30)

NPD data for the week ending October 30 will be out in about 2 hours. Should be a lousy month for hardware, not that NPD will be giving that information, and a solid month for software...which means overall a down month from Oct 2009.

Edit:

Thread now unlocked, as NPD October is coming today.

Good month for sw, bad month for hw.

Odds are we'll still be seeing leaks and hopefully the NPD analysis should at least reveal month on month trends. Keeping my fingers crossed.



Proudest Platinums:
1. Gran Turismo 5
2. Persona 4 Arena
3. Wipeout HD
4. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
5. Super Street Fighter 4

Greenberg  will surely twitter the # of 360's sold and if it was first place he will say that too, for a start.

 

Hopefully we'll get the other consoles over the next day or so too again.



NPD numbers are released today?

If you can call a top ten list of platform combined software titles numbers.



Anyone can guess. It takes no effort to throw out lots of predictions and have some of them be correct. You are not and wiser or better for having your guesses be right. Even a blind man can hit the bullseye.

I thought it was delayed until next week.



BTW, why don't you link your preview in the OP?

Here's the NeoGAF thread.

FWIW, the NPD Group just sent out planned dates for the next three releases:
October 2010 sales release: Nov. 16, 2010 (as expected in this thread)
November 2010 sales release: Dec. 9, 2010
December 2010/year-end sales release: Jan. 13, 2011

Those are official ... until they're changed, of course!
