Forums - Sales Discussion - The Official July NPD Thread (data for 4 weeks ending 8/2 comes @ 6:30 est)

Data will be out in about five hours.

I wrote this as a preview...

Fairly quiet month for top selling software compared to March-June (March had Smash, April GTA & Mario Kart, May had Wii Fit, June had MGS4). February should be a good comparable with SC4 doing similarly to DMC4 and software likely to be in the ~150k to ~350k range.

Notable Milestones:

NPD USA lifetime totals should put PS3 past 5m this month.

NPD USA Year to date totals for Wii should top 4m this month.

I hope so. Every month, I love this thread. Its always full of screams and moans and bans.

I suspect we'll find that NPD has a smaller gap between the Xbox 360 and the PS3 than VGC claims. I know the PS3 had shortages and the Xbox 360 had a clearance sale, but the gap just seems too good to be true without any Xbox 360 exclusive releases of note and whilst still in MGS4's wake.

Oh and this time would it be possible to put the numbers in the first post when they release?

Edit.... here they are until The SOurce can update the OP.

I'm stunned @ 360.... the rest seems ok.



I predict a lot of crying and gnashing of teeth.

Seconded.  I'm off to bed in a moment and whenever I get up I have to search 5 or 6 pages looking for the numbers.
