I'd be really happy if Bayonetta broke the top ten. It needs some sales.

Keep publishing Platinum Games games, publishers!



I think we are undertracking some DS games but let's wait for NPD first



                       Thanks Blacksaber for the sig                  Tag:"Nintendo es toda la diversión de esta generación"

Cool.



Bet between Slimbeast and Arius Dion about Wii sales 2009:


If the Wii sells less than 20 million in 2009 (as defined by VGC sales between week ending 3d Jan 2009 to week ending 4th Jan 2010) Slimebeast wins and get to control Arius Dion's sig for 1 month.

If the Wii sells more than 20 million in 2009 (as defined above) Arius Dion wins and gets to control Slimebeast's sig for 1 month.

This reminds me of the Dec 09 NPD thread.

Ah... good times.

My predections for Jan 2010:

- PS3 beats Xbox
- Wii overtracked.
- Xbox on spot.
- PS3 undetracked.
