Whats the Date range for March NPD

Forums - Sales Discussion - Whats the Date range for March NPD

Yea so basically I was just curious what the range or data for the March NPD will include. I heard it was going to be 5 weeks. So will it go into April then? Also when can we expect the data to be released.

Something like March 4th-31st, the normal 4 week range.



For a while I thought it was a 4 week period from March 4 to March 31 (inclusive). That puts April through April 28, May through May 26, June through the 23rd, July through the 21st, August through August 18th, September through Sept 15, Octber through Oct 13, Nov through Nov 10, Dec through Dec 8... Obviously some months need an extra week then. I think March will be through April 7. That would put April through May 5. May would then be until June 2. June would be until June 30... at which point July becomes a 5 week month so that Sept is normal..then October is a 5 week month..so December is normal. I think that is how it will work. It is just that this year had the 'leap week' because the 5-4-4 week month schedule adds upto 13 weeks per quarter..52 weeks per year...1 day short of a 365 day year, and this was the 7th year (requiring the extra week lost from the previous 364-day years). Regardless, if March ended the 31st for NPD, the data will be out April 12. If it ends the 7th of April, it will be out April 19.

NPD for March is 4th through 31st like DKII stated. It'll be a very interesting April, as it'll count a great period for GHII for 360, and 2 weeks or so for SPM. March will be very interesting, as it covers a large # of days for Crackdown, Def Jam Icon, GRAW 2 and the winner, God of War 2.

Are you forsure its only to the 31st? I saw some people saying it was a 5 week period (so I guess the first week of april in addition) I was looking for someone that would know forsure to confirm/deny it.



If anyone wanted to know I found out the NPD data is from march 4- April 6 or 7 from Neogaf



There's no reason for it to include a full week of April (1-7) instead of putting that in the April numbers. The people here are the ones that actually have direct access to the data, I think they know what they're talking about. ;>

Uhh..... The person that gave out the info on neogaf actually gets the report so im gonna trust him......... Anyways it includes the first week of april due to the extra week from January that it included due to the 7 year cycle or whatever that needs an extra week added in. Besides I know for a fact that nobody whos responded to this thread actually gets the report so we should all stick with neogaf on this one.
