My article on NPD January expectations is still on the front page for anyone interested.

Around the Network

I think Wii hardware will be spot on, 360 too high, PS3 will be good, DS is too high. Nothing looks undertracked.

Software- Could be undertracked, but we will see...



I expect we´ll keep seeing the usual.

Wii 1st
XB360 2nd
PS3 3rd



News from Matt, early info:

"For the month, Wii was the winner. Barely. Guess who was number two? I'll give you a hint: It wasn't Microsoft. Indeed, 360 was technically the worst seller of the month, although the race is close.

Matt"

If Wii was barely the winner over PS3 then VGC numbers might be pretty far off this month.



Source, do you think we got the CoD 4 numbers right this month? We're wrong for Nov. and Dec.



Around the Network

It could just be outselling DS instead of PS3. We should know for sure in about 30 minutes.

 So 2nd is PS3 or PSP or DS ( depend if he consider all hardware or only home-console ).

 As we saw in December, NPD isn't always accurate
