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.

i dont think he means the ps3..i think he means the psp


 Well it still says the 360 was the worst seller, meaning PS3 is either undertracked or 360 is overtracked.

I'm predicting a meltdown in about 15 minutes.



"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."  --Hermann Goering, leading Nazi party member, at the Nuremberg War Crime Trials 

 

Conservatives:  Pushing for a small enough government to be a guest in your living room, or even better - your uterus.

 

I think PS2 is actually more likely to be 2nd place than PS3 if Matt is talking about consoles.  PS2 outsold PS3 in November and December (especially in December).

Hmm... if PS3 is in second, I WILL crap myself. Maybe my bet may come true?

@ Avinash_Tyagi

So we shouldn't trust NPD, we should trust the companies who only report sold to retailers? I mean, how many XBOX arcades, or PS3 40 gigs are sitting on shelves now? You can't accurately reflect sales based on the companies sold to retailers, NPD is the best source we have for american numbers.
