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.

 No i'm not saying we can't trust NPD, I'm saying we need to remember that they also extrapolate for 40% of the market, so just becaus they say something, doesn't mean they are right
