It's pretty much a given that the PS4 won October thanks to MS's PR today.

It was a given as soon as Amazon posted it's October monthly top 100. PS4 at 8 and 23 on that list, with Amazon's predictive value meant a PS4 win for the month is certain. The onlly question is how big of a win. It won't the the 2:1 that the Amazon October chart implies, but I think it will be more than the 77K gap VGC has. I think the gap wil be more like 100K or more.

Already? How time flies.

Anyway, 'ello all the gaf members that will lurk this thread (honestly, as of late it seems as though you guys like to lurk here during the NPD report as much as we like to lurk your thread ).



Bets:

1. If the Wii U sells closer to 10 million LTD by 1/3/2015 I win. If it sells closer to 9.5 million LTD by 1/3/2015 OfficerRaichu15 wins (winner gets 2 weeks of avatar control)--Lost.

I'm thinking of something like this.

PS4= 350k
XB1 = 240k
WIU = 93k

Smash Bros for 3DS will be the best selling game only on one platform, also pointlessly hoping for Buyonetta 2 to show up in top 10.



Hey Boutros buddy, can you put the ETA for the international date line too?

Yep, it was like that for September, as well. Both of the PS4 SKUs were significantly ahead of the X1, but it didn't mean that it sold by more than 2 to 1 and September NPD showed that.

This is the boring one before the interesting one, right?

All NPD threads are interesting thanks to the banter in them.

PS4 and Xb one both adjusted DOWN!! Just now for the month: PS4 293K, Xb one 218K. Shrinks the gap to 75K. I thought the 77K gap was low to start with.
