Probably. They were pretty off on the PS4 and it probably makes more sense to update after NPD releases than release new numbers before and  have to immediately adjust them again.



If Xbox One wins it probably won't be by as much as November, given the drop-off of the price-drop effect.

WAIT, is it true that AC: Unity was actually #5 in the software tracks last month instead of #9, like they showed at first? I got that from The Final Bosman show on Gametrailers lol. Apparently NPD said they made an error with it and that it was really #5, ahead of Pokemon.

Yeah that's true.

This won't be interesting. Well it will be of course because NPD is always interesting. But I don;t expect anything surprising. What is almost guaranteed and probably most interesting about this NPD is that there won't be 3 Jan 2015 VGC data to allow for a comparison until after NPD has come out and VGC has made any necessary adjustments.

To that end I suggest Boutros creates a "month to date" set of tables, so we can have a guess at whether VGC data for the weeks we actually do have are close to being accurate, once we get some NPD data drip fed to us.

Won bet with t3mporary_126 - I correctly predicted that the Wii U's LTD at the end of 2014 would be closer to 9 million than 10 million. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6673287
