I can appreciate the effort even thought not much can be drawn from the results.

 

Well you do see what people are talking about/interested in. 

Unfortunately finding the correlations to draw conclusions will take time. This will be much more interesting when we can compare one month two another. Comparing NPD results for a month against social media trends will be a lot of fun. In the beginning it's just data. 

The next NPD will be a great way to draw our first comparisons, the first monthly comparisons will also show us a lot. 

I'm excited to see what we can do with the data.

In the meantime I added the monthly pie chart!

Nice thread, I hope to see correlation to big game releases and holidays.



I like this idea .

If I may offer a suggestion, illustrated on the graph it would be nice to see the correlation between peaks and troughs and certain gaming news/events/announcements.



Might as well make it Nintendo - Nintendo Wii or Nintendo Wii U or Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo N3DS

Edit: You see guys, this is why you read all the posts in the OP before posting. Don't be like Slarvax



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

It really should be interesting.

Last year during the Game Awards, Zelda WiiU single handedly outdid PS4 entirely on twitter.

So big games do matter a great deal.



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

Trend Thursdays has been updated! Gamescom boost was pretty "meh". What do you guys think?

I'm experimenting adding what causes things to peak.

Let me know if you guys prefer this. A PS4 Mouse/Keyboard was announced.

Let me know what you think of the above. Unfortunately troughs are impossible to explain with accuracy.



Cool idea, especially with the holidays coming up. Will be interesting to see what happens when a new bundle is announced for example.

Thanks. I didn't think keyboard an mouse was such a big deal. It gave ps4 about an equal boost to gamescom/xb1....    O_o

 

I think context for the spikes would definitely be helpful. Personally i don't mind how you did it in the graph above, looks good (as long as it doesn't get too cluttered).
