What important releases did we have this month?

Not many this month.

 

August has Xbox One S, No Man's Sky, Metroid Prime: Federation Force, Style Savvy, Madden NFL 17, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Assetto Corsa, and World of Warcraft: Legion. So we'll have a lot more action then.

I forgot this was NPD week. I seem to have lost a lot of interest in hardware numbers with this site being so poor at keeping up to date. Or maybe the fact PS4 is winning so easily and there's no competition for 2nd and 3rd place that it's all rather boring.

Hey, glad to see you are already hare aqua.



Boutros, put "3DS #1 handheld" in the thread title.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Hey. 3DS could win this month or finish second.

Cool Aqua is here, NPD can begin!

Lol that's not how I remember it. You were mocking people for suggesting it.

Huum no, you rememb wrong then.

One time i asked "do people still think XBO will win", and that's just a question, never "mocked" people who predicted a XBO win. If you rememb a comment like it, then i would like a link, maybe i really did and i forgot that comment...

Don't worry Ryng, it's all in jest. I think you might of questioned people saying the Xbox was going to win using Amazon charts when the 3DS was beating the Xbox in Amazon charts. Nothing serious just having a bit of fun.

Well that's for right haha. Anyway, if XBO wins no matter what, i'll eat some crow.



CosmicQueso on NeoGAF:

"3DS>Xone>PS4>OUYA"

 

Translation:

In Hardware unit sales for July, 3DS sold more than Xbox One sold more than PlayStation 4 sold more than OUYA.

So a pretty slow month all around... I can already see all the companies PR statements:

Sony: "PS4 managed to be #1 this month again. PSN numbers are great, software did great. We never released the Vita."

Nintendo: "The Nintendo 3DS family of systems had a great month thanks to the release of MH Generations, and with the influence of PoGo on smartphones Pokemon titles saw an xx% boost compared to last month. Random achievement by Splatoon/MarioMaker. What's a Wii U?"

Microsoft: "The XBO had the most engaging month in history (for the 80th month running), with the most hours played monthly. Xbox live numbers. Some weird milestone."



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.
