PSP has a ~4.2 attach rate in markets like the USA and tends to sell ~250k in a normal month.

Which puts 1.05m PSP sw in a normal month. Its pretty hard for a single PSP game to take up the 10-20%+ of that total needed to crack the top ten.

I think we're a little higher than NPD across the board but don't expect any major suprises this month

OH I had forgotten it's NPD day haha. Um well given December's numbers I got no idea what to expect so I'll just wait to be surprised.

 

Same here.

January NPD is always sort of meh, after november and december the poor thing can't just compare.

Humble numbers, that's what we'll see today.
