So that means we overtracked a bunch of things...namely fable 3?


Fable 3 is super overtracked.


So reality might be 2/3 of the total we see or 1/2?

The industry as a whole saw $1.07 billion in new hardware, software and accessory sales for the month, down from $1.11 billion in October 2009. For the year as a whole, the industry has generated $11.07 billion in new sales, roughly $900 million, or eight percent, behind the pace set by 2009.

Hardware

A severe 26 percent drop in year-over-year revenue from new hardware sales drove the overall decline in the October report. Sales of home and portable consoles brought in just $280 million in October2010, compared to $381 million for the same month last year.

NPD confirmed that this number makes the Xbox 360 the best-selling home system so far in 2010, while the Nintendo DS remains the best-selling system for the year overall.

Software

Sales of new, boxed software were up six percent year-over-year in October, representing $605 million in revenue in 2010. The increase wasn't enough to help 2010 software sales on an annual basis, however, which currently sit at $5.54 billion and still trail those at the same point in 2009 by seven percent.

Sales of online-enabled games seem to be driving the industry for the month. "Interestingly, unit sales of online playable console games were up 16 percent while sales of those that are not online playable were down 2 percent versus last October," NPD analyst Anita Frazier noted.

Well for somereason I thought it was 1 million, and I think based on the above information it should be between 500k -666K (679K max).

I guess it is between 66% and 75% of 900k (the total we actually have?)

We have 815k for Fable III, so for arguments sakes say it did 5k less than Fallout (we'll never know) that's 135k overtracked. Could be more, but I doubt we have it at 815k and it did 400k .....
