I'm speechless


Clarify (please)

there is nothing to say here.

A bunch of combined games, no numbers,

I lol at you NPD.

Yeah it is pretty sucky .. don't know why they've taken this route (again)

Well if the information is being bought by individuals....they feel that they should limit a public release.

They've been perfectly fine over the last few years ...

I guess the economy was hurting them! :P

Also "If you are good at something, might as well charge a price for it"



 

"In terms of hardware sales, the best-selling console in October was, as it often is, the Nintendo DS. The Xbox 360 was the only console to realize a sales performance when compared to October of 2009. "

NPDs: NBA 2K11, Fallout: New Vegas Lead October Sales New game sales still down versus last year, though there were some bright spots.

By Frank Cifaldi, 11/16/2010 * * 0diggsdigg * 0 *

The NPD Group has released its videogame industry sales results for the month of October, 2010, with NBA 2K11 and Fallout: New Vegas coming out on top. NBA 2K11 came in first place in terms of combined SKUs or, in other words, it was the best-selling game when you combine sales of its Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, Wii and PC versions. For better or for worse, this is how the NPD reports its data now. In terms of individual SKUs, the best-selling game of the month was the Xbox 360 version of Fallout: New Vegas, which sold around 679,000 units in total. Rock Band 3, which also debuted in October, did not place on the top ten. According to NPD analyst Anita Frazier, the game came in fifteenth place, though it should be noted that the game premiered on October 26. "Based on solid reviews, [Rock Band 3] has the potential to perform well over the holidays," said Frazier.

The software top ten chart follows.

1. NBA 2K11

2. Fallout: New Vegas

3. Medal of Honor

4. Fable III

5. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

6. Halo: Reach

7. Just Dance 2

8. FIFA Soccer 11

9. Madden NFL 11

10. WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011

In terms of hardware sales, the best-selling console in October was, as it often is, the Nintendo DS. The Xbox 360 was the only console to realize a sales performance when compared to October of 2009.

Heh, I just noticed that Just Dance 2 charted, but Wii Party didn't.  Craziness!

Fable 3 is super overtracked.

I wonder if we should have a combined formats chart. NPD does it and it makes some sense in that it isn't important so much how well one SKU sells but how well the game as a whole sells over multiple different platforms. Given everything is multiplatform nowadays it seems to make sense.



Tease.

Not a bad consolation prize!
