Let me know you feedback, would you like those threads to be a thing?

yes 46 93.88%
no 3 6.12%

NOTE: Recently, VGChartz had not an official NPD thread series for a while. when results were out, many user made threads that right now are pretty hard to find. That's not good. Before that, we used to have a series of thread for the NPD threads, from Boutros, who hasn't done a NPD thread since December of last year.

Since his threads were very usefull, i'll try to do something like that, with... some "changes". Anyway, that's just an experiment for this month. If this goes well, i'll keep doing that. If not, we'll see. Now, for the thread:

Around the Network

Results will come out in a matter of days.
Meanwhile, you can make predictions or discuss if you want.


My predictions:

[PS4] 367K
[NSW] 309K
[XB1] 208K
[3DS] 101K

My predictions
PS4- 350k
NSW- 220k
XBO- 190k

PS4 > NSW > XB1

Software top 3:
1) Spiderman
2) NBA 2K19
3) Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

PS4: 385k
NSW: 325k
XB1: 255k

Around the Network

PS4 - 400K
Switch - 300K
XBO - 200K

Tagging. avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

Tagging. Hopefully we get some HW numbers soon.


In accordance to the VGC forum rules, §8.5, I hereby exercise my right to demand to be left alone regarding the subject of the effects of the pandemic on video game sales (i.e., "COVID bump").

I don't guess exact numbers but the PS4 will win that month by 75K-100K over it's fiercest competitor, the Switch.

Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

PS4 325K
NSW 300k
Xbone 200k

Software #1
