4days of Forza (its the 4th forza for the xbox one?) + Shadow of the Tomb Raider marketing did nothing for the Xbox this month.

You mean 1 day of forza?  Only a small fraction of players buy the ultimate edition. Still, Forza has never been that big of a seller in the US, so I dont know why you’re expecting it to be. 



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.

Impressive sales for PS4, Spiderman moved ton of consoles.
Switch is solid, XB1 is OK.

Anybody know what were last years October numbers?

It's Xbox main territory still. Half of it's sales from recent games are situated in NA.

Thanks for doing the NPD thread Ryng. Would you please consider including an archive in the OP?

In the past, it was always easy and quick to find all numbers thanks to Boutros' archive that was included in OP of every single NPD thread.

I'll add them later

Nice. Thanks

That's ignoring the fact that the racing genre has shrunk over the course over the last decade, and now is a pretty niche genre, especially in NA. Forza does much better in Europe than it does here.

NA is more like ~60% of the Xbox's Sales.

Doesn't mean it's not important to them. You're making it sound like they should completly skip NA just because of not being able to reach a peak they long reached during the X360 era.

ps4 domination, and switch losing momentum, xbox is just bad.

Sony did say that they expect Spiderman to be one of the games to help them reach 100 million.
Also, this is probably one of the worst underestimations I have seen for a single 30 day time period.
That Chartz found a way to overtrack Xbox in the same time period is fascinating.
