Forums - Sales Discussion - The Official October NPD Thread (Data at 6:30 PM EST ~3.5 hours)

I think NDP is accountting for the "Financial Crisis" in their extrapolation... Likely the reason SW is so low. I think they are wrong... I have friends in retail and many things are moving slowly BUT Videogames and HDTV sales are better than ever.

End of 2009 Predictions (Set, January 1st 2009)

Wii- 72 million   3rd Year Peak, better slate of releases

360- 37 million   Should trend down slightly after 3rd year peak

PS3- 29 million  Sales should pick up next year, 3rd year peak and price cut

Around the Network

"In October, the Xbox 360 versions of Saints Row 2 sold through approximately 270,000 units, and the PS3 versions sold through approximately 95,000 units, according to the NPD Group,"


According to The NPD Group, Fallout 3 was the third and fourteenth best selling title overall for the month of October. This made the game the third best selling PS3 SKU and second best selling Xbox 360 title. It was also the best selling PC title overall during the same period. Fallout 3 sold a total of 610,000 copies during October, and 375,000 of those copies were on the Xbox 360.


The November NPD console sales figures will be interesting and a huge boost upon October NPD sales figures
