Alright guys, this is going to be something we try to do on a monthly basis to see how close we can line up with the true NPD numbers released around this time each month. Last month was the first full month of the $100 price cut for both the PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360. So, I expect a huge spike in sales for both consoles, but for the PlayStation 3 to lead the way. I also think that the impending launch of the PSPgo could have resulted in low PSP sales, so I’ll be taking that into account as well.
We’d appreciate it if you’d include your predictions this month in the comment section below and we’ll see who can nail this thing down the closest.
1. PlayStation 3 – 475K (due to price drop)
2. Xbox 360 – 350K (due to price drop)
3. Nintendo Wii – 290K
4. PlayStation Portable – 120K
5. Nintendo DS – 400K
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that I am probably 20K or so off from each item, but I’ll give each console and handhelf the benefit of the doubt. I think the majority of NPD numbers will be an increase this year over last year’s numbers from the same time period.
So, what do you guys think?
