Nintendo and Sony hop on the NPD merry-go-round

Following yesterday's explosive release of the March NPD video game sales results, both Sony and Nintendo have predictably constructed and delivered finely worded press statements celebrating their astoundingly magnificent results. There's plenty of fun to be had on the merry-go-round, but spinning too much may lead to uncontrollable nausea and projectile vomiting. In the interest of shielding you from an unexpected Technicolor yawn, we've decided to slow things down a bit.

"uh-oh, looks like you'll need to switch to the wii to support your favorite foreign economy from now on."

For a lot of us, MS is a foreign economy too. Go drink a pint of warm Americone Dream.

Don't forget the Update BILL:

Microsoft's tactic is to completely ignore its "toughest competition." Indeed, "The latest numbers have been released by NPD, and we're HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE that XBOX 360 CONTINUES TO LEAD SONY'S PS3 IN NEXT-GENERATION GAMING CONSOLE SALES with 199K units sold in the month of March."

The Microsoft press release describes AN ATTACH RATE OF 5.7 GAMES SOLD PER CONSOLE (with four games making it into the NPD software top ten), as well as Guitar Hero II shifting over 291,000 units within five days.

"Games like Guitar Hero II that were ONCE WERE PLAYSTATION EXCLUSIVES are now enabling consumers to HAVE MORE OF A CHOICE when it comes to platform selection, while also broadening our portfolio of games that appeal to customers of all ages." GIVING CONSUMERS A CHOICE IS ALWAYS A PLUS, though you'd better hope they don't choose your primary competitor. Which totally isn't the Wii, by the way.

Have a great weekend gamers..

Why should microsoft be celebrating selling more consoles than Sony?
Honesly I don't understand what Sony is celebrating? they have the lowest selling next gen console. Ohh yeah... I almost forgot.. they want to sound like they are breaking records in the US.

5.7 games sold per console. Then you look at all the AAA titles being released this year. WOW....Never forget being a "Gamer" is about playing "Games". I can honestly say that folks who buy the 360....obvioulsy play a lot of games. "5.7 games per console folks".
