Gamasutra: NPD has delayed its September 2009 U.S. console retail charts from its regular Thursday release to Monday, October 19th, citing "last minute processing requirements" for the change.
I wonder what darkpower is going to do....
Probably MS payed to get delayed so they can pay to boost their numbers. Mark my words, people will praise PS3 numbers but 360 will be strangely close.
Or panic from Sony thinking they had the edge and cheated something some how. lol Well that was a fun childish back and forth.
or maybe they are just overwhelmed with PS3's numbers and want to recount to make sure its correct
Or they were overwhelmed by the Wii's numbers or the 360 unexpected boost.
Sony must have paid them to delay it so they could think of some way how to spin their pathetic sales numbers.
they are really going after every mom/pop game store for their numbers as well. Finally giving a full view of all stores who sell game related stuff for the month of september. Not just the big name ones. If true...who do you think would want to go so deep to find out the totals: MS, Sony or Nintendo?
delayed becuz of the shear amount of Ps3's sold? jk lol they probably want to get Uncharted 2 #'s in
No they're waiting for the highest bidder. MSFT is saying they will give a check to inflate the 360 numbers and Sony is saying they will give NPD a percentage of their electronic sales if NPD goes ahead and reports the shipped numbers as sales.
Hanging chads. Had to be. -CadDad
they have old people in florida doing the counting and some have their hanging chads which could go for either side. @caddad: you beat me to it..lol
Great minds think alike. Does that mean 'mediocre' and 'bad' minds also think alike? /ponder -CadDad
Nice to invoke my name into something that I didn't participate in when you posted it, Jolly. Are you next going to say something about me in a topic I didn't even bring up on any forum, huh? Oh wait, I forgot, you guy also invoke other names into conversations they never participate in, so why the f*ck not? By the way, just play more Uncharted 2. Not so concerned about it to attack other members by name just because they decided to talk about it on a forum.
"NPD Delayed To Monday" Next story: "MS Drops Xbox 360 Price to $99 w/Halo ODST Bundle For Weekend" Monday: "Xbox 360 Dominates NPD sales, PS3 Still Doomed"
Since Sony reports numbers sold to Customers why don't they just tell us?!?
Oh man, it really shows the bias on this site when two trolls make equally absurd claims about MS and Sony rigging the numbers, and one poster gets an overwhelming majority agrees, and the other gets overwhelming disagrees.
He was probably playing Uncharted 2. What are you doing? Making trouble with what, three bubbles? Grow up.
My hypothesis is...by postponing the numbers MS tries to get as many pre-orders as possible over weekend for FM3 so that it doesn't harm the sales of FM3. See if there will be any special offer for pre-ordering FM3 over this weekend. Another way is more like a negative promotion, which is...by postponing the numbers, MS tries to stop boosting up the sales of U2 over this weekend. I know these hypotheses are crazy but again, this gen game industry is crazy, too.
NOOOOO NPD is delayed, everyone go kill yourselves, we can't live on!!!
Awwww. I was really looking forward to the pointless sales arguments today.
Wrong spot. Damn N4G.
No fanboy revolt/uprising for a few more days, LOL. Who in the hell am I kidding. Every article is a chance for them to let loose.
:( I always look forward to NPD day
A sign of competitive sales with atlesst a couple of platforms?
It was scared of MW2, so it got delayed until a less congested day. *Note: there have been several previews of MW2 released today. EDIT: I guess no one has a sense of humor today.
I bet MS had something to do with this. they cant let sony be on top in NPD. Relly though, whatever they did im sure they cant really change the numbers.....can they????????????????
Then they can. Who am I to tell you different. There will be people on here who will beat it in your head that they did change the numbers trying to push your common sense to the furthest reaches of your brain until you see things the way they want you to. Its an everyday struggle to stay sane, LOL.
PS3 must have sold so much that they must have trouble counting it all.
This will definitely be interesting! All three consoles have had price cuts in that month, so we'll really get to see whats the stronger brand, and we'll have a good glimpse on whats to come in the future.
Probably the NPD delayed it, just to give Greenberg and Co. better time to make a decent spin or better damage control BS.
Oh well, I'll just wait for another Forza 3 vs GT5 thread to pop up then I can sit back and watch the mud slinging. :)
SOny payed them cause they are desperate seeing that SLIM sales are like before slim release, lol! I told you guys.. the slim effect will take as long as the price cut from 600 to 400 USD. Nobody wants this 3rd place patchstation.
See you on Monday!! :P
How does anyone know if the NPD Sales are Accurate anyway??? You never know Micro$oft could easily bend the Numbers anyway!!! ;-D
It's either cause the Wii or PS3 sales went so high it's a lot of counting. OR!!, NPD doesn't work on Columbus Day weekend to keep the tallies in order.
while Ps3 gamers enjoy games like Uncharted 2.
Calculating the 54.2 number make sure they got the right one. Or figure out is it the shiping number or sales. I don't care busy with uncharted 2 wich is highly possibly goty.
Damn! I've been impatiently waiting for Septembers NPD, and now there's another freakin' delay. It's been a while on N4G since I've seen an article get over 300 or 400 comments (hardly anything gets many comments on here anymore... probably because there's no more PS3 is doomed articles), but whenever September's NPD comes out, it's probably going to be a trainwreck. Nintendo DS> Wii> PS3> Xbox 360> PSP> PS2 is how I think sales will play out, and the Top selling game of the month will obviously be ODST.
did you do the better thing and by Uncharted 2 and start playing it's rich game play along with demon's souls? sorry Numbers are for the fanboys. i'll go play uncharted 2 instead.
Ps3 will be 1st this Month but aftrer that it will fall o 3rd.-------------------------- ---
You love saying that while you suck your finger in a dark corner of your moms bedroom right?
pathetic fellas, they made refresh the page over 40 times, waiting to see the numbers, and now there is nothing... what a waste of bandwidth
You must really be into console sales...
Damn they still counting those ps3's
hard to count them when they flying off the shevles :)
I wanna Sliiiim....;~; But I have no monies.
Oops double post.
not that it matters.ps3 fans know that worldwide,ps3 is selling VERY WELL.... but it's funny...when sony is to have a great selling month,that's when NPD postpones its numbers.
I thought I was going to get to play the new release of "Pointless Sales Numbers: The Fanboys Vengeance" today. Dammit, I pre-ordered it and everything. F*cking delays.
Bubbs up for ya!!!*lol* Sometimes a good joke is worth all of the great comments in the world!!!
Bubbs to you as well.
Best comment of the week!!!!
if im correct only count about 65% of systems sold anyway not like i care i have Uncharted to play
Oh damn. I was expecting to come back to this site after Uncharted 2 for many hilarious comments.
I look for comments about which of the two companies will win the war while the third company cleans house. It gives me something to do while my gf plays Geometry Wars or LBP.
