NPD: Behind the Numbers, October 2009

In Gamasutra's detailed NPD U.S. console/game sales analysis for October 2009, we examine Sony's post-PS3 price drop results and PSP Go launch, Nintendo's Wii price cut timing, and a possibly grim outlook for the rest of 2009

People shouldn't take things so seriously on this site. Unless you are an employee or share holder, let this sh!t go, and if you are one, you are an asshole for stirring the pot. Don't waste your time arguing back and forth with each other. I like when people write funny comments, but what I mostly see is petty BS coming from all sides.
