MGS4 gives a nice little bump, but nothing spectacular, the 360 goes up in proportion to last year's may-june increase, PSP maintains numbers, DS as well, WiiFit maintains Wii's sales for another month.

MGS4 for sure will give a bump, but won't beat Wii, not even close imo

I wonder if there's an exact correlation between hardware sales and support calls.
Let's test that theory.

Some advice for PS3 predictions this month. I'm not just expecting a decent bump from MGS4's release. I'm also expecting a pretty decent bump from backwards compatibility hardware finally getting back on the market.

Just something to keep in mind. ;)

360 is going to get slaughtered... *fact* :lol


but by the time NPDs are release there would of been a price drop... and that will be the focus of MS's release statement.
