oh...oh wow.

must have been a true disaster month for Wii U again
You know Amir0x, if you can't understand Marc's analysis last month about how the WiiU sales is going to get better and the WiiU will recover and gain momentum, with no evidence to support the prediction except for passion, then i can't help you.

What makes you think they're going to delay their holiday game?
Just the way it doesn't have a date, and how Sakurai and Nintendo have started mainly promoting the 3ds version for last month.
Have to assume its either going to be Dec or early 2015 at this stage, esp. if like the 3ds it is only 2 months of hype/promotion before launch.

Of course they've been promoting the 3DS version, it's coming out in less than 2 months. Smash Wii U will probably get the close to black friday launch spot. Probably Nov 23.

There goes our entertainment. Now what will we do to pass the time.

Maybe that's all the data we're getting this month? Disappointing if so!

Banned? :(... I kinda liked the guy, remind me of thekayle.

And in the long gone yesteryear
Don Mattrick's words made Redmond cheer
"Ten million first shall win this race!"
He said, with grin upon his face.

"The coming battle shall be won right here,
With games like Halo and Forza and Gears."
He ended his statement with a triumphant nod
Secure in his love from the gaming gods

His words stoked fires among the fans
Each camp clenched swords in bloodied hands
The system warz began again
Three noble fighters, each sure to win

Microsoft, of course, had their white box
Sleek, and powerful, and filled with lots
Of games to play with friends new and old
Or even watch Netflix (if you paid for Gold)

The box upon which SCE was betting
Had power, confusion, and printer settings
The games would look and run so swell
If developers could handle the goddamn Cell

And in the third corner of the ring
Stood the tiny offering from the former king
An innovative waggle-box called the Wii
Would eventually win, quite handily

But fear not brave warriors! War is not through!
Nintendo returned with the shiny WiiU!
It's a console! It's a tablet! It's both things combined!
It's the word "underwhelming," redefined

The other two fighters each had a son
The 360 gave birth to the Xbox One
Underpowered, TV-focused, and chained to Kinect
It struggles to gain traction, or even respect

PS3's new child has shot up the charts
Sleek and powerful, with a gaming heart
It seems quite destined to stay far ahead
Unless Sony acts like Sony and shits in the bed

But now that Gamescom '14 is here at long last
Words did echo from deep in the past
"The first to 10 million shall win at all cost!"
Hung from Microsoft's neck like a stone albatross

So now Tokyo laughs as Redmond sneers
And Lara Croft's eyes well up with tears
For bad news has arrived for the mighty Xbone
PS4 was the first to reach Don's milestone

I posted this once in another thread, but it seemed fitting here too, considering the PS4's continued success. I hope it doesn't make me seem like an attention whore. This is the only time I'll repost it.
I quoted it in the other thread, and now in this thread. Yeah it's that good.

Amazing work plop!

This Monty guy is posting like every other post in a few different threads. Am I the only one that isn't tracking what he's talking about?
Sounded like he didn't either...
or he was a really good troll.

Well, we had two "it's time to stop posting" pictures and two bans now.

Honestly, reading some of the comments on youtube for Journey's ps4 trailer earlier today... I wouldn't be surprised he was legit.

But you never know...

Yaaaaaw

I hate NPD theards during the first 15 hours, until creamsugar o someone leak the real numbers. It's all very cryptic, the people is mad and even Platinum Games quit making Bayoneta 2. It's like waiting for an exam.

I don't understand why the numbers have to be secret. I enjoy the NPD threads and waiting for creamsugar or Aqua to post cryptic stuff but I don't understand why it has to be this way. I mean I'd understand if people who paid for the numbers got them say a day to a week in advance of the general public. I just don't get why the full numbers can't come out for everyone eventually though.

I guess it may be way too late for requests? =(

I'd just like to know more in general...

Based on what we know...


MC 360 > MC PS3 > 100K

Thus TLOUR + TLOU > 200K

Mario Kart < 200K

Is that all we really know except for what you can figure out from Nintendo's PR statement? And the Vita?

Man, NPD threads are nuts without numbers.

Last time it was that isleofsomething guy.

This month it's hating on Wii U birthday present guy and top hat man.

What's coming next month?

September NPD will be interesting.

Not gonna lie I'm gonna miss Monty Oliver. I think the thread title should be changed in memory of his (short) legacy.

He's gonna be confused about waifus for the rest of his life :(

Sucks there weren't many numbers, maybe next month'll be better.
