Four_Chamber said:Microsoft continues to be the system to beat in North America. It's been a great 2011 for them so far and I imagine the holiday will look even better.
As I feared, 3DS saw a nasty weekly drop compared to the first two weeks after the drop, and it's probably going to drop even more next month. (Only <12% compared to the weekly average for all of August, though.) I'm guessing it'll drop to 45k/week in October.
3DS is still doomed here. :/

then you wouldn't see this:user_nat said:How do we know MS pr was talking about hardware sales and not overall?
· Total retail spend on the Xbox 360 platform in September (hardware, software and accessories) reached $534 million, the most for any console in the U.S. and more than total retail spend from the current-generation console competition combined. (Source: NPD Group, September 2011)
Yeah, that would be one heck of a coincidence.MrPink93485 said:I don't think it's a coincidence that Sony mentioned 20% growth and it equals 374k, while the Wii sells 240k, which happens to represent 58% of overall hardware unit sales in September.
jstevenson said:charting in the top 10 (all skus) as an exclusive is flopping these days?!
Sony:The Faceless Master said:i didn't see the Sony PR posted in the thread yet, hence me saying that.
NPDs September report saw double-digit growth for both PS3 software (52%) and hardware (20%), as increasing brand awareness continues to fuel interest with consumers. First-party software sales remained strong this month, with boosts from blockbuster titles like Resistance 3. The lower PS3 console price point and the upcoming release of exciting titles Uncharted 3, Everybody Dance and Ratchet and Clank will continue PlayStations momentum into the holiday season.
