Hello and welcome to the Video Game Industry thread.
What this thread is for:
Sales numbers, trends, press releases, fanboy spite, car/movie/food analogies.
What this thread isn't for:
VGchartz fake numbers, fans of the Playstation Portable*, movie talk that isn't a stupid videogame analogy. Monsters Inc. is worse than Cars, by the way.
What happened to the NPD Top Ten:
Publisher pressure on them changed their single sku by platform monthly top ten into combined SKU, no exact numbers. Platform holders will often release their hardware numbers, but they obviously don't have to.
Things to expect in April:
March NPDs and quarterly (in some cases yearly) fiscal reports from various industry members.
