Alright guys, this is going to be something we try to do on a monthly basis to see how close we can line up with the true NPD numbers released around this time each month. Last month was the first full month of the $100 price cut for both the PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360. So, I expect a huge spike in sales for both consoles, but for the PlayStation 3 to lead the way. I also think that the impending launch of the PSPgo could have resulted in low PSP sales, so I’ll be taking that into account as well.

We’d appreciate it if you’d include your predictions this month in the comment section below and we’ll see who can nail this thing down the closest.

1. PlayStation 3 – 475K (due to price drop)
2. Xbox 360 – 350K (due to price drop)
3. Nintendo Wii – 290K
4. PlayStation Portable – 120K
5. Nintendo DS – 400K

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that I am probably 20K or so off from each item, but I’ll give each console and handhelf the benefit of the doubt. I think the majority of NPD numbers will be an increase this year over last year’s numbers from the same time period.

So, what do you guys think?

  1. The Wii should get another little bump as soon as the price drop takes place.

  3. @Michael

    Last month’s numbers haven’t been revealed yet whatsoever. They are revealed later this week.

  4. God … Cool down, Katcx … You go, Dean! xD I’m thinking the 360 sales will be a bit lower and the Wii sales will be a bit higher.

  5. i predict that the wii sells would jump a little, that 360 sells would increase a bit since the 360 wasent selling so good for the last month, and ps3 sells would be a bit lover than what they are now but the ps3 would still sell the highest among these 3 consoles
