Just picked up Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories. Dissapointed that it's a dungeon crawler. But I enjoy the battle system.

Well I haven't really gotten that far into the game since I'm like 15 minutes in (literally). Maybe my tone will change later.

So lets break this down. Its october so its not mega sales time yet but so  many big games got released and not so huge returns YET for most. Obviously  there is the economy so that hurts... but then you look at Nintendo and wonder  if that has anything to do with it.

Lets start with the reigning king, Nintendo, who at this point I think  doesn't have to release a new game for the wii and it will still destory the  competition. Seriously guys, the Wii may top the PS2s numbers, its pace is just  absurd. These numbers are just out of this world crazy. Any notion that the HD  systems will come in and steal sales as prices go down has to be proven wrong  already, the wii is selling like this regardless of what the competition does.

On a month with so many new releases, Wii Fit, Mario Kart Wii and Wii Play  (which is NOT a game damn you NPD!!) which came out a million years ago outsold  most of the games on the list. Crazy. But if one thing makes me happy is that  there is NO Wii Music!!!! VICTORY!!

360, excellent month, I know that when compared with Wii it doesn't seem so  impressive but its sales have increased big time since the price drop. It has  now surpassed the PS3 for year sales. Fable 2 shows that 360 owners continue to  buy every big time exclusive. Next month Gears 2 will be monsterous.

Sony, thanks for playing. With that price they might as well not compete. Its  second savior of the year comes out and nothing. PS3 owners show they hate  everything. LBP wasn't horrible considering the epic faliure of a launch it had,  hopefully it does very well next month and is a million seller... but we all  know how important first week sales are so its not a good sign. Socom selling  well, still a big franchise for Sony. Where are the third party games?

The biggest story maybe the death of the music games, well maybe not death  but decline. GH4 came out this month... not one SKU made the list. RB2, no  longer on the list. Wii Music not on the list. Did they all beat each other up.  Other third party games, Fallout 3, great on 360, not so much on PS3. Dead Space  deserved better, great game guys. SR2, wasn't the first a million seller, well  this one wont be in the US. NBA2k9 made the list, kind of random. No Midnight  Club, no Far Cry 2, no Bioshock PS3.

I think there might be too many games out, sales are getting spread too thin.  The sales are there, the numbers are very good, just not a big standout other  than Fable and the Wii stuff. Last month you have SW sell a bazillion copies,  Mercs 2 did better than most games on this list. RB2 (360) sold in the 300K  range. So you compare numbers from last month to this month and overall sales  are nearly the same but the quality of the games on the list have increased  dramatically, sales have not.

God dammit people and their self-fulfilling prophecies. The gaming industry is NOT supposed to be affected by recession, which is specifically why I bought Gamestop. Yet it continues to go down.

I'd say that video games are recession resistant, not recession proof. Nothing is recession proof except for the necessities of life (i.e. food, gas, medicine, shelter, ect.).

My video game purchasing certainly has dropped significantly over the past couple years, and I can see myself buying even fewer games next year. Thankfully, I'm not really seeing this as a bad thing because it has forced me to play the games I own rather than just buying new ones all the time. Happy

Very true. GT: World Tour all platform sales were less then Guitar Hero III's for the 360 or Wii last year. Personally I'm sorta glad that this trend is out of the way. Poor poor Konami though.Cry

Holy shit! Those Wii sales are crazy. Great to see Fable 2 do well. The sales for Fallout 3 and Dead Space are pretty good. Hopefully they'll hang tough and continue to do well especially Dead Space which is an excellent game. I'm surprised with the lack in showing from the music games. The 360 did quite well. Sony really needs to cut the price on the PS3 which will be good for me, the cheaper the better. I can't wait to see next month's chart. Gears of War 2 will be monstorous and the 360 should continue to sell strong.

Wii Play is a controller with a demo disc, NOT A GAME. Without the controller it would NEVER be on the list. There is no denying that. To count it as a retail game is just stupidity.

If you are going to buy an extra controller you might as well get it. I agree that it's not really a game on it's own merit. That being said, it did keep me busy at my cousin's house for a good couple of hours. Especially the tank game. If nothing else it's kind of an extended introduction to Wii on top of Wii Sports, for casual gamers who have never played video games. After that it would make a nice coaster.

It was kind of funny though, every time I went into Future Shop for about a year, I heard a salesperson trying to push Wii Play HARD to mothers buying Wiis for their kid, ie. "You get the controller you're going to need anyway, plus 9 games! GASP" That, and Happy Feet..... or maybe that was so bad it was thrown in as a package.

Wii Play is a controller with a demo disc, NOT A GAME. Without the controller it would NEVER be on the list. There is no denying that. To count it as a retail game is just stupidity.

Demo disc? Wii Play is about as "full" as Wii Sports. And how are you so sure that it wouldn't be on the list?

Fuck the haters, laser hockey is awesome. Plus witout the controller the game would be 10 bucks! Would probably still sell.

Neogaf pics time!!!!

Fable 2 vs LBP

Someone trolled SMG for no reason and got banned

I am not sure what this is, and it has nothing to do with the NPD thread. But it is funny, so....

PVW still no comp here. NPD over 800'000 Wii-ners sold? WTF?   BTW guys, if u own a DS you need to get Soul Bubbles. Check some youtube vids out. I got it for $20 from amazon and it's fantastically addictive and well made. P.s just got COD5 on wii. Game is really pissing me off right now .
