Moore: MS likely first with next console

Duh? Man, Moore really goes out on a limb with that Pachter-worthy prediction.

Slow news day, indeed.

He's no longer with Microsoft, so it's not the same as Tretton saying Sony should win for the betterment of the industry.

All I'm saying is that everyone and their dog could make that easy prediction. M$ isn't going to allow any other company to be first.

Oh, OK, I was just reading your comment and misunderstood.  It was meant chronilogically and not sales-wise.  That makes more sense then.  Though I'd disagree with your assessment again, though, since a lot of people keep saying the next Wii will be first (not saying those people are right, but to a lot of people it's not as obvious as you suggest).

  Nintendo isn't a competitor to M$ or Sony, so they don't count. Nyaa

The Globe And Mail (who are these people anyway) review for a Boy and His Blob is fairly amusing.  The guy complains about the $50 pricetag, but fails to realize that it's retailing for $40 just about everywhere, if not less.

wow, this game is never going to see a european release is it?  who are we kidding? Sad

at least we're getting muramasa in 5 weeks or so

It's $35 on Amazon today. Get the Homebrew mod and I'll send you a copy.

that's very tempting actually.  if i paypaled you the cash + p & p i'm sure it would still work out pretty cheap.  i should look into the homebrew mod once again maybe.  are there no side effects or drawbacks what so ever?

Technically there is no drawback.  It doesn't change anything on your Wii except take up some blocks on your harddrive.  Depending on which mod you use, you may need to have 2 SD cards - one for when you want to use Homebrew Channel and one when you want to play games off of your SD card.  Not a huge deal though.

From what I've heard Nintendo does periodically check people's Wiis to see if they have the Homebrew Channel.  I think this is a rumor though, as I've never heard of this happening to anyone, nor have I heard what happens if they find it on your Wii.  Iga is really the man to ask about this though.

Good to see that Chinatown Wars is scoring well at this early point.  However I'll be real curious to see how it sells.  I wouldn't be surprised to see this also tank.  I've half suspected the game didn't do well with the GTA audience due to the change back to the overheard perspective rather than because it was on the DS.

^I think that it may well turn out to be a PSP3000 seller. With the attention that the PSPGo has brought back to the PSP format and the traditional support of GTA on the PSP it might add up to a good one for Sony.

I think CTWars did not sell on the DS because the target audience of GTA tends to look at the DS as being their little brother's system (and they used the persepctive as one of the many excuses not to be loyal to their franchise).

Hmm I didn't expect the Wii to sell as good as it did last month.

Awesome numbers for ODST. Kudos to Bungie for delivering an excellent game.

I have a feeling those 4 days of the price-cut represented a big chunk of the Wii's sales.

I'm surprised Scribblenauts didn't make the top 10.  It was higher on Amazon.com than Inside Story for virtually all of September.

For the first time since july of last year when MGS4 hit, the PS3 is actually the best selling console. The price drop has increased sales like mad but the wii with a price drop very late in the month almost caught up with it. The 360 with a price drop of its own and a Halo game didn't really change it's usual sales pattern making it last place which is a bit shocking. Will the PS3 keep this up, not against the wii, the wii will completely dominate the holidays. But I could see the PS3 outselling the 360 this holiday season, they did this well with no major title, what happens when Uncharted 2 and Ratchet hit. Oh and of couse the DS is the best selling system overall, it will never stop, NEVER.

On the software side, no surprise that Halo ODST was a major seller. As I predicted, i figured it would sell half of what Halo 3 did so I was close. I am surprised that the Beatles Rock Band did not sell that much. I guess with all the SKUs added its near a million but I figured it to do even more. I am glad it outsold GH5 though. Wii Sports Resort will sit on that spot for a long time. Nice to see Mario and Luigi get tons of love. Batman for the PS3 still selling strong while the 360 version falls off, when have we ever seen that, maybe exclusive content does help. 360 games selling great as usual with Madden and Marvel up on the list as well. Hey, there is no wii fit! And wii play is off the list for like 3 months now, WOOHOO!

NPD added that The Beatles: Rock Band outsold Guitar Hero 5, saying that MTV’s Beatles game sold 595,000 units in total across the three platforms while Activision’s sequel sold 499,000 copies in total across its four platforms (which include PlayStation 2).

Again I thought it would sell more but the ratio between Beatles and GH is not a surprise.

Hmm I didn't expect the Wii to sell as good as it did last month.

I'm surprised Scribblenauts didn't make the top 10.  It was higher on Amazon.com than Inside Story for virtually all of September.

Seriously?  There was never a chance for it to make the top 10.

Like I said, I use Amazon as a sales barometer and usually its pretty accurate.  And for most of the month it was the top selling DS games. With all the early good word it had, I really expected it to break 250K.  Guess the so-so reviews caught up with it.  But if we get another breakdown by console you'll see it being #2 behind Inside Story.

Maybe, I would sooner expect Mario kart and NSMB ahead though.

Do  my eyes fucking deceive me or is there some change in NPD?

That means I can't interrupt it when we do it on the podcast.

YES!  I CALLED IT!  Halo and price drop did nothing, PS3 topped the charts, unlike a certain guy with a Wesker avatar...

I'm going to have a list of predictions we all made on last month's NPD podcast about this month to show you all how wrong you were Nyaa

And yeah, kind of sucky numbers for The Beatles Rock Band.

NPD added that The Beatles: Rock Band outsold Guitar Hero 5, saying that MTV’s Beatles game sold 595,000 units in total across the three platforms while Activision’s sequel sold 499,000 copies in total across its four platforms (which include PlayStation 2).

Again I thought it would sell more but the ratio between Beatles and GH is not a surprise.

And shows that statement by the Activision dep a while back was total BS, as expected

The PS3 has begun its climb back to first place! Pachter is right! At this rate it will only take Sony 25 years but the PS3 shall win this generation.  Nyaa

Though Pachter's "Sony will win the holiday season" he clarified to mean Oct - Dec, so this one doesn't even count toward that.  So next NPD we can start the Pachter count!

Holy Shit! I just killed the Omega Pirate in less than a minute!  Didn't think that was possible.

Carry on with the NPD talk.
