Predictions: NPD September 2008

NPD video game sales data for September 2008 will be released this Thursday.  My hardware predictions are as follows:

 

Predicted Total Hardware

Predicted Weekly Sales

% Change of Weekly Sales

Wii

588,000

145,000

+3.84%

360

320,000

80,000

+31.15%

PS3

232,000

58,000

+0.11%

PS2

163,000

40,750

+-9.51%

NDS

630,000

157,500

-2.76%

PSP

282,000

70,000

-10.83%

Notes regarding my predictions:

  • All console platforms should see a bump in total sales in September, though note that September is tracked as a 5 week month (compared to the usual 4).
  • 360 will see a large increase thanks to a sizable price drop accross all SKUs.
  • DS and Wii will return to pre-August levels of total sales.

Actual sales data from The NPD Group will be released on Thursday, October 16th after market close (4:00 PM).
