PostSubject: No More Monthly Sales Numbers from NPD   Tue Oct 12, 2010 10:07 pm

NPD Group, the organization responsible for tracking and reporting console and game sales numbers, announced today that it will no longer be giving this information out publicly as of October 14th. People who pay for a subscription (which is costly) will still receive these numbers, but the information will no longer be available or publishable to non-subscribers.

Console sales will simply be reported in terms of how much cash they generated in total, and will not be divided by platform any longer. The top-selling games will still be ranked from one to ten, but the actual sales numbers will no longer be given out.

What this means for gamers is that the only way we're going to know how sales of a particular game or console are going is from the publishers themselves. What do you guys think, will you trust numbers if they're not coming from a third party?

Does this mean gamers can go back to acting like gamers instead of stock brokers? Back in the day you would talk to your friends about which games had the best graphics...not about what's selling the most. Sleep

Obviously you would talk about the gameplay, but most games didn't have much of a story when I was growing up. It was all about the graphics and the violence back in those days. I remember when Mortal Kombat was the talk of the school yard for months. Everyone was swapping fatality codes. Nobody was talking about sales.

I'm cheering, "Yay! Now I won't have to hear pointless arguments that prove absolutely nothing in terms of quality!" The sales argument always annoyed me to death.

Same. The very people who THINK sales numbers owns someone, actually own themselves. I told MLD last June, each month you don't make a "360 beats PS3 in NPD" you're basically just relaying that the PS3 beat it; after that you'll realize that bragging about NPD numbers is useless. How many NPD videos has he done since last June? Laughing
