NPD math time with a SHOCKING revelation

Ok, but that doesn't prove his "March has 35" days argument. It makes sense that they break months up by weeks, and that would mean that there would be 8 months with 28 days, and 4 months with 35 days, but I have seen nothing to show that this past March was one of the 35 day months.

If March is always 35 days as the TC claims, wouldn't that mean that the 35 day months are always the same? and if that is the case, wouldn't that mean that January is always 35 days as well? Why would they have 2 of the 4 35 day months in the first quarter of the year? I think it is more likely that the number of weeks in a month changes based on when the weeks start and end in that month.

"Note: March, June, September, and December are always five weeks of tracking, while the rest are 4 weeks. NPD does 4-4-5 (weeks/month) quarters, so that year on year quarterly comparisons are valid."

And then Xbone fans wonder why they keep getting mocked. Man...


Yup, the smart ones either are keeping their 360s or getting into the 8th gen via wiiu, ps4, pc or retro gaming.

What a hectic 24 hours these have been, eh? Well check this out:

Xbones sold according to NPD:
Feb = 258k XB1 over 4 weeks (28 days)
Mar = 311k XB1 over 5 weeks (35 days)

[snip]

That's right, Xbone sales FELL in the month that its biggest game came out. In a bundle. With a price drop. Fell. What the hell is going on?


You see how 311,000 is bigger than 258,000? That means Xbox sales GREW during the month, not fell. Giving some of the data by month and some by week is stupid, and is only done to try to prove your point.

Please stop.

311k in 5 weeks is a growth after 258k in 4 weeks ?

Oh the humanity !

That's right folks. There are now 35 days in March!

Also, dnmt topic! STOP TAKING THE BAIT YOU FOOLS!


NPD always counts March as 35 days for some reason. Now what do you have to say about Xbone sales not only staying below PS4 but also dropping in its most important month of the year? Any opinion on that? Genuinely curious.


Probably because nobody likes it. You can finally stop posting.


You can't seem to stop posting in a topic you hate so much, rustled jimmies?


Did you and dnmt set a date yet?
