Q: What's NPD?

A: NPD stands for National Product Diary. It's a firm that tracks sales and purchases of product. Many companies uses their results to gauge the success and failure of their approach.

Q: What will these results reveal?

A: How many consoles were sold in NA on a given month.

Q: When do the results usually come out?

A: Second Thursday of every month which would coincide for May 15th.

Q: Are these May's results?

A: Nope, April's.

Q: Does the release of a console in more countries affect this result?

A: No, this is just for NA.

Q: Are you sure? People on this board would say otherwise

A: People on this board also believe in secret sauce, so tread carefully.

Q: I don't believe sales matter and neither does Microsoft.

A: Microsoft said "They would kill Sony." and Phil Spencer said "We're going to win." Not to mention Larry Hryb's "This is a marathon, we'll win." so I'd assume they DO care about sales.

Q: So what do I have to do?

A: Simple, write your prediction and, if you want, the reasoning behind your prediction.

Q: What if I say 'I don't care?

A: It would mean you moved the cursor over to the reply button, clicked and wasted precious seconds of your life typing a reply. Sounds to me like you do care or care enough to waste your time.

My prediction

PS4: 341K
XBO: 220K

PS4's winning streak continues but this is THE most crucial sales month. Yes, I believe it's even more crucial than Titanfall because this is the month when sales stablize. If Xbox, with a dwindling list of exclusives, cannot keep up the sales numbers then I forsee the beginning of a downward spiral until October, which would leave Sony to build a sizable lead with May, June, July, August and September wins.

I could be wrong, though. Discuss~

What if I care about your topic enough to post that I predict that I won't care?

I predict negative sales. Owners of the Xbox One and the PS4 will all throw their consoles through the windows of their respective manufacturers, and then form a human chain, holding hands and singing "We've Only Just Begun", possibly followed by a tickle fight.


We've only just begun - to live.
White lace and promises. A kiss for luck and were on our way and yet we've just begun.
Sharing horizons that are new to us, watching for signs along the way.
Talking it over just the two of us, working together day to day.

But I didn't really ask about the Wii U. In fact, last NPD had Wii U + Wii at sub 100k

PS4 will win again against the console that already has its most overhyped game for the whole Gen released
Hell they didn't even have a slightest chance in march with the most overhyped game in a long time + all the price cuts.
Back to old price?Titanfall dated...well PS4 will have it easier than ever :D

Only thing that matters...especially cause it is in the USA
Makes it even better and tastier

Not only Sony dominated the World with the PS4 - No they even destroy the competitor in their home.

PS4 will have outsold the Xbox One again.

Then you get....

Multiple topics saying the same thing.
blatant troll topics on both sides
fanboy meltdowns
Others in denial pretending they don't care (yet they will post that repeatedly)
Heavy use of the terms "pony" and "ponies"
multiple reassurance topics "I love my Xbox One"
a few whiney "state of the board topics" complaining about trolls
The "to Kinect or not to Kinect" debate renewed again
more trolling on both sides
more reassurance
more meltdowns
more denial
more complaining
more use of the words "pony" and "ponies"
