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~

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.

I predict that I won't give a flying rat's bare behind.
My mind is aglow with whirling, transient nodes of thought, careening through a cosmic vapor of invention.

I predict that my prediction will be spot on about the sales this month. Too bad it is too much for your human minds to handle.

Is there any doubt the PS4 will sell more units once again?

I'll be surprised if Xbox one sales 100k, I expect the Xbox one to slow to a creep
