Dumb NPD

and yet Wii Fit, which is more of a game attempt than wii play, won't count as software on their charts. They're screwy.

Also, go Nintendo. 2.7 million copies of smash, that's astonishing.

PS3 is going to pull ahead with the Blu-ray disc now the only HD disc.

Remember that there are 6.45 million more 360s in homes according to VGchartz or 5.8 according to NPD..

That's only because of the year head start for 360. There are more 360s in homes right now.

Did anyone else think Army of Two was just kind of lame? I mean it was fine for what it was trying to do but really, was it better than most the big time shooters these days?
