NPD came out with a ‘Core Gaming 2014 Snapshot Report’ which came out with a ridiculous conclusion based on some questionable assumptions.
It’s going to be a rough month for Xbox fans, at least online. Titanfall may have topped NPD’s sales charts, but it did so in a March that’s seen software sales down year on year. It definitely wasn’t enough to raise Xbox One sales enough.
In reaction, Microsoft released a statement announcing that they have five million Xbox One consoles ‘sold-in’ to retailers.
NPD has released the figures for February of this year. Overall, things are looking up, with total spending up year on year bolstered by hardware sales. Software sales are down year on year, but up compared to the previous month.
