Congrats to PS3, for largest year over year gains!

Two negatives from a sales data perspective:

NPD has delayed their public release of US sales data, which is understandable. They are serving paying customers, not us non-paying consumers. However, I imagine that they get a lot of publicity from this.

garaph.info has stopped updating their Japan software sales.

    The sales boost for the PS3 slim seems to have gone. What game in the next two months do you guys think will boost hardware sales on each of the consoles?

    Well, Modnation Racers sold under 100k. It came in 18th. Lost Planet 2 ( PS3 ) was rejected, it didn’t make the top 20 at all.
