Does GameIndustry not obtain this info on its own due to you know.. being a Gaming Industry Site?

I'd rather get the details from official sources other than Twitter.

Not to say it is untrue but I figure you guys would be privy to this info.

In any case, At this point we should all be celebrating as the gaming Industry is very healthy at this time.

I never had any doubt. Where else can one get Movie like Experiences, Wonderful Music, Extrodinarily Art AND interactivity in it all?

Yup.. games are the melting pot.

@Nelsun Rivera: The way it tends to work is the NPD send out the month's data privately to all the publishers/platform holders a week or so before it is released to the media/public. At that time, some companies choose to release select factoids (such as this one). Since the information is confidential until NPD release it for the media, this is the only way we can source info ahead of the full monthly breakdown. Expect a lot more when NPD sends us the full data soon.
