Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter has revealed his predictions for August NPD North American hardware and game sales, due after market close on Thursday, September 13 - forecasting sales of $445 million, up 12% compared to last year's $399 million.

Pachter noted of the software sales predictions: "Our estimate reflects $310 million in sales contribution from new platforms (PS3, Wii, 360, PSP and DS)and current generation software sales of $135 million. Our forecast assumes PS2 software sales of $107 million, down 31% compared to last year and much weaker than the last three month's average of -20%, but consistent with our full year projection."
