GTA V expected to double September NPD sales year-over-year

The industry has been limping all year, but the record-breaking debut of Grand Theft Auto V has healed the wound, according to NPD estimates released by Wedbush Securities. Console and handheld software sales are expected to total $910 million, up 83 percent year-over-year, driven primarily by GTA V’s release. GTA V, EA Sports’ FIFA 14, and 2K Sports’ NBA 2K14 are estimated to be the top three in software sales, with additional sales coming from August’s releases of Madden 25 and Disney Infinity.
