The September NPD was a big month for the console wars. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were facing off against some really, really stiff expectations for the previous month... why?

Other than a new (old) Castlevania game hitting the Wii U Virtual Console and the latest adventure starring Pac-Man and his hauntly homies, there's not a heck of a lot of new content coming out on Nintendo consoles this week. Prepare to be underwhelmed.
Future Publishing had previously announced that they would be closing the doors on many of their printed magazines and websites affiliated with video games.
