Ladies and gentlemen, our long national nightmare is finally over. After nearly six long days living in mortal terror that NPD would no longer be releasing its monthly console sales reports, we can finally breathe a sigh of relief. GameDaily is reporting that the big three console manufacturers have all signed on to allow the monthly drip of sweet, fanboy-fueling data that has become a morphine-like addiction for the game media.

The next drop of data is set to drip this Thursday, Nov. 15, easing the pain for just a little longer. For those of you who just can't wait that long for your fix, try to ease the cravings with some predictions from Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter. Oh, precious data ... never scare us like that again.
