Video game investors will have to wait a couple more business days to see September's NPD results for video game software and hardware sales. 

"We have just released a communication to our clients, explaining that, due to last minute processing requirements, the NPD Video Games Retail Tracking information for September 2009 will now be released on Monday, October 19."

Investors are hoping for a turn around in video game stock sentiment.  Publishers Activision (ATVI), Electronic Arts (ERTS), THQ (THQI), and Take Two Interactive (TTWO), along with retailer Gamestop Inc (GME), have all been outperformed by the S&P 500 in a one year period.  Since October 16th, 2008, Gamestop is break even while the S&P has risen 21%.  Activision gained 7% but Take Two is down 4%, EA is down 23% and THQ is down 36%.  Analysts are pointing toward a long list of highly anticipated titles this holiday and in 2010 to bring the video game publishers and retailers back to life.
