Racial Diversity Gaming Hour 38: Pachter was very wrong; September NPD results

RDGH 38 is live, and a lot of fun! Ben Shillabeer-Hall and Garri Bagdasarov join host Glenn Gordon for another great episode, and they're not alone!
We are just one weekend removed from the incredible finale to the League of Legends World Championship. No spoilers here just in case some of our listeners haven't yet seen it, but expect more on Worlds next week. Until then, now is a fantastic time to catch up on the battle between Samsung White and Star Horn Royal Club in Korea and find out who won the summoner's cup. Honestly, even if you already know who won, it's worth watching these great matches.
This week has been great on Twitter. You, our gamers, joined the RDGH crew to chat about the price of Project Morpheus, console resolution parity, the DRIVECLUB launch issues, and whether or not you would sacrifice free PlayStation Plus games for a stronger PSN. There were even some comments out favorite energy drinks! Thanks for tweeting and sharing with us! Join the party on Twitter @TheRDGH.
After a layoff spree in February of this year, things finally seem to be looking up at Sony Santa Monica, which has been hiring many new professionals. What could the studio behind God of War be up to?
There are also rumors about some of the things in store for Destiny. "The Dark Below," its first expansion pack, is expected for release in December, and there are some rather specific reports about new sub-classes and raids!
This past week has also been controversial because of one Michael Pachter, the video game industry analyst infamous for his predictions. He surprised gamers everywhere by announcing his prediction that Xbox One would outsell PlayStation 4 for September. Spoiler alert: he was completely wrong.
We know this because September's NPD results are in, and we're happy to walk you through them! There are some interesting surprises in them, especially the sales of Destiny for Xbox One versus those of the PS4. The crew discusses why gamers should take that particular bit of information with reservations.
This week, the intro music is "Warriors," a fantastic song by Imagine Dragons that has been League of Legends' theme for the World Championships. The members of Imagine Dragons are LoL fans themselves and they could not have written a more amazing song for such a spectacular event. Without question, gamers should pick this song up on iTunes as soon as possible.
Our ending music needs no introduction. "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-A-Lot. 'Nuff said. Buy it on iTunes or Amazon if you don't have it already (and you should).
All of this and much more comprises yet another great episode of RDGH. Tune in next week for episode 39! Until then, remember to treat all gaming platforms equally and with respect. Don't be a racist.
