Missing the full month of August sales here on Vgchartz takes out half the fun but still, tag.


Maybe this is ioi's new tactic, delay publishing the final weeks data until NPD is released, then hastily adjust that last week so that the month stacks up, and presto, VGChartz is never wrong again! It works for Japan on a weekly scale, why not stretch it to monthly in the US?

Honestly their US sales have been right enough the last couple months that that really isn't necessary imo. I heard some people say that he's on vacation but I still don't know if that was a joke or not, he definitely hasn't been on in the last 5 days.

Its cool, I was just kidding, they have been pretty spot in the last few. We've had bigger delays before, though that was usually around christmas when I'm sure the VGC team had more important things to do (family time). 

Probably more pressing question is how long we'll have to wait until the NPD numbers start to leak out, last month took ages!

Urgh don't remind me, I don't think I'll stay awake for it this month, at the end I'll just sit here at 4 AM tired and pissed and start insulting Creamsugar again, just like last month.

Won bet with t3mporary_126 - I correctly predicted that the Wii U's LTD at the end of 2014 would be closer to 9 million than 10 million. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6673287

Woohoo... I can't fucking wait!

I'm playing for the first time "The Last of Us" for PlayStation 4. The game is really amazing, it fascinates me. I'm curious to U.S. figures.


It keeps getting better too.....the beginning is the slowest part. The later chapters are incredible.

Hopefully we will get VGC numbers this afternoon, we're quite far behind now. I am expecting a close month between PS4 and X1


Really? I'm not. Madden bundle just replaced the regulkar sku for a week or so from what I heard, see another easy PS4 win.



Should be interesting. Didn't Patcher have predictions for this month?
