Wii U 101k? What is VGChartz smoking?


It could be overtracked but why do u act like it's an impossible number? Last month, Wii U was up nearly 30% YoY according to Nintendo, it's not crazy for February to be the same.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

You have to say the numbers this month look like decent estimates. We'll all be wise after the fact if they're way off.

Only situations I can see are, 3DS sales were even better than thought, X1 permanent cut had a bigger effect or ps4 is beasting in the US.

Reason I think the ps4 could be undertracked is this. Sony showed this site undertracked the ps4 WW by about 400k between January and February. They made adjustments but note that these were added to 2014 numbers. Hence on this site ps4 is oovertracked for 2014 but under tracked for 2015.

The big question is where do these sales go. I'd be shocked if a decent portion wasn't from the US because otherwise the ps4 is heavily undertracked outside of the US and japan.

So its possible that ps4 is undertracked in the usa and considering the x1 wasn't far off on online retailers it could be too.

Wouldn't it be great if everything was undertracked lmao!



Wait Aquamarine isn't leaking anymore? Can someone give me a short explanation of what happened?



I reckon the PS4 will win by a bigger gap this time. I'm going to 75k - 85k



 

The PS5 Exists.

A veritable shitstorm from the sounds of it, works for JP Morgan, and apparently they identified her as the leak, and it's been an increasing battle leading up until recently when ultimatums were made so it's a total shutdown or...her job.



Tagging for results!



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

No idea, don't know enough about the whole thing.  I know that any business could fire you in a heartbeat though, and depending on your position at a place like JP Morgan, you could be losing a great deal of money.



Basically, NPD has been fucking around with the numbers in order to figure out who was giving out the wrong info. I'm sure Brett thinks this is true too. NPD has been all over the place with corrections in the past year, and if they can identify a single person in this "data breach", they must have been fucking around with the numbers enormously because Aquamarine only ever released vague ideas and percentages.
