Some people crawled from their hideouts to overjoy and celebrate, but don't get too drunk over it.

Also if ioi was here he would say 7,5% is either or both a statistical and technical draw.

Anyway congrats x1 to to reap and saw. Sony better put their 1st parties schedule to better management and get a great E3. No knee jerk reaction, but can't allow themselves to letargy unless they want MS biting their Ass.

174k so down 25k YOY

So the XB1 won by 13k? NPD isn't 100% accurate so this to me could be called a draw.

Good observation.

 

NPD USA's stated margin of error for console POS sell-through is 5-10%, depending on the title (NPD Australia / NPD Canada has varied reliability rates due to unique retailer networks).

So theoretically, the XBO > PS4 win could be reversed if NPD was only 90% accurate this month and NPD's algorithms were completely off.

 

Basically, the difference isn't significant enough to declare a definitive win outside of the latent margin of error in the data.

Interesting to note this month.
