Fuck off. No, I don't.

I'm happy to accept all sorts of criticism for the software sales since taking them over. It's been a mighty learning curve and I've made plenty of mistakes over the last couple of weeks. You can criticise those mistakes or argue that the extrapoaltions from the samples we receive are well off all you like, but I'm not going to be accused of making the figures up on a whim on our own website. I'm doing my best and hope to improve the accuracy of the figures over time and to make timely adjustments based on official data once I'm given that functionality.

I don't really know who you are or what you do, except from cursing me out on the forums. I do however know that VGC extrapolates numbers out of thin air, as we learned from the entire Spiderman XOne debacle, when they extrapolated sales numbers for a game that hasn't even released. Or how they extrapolated numbers of Borderlands 2 on Vita when that game was available only in a bundle and gotten an about 900% sales difference.

Or numerous other times when VGC had to go back and adjust their numbers by 100% or more after official announcements. 

Maybe you are not making numbers up straight away, but your numbers are atrocious and unreliable, laughable at the least. Nice of you to put up an effort, but I do not have to accept your poor attempts at extrapolating crappy numbers from poor sources.

Keep up the poor work, you are obviously not qualified to do better.
