Monty why do you insist on having the 360 reach 10 million? You dont approach a problem with an answer and then fit data to prove it.
You need to accept that these are solid estimates. VGCharts is very transparent and therefore seem credible. Unlike some other nextgenwars type of sites...
Why do I have to accept things at face value? Isn't it ok to question the stats?
As for vgcharts being "transparent", I highly disagree. They tell you they get numbers from NPD and Media Create... REALLY!?!?! That's not anything special there, random. The real question is where they get the rest of their data. Data from Europe, Mexico, and other parts of the world are NOT easy to come by.
I tell you what.... why don't you ask where they get all their numbers from and see how "transparent" they really are?
What does this site have to gain by saying MS didnt sell 10 million? You seem to take Microsoft's statistics at face value as you seem to try to fit there estimates with your numbers. And you have to agree that MS has an interest in misleading us... but really why would VGCharts lie? do you think they are run by Nintendo or Sony?
it just seems that you really want to spin numbers until we agree that the 360 is the sytem of the gods. the numbers i really would like to see is what % of 360's are defective. because i know of a few people with broken down 360's... yours truly included.
