    So you still expecting WiiU to sell on par with XB1 in US this holiday?

    And one more thing - http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6063439

    We got an official NPD leak a month ago, the gap is like 100k now with 360 selling 75k last month Vs Wii's 16k. Looks like it was never off the table ;-)

The joke of Neogaf was they thought Vgchartz was a threat to NPD, it wasn't - NPD has lots of users paying lots of money and we were never going to change that. We were a threat to Neogaf site...
