-These do not include Canada sales
-Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron is a pack in
-DS hardware is intentionally 10% or so higher
-Guitar Hero III on 360 presumably has a stand alone version as well, so not as different as it first looks.

I believe NPD have been undertracking Xbox360 for the last few months so I'm pretty happy with the comparisons - we are intentionally tracking higher than NPD on 360.

Note - I WILL NOT be making any major alterations to our figures in light of NPDs information. Most software is actually almost identical and it is 360 software we disagree most on.
I'm happy with your reaction because I was already afraid that if you would change the sales of the 360 dramatically it would harm the credibility of this site. And that people would say you're just copying the NPD numbers.

Keep up the good work!

well hopefully you still adjust hardware numbers doesnt seem right that you are knowing and intentionally tracking higher for one console but not the others

Sony's claim HAS TO BE shipped figures. Its the only thing that makes sense. They have NO access to "retailer to consumer" sales - only units they sell to retailers.

Looking forward to the adjustment of the main figures + software figures. Going to change a lot.

Wii gains about 250k over the 360 worldwide, and almost 100k over the PS3 worldwide.

URNotE, who says NPD is right and VGC is wrong? ioi won't change 360 hardware probably. They PREDICT just like we do.

i thought sony (stringer) claimed that the ps3 only sold 30 to 40k in october weekly that would put the sales figures dead on

If you dont plan to make any alteration to the hardware sold then you will end up with a massive difference with NPD .If you want the site to be accurate you should do the appropiate changes .Nobody will take the site seriously if there is a 1 million difference in numbers ,specially having the NPD ones at hand .

The "I believe NPD have been undertracking " X360 dont work either .I could do (hypotethically ) my own site with the numbers I "believe " too .
