May I ask where this data is coming from? Where does NPD release their info?

NPD covers the North American market except for Canada. Canada's releases a bit later. They collect ... maybe 60% of retailers nationwide in the U.S.

 I understand all of that.  Im trying to figure out which website NPD releases their data on.    In other words, what site should I be refreshing to look for the data? xD

 Seems like DS and Ps3 are the big deviations, the others seem about right, once canada is taken into account
