VGC is doing the best it can and thats a OK.

Let's just say if the new NPD shows PS4 again on top on the US' market... some people will have no doubt that it is Xbone's biased. Just relaying what I have read on some boards.

those people and boards think its biased anyway, but why do those people matter??


You actually make a point here. But you know damn well it won't help it...

i cant understand why this is so hard to understand. could have XB1 outsell PS4 in april NPD? yes, it could have. nobody is saying its impossible or noo way its gonna happen. but, based on all the data that we have and the recent events that happened, its logical to assume that the PS4 outsold it, and when we see VGC showing XB1 > PS4 in usa when it has been wrong for the past 3 months, its logical to question the numbers. 

and the only thing that is childish in these threads are these pathetic attempts to "call out" other users, when these users questioning the numbers have actually been right. 


Well, exactly. Calling people childish for thinking logically is an insult to intelligence

Sales figures on VGChartz are based on estimates extrapolated from small retail samples. When Brett Walton (the owner of the site) was asked he gave the following answer:

"The methodology we use for all of our charts in all regions is the same and our data is arrived at by a combination of the following:

- Sampled direct sell-through data
- Industry knowledge and experience - applying past trends in terms of marketshares, regional breakdowns, casual vs hardcore and so on 
- plenty of statistical analysis, regression calculations, market projections
- Contact with industry figures - buy-side analysts (such as Pachter / Divnich), sell-side analysts who work with us on specific products / projects, manufacturers who work with us to project sales of their key titles
- Retail checks - we have a team who talk to stores and estimate shipment figures for low-stock and hard to find items which we struggle to track with our normal data samples.

Exactly how we get from these various sources of data to final figures differs from game to game and console to console and our exact methodologies are confidential for obvious reasons."

Oh my god, I'm dying.

Wow, after the adjustment last week was a lot better for PS4 and better overall too.
This week VITA DOMINATION!!! (At least in Japan )
Also overall, PSV nicely up and 3DS and PSP a little up too to partially balance the others down, including weekly leader PS4, help making a slow week of a slow period a little less awful.
Waiting for Mario Kart, because this gen needs Wii U to do better than now, 3rd parties need the whole gen to sell well overall to justify the costs of their biggest projects.

VGC isn't biased. and numbers can't be biased in this kind of way (they may be innacurate)... IT certainly is bothersome to have innacuraccies so obvious, but not really a problem or a bias problem. But it would certainly be better for ioi to look why they are getting PS4 and X1 numbers so wrong (comparatively to each other... because they are in the right magnitude) every week.
