That's for real ? What vg has to answer to this nonsense ?


Those numbers are from the people who would have gotten it obviously!

any adjustment coming for last week numbers?



They dont need to adjust now, it would be useless since NPD is coming, they'll adjust all the numbers at once



Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m

So let me get this straight. Not only does VGC continue having XBO beating out PS4 in the US after 3-months straight of PS4 winning NPD PLUS XBO price going back up but they also now list sales for titles that are not even released yet?

Makes me wonder if this site is being abandoned.

Would be nice to hear from Brett on why he feels the XBO continues to lead the way in the US despite everything else pointing to a different outcome.



Is NPD next Thursday by any chance?

ioi is an Xbox defender & I wouldn't rule out that he is trying to make it look stronger than it really is, not only because he is a fan of the product but also to try keep interest in the sales battle between Xbone & PS4.  If PS4 was clearly winning according to VGC numbers people might stop checking this site every week, but the obviously wrong numbers are kind of backfiring in that they are destroying VGchartz already shaky credibility.

 

Yup, 6 days till NDP

Just need someone to make a thread, like this one: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=159903&page=1.

 

Also look at the date of that thread lol.

Always wondered why ioi and charts got banned from GAF. These past few months have shown me exactly why

Honestly, over the past year it has felt like the numbers are just automated sometimes.

They kept tracking the DS in Japan for ages after MC/Famitsu stopped and Nintendo had stopped shipments.  The last time they shipped any DS units to Japan (at least enough to register on their financial statements) was the quarter ending June 2012 when they shipped 10k.  Yet VGC was still tracking it till the end of 2013.  I can't imagine they were getting actual data that led to 15 units this week, but 14 units the next.

There was also an issue with the PSP last year where Nintendo's data showed it doing decent numbers ~20k weekly, but VGC was showing near 1k weekly.  Just looked it up, one example, the week ending April 13th was originally shown as 1,129.  The current number is 23,117.  That continued for a while.

The 3DS has also had a lot of issues.  The current overtracking has been obvious for at least three months and nothing was done to fix it.

Then there are the issues where games that haven't been released get sales data and ones that have don't.

It all just adds up to make it look like nobody is actively paying attention to the data that comes out and using it to improve the numbers.



So are all the Sales threads from now on VGC doom threads?

Seeing all these stuck up reactions to the numbers makes me want the X1 to win NPD.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
