and an even smaller possibility that Assassin's Creed will be #1 (extra platform, 4 extra days, strong 2nd week...).
Unless i'm reading this wrong, VGC has Unity's FW at 600k-700k. Ubi said Syndicate had a weaker first week but better legs so overall should be similar. That's not enough to be #1
I said it's a small possibility. I don't trust VGC software numbers even 1%, they just make those figures up as they see fit.
Fuck off. No, I don't.
I'm happy to accept all sorts of criticism for the software sales since taking them over. It's been a mighty learning curve and I've made plenty of mistakes over the last couple of weeks. You can criticise those mistakes or argue that the extrapoaltions from the samples we receive are well off all you like, but I'm not going to be accused of making the figures up on a whim on our own website. I'm doing my best and hope to improve the accuracy of the figures over time and to make timely adjustments based on official data once I'm given that functionality.
