  PR comments:

Sony:

“Thank you to our fans and partners for making PlayStation 4 the top-selling console and software sales leader for the month of March, as well as the number-one console for fans of The Division, according to NPD. We are truly humbled by the success and look forward to delivering more amazing gaming experiences throughout 2016, including the launch of PlayStation VR this October.”

Microsoft:

“In March, global hours spent gaming on Xbox One increased 89 percent compared to last year. Xbox Live engagement was driven by the greatest games lineup, including new titles released in March like ‘Killer Instinct: Season 3’ and ‘Tom Clancy’s The Division.’ ‘Killer Instinct: Season 3’ has seen record engagement across Xbox One and Windows 10 since it launched on March 29, making March the best month ever for the franchise with more than 6 million unique players.Last week, on April 5, we launched ‘Quantum Break’ to critical acclaim and it became the best-selling Xbox game around the world, and is now the biggest-selling new Microsoft Studios published IP this generation. We can’t thank our fans enough for their continued support and we’re looking forward to bringing more unprecedented experiences on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Xbox Live later this year.”

Oh shit I completely forgot about this. Looking forward to tonight!



A nice surprise, I forgot this was today.

PS4 looks comfortably overtracked to me.



hmm tasty...



Hehe, I'm looking forward to MLB numbers (most interested in if it has shown YoY growth or not). Also hardware! NPD hype woot woot

Sorry booty, but I totally disagree with what you have done, I mean trying to guess vgc tracking ( or at least with the logic, that you use !)
For instance, you have assumed 105k for ps4 in March last week (from 108k last week, why such a tiny drop?) , for vgc it could be 40k though... You can't be certain for what vgc would show! This will draw a wrong picture of how much vgc might  have undertracked or might have overtacked something.
