Don't see any numbers. Is aqua banned here too?

I don't think that Vgchartz would do such a thing. Maybe Aqua isn't alowed to share the numbers anymore.

But why sales numbers are such a problem for NPD to publish it? I mean sales numbers are just.....sales numbers.

Companies pay big money for those numbers. So if someone is just giving them out for free, it hurts business.

IIRC 4-5 years ago numbers that were published were not a problem. Well, now they are

But is it 100k? Man NPD will be terrible if no more leaks will arrive. We will have nothing to work with anymore

Not that there's much to discussion without any numbers. It sucks how hush-hush NPD is being. I know I've said it until I'm blue in the face, but it's ridiculous that video game sales figures are treated as highly-valuable information that shouldn't be shared with the public. You don't see this with other forms of entertainment. Finding album sales and especially TV ratings and box office revenues is an easy task, but finding out how much a console sells in a given month may end up being harder than finding out what exactly happened to Jimmy Hoffa. If Aqua is gone then hopefully creamsugar comes to the rescue, because the end of NPD numbers being available for us plebians will make the future of sales discussions a bleak one.
