Forums - Sales Discussion - In progress NPD predicting tool

That's a great idea. And this thread should definitely replace the old amazon thread.

You should take into account the market share of each retailers.

You are clearly putting a lot of your time into gathering this data. Not to be a downer, but I don't think this is very useful information; at least not in it's current state.

You had to have noticed that Gamestop is weighting PS4 at 250+ points, and giving 0 to Switch). Zygote pointed this out a few pages back. I apologize as I didn't read the whole thread, so maybe this was discussed and I haven't gotten to it yet.

This is kind of beta/prototype at the moment, I'm sure as time goes on the accuracy will improve. 



Great idea and gives a better view perhaps of whats going on, might need a bit of tinkering based on results, but good job.

Would be interesting if the XBO ends up winning the month but it won't be much of a surprise because of the Spring sale and the release of Sea of Thieves.

It was discussed in the OP lol, and further in the thread as well.

I don't expect this month numbers to be accurate at all. The idea is to use NPD results each month to try adjust the formula (weighting retailers, twisting point system...etc) to predict the month after more accurately. 

Right now, I am only displaying raw data (I already made a small twist to gamestop list, using top 200 instead of top 100 to include switch).
