It was a ban bet, but we never made a new once once the ban bets were banned.



So is wii really overtracked by a million? Just lulz. It has not been adjusted down? Does that also mean that ps2 did not lose record for one weeks/months sales?

Not necessarily because NPD is not the authority, official shipment reports are. Luckily in Nintendo's case regional data is given for shipments, so we'll be able to tell who is closer.

  Something alongs the lines that the reason it won't be adjusted down was to keep these numbers aligned with the rest of the year. Also  something about waiting for shipment figures to make an adjustment.

 

Also it wasn't overtracked by a million. It was 800k, last month wii was undertracked by 400k (assuming NPD is right)

Shipped =/= sold to customers.

Not in the Wii's case in America.

I am confused. Does this site track shipped figures or sold to customers?

@NJ5

Blahblah, blah.



@ESA-Petteri

Wii is the only console you can easily track by shipment figure -1% percent at most. It is currently sold out, and don't be surprised by the low wii numbers in January.

Blahblah, blah.

It tracks sold to customers, but we have information that the Wii sold out in large parts of america.  It would make no sense for, for example, Gamestop to be sold out while Wal-Mart has hundreds of thousands.  So, if there are constant sellouts at what we sample, then that likely holds true for the region as well.  Therefore, if Nintendo shipment figures are significantly above NPD, then we know something is probably wrong with NPD's numbers.  Hence, Brett will wait until shipment figures before doing any adjustments.

Also, a great way to get your point across is by responding 'Blabblah, blah.'  It really makes it sound like you know what you're talking about and are willing to accept the introduction of new evidence, even if it doesn't support your worldview.
