Why everyone is trying to say XBOX and PS3 is a statistical tie.??? i mean 50k is not that much meager either.. its 1.5 million dollar sales for PS3. :$ and we can also say maybe PS3 had 100k lead and NPD is showing it less.. it should be taken as +/-25k for each console instead of only +25k for XBOX and -25k for PS3 to make it a tie. :$..
i think XBOX has even won by 900 units.. it was something like 287.1k and 288k.. So it was a win for XBOX so this is a win for PS3
No... that would also be a statistical tie. They would both be statistical ties.
Winning is winning.
Or is there a rule now on how many sales it takes for it to automatically be a "statistical tie"?
Yes. There is a rule on that.
It's called the margin of error.
It's a statistical rule... for statistics. Which these numbers are.
For it to not automatically be a statistical tie the two numbers have to be far enough apart from each other to not be within each others "margins of error."
