Any "error" that represents less than a 5% difference to an "official" source of data is not an "error" as far as I'm concerned - it is within the accepted range of figures that our data point represents. Also, I'd argue in principal that there is no such thing in this area of research as an actual number, however official you want to believe that it is.

In the same way, someone who feels that one game or platform "beat" another because it sold 320,000 units according to our data compared to 310,000 units for the competitor is just being idiotic given data ranges that those two figures represent.
