What? Nintendo isn't going to do the PR for Sony and Microsoft. This is how it always works: NPD gives the data to the companies early and lets them release a PR statement before the full public report is out. If Sony and Microsoft want to announce anything, they're free to do so. Otherwise, the public report is out this afternoon.

Ok then. I was saying that line from NPD specifically though, not all the news from Nintendo itself. But if you explain me is because that line from NPD will be today in the public report, then ok, my apologies.

But i still don't like that NPD talks about same gen systems, and that they only say Switch is ahead when it benefits Switch but they don't say the same when it falls behind again.

Well, NPD is a for-profit organization, and they get their revenue from the businesses who are subscribed to their reports. They're not going to loudly announce negative news about their own customers. I doubt that they'll announce it when Xbox One falls behind Xbox 360 next month either.

NPD DIDNT... They only provided the data, businesswire the website linked in the OP actually wrote the article

No, that likely is something that NPD wrote. They said something similar in the report for December 2017.
