360 Numbers don't add up!

[quote][b]Monty said:[/b] Really? Because I don't think so. All I'm doing in this thread is responding to people that are answering me... as I stated above some time ago. If you're tired of it, stop posting in the thread. It takes two to debate an issue. The reality is that I've brought up several great points and you guys are bending over backwards for well over 100 posts trying to prove...

[quote][b]Monty said:[/b] I'm not even sure what to say anymore... everytime I read something in this thread that makes me shake my head and laugh, I read one thing even funnier. I think the claim that vgcharts is more accurate than the NPD might now be my all time favorite! It's getting to the point where I'm now starting to think you guys are just screwing with me and you don't really...

[quote][b]Monty said:[/b] @TalonMan - Once again, I'm sorry my pointing out that vgcharts was 400k in NA didn't meet your standards of being noteworthy. I'm still confused as to how you continue to "rely" on vgcharts although it is nearly a half a million off in a very easy to track area? I guess your just one of those people that swallow's everything, questions nothing, and is fine if...

[quote][b]Monty said:[/b] So, let me get this straight now... most of you are agreeing with me that vgcharts is off by around 400k in North America, but now you're saying that by pointing it out I was "petty" and "ridiculous"? I must admit that this is entertaining, to say the least. I'm curious about a few things, though: First off, at what point should I have mentioned it, if 400k...

[quote][b]Monty said:[/b] Come on... keep up with the debate here! I've answered this a few times already. Initially we knew the US numbers were 4.9 million in the US through Dec 25th using NPD data. I ESTIMATED an extra 200k for the last week of the year, making the US total 5.1 million. NPD confirmed the 5.1 million number the other day. In a link I have now posted TWICE they showed...

[quote][b]Monty said:[/b] [b]NoIdea said:[/b] Are you kidding? About what? About the 200k? I cited it several times in this thread... it was based off of NPD numbers and avg sold per week in the US. The average was 250k, but I took it down because the 25th isn't a shopping day. In the end, I was right... yet again. I was citing 4.9 million + 200k for the final week, which = 5.1 million in...

[quote][b]Monty said:[/b] Apparently we broke the forum again as I can't view the last posts in the 360 thread. Anyhow, here's my last post: Some of you are citing the 8 days worth of sales in Canada (Nov 22nd 2005 - Nov 30th 2005) as proof that Canada sells 10% of the US. However, I really believe that an 8 day period of sales during a very shortage filled launch is hardly conclusive...

...time and again, you keep changing your stance Monty - and then you wonder why your numbers don't add up?!?!? Yesterday - you were in agreement that 4.9 million consoles were sold in the US. Today, you post a link to an analyst's "estimate" and now claim that 5.1 million were sold. That's a 200k unit descrepancy - about half the total that was probably sold in all of CANADA!!!! ...

The reason why you aren't getting the 'fair shake' you feel you deserve, is because you keep using inflated speculation as your argument - speculation that has no basis other than your own personal feelings. Here are two examples: 1) You believe 'other' NA sales equal 20% of US sales - it's already been shown to you that during the initial launch, only [i]10%[/i] actually sold (325k in NA -...

When that article states '325,900 were sold south of the border', they are referring to the US (remember, this is a [i]Canadian[/i] article). There is no way in hell that 325,900 consoles were sold in Mexico during November - I'd be shocked if Mexico even came close to matching the 32k that were sold in Canada... ...and as has already been mentioned, 32k is roughly 10% of 325k, which is...

[quote][b]Monty said:[/b] Canada and Mexico have a population of just under 150 million. 50% of the US. The US and Canada aren't the only countries in NA... learn your geography! 300k Xbox 360's were sold in Canada and Mexico in Nov and Dec 05. How many do you think were sold in the rest of the 12 months? Zero? Even if it was merely 1 million Xbox 360's sold in these parts, that still...
