They don't get data from WalMart. They extrapolate to get their numbers (just like VGC does) since they do not have full market data (NPD has ~50% iirc).

So first VGC article estimated 360 to be around 481,000 which was way overtracked. If we divide this by the 4 weeks of January, then it is 25,000 per week. Which means that 360 was third behind Wii and PS3 in every week world wide.

It looks like 360 is selling 20-30 K more than the PS3, and not double as per vgchartz latest numbers including this month.

where the hell is 481000,look back what etomaz replyed man



Thank you.

After adjustments VGC estimated:

360 - 403k
DS - 376k
Wii - 372k
PS3 - 277k
PSP - 83k
PS2 - 46k

The initial estimates for 360 were 481,000 then it was adjusted down a couple of days ago to  403,000 which means that 360 was third behind Wii and PS3 all january. I dont see why would this change this month, I see even more overtacking for 360 in next NPD based on VGC having 360 selling double what PS3 and Wii are selling.

BS , the only reason Ps3 outsold 360 in January was because Japan buys more after holidays and in Spain The gifts are open day 6 January.

February will be owned by 360 and even Last January Months were EVEN AFTER ADJUSTMENTS and its only overtracked by 20K and Ps3 is overtracked aswell by at least 10K so your argument sucks so please go HOME.
