Any plans to improve/change VGChartz in the near future? Or will it be status quo for the foreseeable future?

Any specific examples? I don't know of any reason why anything would have changed - same data and same methods we have been using for 3-4 years now.

Without checking I have a good one...

DS lifetime sales as of end of 2012: 153,707,490
DS shipped data as of end of 2012: 153.67m 

In this case it is not I can't believe in VGC data because this scenario is impossible.

 There are more cases not too obvious like that... 2+ million on shelves for 360 at the same perid is hard to believe... and there are a lot of software with odd numbers too.

Yes, sorry we missed that 0.02% error

that's good to hear :) I am mainly here for the sales chartz and not really because of the forum...

so, do you have any plans about tracking digital sales in the future (if that's possible)?

I understand that... the error is small. The issue is any other 0.02% error will not make the number not reliable but this specific 0.02% error makes the number not reliable because it is impossible. I think this kind of error is more important than a 10% error in others numbers.

I don't know if you understood what I'm trying to say... I'm having trouble with the language know to give you a better explanation.

I know what you are trying to say that the number is clearly wrong - there's no way more can be sold than have been made. I'm not disagreeing with that but it is still a tiny margin of error, almost to the point of not worrying about making an adjustment (which would just be a ~0.03% decrease across the board) unless you are especially bothered about it.

No, it's fine. I just wanted to share my point .

But you are currently gone. So what does that tell us?

It would be a great loss, there are some great people here. I guess you would just move on if it happened, not much you could do if it happened.
