Forums - Gaming Discussion - Why do Vgchartz not fix their game sale figures?

Same goes for Titanfall which sold over 1 million retail for March NPD but VGChartz has it at 800k 



Around the Network

Another example and I'm still seeing people comment on this is that The Last of Us was said to have sold 6 million copies as of March but this site has it at selling 4.55 million copies as of June.

That's also obviously undertracked by at least half a million I bet.



First lets get hardware numbers fixed, then we can worry about software.



Won bet with t3mporary_126 - I correctly predicted that the Wii U's LTD at the end of 2014 would be closer to 9 million than 10 million. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6673287

Another one here Tales of Xillia 2, they shipped, sold whichever 500,000 copies in Japan by March 2013 which is about half a year after the game came out but this site says it's only sold 450,000 copies.

I don't have a link but according to Media Create Metal Gear Solid 4 had sold 930,000 copies in Japan as of the end of 2012 but has only sold 830,000 copies as of present according to this site. That game's surely over 6 million.

Before you go any further, read This from ioi

and read his answers to forum members in This thread

Then, read This - which will help put things in context.

For the bolded, it's important that you understand the difference between shipped or sold - if you don't know whether a figure represents shipped or sold, then don't quote it. It's already been explained in this thread.

(Edit to add) - This post is probably most relevant to this thread, if you don't have the time to go through all the reading matter.
