Official data. 



 


Oh you mean when one of 'em releases sales data? vgchartz serves it's purpose and if it can be reasonably close in it's estimates then that's even better. Maybe you should try to contribute in a constructive way to the numbers on this site instead of complaining about the numbers being off.

 

Check my thread / post history. I like to contribute with data and have done so in the past. 

What I'm doing here is pointing out that the VGChartz data does not match up with known official data.

From Who ?, Activision, and Microsoft, Stopped of Giving any Official data.

 

From the companies that provide it. 

As I said above, all I'm saying is that VGChartz data does not line up with official KNOWN data. Therefore this thread title may not be correct at all. 

I'd rather we have an official source rather than one which we know is wrong to a degree. 

 

If anything, me being the only person in this thread to point this out can at least alert the mods or ioi to take a look at the tracking or estimating etc... to try and work out why they arrived at a higher number and improve their methodology for future tracking. 

After all, their methodology page even says-

All data is regularly checked against manufacturer shipments and data released publicly from other tracking firms to ensure accuracy.

So?  ask nintendo fans today how they liked the N64 and the Gamecube and their games? Ask Xbox owners who started with the first one how they liked the original Xbox? they will tell you those are all better than the 360 and Wii, fact



In the end that doesn't matter because when one side is winning that you clearly don't like you will voice out reason.



So What you are Saying ? , That i Cannot enjoy Fallout, Skyrim, The Witcher , Project Cars, Assasin's Creed, Hitman, Grand Theft Auto, Borderlands, Bio Shock, and a Bunch of Other Franchises only Because my Favorite franchises are Japanese Franchises ?, Have something that is "Favorite" does not means that you dont like the Other things, just Means that you like this other more.

Only Because i like More Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Tekken, does not Means that i Cannot Enjoy other Franchises, or that i Hate the other franchises, Seems that i Dont like How Microsoft, in 15 Years of Console Market, did not made more than Halo, and Forza, Seems that if i Disagree with "Not Making New IP", Means that I'm a "Weeabo", and a "Sony Fanboy", Microsoft, does not Create IPS, because of that they are not the Company to Lead the Industrie, they care more about the Windows than Xbox, and Despite in a How Good position Xbox, would be, Microsoft, would do the same.

And I'm Sure that the DreamCast, the Original Xbox, and the Gamecube, had a Lot of good games even with Playstation 2's Dominance, same with the Playstation 1, do you Think that the NIntendo 64, Players, Were Worried while Playing the 007'S Game ?, and the Players from Sega, that Were Playing one of the Best JRPG Out there ?.

If Nintendo, takes the Lead i can see a lot of Their games that is Japanese Only, Going for the West Really Faster, But i Can also see a More Japanese Appeal Policy.

IF Playstation, is on the Lead i can see Preety Much Each Genre Doing so well that Everyone can auto-sustain, and of Course Bunch of New Ips Made by Sony, or Published by Sony, i Can see a More Global Appeal Policy, with this Monopoly.

 

If Xbox, is on the Lead, so i See Microsoft, Trying to Sell more Halo, and Forza, and Maybe Buying a Multiplataform's Big hit, and Trying to Make Milk from a Rock, also a Big "USA Only" Policy, they would focus more on Online Content and would make a Shooter Multiplayer after another.

If Microsoft, Suports something like EA Acess, There also would be a "Acess" from each Developer, and this Would be Terrible for the Industrie because the developers would focus more on DLC, than on the Game It-self, and you would be Paying More than 60US$ Per Month to Play games that you Do Not Own.
