We are a bit low even for the lower possible range. I was using information from Benji to help with US figures for May, and he ended up being too low. I am gonna do some minor adjustments, so we are a tiny bit above 400,000 for May.
I'm not even sure this is the right place to talk about it, but i'd like to see a different kind of VGChartz.
I used to get mad at those numbers for how "wrong" they were back in the day and still are, now i'm better than this, and i don't really care, though i must say i love what you guys did for software.
A collection of official numbers from every kind of source, so whenever someone is curios about the numbers, example someone wonder how much The Witcher 3 has sold, can go to VGChartz and maybe he can see the accurate numbers.
Just wonder, don't you think that could be the way for hardware too? For example last month we got concrete numbers from Pachter, those numbers would have been in the main page as "last update for USA numbers".
Maybe not only official numbers but also the range we can get from the ERA predictions, example we can know that in a month Switch has sold between 250k and 300k, or that PS4 is under 180k ecc
There would also be update for Japan numbers every weeks (that's an easy one), and for other markets like EU and the rest of the world, those update would be more rare but we surely get it some times.
And maybe a worldwide thing in general, using official numbers from Sony and Nintendo, while Microsoft... eh we'll think about something for this one.
In general, what i'm saying, i think i would love to have VGChartz as an encyclopedia of official numbers (some times leaks) for hardware and software, instead of having those estimate with a way too high margin of error...
Those numbers you guys get from VGChartz could still be used as a way to make predictions, kinda like Benji does for the numbers he get from his work.
I'd really love talk about that, if not now in the future (cause i'm kinda busy today lol).
2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 11m, XB1 4m
In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, 9m PS4 and 3m XB1, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.
