Any idea why alot of Sony series aren't updated here?

Killzone series has more than 10M sales (old data):
Killzone 1 - 0.94M
Killzone 2 - 3.02M
Killzone 3 - 2.81M
Killzone: SF - 2.1M
Killzone Liberation - 0.9M
Killzone Mercenary - 0.92M

LittleBigPlanet has more than 15M:

LittleBigPlanet 1 - 4.5M

LittleBigPlanet 2 - 3.43M

LittleBigPlanet 3 - 2.7M -> 2.06M (PS4) + 0.64M (PS3)

LittleBigPlanet PSP - 2.61M

LittleBigPlanet Vita - 1.38M

LittleBigPlanet Karting - 0.88M

And this aren't updated numbers.

The same for Resistance, Sly, Infamous, Ratchet, Singstar, MLB: The Show and so on...

And not related to Playstation, I remember seeing some news about the Digimon Cyber Sleuth sales, but there wasn't any update here.
Found it: https://www.vgchartz.com/article/445834/digimon-story-cyber-sleuth-series-ships-15-million-units/
But the game still shows 0.1M sales for PS4 (not updated).

The number is 1.5 million for the series not 15 million and it consists of 2  games and includes digital that VGchartz doesn't track , having said that lots of data info drops away over time because it becomes harder to track and obtain. this trend is even more pronounced with older and smaller selling titles also less time is put into adjustments for older titles because even if it's available it can be hard to find let alone verify or behind a paywall and in our case it is done by volunteers.

I was talking about the SIE/Sony franchises.
That Digimon "sub series" was strange because it came from Bandai Namco itself and it was announced here. You could create Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth series (1.5M units sold, never said 15) and even Digimon Story series (it has alot of games).


But the Sony franchises (with millions of sales) aren't so hard to track.

Just from the data from VGChartz:
LittleBigPlanet - 15.5M+
Killzone - 10M+
Resistance - 7.5M+
Syphon Filter - 7.5M+
Ratchet series wasn't updated (the reboot sold more than 5M copies).
Sly, Infamous, Twisted Metal and MLB: The Show don't appear as a series in the website too.
And there are other problems such has the MotorStorm and Singstar series having the Publisher has "Unknown" and so on.
I was just talking about Sony franchises with more than 5M sales. They aren't so hard to track.

There are still more series (like WipEout and Ape Escape) that are harder to know for sure how much they sold.

Anyway, this site (all the mods, volunteers, members) is doing an amazing job. I am just trying to help.

As a fan of the genre, I really hope Sony will start again strongly supporting GT with GT7.
Publishing the number of players instead of the copies sold for GT Sport is quite a naïve attempt to mask the undeniable fact that on PS4 the franchise underperformed compared to the main versions on all the previous Playstations, including PS3, that sold a lot less than PS4.
Gratz Sony for all the other 1st party games doing so well, but this is one more reason to bring GT back to its past splendour, also considering it's the perfect product to fill the gap between arcade and sim racing.

I know you are trying to help, I mentioned 15 million since that was in the link header and the 1.5 million wasn't specified so I wasn't sure if you knew that.did the 1.5m in the Bandai Namco report show the split between the games ?' The problem with the data is we don't have a clear path toward doing updates even when Sony gives milestones, they are usually displayed above the comments and the sales numbers left the way they were, most likely because the admin like raw numbers  also they quite often have plus next to them.                                                                                                                                                    I would like to see a mechanism that enables people like you to input numbers as long as they are bound and  follow criteria .

One last thing I would love for VGchartz to explore the possibility of sending to Sony a list of all Sony published games on the database asking if Sony could update that list with their info where there are discrepancies and remind them that accurate data benefits  all parties involved.
