yep, its only an estimate
vgcharts also had been within 50k of NPD numbers for the majority of this year, do people understand how hard that would be to do if you were just "guessing"??? I'd say thats pretty good for a "Free" site given the enormous task of trying to track "sold to consumer".

The ones who complain the most about vgchartz never have links showing vgchartz data is "consistently" off more than 5-10% from more established tracking firms, NOPE they just yell, kick and scream vg sucks!, Yet they keep reading AND commenting on supposedly useless numbers. lol Now go back to the short period of time when ps3 was leading on vgcharts estimates for a few months, yep you guessed it, theres much less hate for vgchartz in those threads. YES occasionaly vg is waaay off, but some folks hate them with a passion as if they paid for vgchartz data and expect them to be + or - 1%, lol you'll notice Greenburg never dissed vgchartz until their kinect estimates which obviously points to him having reason/info kinect sold much better otherwise he would of just rolled with it and not said anything.

@visualb, any proof of that, do you know how many unfounded rumors are started on NeoGaf, don't get me wrong it could be true and NeoGaf have certainly exposed alot about of unknown facts about gaming, however for every 1 unkown fact exposed theres hundreds of made up rumors.

Did you miss the article where Aaron Greenburg himself, you know MS's number one PR guy, dismissed VGChartz as crap? It's not PSFan anything but merely people with common logic that know their stat tracking is fictious and not factual.

All of their articles regarding numbers should be marked as rumor. They can post their made up bullshit numbers till their little hearts are content but only ignorant trolls and fanboys take them serious. Oh wait, I see why you back their number tracking.

"You do realize that they say ESTIMATED right."
All the more reason their articles should be listed as a rumor.

@ Jokes.
Actually, VGChartz have often been as much as 20-30% off NPD numbers for the majority of the year. Then, when NPD numbers come out they adjust their figures.

That's why you can't trust these numbers. Their meaningless, and even they don't stand by their weekly figures. When real numbers come out they say "Oh crap. We weren't even close," and then an adjustment is made.

But what can we expect. It's a fan run site that calls around to stores, gets a couple of numbers (or recruits guys who work in retail stores to give them some figures we no way of ensuring accuracy) and then they guess the rest. When their figures aren't even in the ballpark to more reliable figures, they fix them.

Long term there might be some use for VGChartz numbers but short term numbers like these are almost always so far off it's not even funny.

We need to stop approving these fake numbers. In encourage everyone to click on the VGChartz link below "Read full story" and rank the quality of this article. Eventually, if enough do this the quality filter on N4G will start weeding out these articles out from the real news.

estimates.vs real numbers...
I think the main issue people have with this site is most likely the nature of the person who created it. Rather than being a more neutral type of gamer he has been blacklisted as a 360 fanboy.

True or false, we all should simply take the results provided with a grain of salt. Obviously we all get a little bit giddy when numbers come out and sites like VGCharts are jumping the gun with estimated numbers to thwart us.

When the real ones are released we then slam VGC for being wrong instead of seeing it for what it is. An estimation of what 'could' be or close to it. I dont play the numbers game but I will admit that I sneak a peak on NPD and Media Create just to see what sales trends are happening.

We can argue about this night and day but we are also all guilty of looking at them.
JokesOnYou  +   1247d ago
Actually darthv72,
I was curious with all the talk about vgchartz and I like to decipher fact from opinion so I googled the info for myself.

This is the thread where he was banned because apparently some members accused him of "using" neogaf to get hits for his site in media create threads, he was warned not to "spam" his site anymore, then consequently banned by a mod named Amir0x after linking his site again in another post. I saw no mention of him being a 360fanboy actual he was accused of always "inflating" wii software sales and underestimated the others. He explained himself well http://www.neogaf.com/forum... and the only reason I could tell he was ultimately banned is because many didn't like his attitude and of course mods believe him to have an agenda to promote his site using neogaf, which I dont doubt was his key motive.
http://www.neogaf.com/forum...

Some major business's like Forbes, Fortune, The New York Post, The New York Times and of course some gaming sites have qouted vgchartz #'s because again if you use them only for what they are, an estimate they are generally reliable for sales trends. Gamesutra actually did an analysis of vgchartz and although they pointed out a few occasions that vgchartz was totally inaccurate they also stated:
"Most of the time, they are quite close compared to the worldwide charts. That's because VGChartz is - like services such as The SimExchange."
And again this seems to be a very fair unbiased analysis of vg that concluded with: "if I was a writer or analyst trying to extrapolate significant information from the resource, especially regarding those titles which don't chart regularly, given the major discrepancies with other figures shown here, I would not recommend it."
http://www.gamasutra.com/ph...

Its easy for their detractors to use the relatively few occasions when their data has been waaay off to say the site is terrible at tracking sales data, but they ignore the other more consistent times when the data is withing 10-15% of more reliable *paid firms, much like Kobe or Jordan haters use their poor games as a evidence to downplay all their accomplishments.

I welcome any comparison charts showing vg sales with huge discrepencies from npd for a consistent time frame, all I was able to find were a few articles here and there saying vgchartz estimate for a few individual software titles showed a large discrepency. I don't particularly care about the site or who owns it but after years of vgchartz being dedicated to at least "trying" to provide sales data, and from my own knowledge being close to NPD more often than not, again for those of us who like to have an idea what the latest sales trends are, I appreciate their efforts, those who hate them should just ignore vg threads.

well, if the story behind it is true
and the guy who started VGChartz was a notorious 360 fanboy banned from NeoGaf for constantly posting fake sales numbers that were inflated for 360 and deflated for PS3

I'd say, yeah, VGCharts has no say, its just a "360 fanboys wet dream" sales site...

"oh and I do remember Vgchartz giving big PS3 sales that were higher then the actual ones. Dint see you complain then."

As if gamers needed any more examples of the ridiculous fanboy lies the Xbox fan who runs vgchartz. The 'high PS3 sales' one is hilarious.

Vgchartz had been repeatedly getting caught making laughably low PS3 sales numbers stories. Even Xbox fans were balking at how far the kid running the site was lying about PS3 sales.

So the little punk immediately put out some new sales numbers that ridiculously over counted that week's or month's PS3 sales and then immediately started babbling about "Look! This proves I'm not just some little kid Xbox fan!"

What a joke.

disagree all you want, its quite self evident considering the way VGCharts works is by calling up some local gamestores and using that info to guess all the sales...

thats why most of the time VGChartz is filed under rumor...because thats all it is , a random assed guess

That is not saying too much! Considering how much marketing might has been put behind kinects from the offset. 500 million dollars of marketing might, sure there are those who would argue that that's for a year of exposure, but realise that move has been able to accomplish this at a fraction of the price tag, without the Ellen Degeneros's, Ophra Winfrey's of the media to promote it. I think credit should be given where it's due.

If you like kinects game on! But someone likes the competition product don't sh#t on it, or discount it, because you may not like it! Believe me there is someone out that thinks differently.

In the years i've been coming to this site. The one thing I can say is Sony fanboys will say yea for VGChartz when it reports numbers they like.

To the same note I don't see too many 360 fanboys doing the same thing but there are a few. I guess its not so obvious on this site because there are more pro Sony people on this site.

My point is get over it, its only an estimate. If the same article was about the move I doubt any of these same people would be saying the same thing. Don't believe me search all previous articles with VGChartz and Sony doing well, look at many of the same people putting it down now. You will see they are giving a big thumbs up to VGChartz....

VGChartz is not a 360 fan site, because throughout the history and again check articles on this site, 360 numbers didn't always look good. There have been many positive PS3 numbers reported. On top of that VGChartz was challenging NPD at one point, so if they are so much of 360 fanboys why would they challenge, saying they are as accurate for cheaper?

I guess its silly writing this because I don't expect many people here to have the IQ to comprehend what I was talking about in the slightest bit, but to those that do we see the hypocrisy in many of the comments.

You have to know that MS is still losing money from Kinect with this ad campaign, so right now they are still trying to make the money back, and need to sell more units then the move just to break even

No one has ever called out VGC when they under track or over track. A Sure sign of VGC not being able to track Kinect sales is proven by Microsoft responding to the numbers. And they must be severely under tracked for PR to respond by pocking fun of group no one bothered before one way or the other.

(sigh)
So if the article said on 100,000 units were sold, then would this article be rumor or would the Sony fannies claim a win?

N4G is loosing it's reliability as an unbiased gaming web site with all this unlimited fanboy stupidity. It makes it hard to navigate the site without feeling overwhelmed with so much negativity. I really do hope some of you fan boys are getting a check from Sony or MS for your unwavering loyalty to a toy. Because that's all these systems are...high priced...high tech toys. Like a super speak and spell. When the official numbers drop and they are in the millions I wonder what will be the excuse then...maybe that's shipped not sold, or they gave most of those away, or my personal favorite "that's not in Japan though"....LOL!!! Most of you need girlfriends seriously.

I thought by now vgchartz`s articles had to low standards for N4g, but apparently I was wrong.
People should stop commenting and posting articles from a fake video-game site.
Ooooops I commented it.....BUT then again were my reasons not valid? :)
