NPD Says No Sale Numbers For You!
So how do we go about getting sales data now? We don't. It's all up to Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo to decide whether or not they'll want to supply the numbers monthly, and we don't see that happening. In order to obtain the numbers legitimately, you'll have to pay NPD a hefty sum of money...we're talking five-digit sums. We may still see quarterly numbers, but that's about it. All in all, this is certainly a disappointing revelation. Hopefully, a solution can be found.
And if anybody cites either one of the videogame charts websites as a solution, I will see to it that you be arrested by the CIA.
