Where do you get your stats?
#1
Where can I find trusted statistics on how the PS3/XBox360/Wii sold in 2008? I'm sure someone from this site did an article on that, but I want to know where they got their statistics. I trust this site, but where do you find the "Official" numbers when you write about them? Thanks

I don't mean to sound ignorant, but what does "npd" stand for?

How accurate is vgchartz? I pretty much use that site exclusivly when referencing sales numbers. I may have to change though.

LOL I never really thought they were that bad, but I can no longer use them as a source. Thanks

accord 4 me: Good to know, thanks. Like JaktheDexter, I've always just gone to vgcharts.com. So, I followed the npd link you provided, and I don't know where to go on their site to get to the desired sales stats. Or, do we have to go to other sites that receive npd stats? Any suggestions? I mean, I'd like to track the stats at least monthly. I read the arstechnica piece. So where do you get your monthly or even weekly stats?
