    VGChartz Methodology: Hardware estimates are based on retail sampling and trends in each country, which are then extrapolated to represent the wider region. This usually allows us to produce numbers that end up being within 10% of the actual totals.

    This data is regularly compared to official shipping figures released by console manufacturers and estimated figures from regional trackers with greater market coverage than us. We then update our own estimates to align with these numbers. This can result in frequent changes often in a short period of time, but we think it’s important to prioritize accuracy over consistency.
