    reask: There are no reliable figures for Europe (available to the public anyway). For the US use NPD figures, for Japan use Media Create numbers.

    I can make up some figures for you if you like… I’m more accurate than VGChartz: Prediction Competition (VGC is “Banned Site LOL”)

    …and that’s one of their better performances, they’re usually miles out. I see no point in putting any stock in figures which are clearly pulled out of someone’s arse. Especially their Euro numbers.
