So even these numbers don't back up SCEA claims, which go back over a week ago. Doesn't this mean SCEA obviously didn't use Nielsen as the source of their numbers?
I thought the article about SCEA saying BD had sold 1000 more discs was published on Feb 7th (so interview/release was prepared before then). These numbers go through Feb 4th, and would have been the most recent Nielsen numbers SCEA could have had access. These numbers don't show BD with the lead, so are the SCEA numbers are BS?
Oops, nevermind. I went back to check the article again, and it has been updated to specify that NPD is the source of the numbers. So NPD data says that BD had the majority of the SI market share sometime around the 7th. Nielsen data shows that HD-DVD still has the slight SI majority during the same time frame.
Any idea what retailers NPD covers?
