I did Sales Analysis for a living. I would have been fired had I used VGCharts "fake magical numbers" just FYI.
Can you elaborate on why it is considered "fake magical numbers?".

At least within the US, retail POS data is tracked and reported by key retailers, widely available to anyone who has an account with services such as Nielsen or NPD.

The overwhelming majority of domestic retail sales for media goods like DVDs, games and CDs is generated by a small number of key retailers.
