NPD Group corrects November 2014 sales report after data inaccuracies
The NPD Group have issued a revised sales chart for November after they “discovered a minor issue with the data.”
While the impact of this has reportedly been minimal, it has shifted the rankings for the month – with Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Far Cry 4 climbing to fifth and sixth, whereas Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire fall to seventh and eighth place respectively.
“After The NPD Group released the November 2014 video games sales report, we discovered a minor issue with the data,” executive director David Riley shared in explaining the revised report.
“While the overall impact is minimal, we want to provide you with the most accurate data possible (see the attached). For overall video games hardware and video games software, the impact is no more than +/- 1% (rounded). Video games accessories were not impacted.
“For the Top 10 software titles, there were shifts in ranks of some titles, but no title has been pushed out from the Top 10 we released on Dec. 11.”
