Commence GAF meltdown in 5... 4... 3...

- removal of monthly hardware unit sales figures
- a shift in the Top 10 software from sku level with unit sales for the Top 5, to Top 10 software at the title level with no unit sales

Silver lining:

As per The NPD Group's policy, NPD hardware and software subscribers are permitted to release sales figures for their respective products - a practice that NPD will continue to support.

OMG, it's like the UK charts from a few years ago, except we at least got the top 40.

Exactly. It's very disappointing that I won't be able to know if I'm winning gaming each month :(

Of course NPD is giving numbers to their subscribers.

Why would they subscribe otherwise?

Not to give any credit to ioi, but by now we know they are not entirely made up (They are usually within 10% of NPD, would be pretty awesome if he guessed it right all year though, man should go to the casino then)

1. People are too cheap to pony up on a regular basis for such an expensive subscription.
2. GAF is a public forum, and supposedly only the related parties may announce their own numbers publicly.
