    Anyone know a good source of data for total games sold? There's a couple games that I'd be interested to hear how well they sold. Or how poorly, more the point. [​IMG]

    No, no one publishes real figures. The sales data that is published isn't accurate because it excludes some major retailers like WalMart

    This is one of a few organizations who poll retailers for sales data. The problem, as Jeff mentioned, is they only poll participating retailers. Many important retailers are left out which has a strong effect on the results.
