    Word up. As some of you may have spotted, I've just taken down the GamesIndustry.biz editorial posted over the weekend ("Hitting the Brakes"). GI is currently looking into some issues with the figures, and will have more to report soon.

    I wonder if we'll finally find out if Chart Track screwed up their figures or not... they've supposedly confirmed them to other outlets though.

    What figures are the problem? The ones claiming the 360 has outsold the Wii this year?

    Cheers PT. I thought at the time I read the EG article that surely we'd have heard much more about this if it were the case. It'll be interesting to see what it says when the article goes back up.

    There's been a lot of talk about it in sales geek circles, with Chart Track insisting that Game published the correct figures.

    The question now is if they collected the right figures. :)
