Well, I don't think that it's quite accurate, mainly because the dates that those numbers came out on have to be taken into account. The US figure is only for January, and the article w/ the Japan figure is dated January 24th... I have no idea about the others though.
I'm guessing that the 700k figure that's floating around is probably closer to reality as of now :/
@produner (formerly proudner?) Yeah, fair enough. I was just noticing the typical startup of another childish console (in this case Xbox) bashing session, so I figured I'd put my 2 cents in.
Something else that needs to be taken into account is how much the number dropped from week to week. IIRC, we didn't have the actual numbers but the reports were that its sales dropped over 50% after its first week on multiple console. Then that number dropped another 50% after another week.
I may be wrong on this, but I remember several places where I saw "DmC sales drop 50-75%" or something...
