Why so dodgy on Titanfall sales?

I can't seem to get a straight answer, how well did Titanfall sell on the Xbox One?

EA launched Titanfall in March, and while it was the best-selling game that month as rated by the NPD, EA didn't provide sales numbers in its report. EA says it is the No. 1 publisher on Xbox One and PS4 in the western world, led by sales of Titanfall, Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, Need for Speed Rivals and Madden NFL 25. Mobile revenue generated $460 million (non-GAAP) in fiscal year 2014, setting a "new record" within the company.

Update: EA sold 925,000 copies of Titanfall on Xbox One and PC during the quarter, COO Peter Moore announced during EA's investor call, citing numbers from NPD. The Xbox 360 version is "off to a great start as well," Moore said.

Why are we lumping the numbers when you as a company easily have the data?

Was it worth the price tag of being an Xbox "exclusive"?

I had an Xbox One before (it wouldn't give me any image even after going back to GameStop and them setting it up to help, no dice) and I have been debating getting one again but as I already have a PlayStation 4 right now it's hard for me to justify getting a system that is so similar right now.

The success of exclusives is important to me as is signals strong IPs and/or exclusives will come to the system.

Call of Duty Ghosts is "the number one selling game on next gen consoles, life to date", he told investors during a

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/pc-and-xbox-one-exclusive-titanfall-is-the-top-selling-us-game-for-march/1100-6419066/

After one month of sales, it is currently the second-highest selling game for the Xbox One." NPD did not specify the current top-selling Xbox One game, but given past performance, that crown likely goes to Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Just the Xbone version is the 2nd best selling game on next gen consoles.

Its selling better than Infamous Second Son in PS4. So I consider it a victory for MS.

Sales have been dismal per EA expectations. They have been quoted as saying that Titanfall should have been an exclusive for PS4 instead as it would have been able to be the game they wanted to make without the limitations set by the Xbox One hardware.
