    NPD is a major player company in marketing research. And why Jose stated "we'll have to wait for NPD's report" to verify whether the sales claims by Sony are accurate.
  8. `The NPD Group, Inc.(formerly National Purchase Diary)` is a leading global market research company founded in 1967 and provides consumer and retail information to manufacturers and retailers. Using actual sales data from retailers and distributors as well as consumer-reported purchasing behavior, NPD offers consumer panel and retail sales tracking services, special reports, modeling and analytics, and custom research.
