Going by VGChartz

VGChartz isn't a valid source of reliable information, just a heads up. They literally take guesses and often "refine" figures multiple times for a single title when other sources like NPD publish figures. Basically if you want to look at VGChartz thats cool but don't expect any of the information from there to be worth a damn.

My biggest wonder has been, does Microsoft count replaced 360's as a sale?

All of the manufacturers count based on units they ship to retailers, it's impossible for them to track inventory from there given that retailers don't typically allow access to their backend systems.

Kinect vs. Move...I won't guess which will sell more, as I have no interest in Kinect and limited interest in Move. But seeing both in action, Move seems to be a far better, more accurate system, with far more potential.

The Move is a slightly more accurate WiiMotion+ which isn't saying much to be honest. I hope that the PS3s hardware will allow them to do more with it than the Wii allowed for but I won't hold my breath. I will say that Sony seems more interested in motion capability for "core" titles than Microsoft is. In the end I think the pricing and lack of software will kill both of these things and that's probably for the best; I don't want to be dancing around in my living room waving my arms around with Kinect and I sure as hell don't want to fight light saber battles with that Move dildo.
