Keyword Planner and Keyword Tool Not Even Close

Hi I know there has been one post on this before, but it didn't really answer my question.

 

When querying for keyword ave monthly searches in the new Keyword Planner, the results are significantly (not even close) LOWER than what displayed in the old Keyword Tool.

 

Once keyword phrase returned over 300,000 ave. monthly searches in the old keyword tool, but is now only returning 240 (Not 240,000 - 240) in the new Keyword Planner.  Another set of keywords used to display 12,000, but now only returns 300 ave. monthly searches.  

 

- I kept all the previous keyword tool search volumes in an old file, they were all global searches

- Same settings (where applicable) 

 

How can the results be so different?

The new keyword planner is only showing the search statistics of exact match type keywords unlike the old keyword tool which showed traffic for broad match type.
