Table 1 and table 5 do not match at all in 2013 sales data

3DS is now selling better on a weekly basis YoY. That $80 in fall 2011 had it's effect, and now we can expect 3DS sales to grow. I wonder how much of a boost Pokemon alone will give.

PS3 has just passed X360. Now I'm wondering whether PS3's column will appear at the middle of the chart in the site's home page.

PS3 and 360 down the same YOY, not bad for the console in its 8th year. Seems to me that my 30% down prediction will come true for both.
