You do realize that week ending January 4th would technically be the 1st week of 2014, not the 53rd week of 2013. It's not fair to compare 1 week of 2014 to 2 weeks for previous years

Ps4 at 54% without japan...................

And no stock. Expect to see 250k+ in coming weeks while the others struggle

Most are way down yoy though this years dates the 5th to the 11th is almost a week after last years the 30th to the 6th with only two days of overlap so that probably increased the drop a bit.


Wonktonodi (on 22 January 2014)

actually it should be the 30th to the 5th for last year so only one day of overlap and it looks like there have been some minor adjustments from when you collected the data 3DS 457,821 (-38%) 28,164,943 PS3 383,718 (-25%) 73,741,536 X360 227,527 (-44%) 75,094,640 PSP 219,245 (+7%) 77,670,793 WiiU 123,651 (-39%) 2,370,867 Wii 118,654 (-45%) 98,793,113 PSV 90,675 (-36%) 4,246,714 DS 40,901 (-55%) 153,037,026

Those drops! PS4 and Xbone had better see increases or this year is going to be beyond awful.


Wonktonodi (on 22 January 2014)

the drops are bad though the lack of overlap in the dates makes it even worse.
Last year the 6th through the 12th
3DS 196,326 (-57%) 28,361,269
PS3 189,612 (-51%) 73,931,148
X360 142,023 (-38%) 75,236,663
PSP 121,067 (-45%) 77,791,860
Wii 62,557 (-47%) 98,855,670
WiiU 48,387 (-61%) 2,419,254
PSV 41,165 (-55%) 4,287,879
DS 24,913 (-39%) 153,061

so quite a bit less than the week it's currently being compared to.

Why isn't this used as 2013 data? Why is there only 1 week of data up for 2014 when VGC has 2 weeks?
