It would've been nice to have the time it took the first game to reach the same sales milestone, in the report.

I'm guessing it took about 15-16 weeks, so like, 4 months. So this game sold 2 million in 7 weeks retail versus 16 weeks. So it's selling ... 56% faster? My math could be off

If it's 7 vs. 16 weeks, that's nearly 130% faster.
