Worth noting is that VGC's numbers for NA are higher for the week because VGC is also reporting Canada, which this 830k number does not include.

Thanks for the info! I'm glad it did better. I just cannot remember how it did before, even tho I remember it doing pretty good. And this doesnt include cyber monday either, which should help December numbers, right?

Thanks Barkley, that's gives a great look at how it did this year. It did very good. Do those other years include cyber monday, or would that have been totally separate? I'm guessing separate. Thanks for the numbers, sir. Greatly appreciated.
