Sorry for the delay in the hardware figures. With the shortages it has been a bit harder to track figures, plus I wanted to wait for Famitsu figures to release. That is why I posted two weeks of hardware figures at once. Be sure to share this article if you want to help the website out.

On the main page, you only have the data for one week, will you publish the two weeks on the main page too?
Thank vou.

Why the VG does not count in South American? Because Nintendo's Web Site has this information.

Yes they do count South America, it is part of the “America's”

Ok I guess 60 millions by the end of July (or even June)

Wouldn't that require over 350k a week? Even without stock issues that would seem quite bold. The end of August seems more likely to me.

I take that back after the NPD adjustments. You were on point.
