I like the idea of searching for a better algorithm using more sets of data.  I think we should each come up with an algorithm based on these numbers and find one that we think will work, then the closest one to the results can be tested going forward to see how it predicts.  I'll try to come up with one that I think will be closer to the result.  Will update when I do.

That's the spirit ;)

I will wait for march NPD results before I start twisting the data but I like your idea.

The point values are probably as good of an approximation as any, but I think the retailers need a weight based on average revenue generated for gaming.  I would imagine that Amazon and Walmart count a lot more than Best Buy for instance.  Gamestop may be pretty high on the list as well.  I think Target would be the least impacting.  This might clarify more on the Xbox/Switch ordering.
