Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday: It became the best-selling Nintendo console in U.S. history for that five-day period.
people really need to see the PR spin here, it's comparing those days only, so comparing to wii makes no sense. wii could have sold 500k Wednesday and 300k Thursday, and probably completely sold out the other days.
The thing is Thursday before Black Friday to the end of Cyber Monday been 5 days Is for sure a bigger sales period than the 800k that was done Sunday before to the Saturday after to the extent that the Sunday-Wednesday of the Wii tracking likely accounts for very little of the Wii's 800K, When you combine this along with knowing it's up 115% from the same 5 days in 2017 it already takes it above 800k for the same 5 day period. That you can't ignore.
