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.
This is nearly impossible for two reasons: 1) Stores were universally closed on Thanksgiving Thursday before 2012. 2) Up until very recent years, Black Friday sales could only be redeemed on or after Black Friday, not before.
