Interesting

So this is 2m sold through (in homes) by Monday .

Overtracked here? lol. I think not.


And people thought you only posted negative news!

well VGCz has xbone at 1,523,976 after two weeks of data which i believe is 9 days of data. so i guess 476k this week +2 days of the following week.  sounds like VGCz data is pretty good as that sounds reasonable.

 

edited: like a n00b i used the wrong numbers.

1,524m for 9 days.

VGC needs more 1 week and two days of data... a new shipment happened to Xbone this weekend (Dec 6th) so Amazing and others retails got stock again.

How much did 360 sell?

Also, I hope neither of the consoles taper off. Way it's going, this gen is probably gonna be most record-breaking yet.
