Agreed.

@zorg1000

Skew the numbers in any way that could help the PS4 win.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

True 2015 only had 51 weeks

 

LOL sorry Rick but a comparison of a full year is still going to be equal

well i'm not talking about a full year, but as of now if someone is judging  this years sales, he's gonna think well why did switch dominate in JAN so much, and its because of the extra week, and the only reason why switch is ahead at the moment.

Don't you realize that 2018 is 53 weeks long?
