You're right, there isn't one yet. We'll be adding a new index page to display all of the historical hardware charts - it's on the to-do list. I'm sure we can display it by region too (heck we actually track hardware for more places than we show, such as smaller European countries, so maybe we can display some of those too).

That sounds awesome! Final question, I promise. The US pre-order charts, are they done? I know a lot of people found them less exciting, but I liked to use them to gauge hype for titles and track pre-order trends, but I recognize they are software related and probably weren't the most accurate numbers either.

The US pre-orders are done for now. Buuuuut it's possible we may bring them back. I need to talk to Talon about how we might go about it, and it would likely just be a ranking without any sales estimates, but it's on the back-burner for now because he's so busy with all these other things.

Would you be eager to adjust historical software sales data? 

Nope, there's no point going back and adjusting our retail estimates now that we're moving to official shipments for software sales. If the total for a game is out for a fact then it will be corrected when one of us uploads the official figure anyway.
