i just don't see it with the shortages,  if nintendo said  sold through 10 million as of the DEC 10th. NPD tracks tell the of 26 of november till the 30 of december. i could be easily wrong, but at best they sold 3.5 million in December, but we would have deduct 9 days of sales WW, and december is only good till the 25th so that would put them at 12 million-12.5 million sold through, they wouldn't have any shortages if they shipped 14 million.

Point that they maybe shipped 7-8m in Q4 doesnt mean that shortages are totally over, shortages means that demand is higher than what Nintendo can produce and shipped, you don't have exact number that proves that, and this kind of strong shortages only exist in Japan. Sold through and shipped number are not same thing.

my point is there is evidence suggesting they didn't, doesn't mean its fact, and no need to get defensive over it.of course i know the difference between shipped and sold through.
