On the original numbers Pineapple has become the January winner.
In May/June after the big three report their financial results I will take a look at adjusted numbers and declare another winner, as well as in October should another Countdown take place.
Here once again is the 10 week countdown, a feature TWRoO has hosted for the past 3 years. For this year however I will be your new host. This thread can basically be a discussion about what we all expect for the last ten weeks of the year.
This year the final ten weeks run from the week ending 29th October to the week ending 31st December. Going by the calendar this is set 1 day earlier than last year, which was the 10 weeks ending 1nd January. (keep in mind that the "week ending" dates refer to the Saturday, which is when tracking weeks end for America and Europe, but Japan tracking ends on a Sunday, so add 1 day onto the dates below)
Week 1: 23th Oct - 29th Oct
Week 2: 30th Oct - 5th Nov
Week 3: 6th Nov - 12th Nov
Week 4: 13th Nov - 19th Nov
Week 5: 20th Nov - 26th Nov
Week 6: 27th Nov – 3rd Dec
Week 7: 4th Dec - 10th Dec
Week 8: 11th Dec - 17th Dec
Week 9: 18th Dec - 24th Dec
Week 10: 25th Dec – 31st Dec
Here is a table showing important games and events that could affect the weekly sales.
Here are some sales comparisons to help anyone wanting to make a prediction. I've added DS because it's number may be helpful in predicting the 3DS. The first table has been updated 26 October 2011, while the others have been updated on 8 October 2011.
The following show the weekly sales for the last 10 weeks of 2009 and 2010 as well as the 3 week leading up to them in thousands of units.
I want to thank TWRoO for all the work he's done hosting this in the past.
