Switch is going strong this month

Would everyone be fine with that?

Yes, with the weird Sony & Amazon situation, its basically impossible to make any sort of correlation between Amazon rankings & NPD results.

When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

I've been thinking of some changes for the Amazon threads. Namely, having fewer of them. I was thinking about possibly trying seasonal/quarterly threads starting next month (which would be the start of summer/Q3). This would give me more leeway in creating threads, as I wouldn't have to scramble to make one every month on the first. I'm getting more and more forgetful about getting the threads up because of how much other stuff I have going on these days.

If I did move to a seasonal/quarterly format, I would probably discontinue logging in the weekly rankings and just focus on monthly and yearly rankings. The Amazon hardware rankings in general have lost the predictive power they once had, with the Switch clearly dominating on the site despite having come in second in actual sales for the past several months, meaning the Amazon rankings are more of a curiosity/interest thing now than something with utilitarian value in determining the relative NPD hardware rankings. As such, logging in minutiae like the weekly rankings, which I've routinely forgotten anyway, isn't something I feel is necessary anymore.

Would everyone be fine with that?

Yeah, no biggie

And no need for the weeklies, giving the monthly ranking for NPD is enough

It seems Switch is increasing sales performance each passing month. June looks very promising for it.

Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won
