Projected USA+Canada rates using July Canada data & Total sales/canada (for June*) in a sales extrapolation:
* June was 5 weeks, July is 4 weeks. Also, Nintendo seems to have shipped a higher than normal amount of Wiis to Canada, since Wii Canada sales suggest Canada = 12% of North America, while all other totals suggest 5-8%
** PSP in Canada appears to be anamoly this month, as Sony prepares for the new model PSP...
