I hope you'll remember that 13.56m represents the final tally for Wii U and stop adding sales once you get there.

I am very much aware of that and will keep an eye on the LT sales we have. 

Good. I wasn't sure because of what you said in the OP ("13.56m as of September 30"), because that's the same figure as it was as of March 31st, 2017.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

That is just how I keep track of what has been done. Once we get to 2018 I will likely just put Xbox 360 sales at 0 everywhere, since Microsoft stopped manufacturing it a while ago. And as you said once Wii U hits 13.56m I will put those numbers at 0 everywhere. As for the PlayStation 3 I'm not 100% sure when to just put those numbers at 0.

Probably when it stops being sold in japan. After all, it still gets tracked there by MC and Famitsu.

This may seem odd, but is it possible changing the bar chart colors on the main page?

I think Nintendo is supposed to be red and PS is supposed to be blue.

Already on the fix list.

Can we get a better blue than the current one then? More inline with the blue colour on PS4 game covers instead?



Tagging for followups.

I think RavenXtra already sorted out exactly which colours we need to use, and yeah it's a darker blue for PS4. I'll ask him to confirm though.

I've adjusted the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch figures in the US to be more in line with the leaked NPD figures. That means some months were adjusted up, while others were adjusted down. These changes were just done, so it might take a little bit before it shows up on the main site. 

Will you be doing this for 2013 - 2016 as well?



Won bet with t3mporary_126 - I correctly predicted that the Wii U's LTD at the end of 2014 would be closer to 9 million than 10 million. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6673287

Do you have a link(s) to NPD figures for those years? I've only been doing the hardware figures since earlier this year.

I lied, it was Ryuu that did the groundwork. And yes it's a darker shade that matches one of the ones Sony uses (though they actually use a lot of different shades; we're going for one of the darker ones they use so that it contrasts more with the old Nintendo light blue).

Great initiativ!



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.
