I think BOTW is undertracking, acording to Nintendo it should be higher

Thanks for reading the OP.

But regarding BotW, it's the one Switch first party game that I'm pretty confident isn't undertracked. If you take Nintendo's shipment total and subtract copies in transit, on shelves, and those sold digitally I'd be very surprised if you end up with more than 3.9 million.

Thank you for the new adjustments. 

Around how many adjustments will you have to do in total?

On Tuesday you put up the numbers of UK and Germany on the same day. Was this by accident or are you planing to occasionally speed up the software numbers to reduce the backlog?

Several thousand, not including future releases of course.

I hope to yes, though I can't promise more than the ~1 chart a day I've been doing, just because the adjustments and the work on the new database are both taking up a lot of my time. GotY Awards season is also fast approaching and that eats up hours at a surprising rate too.

Wouldn't you want to devolve some of the tasks to another member to relieve you of the extra work? You could teach someone you trust to assist in putting up software numbers while you keep doing your adjustments.

It's pretty much a one man job - everything must be done in a specific order and the tools have to be accessed in that order too; if anything is even accessed out of order (let alone altered) it messes up the whole system and I have to ask one of the dev guys to reset everything and I have to start over. There's no practical way for more than one person to work on the software at the same time.

There are things that will free up time for me to focus more on the numbers though. For example right now I'm pretty much the only person adding new games to the database and making sure the release dates are accurate (so that they are accurate on the charts themselves). That eats up several hours a week. When the new database comes into effect I'm hoping the community will organically take up a lot of that burden for me.

Day 1 Pre Order USA

Day 2 US

Day 3 UK

Day 4 Germany

Day 5 France/Europe

Day 6 Japan/World

Day 7 Pre Order USA
