second year it was around 1.8 million. thats with 3-4 days excluded so probably around 2 million. first year it 1.5. all we have to do is look at the chart, in europe it says 3.5 million sold through according to there chart, yet they shipped 5.2 million there, so it's something hard to figure out, maybe there killing it in asia, who knows.
They shipped 5.2 million in OTHER, not Europe.
Other includes Europe, Australia, Africa & Asia (excluding Japan).
Europe is ~3.5 million
We dont have any concrete numbers for the other 3 continents but we know S. Korea alone did 110k in 1 month so it not out the question that they did close to 1 million combined.
Japan sold ~3.35m (average of Media Create & Famitsu)
Japan shipped ~3.7m
Americas sold ~5.5m (USA 4.88m NPD, Can+LatAm ~600k)
Americas shipped ~5.9m
Other sold ~4.5m (Europe ~3.5m, Au/Af/As ~1m)
Other shipped ~5.2m
On shelves/in transit
It adds up
remember that chart states as of week 47 which is till jan 21. 1 million in other only in Au/Af/As, is very very high. i also wouldn't have a problem believing over 13 million if it wasn't for the sold through 10 million date as of december 10, and npd data, it just doesn't line up. the data from nov 26-till December 9 NPD wouldn't be included at the very least it sold 500k in that period. that leaves 1 million in the north America is strongest region by far. so every where else it sold less, it does it get to 3 million? only way is if nintendo 10 million announcement excluded or regions or they were at 10.5 million.
