True 2015 only had 51 weeks

 

LOL sorry Rick but a comparison of a full year is still going to be equal

well i'm not talking about a full year, but as of now if someone is judging  this years sales, he's gonna think well why did switch dominate in JAN so much, and its because of the extra week, and the only reason why switch is ahead at the moment.

I get that but then we would also have to find out which month(s) Sony picked up that extra week for 2015 and make a note there.  When looking at the full year it really doesn't matter in my humble opinion.  Either way unless you edit your post and all of us that quoted you do too then it is now noted.

Someone pick tie in the poll so that I can say I called it, that would be a sic prediction if it panned out. I picked PS4 but now regret not picking tie

Don't you realize that 2018 is 53 weeks long?

what does that have to do with anything i'm saying?

You said that you aren't talking about the full year as if it meant something, but it doesn't make a difference. 2018 will have one extra week in comparison to 2015 all year long.



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

Can you actually talk about the topic instead of derailing the thread like you always do?

The thread is about overall sales for the year so one week means next to nothing in the long run so just drop it.

LOl what do you think i'm doing? you want to make analysis on sales the first 2 months are very important especially since we are comparing ps4 vs switch, so far it looks like ps4 based on jan and February results. plus ps4 had amazing holidays period that switch won't come close.

So far it looks like Switch will win. You can note that Switch had an extra week of sales, but that extra week won't be deducted from the total sales for the year.

switch got a extra week in jan, that has to be deducted, or mentioned at the very least.

Agreed.

@zorg1000

Skew the numbers in any way that could help the PS4 win.

As opposed to skewing the numbers in any way that could help the Switch win?
