This is 100% my fault. I messed up when it was first announced and listed them separately.

Since US pre-orders immediately get assigned to games as soon as I hook them up, if we were to create a unified entry now, we'd lose those sales. So it's a catch 22 atm - unify them but lose the pre-orders, or keep them separate and maintain the sales.

I'm kind of jumping the announcement gun here, but next year we'll be listing shipment data on game pages, which will allow us to resolve this issue (along with several others!). But for the next two months we'll have to track them separately.

I think the same thing should be done for this, agree or not?

Definitely not the same - these are straight-up duplicates, and they should be combined (different from two differently titled Pokemon games, though).

Unfortunately, I see sales data on both entries which will need to be cleaned up before one or the other can get deleted...    ...I'll leave this for @Machina - hopefully he can get this fixed! :)

Yeah we could create a new entry and combine the sales, then list the figure as an estimate, when we do the switch-over.



When you're a Nintendo fan, you have to count as much as possible. Kidding, please don't ban me.

I know, I'm glad that the fix for this case is a lot easier. 

What about this: http://www.vgchartz.com/game/86317/mario-amp-luigi-paper-jam-amp-mario-kart-7-double-pack/?region=All

Isn't it redundant? 

By the way, I can't send a message to anyone, otherwise I would discuss about these with you and Machina in a personal message.

I think that's a separate retail package, hence it's tracked separately from the individual games - again, I'll let Machina answer these types of questions...     ...I am, however, interested in the issue with sending messages - you're not the first person I've heard this from, and yet as far as I know, it works for the majority of users. So, something very user-specific is going on here.

When you say you "can't send a message" - exactly what is happening? Screen frozen? Error? 



I actually wish that all Pokemon games were counted seperately here on VGC. It is interesting to see how many people bought each version. Kinda makes me sad that Eevee is so far behind Pikachu though. I know Pikachu is the franchise mascot and all, but Eevee is cuter and has much better evolution options than Pikachu does (though of course you can't evolve your partner Pikachu/Eevee in Let's Go). Let's Go Eevee has the better version exclusives as well *shrugs*
