Very possible adjustments could happen in the future as we always do them as we get more data. 

@trunkswd on average, how many weeks after the initial estimates are you able to make revisions? 

I can go back as far as I want to make adjustments to our estimates. I can only go back to the 7th generation as we didn't start weekly estimates until that generation. I have no way of editing older sales for the Platform Total page, but there are plans to add an edit button to those figures sometime in the future. Right now we only have one main developer and there is a lot we want to get done.

What the site decides for 2020 when it comes to 52 or 53 weeks I have no idea until I get it posted as it is all automated. But I would think it would be a 53 week year as 2008 and 2013 were 53 week years for us with the last week ending in January. 

The next quarterly report from Nintendo will settle the Switch' total sales for the year.  So whether 2020 has 52 or 53 weeks will become irrelevant, right?



Anyone has Wii best single weeks on record?



Nintendo ending the worst year ever with a BANG!

Thanks @trunkswd for your answer. My question was geared towards on average how many weeks or months does it take for you to receive new data that allows you to make a revision. Is it only when you get Official nintendo reports or is it sooner than that.

NS is going to pass the 3DS total shipment with its sell through by the end of the year, total shipments for NS will probably be at like 78m.

I wonder if it could have a chance to surpass the GBA before the end of the fiscal year ... probably at this rate I say.

Wasn't expecting this today, very nice surprise, thanks trunks.

Switch at 24.8 million YTD; by VGChartz reckoning are there two weeks left for the year, or does the week ending January 2nd count towards 2020?

No problem. I figured with the holidays at the end of the week it would be nice to get the hardware figures up a couple of days early. it also means I can relax by having a nice and long weekend. I'll try to get the other weekly sales articles up over the next couple of days. Those being the sales comparison charts and the new launch aligned comparison

Cool that means switch might just yet be the best selling console in a calendar year ever. I do hope that it gets 30 mil+ in the fiscal year as calendar year seems unlikely as of yet.
