We are officially in the first week of September, which means the last quarter of the year is officially underway.

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

The year has 16 months.. you learn something new every day.



Guess I jumped the gun and mistook September for October.
(And I meant Calendar Year, not Fiscal Year.)

No. When talking about years trimester and quarter is the same thing. Trimester means a three month period and since a year has twelve months a quarter is also three months.

Might be a language difference, as here a trimester is generally understood as a 4-month period, with 3 trimester forming a year. (2 semester, 3 trimester, 4 Quartals...)

PlayStation 4: Down in all regions.

PlayStation 5: Down in all regions

Xbox One: Down in all regions.

Xbox Series: Up in Europe and Japan; Down in the United States and the Rest of the World; Down overall.

This was an interesting week. Back in 2014, Destiny came this week and it catapulted the PS4 to over triple its baseline and nearly doubled the Xbox One's baseline. As such, the PS5 and Xbox Series are taking rare Ls this week.

So this week marks the last week of September for this year and we find the PS5 and Xbox Series down this week. This is due to the launch of FIFA 15 for the PS4 and Xbox One in 2014, as you could tell from the boosts for this systems in Europe and the Rest of the World, the two strongest regions for FIFA by far. Soccer, man, it's like a freaking religion over there. As a hardcore baseball fan, fairly avid basketball fan, and casual football fan, I laugh whenever I see someone from America talk about how either one of those 3 sports are the biggest sport(s) in the world. 

This week also marks the last week before the Switch OLED model releases and that should lead to the Switch getting a sizeable boost next week. Just in time for the REAL last quarter of the year.
