Hey @trunkswd in the hardware by date section I think the last week was inserted as 2000 or 2001 instead of 2021

I only see this issue in the yearly and monthly, not the weekly versions

That is an odd issue. I can't do anything about it as that graph is automatically generated and updated with the latest figures.

PS4 and Xbone are sooo close in North America, though both sadly and hilariously the same goes for Xbox Series and 3DS in Japan.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

What happened in Switch week 20 in Japan, Splatoon 2?

Yes, it's Splatoon 2. But it's also the time when Nintendo's production increase that was ordered in January/February 2017 materialized in the marketplace, so that's why Switch's baseline continued to be higher afterwards; unfortunately, the graph doesn't show this properly because it's cut off.

The production increase may have been ready a couple of weeks before Splatoon 2 already, but Nintendo has a habit of stockpiling for big releases. We are seeing the same thing right now again in Japan with the upcoming release of Monster Hunter Rise.



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

I figured out the cause of the issue when I looked at VGC Pro. Some glitch happened and March 6 was listed as week 0 and year 0 instead of week 9 and year 2021. @TruckOSaurus is amazing and quickly fixed the problem when I saw it.
