    1. After next week it will be normal. There is a holiday on this week for japan. It was Monday I believe.

  1. Well, looks like the Wii U sales are going back down again. And sadly, they’ll probably eventually go back down to 7k or 9k (or lower). At least until Zelda Wii U comes out. Why do I never see these sort of sales charts for North America? If I do, then I can’t remember.
