I think we will see similiar to last month or much higher sales for sure even if its 1 week less. Way too Many Wiis arrived at stores in huge quantities.

This. I've heard too many anecdotal reports of massive shipments when there weren't any before to believe sales are going to be anything but earth shattering.

A note to those who have predicted X360 at 400K or higher: Do you realize it didn't even do that well last year, when it still had the Halo 3 bump going for it? It went from a 528K September to a 366K October.
