Thanks CVXFREAK.

Nice little battle going between Mario and Wario. Speaking off which your total is a bit off for Wario. Last weeks actual total was 478,318. That puts it's total so far at 541,532.

:/ That's goofy. Obviously they must calculate numbers for more than 10 games to determine which are the top 10.
Yes they do, but Media Create only publicly display the sales figuers for the top ten. From 11-50 they just show position, no sales figure. Since the running totals are maintained by our own resident gafers, if a title drops off the chart the overall total can no longer be maintained. Only estimates, but no one currently bothers.

For some reason the Wario DS sales numbers between 2 weeks ago and last week got screwed up. Either they miscounted, or realized that they put a wrong number up for Wario 2 weeks ago and compensated for it last week.

Edit: Observe:

Dec 13/Dec19 Media Create = 5 DS Sawaru Made in Wario Nintendo 68,474 270,382
Dec20/Dec26 Media Create = 7 DS Sawaru Made in Wario Nintendo 106,861 377,243
Dec27/Jan2 Media Create = 3 DS Sawaru Made in Wario Nintendo 101,075 417,318

If you just take the weekly numbers and ignore the inconsistent total numbers Wario is around 540k. Don't know what's up with that.

Also, DS vs PSP totals...

Nintendo DS = 1,603,000
PSP = 544,000

Ahh. So it's not so much "Media Create is dumber than I thought" as it is "The people providing the data are doing more work than I thought". In that case, thanks to those people.
