Japanese hardware sales, Sept. 20 - Sept. 26: All the leaves are brown edition

The sky hasn't become regularly gray just yet, but leaves have started hitting pavement (we're city dwellers) and the scorching, murderous summer sun has cooled -- it's officially Q4. In the coming weeks, we'll see major releases from North American, European, and Japanese development studios, and these numbers you show up for dutifully every Sunday night will be irrevocably changed. Hug them one last time before they go, things are about to get super sewious.
