I think they're in for a great holiday season with all the sweet exclusives and the price drop. Don't know if they'll hit 10 million, but I'd bet they sell about a million in December.

If you go to selling one per store a day to two per store a day I'd guess that would be double. ;) j/k Seriously though I'm going to pickup one at some point when all this content they are showing is on the shelf for me to buy.
