    Yes, 150-200k seems possible. It would be a very good result ! So, after the next week, the US sales could to be already around 1,5/1,6 million copies.

        Well, if HDD is right it seems to drop a bit faster than I was hoping for. They predict 65-70k for this week, so 200k in thanksgiving week seems high :-? Maybe 150k!

            Ah yes, it's only 65-70 for this week ! So, I hope at least +50% next week = 100k minimum.

                That's cool, especially considering HDD said 65-70k.

                                          • Remaster sales compared to originals

                                            How are the remasters selling compared to what the originals did? Well, Who Made Who isn't moving what it used to, but most of the others are doing better now.
                                            It's been 17 years since SS began and the remasters have been out for 5 years. With 12 years of sales for the originals and 5 for the remasters, the remasters should now be expected to have scanned about 45% of the original's sales.
                                            Let's see:

                                            (title, remaster sales/original sales, remaster percentage sales compared to original)

                                            FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK (314/392) 80%
                                            HIGH VOLTAGE (629/933) 67%
                                            HIGHWAY TO HELL (731/1193) 61%
                                            BACK IN BLACK (2308/4023) 57%
                                            IF YOU WANT BLOOD YOU'VE GOT IT (165/332) 50%
                                            DIRTY DEEDS DONE DIRT CHEAP (565/1184) 48%
                                            LET THERE BE ROCK (134/312) 43%
                                            WHO MADE WHO (167/1646) 10%

                                            (The rest of the titles were either released during SS or we have no updated numbers to use.)

                                            One reason the remasters have scanned relatively better than the originals is due to the decrease of club sales. I imagine the remasters have sold far less through music clubs than the originals did, and of course Soundscan doesn't include those sales.

                                            The remastered version of For Those About To Rock looks like a big success. I have no idea why it has scanned almost as much these past 5 years as it did the first 12 years of SS.

                                            WMW has stopped selling compared to the original.
                                            I think that it was mistaken for a hits collection in the early 90's. It's a 1986 soundtrack that does include dome of the big hits from the early 80's. When SS began it sold well and charted regularly on the catalog chart. But it was never meant as a best-of and after the release of Live in late 1992 it went downhill for WMW.

                                            • It looks like Black Ice held up nicely in the post-Black Friday week. According to HDD it's the non-holiday album with the smallest sales drop in the top 20.

                                              We'll have to wait and see the SS numbers, but it looks like the new total is around 1,564k

                                              With 3 Xmas weeks now coming up, it could still get close to 2 million by year-end!

                                                  SS even better! Just a 5% drop, as I said the smallest in the top 20 by a non-holiday album.
