Splatoon at this point looks like it will outsell DQXI combined in Japan.

It will outsell it but the better Q is by how much? Probably 2mil :p

Not much going on this week. Market does look a bit healthier than it did a few weeks ago.

I am curious about Octopath's digital numbers, because I expected more this week considering the supply issues.

It has well documented stock issues and you expected more than it got? I am surprised it got as much as it did.

Fantastic week for Nintendo. PS4 sales are not bad and Detroit is close to eclipsing 100K physical sales.

All hardware improved, but massively so for 3DS. Was this the week with the 2DSXL-models with new styles (one being minecraft if memory serves right)?

Something happened on the Xbox-side of things too. Price-cut? Bundle?

So, Taiko drum master now conquering the Switch too.

Octopath Traveler can barely fight off Splatoon in week two, but following the news it probably could've looked a bit better if properly supplied. Overall Octopath sales are good, a bit better than expected. Seemingly this is true for Square too, they obviously expected lower sales.

Captain Toad stays high in the charts on week two too. I think Nintendo is happy with the sales.

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

Captain Toad Switch has done a similar amount in 2 weeks as the Wii U version did in 4 weeks.

Switch needs to average 40.7k to remain ahead going into the last 10 weeks of the year, down from 41.6k last week and 42.2k two weeks ago.

It looks like Switch will keep its YoY lead even with the strong summer Switch had last year.

PS4 hardware 20k+ again and Detroit: Become Human almost 100k. Very nice!

132k out of 6M reached

Shortages considered, it'll be interesting to see how Octopath Traveler performs next week.
Switch is moving in the right direction, which doesn't come as a surprise when we have the legendary Captain Kinoopio at the helm.
