I really don’t get the marginalizing of pokemon Lets Go. Sure it didn’t sell as well as Sun and Moon, along with other mainline installments. But then people start debating whether it’s a spinoff or not despite TPCI and even Masuda himself said it’s a core title. Then people mention that Let’s Go flopped. What???

The Let’s Go games are selling well whether you like the games or not. People believe the games were going to be bad? Whelp, apparently they aren’t based on feedback. It sold over 3 million worldwide in the first few days of launch. That’s hard to debate against, especially since it’s $60 (or $100 if you got the Poke Ball Plus bundle) compared to $35-40 that the mainline games were in the past. Let’s not be like Square Enix and act disappointed in 3.4 million sales of the 2013 reboot of Tomb Raider.



Labo not in the top 20 I see. Probably wont see any more kits then.

Kit 3 was #28 last week with 1673 units
Kit 1 was #45 with 974 units.

And this weeks average is much higher than last week. Hopefully MC spills some numbers for the top 50 again.

Switch domination. Mario Kart 8 DX now surpassed Super Mario Odyssey.
I think Persona Q2 did well considering the dying state of the 3DS.

And people thought Wii U ports were bad for the Switch.

And yea Persona Q2 is impressive considering circumstances. I hope Atlus considers developing ports of the mainline Persona games for Switch. There shouldn't be a reason that would stop them from doing it, since Persona Q allows Nintendo fans to get their feet wet into the franchise, getting rid of a myth that Persona is a PlayStation thing for Atlus.



pokemon 1 million next week?
we will have smash boost, it might help pokemon to get to 1 million.



Switch outselling PS4 by 6:1 without a major release this week.

What are the LTD sales for both systems in Japan? At this rate it surely can't be too long before Switch passes PS4 in total Japanese hardware sales?

NSW-5.83m

PS4-7.31m

 

I'm guessing the gap will close to 500-600k at the end of the year.
