Really ? sales are less than half of the last week, I really don't believe this is because of the tax which actually affects the prices in a minor way, it is not like if everything was suddenly 30% more expensive.



Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
WR on TGM alternative mode : Fastest ITEM S9 rank ( <-- Just got massacred by the 2nd most powerfull player in the world )
Current PB on Power Ranger (Game Gear) : 10min06 (World Record)

Non-geek activity : ThermalHungary

That's why I mentioned the taxes point last and brought up Dragon Quest and Switch Lite first since those are the bigger factors.

Without the tax, sales wouldn’t have been as high last week, as people prepurchase items in advance. Last time there was a tax increase, there was a mini recession I believe. So yeah, there was an effect but it won’t last long 



Week 41 numbers just posted; Another steep drop as the Switch is almost back to the same baseline it was before the Lite launched.

That is due to the typhoon that hit over the weekend.
