Switch Lite launches in week 38. Two months of rather easy comparisons ahead, then the six-digit-figures start with Pokémon: Let's Go.

Does Pokemon Sword/Shield release the same week as Let's Go did last year?

Yes, looks like it.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Yes, will be released the same week. Can be a good week-to-week comparison



77,400 Switches to 65 Xbox One's...... is a Ratio of 1200 : 1.

PS4 doing ~34k... decent.



I hope the Astral Chain legs turn out at least somewhat decent. Seems like it might just barely pass 50k physically.

Surprised that an Expansion for MHW boosted Ps4 sales.

Farsala said:
MHW did okay, on COMG it did pretty bad, but in Japan as a whole it did okay.

Well the retail version of Iceborne is the Original version + the expansion.

So everyone who already had the original MHW would probably just buy the expansion, which is cheaper, and digital only.
In other words, Iceborne probably sold a lot more digitally. Even last time, the digital version was over 50% on opening week in Japan. But that time it was mainly due to the retail version being sold out. This time there's a strong incentive for people who already own MHW to get the expansion digitally.

So mhw just become the best selling game in japan again this gen. It did around 300k this week so total should be well over 4 million including digital.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf is the best-selling game of the gen with 5.1 million at retail alone.

Damn u wasn't expecting the Switch to keep it that high for this week... idk if people don't care about the Lite as much as we thought or if it will really be that big. It's rare that consoles do these kind of numbers before a new version comes out. I guess this time it's different since they don't really give the same experience. People really wanted a better battery life it seems

Hopefully this means that there will be two different audiences hitting when the lite comes out. First week will be big, atleast 150k



Decent start for MH. I wanna see what it did digitally.

3ds isnt this gen. Switch has replaced it. Ps4, xbox one and switch are current gen
