Great to see BF2 Bombing.
Skyrim Switch doing pretty great sales!
LA Noire as a whole bombed, but glad to see the Switch version sell very well compared to other SKUs given the number of consoles out there.
Doom Switch took a big hit in the second week but that was expected. Holiday boosts will hopefully get it to 500k WW



Lol, SW Battlefront did about 1/4th of CoD WW2 first week in the US. Hopefully that will serve as a wake-up call to EA to knock off this loot box crap they've been trying to force into games.

Skyrim Switch US only beat Doom Switch worldwide first week.

Sims 4 console ports did better than I expected.

LA Noire did much less than I expected based on the way it was ranking on Gamestop's website leading up to release. What a shame, was hoping it would sell enough to convince Rockstar there is enough interest for a sequel, doesn't seem like that will happen now



Was not expecting that much on Skyrim for Switch fw. Also nice to see LA Noire Switch above the Xbone version and close to the PS4.



Surprised Telltale Batman did that badly.



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

Amazing numbers for Skyrim. It will manage to debut with 150k+ FW maybe and it was really high in the eshop for a few weeks.
And LA Noire perfoming almost equally on Switch as on PS4 is incredible.



Pokemon seems low.

In Japan it went from like 1.8m for S/M to 1.2m for US/UM.

In the US it went from 1.5m+ for S/M to under 500k for US/UM.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

These aren't the main releases a la Sun and Moon and XY, but side games.

 

Also.....they are just strange games. I've beaten the main story of USUM and am currently happy working to shiny breed for once.....but I will not pretend that they were not odd even by third version standards. 

 

For comparisons, Black and White's sales were twice that of Black 2 White 2's sales.

I'm surprised that LA Noire on Switch managed to sell as well as on the two other consoles, while the new Lego game sold less on Switch.

I know, im talking about how drastic the drop is in relation to Japan.

In Japan in did 2/3 of the original while in US it did under 1/3.
