Love Japanese names for games: "Commentary powerful professional baseball 2018".

So a re-release of Donkey Kong pushes hardware better than Labo. Gotta wonder if it comes down to availability more than new software for Japan.

Also, I'm thinking 30k could be a decent baseline for the PS4.

Why the boost for hardwares?

So a re-release of Donkey Kong pushes hardware better than Labo. Gotta wonder if it comes down to availability more than new software for Japan.

Also, I'm thinking 25k could be a decent baseline for the PS4.

I think this was Golden Week, so all hardware received a boost. You can see it in software sales too, the usual Switch games with legs sold notably more than in the previous weeks.

Tropical Freeze on Wii U opened to ~40k units, so the Switch version is doing significantly better.



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

Golden week



another week without ps4 stock issues.
and ofc the Switch being a sales monster.
