As expected, Crash is selling way better on the Switch than the Xbox One.

Sooo... Taiko Drum Master now conquering the Switch.

A thing I noticed, in the german chart (but only there), Captain Toad has an incredible hold which brings it to the top of the chart missing any other significant release. Anyone knows the reason?

Also, Sonic Mania has apparently it's normal release, not only a special edition. Sells a bit better on Switch than PS4, XBox One version is trailing behind.

Oh, and while Lego Incredibles launched better on PS4 it seems to have better legs now on Switch. May be an interesting fight in the long run.

But a lot worse than on PS4. I actually expected the Switch-version to be closer to release-sales of PS4, as Platformers do usually very well on Switch, even as late ports. But seemingly Crash is still associated strongly with Playstation.

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

Crash is evidently mostly popular in Europe where PS4 dominates like no other and is a weak market for Switch. That's probably the biggest factor here.

But a late port is still a late port. TfB do the same mistake with Spyro, which doesn't make any sense.

Spain, France and Germany loves Nintendo (especially in France), not that weak. But weaker than PS4 for sure.

I agree. We need digital numbers already.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Digital sales on ps4 would blow digital on switch out of the water.
