Pretty standard stuff. Switch is a beast



 

 

What you see is what you get !

Not much moving around this week but it is definitely for the better with the recent turmoil in the production process.

Switch actually pulled ahead of PS4 in Europe this week. Heh, hard to know what numbers would be like overall if the coronavirus wasn't a factor. Switch should have higher numbers worldwide, but I'm not sure if the virus is affecting PS4 sales as well.



Switch domination again!! :D

What released last year for the PS4 to sell 350k that week?

Tax returns in the US is in february.. it's usually the third best selling month in the country. So it probably affected sales all month long. Also, a lot of big releases over the past month certainly helped as well.



Nothing far from expected.



Switch still putting up great numbers despite Japan shortages and no major release



Switch already 5 millions above Xbox One.
