How can Switch with two big launches still sell the same? Probably very stock limited. EDIT: Looking at the breakdown - hybrid Switch lost sales to last week, that model clearly is stock limited.

Story of Season starts strong, as expected. BD2 has a weaker launch than the original game, but still good. Super Mario 3D world has surprising good legs, still is ahead of Momotaro.

PS5 starts to look quite healthy, nearly half as much units as Switch this week.

Hopefully now people who were comparing PS5 to Wii U can see that its a stock limitation and not lack of demand. There is no visible brand crisis as was being implied by many,



Small bump for Switch, also another easy win over 2020. PS5 sees a great increase this week, the deficit against the PS4 launch dipping under 200k

Switch seems to be suffering from stock issues at the moment. Ps5 is starting to do some pretty OK numbers now thankfully.



Expected results for Olive Town's launch, hopefully Marvelous is able to address some of the issues with the game in the coming weeks.

Another clean Sweep for the Switch. PS5 sales massively increase. While PS5 softwares are no where to be found.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Switch still supply constrained I guess, but still decent numbers. PS5 hardware doing well. Third party games are having success on the Switch left and right, hopefully publishers are taking notice!
