Major Switch Titles Launch Aligned

Hey look, a PS5 game!

And it only sold 1,000 units less than the Switch version despite a gap of several million hardware units.

Whenever I look at Japan's PS5 hw numbers, I always wonder: Where are the software numbers? It's almost non existent.

Oh look one example out of tens of hundreds. Usually PS5 games don't even chart in the top 30 aka they probably sell less than 1k, the gap you're talking about.



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

No, i think that there's a mistake in here cauz the game has been released on PS4, Switch and Steam.
There's no PS5 version for this game.

This way, numbers should be more logical with a gap of 1000 units between Switch and PS4 versions.

That's a typo, it's PS4.
