Around the Network

Switch evergreens making up almost the whole Top 10. Switch hardware sales slipping again, OLED model can't come soon enough. Big drop for XBS but still very respectable numbers.



Signature goes here!

Evergreen selling really well.

Tsukihime for Switch has been completely sold out since launch. It's selling very well on the eshop though.

Switch hardware is surprisingly stable, I thought it would have dropped lower already because of the OLED coming up.



21m barrier broken for the Switch.



Another week like this next week won't be good enough to stay ahead YTD.

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

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Shipments

Around the Network

Ring Fit Adventure takes the top spot. I'm not sure the last time it has done that (if ever). It always sells consistently well, but I can't remember if it has ever been big enough to take the top spot. I guess this both shows the selling power of RFA, and how it's been a good while since we've had a really notable release out of Japan.



The imminent release of Oled is killing sales in Japan at the moment, in two weeks 2021 will be behind and in five weeks when Oled releases it will be around 50-100k behind. Then things will start to heat up and then hopefully Oled, MP superstars and Poke'mon D & P can work some magic.

There is a 110K week on the horizon from 2020 so there is no shadow of a doubt that 2021 will be behind the only question is by how much before the Oled mixes things up.

Last week was one of the only 3 over 5k so is not a surprise that it is down.
