Big drop for Switch this week, likely due to anticipation for the OLED version. XBox Series up over 4K again.

Ni no Kuni II debut seems quite low (?)

Thanks for the numbers Kenjab. This is definitely the calm before the new model coming up. I saw somewhere that they are already implementing lotteries for the OLED model. Going to be very interesting to see. Arises' drop is bigger than I expected.

If there are any ERA refugees lurking here: Hi.



This is the cliff nothing to do with a new model

@OTBWY what kinda cringe shit is that?

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Ouch at Switch sales, we still have a couple bad weeks ahead before the OLED model. XBS is doing remarkably well, it'll blow past XB1's LTD in record time.



Signature goes here!

Software sales on the PS5 just provided by David Gibson, 500K since launch with four titles making up around 50% of those sales. For comparison, Minecraft on the Switch has outsold all games on the PS5 in the same period of time. 

In terms of Tales of Arise on the PS5, the second-week drop is above 86% with sales below 6673



Tales keeps in the top-spot, nice hold.

As an idea OP: could you link the last weeks thread in the OP, so that this forms a chain with which to access old data?

You got it, just added it to OP.

So now the Switch finally drops. Compared to the rest of the year this is a very low week for it but only three poor weeks ahead of the OLED model is better than I expected so it's not a big deal since it should make up the difference through October easily.

Also what has happened over at ResetEra the past few days is very unfortunate. That forum overall is terrible but the Japanese sales community was the only part of it I liked though with key members like Chris and Hiska not taking part anymore it's not gonna be the same. Hell a thread for these sales hasn't even been posted there yet it seems when it was pretty much always posted minutes after being revealed. At least things here will continue on as normal and perhaps this happening might boost activity a bit.
