Around the Network

For the first time in a long time, PS4 takes the top four games this week. Down week overall for hardware, except Xbox Series which is on track to pass Xbox One lifetime sales as early as this month.

Expect a big rebound in hardware next week with the release of the OLED Switch!



SW-3707-5131-3911

Switch keeps dropping and dropping. When is the OLED happening again?

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020

10 years greatest game event!

bets: [peak year] [+], [1], [2], [3], [4]

Tomorrow, so it will be reflected in next week's hardware sales.

Will be interesting to see if that reverts the losses of the past weeks.

EDIT: I am hyped to see next weeks results then.

The final bad week for Switch. Impressive performance by the PS4 placing 4 titles at the top but meanwhile pretty big drop for PS5 which does down to 12.8k hardware units.



Signature goes here!

100K for Xbox next week. It's clear in will outsell the XBONE (in a impressively short amount of time), now to see if it can compare to the original Xbox or the 360 in Japanese sales.

Please Watch/Share this video so it gets shown in Hollywood.

Good to see Xbox doing decent in Japan, hope it continues. Will be interesting to see what OLED does for Switch numbers next week, these past few weeks been meh AF
