Some notes:
- XBS over 6K thanks almost entirely to Series S, which had its best week LTD, beating launch total of 4,287
- PS5 up a little bit WoW, clearly still affected by supply
- Switch down a little WoW, I expect a bounce back next week with Golden Week and Switch Sports launch
- 13 Sentinels Switch hangs on to top 10 spot
- eBaseball PowerPro 22 sells significantly more on Switch than PS4 compared to past versions

I think this week Switch will boost up its number due Switch Sports Release. So good for them
PS5 looks like it had stock supply this week but it seems that PS5 will not have the capacity to sell more of 20K units in japan at this point
And Xbox 6K consoles? Wow, that's great, god job Phil



Switch sports and Golden week should give Switch a nice bump next week.



^^ So Switch had its second best Week 16 ever (after 2021) even though the numbers aren't anything to write home about. Not sure why I thought we were on week 16 instead of 17. I'm very curious for next week and the release of Switch Sports.

I still think it was a missed opportunity for the Power Pro series to not have gotten a localization at some point in the 5 years Switch has been on the market.  Aside from the annual releases of FIFA and NBA2K, there's been a professional sports game void.  The RBI Baseball series is mediocre, so it's good that the MLB stepped in and insisted that The Show 22 be on all platforms including the Switch.  But, I think a Power Pro game, especially during the pandemic and lockdowns could have done well enough to warrant the effort of a western release.



13 Sentinels has a better second week drop than the original release. The PS4 version had an 86% drop.



Everyone but Microsoft trying to build up some stock for Goldenweek it seems



Switch beginning to trail behind a little too much. Might be the time where Nintendo starts reacting now.

Have you seen Shadowlink's charts? It's way above 2019 and dropping that low this time of the year isn't unusual. The 3DS launch aligned was selling less than a third of the Switch's numbers on average weekly. Sometimes sub 20k. The Switch still has a lot of steam in it's engine.
