Surely those XBOX salez can't all be scalpers?



So on a surprisingly strong week for PlayStation software, Switch and Xbox respond by having bonkers hardware sales.

Japan you crazy

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

Why is there a barrage of PS4/PS5 games filling the top 10 charts all of a sudden?

Just a lot of PS4/5 releases this week

...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

CYQ3 (week 27 to 39) 2022 is now up on 2021 by 680k to 649k with 4 weeks remaining of the quarter. 2021 sales started to dip in this period due to the imminent launch of the Oled. This will be the only Quarter in which 2022 outperforms 2021 IMO.



Graph from Hiska -Kun from InstallBase



Earth Defense Force is a classic, Gundam is also a classic. They aren't good game series as they are in the genre of stupid meme games.



Earth Defence Force 5 sold almost twice as much asthe PS4 version of 6 in it's opening week.

Most games are performing close to how I expected them to perform, except for Soul Hackers 2 PS5. I thought it would be below 10k, so 20k is very impressive.

Switch hardware is also impressively high and XBS sales are crazy.

I wonder how many of these 87k OLED Switches are the Splatoon edition.
