Xbox series is holding well.



Proud to be a Californian.

Battle of the digital consoles.

Xbox Series S leading the year over the PS5 diskless. 144,388 > 79,159.

PS5 diskless leading lifetime to date over the Series S. 273,368 > 199,755.



...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.

Xbox doing solid job there



Around the Network

Here are some interesting graphs made by PillFencer on Installbase:

As we can see Trails in the Dark II had a slightly higher debut than it's predecessor.



So what’s more reliable for hardware numbers, Famitsu? Or Mediacreate? Because they have a big difference for the Xbox numbers between the two of them.

Still the series is on a massive decline, perhaps they should consider launching their games faster in the west. The fact we are now a trilogy behind is pretty sad. The cold steel saga even did rather well in the West.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Wow not just the software, but the hardware sales for Famitsu and Mediacreate are very different.
Famitsu (Aug. 29 - Oct. 2)
Switch - 565,559
PS5 - 81,934
Xbox Series - 45,217

Mediacreate (Aug. 29 - Oct. 2)
Switch - 465,362
PS5 - 67,632
Xbox Series - 28,215

I'm guessing Famitu includes online sales like Amazon, and Mediacreate is purely retail sales? Idk just a speculation

Could be because all the consoles are much higher for Famitsu.



Signature goes here!
