Ggs nier
Not a bad opening considering how old the game is.

Nier actually did pretty well yea. Port took so long but i think the demand was still there after all.

2021: 4.09 million
2020: 4.15 million

2018: 1.85 million
2017: 1.88 million

what... happened to next-gen especially xbox. Splatoon over 3m with just physical, and decent numbers for Nier nice.



Even though Xbox Series supply was almost non-existent this week this is still probably better than the Xbox One did in a typical week which is quite something.



Decent enough Switch sales. PS5 and Xbox Series X|S fell quite a bit due to limited stock.

Interesting that DQX rose 51% on Switch but dropped 31% on PS4. Did only Switch got a new shipment of the game?



Dang a month in and S3 still selling 120k! Wonder if it can hit 4M retail by end of year.
