Right?! I was not expecting PS5 to beat the Switch in any week in Japan for along time. Great week for PS5. Shoes stock is improving.

It has finally happened! PS5 selling more than Switch thanks to a boost for the former and a big dip for the latter.



Signature goes here!

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Sorry.

The hardware results are hilarious. Next week the Pokémon Switch numbers will be big. They're holding back stock for the Switch, while PS5 stock is improving.

Bayonetta's sales are very good and extremely satisfying.
Astral Chain sold 32k in it's opening week in comparison. Digital is likely to be similar at over 60%, since Bayonetta 3 is at #1 on the eshop since Sunday.



Wow didn't expect Splatoon to still be up there. Was expecting more from Call of Duty and especially Bayonetta, but tbf Bayo was never a huge seller in Japan.



Any idea why Switch Lite lost 90 % compared to last year? Looks like there's not much interest left in this model.



The cliff is here!! Well till Pokemon releases...
