Around the Network

Milestones this week:
- Switch passes 28M sold
- MK8D passes SSMBU
- Minecraft (SW) passes 3M sold at retail



SW-3707-5131-3911

MK8D was so far behind Smash for so long but it just kept on truckin' with those legs and now the big day has arrived when it takes 2nd place retail for Switch.



Nintendo it's time to cut prices now. 75k is a good number but like really hope they use Zelda ToTK to push the final years of the console, release a Nintendo select line and cut the price of the console.



It would be a good time for a price cut, but I just don’t see Nintendo doing it until maybe after the new hardware is out.

Minecraft at over 3 million and still selling. How much farther can it go, 3.5M? 4m? is 5million a possibility? 



Ps5 starting off pretty strong
Xbox series back over 1000
Ps4 got defibrillator-ed (or adjusted)
One piece at 60k+
And switch catching up to the ds

I feel 2023 in Japan is going to be a ride



I have been tracking MK8 vs SSB for awhile now. I think at one point the difference was over 600k in the past 2 or 3 years, but MK8 trucked along and has now surpassed SSB.

On a completely different note, there are reports of some retailers allowing the PS5 to be sold over the counter. One store might get ~10 available, so some lucky few have been able to get there quick and early and pick up the PS5 without going through the tedious lottery or point card system.

Perhaps in the next few months, PS5s will actually be stocked on the shelf without being sold right away.
