PlayStation 4/Xbox One/Nintendo Switch: 2019 vs. 2020
(https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread/241660/ps4xbons-2019-vs-2020/1/)

Around the Network

Pokemon Sword and Shield has officially past Super Smash Bros ultimate to become the biggest COMG launch for the Nintendo switch.
Opening day points for SWSH is at: 1444 points.

Barely above smash, however, this does tell us that Pokemon will have greater walk up sales in comparison to Smash. If the let's Go ratio stays true, the opening could be as big as 1.6m





TLoU 2 is actually moving...



Yikes, looks like Shenmue III didn't get a lot of attention outside of the Kickstarter backers.

I still only see 6 SKUs releasing next year. I wonder what this chart will look like after New Year's. Or in 11 days, for that matter.

Was Shenmue ever really popular in Japan?



Certainly more popular than this.

Shenmue I sold ~380k in Japan on the Dreamcast. 

Shenmue II sold ~150k, but the game was released in 2001 when the Dreamcast was already dead and SEGA went 3rd party.

Total: 1484 (+1019 WoW)

This is the second biggest week for Switch in the COMG weekly chart. Smash launch week was bigger overall. (1534 vs 1654)

DQ XI S streak is over after 7 weeks.

So in a span of 2.5 years from the release of the first game to the release of the second it lost around 230k sales.... and you're surprised that the 3rd game isn't doing well now 18 years after Shenmue II was released?
