Wow, another low week for Sony. I have to wonder if new versions of both the Slim and Pro are being announced so Sony is emptying their stock

I'm praying the shortage is legit. Either they have new models coming and/or a major price cut. However you'd expect it around e3 so maybe they just ran out of stock way to quick after monster Hunter world boosted hardware sales by more then expected.

Great sales for the Xbox One X!



Wow, this week hardware sales are just sad, with PS4 at 10k, and Switch beloew the 40k mark.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

updated the OP



Switch has had >50% weekly market share ever since Carl first mentioned it about two months ago. Vita and Xbox One were never going to do much and by now it's clear that the 3DS is fizzling out as well, so the majority of the sales will have to come from the PS4 if Switch is to be prevented from outselling all other consoles combined in any given week.

The upcoming slow period makes that an easier task because fluctuations in the baselines have a bigger impact on percentages when the total number of unit sales is lower.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Kirby still in Top 3 sales ! My prediction of good legs seems to be accurate 😏 I hope Labo will give some kinda boost for the upcoming on hardware/software numbers .... Same for GOW, the PS4 really needs it.

The weeks before GW really are shockingly bad for sales.

Really? We are still in this supply constraint theory? What now, Sony can only supply 10K to Japan? That's pathetic. Nom, everything dropped, not only PS4, so it is not the supply here. We look at baseline. Same for Switch. It will be better in Golden Week and with new releases (God of War and Labo for the respective systems).

Famitsu has confirmed ps4 stock shortages. It is not a theory.
