Jesus, XB1 is a freaking disaster...

Around the Network

Switch still ahead, not too shabby... it's quite nice to see this mix up actually. The XBO still isn't doing too great though... although it'll no doubt pick up again once new games start releasing.

NS first for the third week in a row, but this time by a small margin.

Yeah, it's really become an exclusive item, isn't it?

Not surprised by PS4's performance.

Ps4 Is sold out at Amazon right now. It was having stock issues during this week?

Also the console is entering its 5th year cycle and it's selling on par with the switch (which is the hot item right now.) @$299.99

A $199 slim/$299 Pro will boost the sales more.

Japan once again holding the PS4 back.

Technical tie, good streak for Switch. But entering August and SpiderMan approaching I feel PS4 will be swing back very hard.

Probably just the barebones of what is left shipping them. Maybe Gamestop? Do Gamestop still sell New Vitas? 

Not in Canada. In fact the manager at one store told me the Sony rep told them to remove all the Vita software from display. And this is exactly what they have done, even as new games come in, they get put in the storage room or underneath the counter. And this was around 6 months ago already.

At the end of July Nintendo stated that momentum was increasing in every region since E3. These last few updates reflect that in North America & Japan but not in Europe where its down quite a bit, is there a reason for that?

Looking at the last software charts from France. I would think it sells mostly there and maybe a mix of Germany/Spain ... otherwise, it's not a massive juggernaut elsewhere from what I know.
