Decent opening for Super Mario Party.
PS4's drop is pretty normal, the price cut for the Pro model will take effect on October 12.
Not good for Megaman.

I imagine the bulk of Mega man sales being digital. However even double those numbers are a bit concerning. 



 

Will likely be a powerful quarter for Switch with PLG next month and Smash after that, SMP should keep the baseline above 40k until then.



Switch is rising little by little again, so it's good. Good opening for Mario party. Megaman sold meh, little bit more on Switch. PS4 drop is horrible, as is almost everything else. Would have hoped Spiderman would still help a little, but it is surprising the game didn't help with hardware at all.



PLG seems to be something that will sell better than the spinoffs but nowhere near as much as the traditional mainline games (even the remakes). Smash will of course be a smashing success, but I'm not sure it will be able to drive hardware sales enough. Will be interesting to watch for sure. Nintendo absolutely needs a strong quarter in Japan to have any hope at all to meet their 20 million goal, unless they just overship like crazy, lol.

Don't know if i like those Mega Man-numbers hope it sold better digitally.



Nothing to see here, move along

I expected Switch to be in the 50k-60k range for this week, so 45k is disappointing. The party this week is anything but super.



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

Really low PS4 numbers, what happened? It's lower than before the boost they got last week though the relase of multiple titles, so it is not just going back to normal, but falls below that.

While Warriors Orochi sold better on PS4, MegaMan is selling better on Switch.

Mario Party did well.

Curious to see digital sales of Mega Man 11. Super Mario Party did ok, series just doesn't quite have the appeal that it did.

PS4 should be back over 20k after price drop on Pro model.

Though there is a difference between Orochi selling ~95k better on PS4 and Rockman selling ~2.5k better on Switch.
