More than 22 Switches sold for every PS4 this week.

Looks like Ring Fit got a restock. I'd love to know global numbers for that one.

Considering how well it's selling in Japan, I'm pretty sure it will get at least a mention in the next investor's relations meeting during the quarterly results in January.

Nintendo's supplementary information each quarter lists all games that shipped 1m+ units during the given fiscal year, so RFA's numbers will be known for at least the next two quarters. The game should also have strong enough legs to eventually hit 1m during the fiscal year ending March 2021, so despite the threshold for the overall top 10 software titles increasing each quarter, RFA shouldn't vanish into the abyss anytime soon.



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

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Ok that's insane 



Top 30 looks like 

25 Switch
5 PS4

Doesn't even look like PS4 is in this software-wise either.

These circumtances reminded me of the 3ds domination era, heck even in week 50 of Famitsu sales data, 3ds never had this kind of software domination in the top 30 charts. The best 3ds ever had was in 2016 with 19 Softwares in the top 30.

But if you check the COMG charts, you'd swear it was the other way around.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Switch could come very close to a 30/30 next year.

I think it was due to competition. The Switch has no tough competition right now. Compared to the 3DS which had the Vita, PS3, PS4 and even the Wii U. The only thing stopping the Switch from fully dominating the market is the japanese devs which are continuing to make PS4 exclusives. 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Is anything big coming out for PS4 this week? If not its gonna be even more lopsided in the next weeks figures! Those top two PS4 games are brand new and will drop hard on the charts.
