PS4 Pro sales had quite the small weekly drop compared to the normal unit. Was there a big sale for the regular PS4 last week? Or are there stock issues still?

Stock issues, not only in Japan but Worldwide.

Question for everybody before I make a new thread, in your own opinion when do you think a successor will come out? Say year and either holiday or spring.

I’m still shocked most think 2022 and 2023

Holiday 2024.

I don't see any cliff in view.



Ring Fit joins the million sellers in Japan club.
Switch to PS4 ratio at 6:1.
Overall numbers seem like a normal pre-pandemic week.



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

It could only be a good thing.  I know there have been a few times a game has been on my radar, then when DLC hits and it starts popping up in news and such I'm like "oh yeah I should buy that".

Legs on Pokémon are good, just not 4Evergreen status like other 3-4 games. It’s holding on though and leggier than most Pokémon games at least

Fall 2023 at the earliest but I'm leaning towards Spring 2024 or later as time goes on.  I used to think Spring 2023 but that's not enough time for their marquee development teams to come up with meaningful software for its launch year: the Animal Crossing team just finished New Horizons, the 2D Mario team still has time to release one more big game for the Switch, the 3D Mario, Mario Kart and Zelda teams are probably going to release their big games starting this holiday season and Sakurai is still busy with Smash Bros. Ultimate.

I was going to say spring 2024 but since Nintendo said they want a longer than typical life for the Switch I'm going with spring 2025



Congratulations RFA! Another 1 million is on its way!
And a total Switch Domination on the top 10!



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Stock issues or switch is going back to normal?
