A win for 2020 so slim that it's appropriate to call it a statistical tie because the margin of error in Famitsu tracking could very well flip the results. Anyway, the last three weeks have been the most stable stretch for 2020 since week 9 to 11. Also, Switch crossed 15m LTD this week.

The performance of Ring Fit Adventure gives it a serious shot to compete with Wii Fit in the long run. Launch-aligned it's more than 1m units behind, but it's closing the gap now.

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

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Gamers Club

Switch doing quite well still, pretty equal with last week and last year. It seems like 70-80k is the baseline for the console.
PS4 is down 94.6% from the same week last year and 41.2% YTD compared to last year.

Avengers not being able to score the #1 position is not a good sign for the game in Japan.



Signature goes here!

Apparently 50K wasn't enough for Ring Fit. Its appetite is insatiable.
And Tsushima seriously has the best legs for a PS4 game in a long time.



well i might have been narrowminded on RFA

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Around the Network

The Switch now above 15M lifetime .

Could 70k-80k become the Switch's new baseline? I guess it'll all depend on the stock.

RFA is a beast.

Tsushima's legs are truly impressive.

Hajimari no Kiseki's drop is tragic, though I guess it's kinda expected for a JRPG



Chris on Era says OG NSW + ACNH bundle supply has been drastically lowered in the last few weeks, probably to reserve stock for holiday season. Which is why both ACNH sales and OG NSW sales have been a bit lower (instead of 50-70K for AC and 85-100K for NSW total).



Every week RFA is performing like a new release.



Oof at Kiseki sales, Falcom really should try to make their games same day multiplats, especially since the next game is gonna be the start of a new arc for the series.



RFA is new king to take the throne after Animal Crossing.



Pocky Lover Boy!
