Around the Network

It isn't really surprising to see the launch of new hardware surpassing the launch of a good piece of software. In the end, it's also just a collection, a popular collection cert' but it isn't the Animal Crossing of this Fall.

Good to see other softwares holding up. Also, I presume that Clubhouse has finally surpassed Ghost of Tsushima on the overall physical sales chart ?



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

Switch has now reduced the gap to the 3DS launch aligned to less than 1M units.

While PS4 is now less than 50k units ahead of the PS3 launch aligned.



I was expecting more. Let's see what the rest of the world did when they update the site



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Switch sold a lot of hardware this week, but I was hoping they'd sell more. Makes me think they didn't ship an extra large amount to Japan. 3DS has a second week this year that it outsells the PS4. Wonder if it will get a 3rd?



Around the Network

2020 loses by significant margin as expected. The same will happen next week. However, recent sales have been strong enough to make week 40 up for grabs. Also, 2020 has a slim chance to reach 4m YTD in the upcoming week 39.

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

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

Thought Switch hardware would be higher



This is one of the rare times I expected more from the Switch ngl. However, Im sure the west will do far better with this since they care about Mario games way more.



I was expecting higher for Switch, like 150k or so but maybe stock was more focused towards other regions this week. Seems that only around a dozen weeks will be down this year which is very good.

10./09. [NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate # (Nintendo) {2018.12.07} (¥7.200) - 6.288 / 383.717 (-7%)

Huh?

Super Smash Bros. at 383k LT? Is that right?

Also, good debut for Super Mario 3D All-Stars.
