Switch the console of the Devil confirmed.

Like I said before, no wonder it's beasting

Another great-looking Switch top 10 software list.

More available Xbox stock in September, so the PS4 doesn't manage to remain flat year over year like in August.



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

Effing Xbox screwing my prediction by selling more than expected. 

Wonder how high Switch can go in the holiday quarter.. can it top DS peak in North America? That would be like 6M sales in the final three months of the year with the biggest new title being Age of Calamity. With enough Animal Crossing bundle sales, Fortnite bundle sales, Ring Fit supply... it's possible even without a major 1st Party holiday title. Pokemon expansion could also help 

Anyways doesn't seem like Western AAA 3rd Parties have anything lined up, their loss this holiday - madness really, at least Koei Tecmo is about to have their best selling title in the US by a considerable margin. Must be fun in the executive board rooms, as only Ubisoft has a AA game dated for this holiday on the system - Immortals: Fenyx Rising. Square still hasn't updated us on Bravely Default 2 but the longer we wait the less likely we are to see it in 2020. Can't really think of anything else. 

At least indies and smaller studios are enjoying the success, Hades is probably the best new game I've played in 2020.  

Immortals is definately a AAA game. But yeah, so much missed opportunity here.. record breaking hardware sales and big publishers shy away from releasing games on it. Super weird and bad business. Doom Eternal might make it also - might. But that's it for AAA games from third parties I think.. Unless there's something sneaky getting a reveal at a partner direct that should air next week or the one after that.

Melody of Memory should do well I guess, it's a Kingdom Hearts game after all :P But not a AAA game.

And yes, Hades is definately the best game I've played released in 2020 across all platforms. Damn fine game.

What are the best selling 3rd party titles on Switch? I mean, aside from Minecraft, of course.

I think Mario+Rabbids if you consider it as a tp, otherwise Skyrim, FIFA18/19, Crash N.Sane Trilogy and maybe also The Witcher 3



Zanark best Inazuma Eleven pg

Don't forget Stardew Valley or Rocket League. They've had crazy legs on the Eshop charts and have no doubt amassed a couple of million sales.

Damn, you're right, I forgot indie and "only downloadable" games. I wonder if Ori BF, Ori WotW, Cuphead and Undertale made that achievement, too.

Probably too early for Will of the Wisps, but yea the others would have hit at least a million I'd imagine. Hollow Knight is definetely also up there and Enter the Gungeon was confirmed to have sold 1 million quite a while ago.



I really wonder if Nintendo will be aggressive this holiday season or not. Switch will be only 100$ less than the PS5 DE and the same price as the Series S which is CRAZY to think about. They did a MK8 bundle last year with the same price tag, i think they might do the same but for 250$ and we will definitely have a price cut next year i think around March.
