At this point it may be a choice to begin the process of readying a new Tomodachi given the insane popularity it has in both Japan and Europe

Has Sony stopped producing the PS4 Pro? Its percentage of overall PS4 sales has gone down steadily the past few weeks, and only sold 165 (~4% of total) this week. I wonder if this is happening globally or just in Japan?

Yeah, as far as I know, both the Pro and the One X got axed to make space on the production lines for the PS5 and XSX respectively.



Switch sells 100k+ without really trying.  I hope this means that weekly shipments have increased to Japan.  Guess I'll have to watch the next couple of weeks and see.



imagine if ea actually put effort into the switch version if fifa, it would have the potential to sell pretty well.



A substantial year over year gain this week makes the YTD lead approach 1.5m again.

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

Love the Fifa sales figures in Japan, I wished they were the same all over the the world.

The One X was officially discontinued but I didn't hear anything about PS4 Pro doing the same. It would make sense though as they'd obviously rather people buy a PS5.



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

i mean most SMART people who'd want a ps4pro at THIS point would probably hold off untill the ps5, its only a mounth away, not like, 6 moths.
