Miles Morales tanked on both systems, really thought there was more hype, it's probably just in japan tho even tho the first spiderman did pretty well.Next week for Switch should be pretty big. Age of Calamity release + Ring Fit Switch bundle.

Technically Miles Morales is a smaller add-on type of game, a bit like Torna: the Golden Country or Uncharted Lost Legacy if you prefer. So even with Spiderman's popularity, I wouldn't expect it to break any type of record here.

I mean they marketed it has it's own thing and specified it wasn't a DLC unlike Torna which literally is but got a physical release. With the hype Miles morales is getting lately with the movies and comics i really thought this would perform better than that.

It's pretty clear that next week it will be all Switch again. Pretty much unstoppable in the face of new consoles. Contrary to what some people thought would be the end of the Switch. Anyway, the real killer here is Animal Crossing, still selling like mad.

Who expected the PS5 to be the end of the Switch in Japan? Please point them out so we can all point and laugh.



270K units for Pikmin 3, that's really sweet. Are Japanese players planning to use their PS5s as media players? The fact that only one game broke in the top 10 and with low amount of units hurts to see. Or maybe they went digital, that should be it.

Id say its a combo of digital sales plus we'll likely see quite a few PS5 titles in the top 30.

Sakuna and Kingdom Hearts selling higher on Switch, after the former wasn't even going to release on it initially. There's definitely a market for third parties on Switch, contrary to stereotype.

An underwhelming start for next gen consoles in Japan.

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

Can ps5 just play PS4 games like XSeX can for Xbone?



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