i mean, at least we have the numbers for japan already. and the result is.... barely outselling the switch in the same week

Sure the sold out low volume of PS5 in Japan tell the whole story, then Series X bombed, right?

Of course not. The point is that saying "We sold everything." doesn't actually tell us anything without knowing how much 'everything' actually is.

Totally agree, and will wait for numbers (and the pace of sales until the end of the year) before making any conclusion.

Of course the XSX|S bombed in Japan. How can that even be up for discussion.



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

It sold out and close to previous systems, so I wouldn't say it bombed. It done as expected

Guess the question is how many did they produce and manage to ship out n time or launch?

Whatever it was, it wasn't near enough.

Either too cheap or too little production.
