But PS4 games aren't showing up in the rankings either...

Trying to sell them for twice the cost.

I'd figure most of them are just playing their old PS4 library on it.

That, or the bundle PS4 games you get for subscribing to PS+ on the PS5



The "big new Switch holiday title" Hyrule Warriors is not even in the Top 10. Also Mario Kart Live is missing. Switch is selling with evergreens and Momotaro.

Xbox Series seems to have stock issus...

Switch down YoY means that 30M in this calendar year should be out of reach. Maybe US and Europe are doing better than JP.



So, Switch down YoY, the cliff is here! (-:

On a serious note, sales will probably rise with the release of Monster Hunter, which is why Capcom calls it MonHun Rise.

It also could mean, that Nintendo might drop a new model next year, to reverse the trend. Together with new big software (BOTW2) that might do the trick.

PS5 is up week over week, but still with bad numbers. I assume one decent shipment and it is no longer supply constraint. Could burn some scalpers.

3DS and XB1 are essentially over.

EDIT: Cyberpunk dropped instantly out of the TOP 10.

PS Plus collection may be playing a role here.

Curious if Sony regrets that now
