Why is MDSHRmT so expensive? it's like phone graphics

Probably because Konami is evil.

Switch is hitting the ground running in 2021. I'm looking forward to seeing how much of a lead it can get over 2020 before March where it should start having trouble outselling 2020.

PS5 still tracking below the comparable week for the PS4 (https://www.gematsu.com/2014/04/media-create-sales-4714-41314). Like Rol said in the previous thread, they should have delayed the launch if that's all they could spare for Japan.

Great win for Switch compared to last year.
Now that stock seems to no longer be a big issue for Switch it will probably settle into a relatively stable baseline in the coming weeks, unlike last year. Will be very interesting to see what that ends up being.



Major Switch Titles Launch Aligned

2021 predictions:

  • Switch - 27m
  • PS5 - 15.5m
  • Xbox Series - 10m

What's up with Xbox? Low stock? i know xbox is barely a thing in Japan, but 100 units per week is less than what One was selling at its time, while the launch was not that bad (25k)

There has not been any restock for Xbox so far. These are the last remains of the initial shipment.

Software drop but overal very good week. Full top 10 NSW and up from last year.

Pocky Lover Boy!

March is Animal Crossing in 2020. But it gets MonHun in 2021. But MonHun is probably more frontloaded, still that means March and April probably still goes to 2021.
