Clever Capcom.

And MHR did similar numbers compared to MHW, interesting.

I was just about to post this. I wouldn't put this past Capcom with their stated goals for digital software sales.

PS4 -1



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

Okay, we got 50K PS5's this week and only two PS4 games and zero PS5 games. What the hell are PS5 owners in Japan even playing right now?

Also lol no Balad Wonderworld. 



The Quintessential Quintuplets ∬ not allowing Switch to get dat 30 out of 30

Bravely Default 2 free fallling as expected

PS4 -1

When having domination like this? I never see this. Not for a long time. 

How many weeks is almost NSW software? Neither NES, I think, have this market domination.

PS4 -1

Nintendoeverything made a typo. The second " SD Gundam G Generation Cross Rays Platinum Edition" is actually the PS4 version.

Damn only 1 away from a clean sweep again. Will it happen next week?



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

Next week will probably have switch outselling the week last year. And MHR will probably have some great legs as well. But can someone tell me why people in Japan are buying ps5s? I'm happy for the PS4 but I can't remember any PS5 game selling well. Is it future-proofing or something?

The same reason people buy it in other reagions: brand power. The basic brand promis of Playstation is: it eventually will have games. That was true for the early adopters of PS3 and PS4 as well, so the promise is unbroken and the brand has trust.

Yeah, sometimes I think publishers want to push us towards preordering or digital (or best of all: preordering digital).

But to be fair, Capcom couldn't deliver more than retailers would take. And retailers have a risk if they overstock a game and can't get rid of that for months.

true.

.... that being said the PS brand's image has been pretty greatly tarnished by what sony's been doing to the vita and VN games recently
