Why is Xbox selling?

The South Park amusement park effect, I have this amazing amusement park...and you can't come.  Both consoles can't keep up with demand.



Around the Network

Top 3 Games 2021:

  1. [NSW] Monster Hunter Rise (Capcom) - 2.265.122
  2. [NSW] Momotaro Dentetsu (Konami) – 1.000.877
  3. [NSW] Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury- 784.047

Momotaro becomes the second game to surpass 1 million physical this year in Japan. 



All NSW top ten despite FFVIIR's second week (Japan doesn't get the free upgrade for the PS5 from what I've heard which is an odd choice), GBG and RFA are the most unorthodox chart leaders anyone could have imagined years back.



It won't be until the end of August before something more interesting happens. As previously mentioned, the ups and downs of 2020 during summer due to sellouts and restocks is likely to make the year over year comparisons go back and forth between wins and losses for 2021, so the YTD lead isn't going to move much.

There have been no news for the Switch revision, but at least we got another holiday title with good sales potential confirmed (Mario Party). But if I only look at what we'll get until the end of September, then 2021's YTD lead is likely to decline to below 200k. So without a hardware revision landing in 2021, this year's full 12 months may only be marginally better than last year's.

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

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Shipments

Xbox Series is doing good. If it keeps going like that, it could outsell the Xbox One in Japan by a wide margin.



Around the Network

For those that see the recent uptick in Xbox series sales, there was a recent IGN article that talks about it. Interesting that the article notes that the Series S is in higher demand, but the last two weeks the Series X has been the primary cause of the increase in sales.

All NSW top ten despite FFVIIR's second week (Japan doesn't get the free upgrade for the PS5 from what I've heard which is an odd choice), GBG and RFA are the most unorthodox chart leaders anyone could have imagined years back.

Do you by any chance have a link or anything for that?  The only thing I have seen on it was the PS+ version is the only one not getting the free upgrade.

It's only 100 yen (90 cents) so it doesn't really matter much.

The free upgrade is Worldwide.

Japan do get free upgrade and I just checked my JP PSN just to make sure
