Next week with the OLED launch we can expect that a lot of Switch titles will get a boost and the Top 30 will provide updates to a few evergreens that have dropped out in recent weeks/months. Metroid Dread is heading for a 100K opening, as long as retailers ordered such a launch amount.

Top 10 Publishers:

  1. Nintendo - 6.033.549 (44.9%)
  2. Capcom - 2.812.594 (20.9%)
  3. Konami - 1.470.708 (10.9%)
  4. Pokemon Co - 596.782 (4.4%)
  5. Microsoft - 570.801 (4.2%)
  6. Bandai Namco - 479.051 (3.6%)
  7. Marvelous - 474.728 (3.5%)
  8. Square Enix - 402.163 (3%)
  9. Koei Tecmo - 196.196 (1.5%)
  10. Neos - 183.733 (1.4%)

Regardless of the Lost Judgement launch Sega hasn't been able to make the Top 10 Publishers. With the Demon Slayer launch by Aniplex it's likely that we will see them overtake Neos & Koei Tecmo becoming the 9th best selling publisher of the year in two weeks time.

Pretty sad to see another same day launch fail to surpass the PS4 version, currently a dead console. Maybe quite a few Switches went to China.

04./00. [PS4] Melty Blood: Type Lumina # <FTG> (Delight Works) {2021.09.30} (¥6.800) - 18.833 / NEW <80-100%>

The game was sold out on both the PS4 and Switch launch week, so it's not easy for Switch to surpass PS4 version when there isn't enough supply to do so. It's still not restocked but the usual pattern will happen with digital versions selling strong due to lack of physical stock.

I'm not sure what you mean about artificial hardware sales, but I also think that digital cannot be discounted. The Wii U as a platform did not have strong digital sales, but the PS4 (and subsequently the PS5) do. That said, even if digital/physical is a 50/50 split, the PS5 is still underperforming. 

In JP, digital/physical is a 40/60 split at best if you're really, really, really lucky.

Yeah, I'm not trying to say they are 50/50, just if they were it still looks a bit bad. I'm not really sure how to change the way I wrote it to convey what I'm trying to say without confusion lol



Can't wait for next week's numbers.
There's still a global chip crunch happening so the supply may not be available to fully meet demand, but hopefully we get some juicy big numbers.



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

With Kuro no Kiseki selling out at least 80% of its initial stock it its release week at least it shouldn't hit too low in the bargain bins.

Any inclination how many Oleds Nintendo are shipping next week in Japan? Vgchartz database says the week Switch Lite released in Japan the NSW family sold 230K backed up by 189K the next week then things settled back to 84K the week after that. This could give us an indication of what to expect.



200k Switch next week? 300k?? With how low Switch sales have been trending the past few months you gotta figure there's a few hundred thousand Japanese who will pick up the OLED over the first week or two.



200K to 300K for the Switch OLED launch in Japan is definitely possible. I could see 700K to 800K worldwide for the week as well.

Id be surprised with anything less than 200k.



tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

I think this shows that the Trails series is going downhill. Yearly releases, lack of Switch version Day 1, waiting so long to build an audience on Switch, and most of all the series since Cold Steel has become so average. IDK why some people still think this series is a great RPG series when the best games are easily the Sky games. The world building in these games aren't that good.
I think it's time to put this series either on hold or completely shelve it.
