180k is a mental amount.



Will we have full numbers today or will we have to wait til tomorrow?

Good to see Metroid sold well.

Should be today, usually starts coming out between 9:00 and 10:00 US Eastern time Thursday (so within an hour from now).

Lower than the Switch Lite launch which did 250k, but that can be explained by both lower price and Links Awakening launch.

Switch Lite Launch week did 250k in Japan and 590k globally.

Think the OLED boost might be bigger in the west than the Lite boost though so despite Japan sales being significantly lower I think globally switch can beat 590k for OLED launch week comfortably.

Great launch for Metroid Dread. Good launch for the OLED, it's going to be interesting to see the split between OG/Lite/OLED as the release boost wears down.



Signature goes here!

Ugh a little bit of disappointment with the OLED sales, was expecting way more



"Quagmire, are you the type of guy who takes 'no' for an answer ?"
"My lawyer doesn't allow me to answer that question"

PSN ID: skmblake | Feel free to add me

Smash got a bigger boost than the other games due to the Sora reveal.

With digital Metroid Dread should definitely be over 100k, which is amazing.
It'll top Fusion with ease.
The OLED launch is a bit lower than I expected but still very good.

Also great to see Doki Doki in the top 10, great game.
