It is common for JRPGs to ship very low stock, because legs are often nonexistent compared with other genres.

But yes, I think SMTV could use another hefty shipment.

That just makes me feel even more sorry for Blue Reflection.

With digital it's most likely the series highest opening.

Most likely, but this certainly was the most expensive game in the series to date and, as far as I know, it was decently publicized over there, and yet it didn't seem to reach too many people outside of the core fanbase. They were probably betting on the West (like most JRPGs nowadays), and well, they caught my attention enough to buy two Premium editions, it had a good opening in the UK, so I'm confident the game will end up doing good. 

We've seen in quite a few examples that this doesn't correlate with much growth in Japan but has a much bigger impact in other markets.

Kind of off topic, but this just reminded me how criminal it is that Yokai Watch 4 didn't come to the west. Would of easily been the biggest entry by a huge margin, especially now that its multiplat (Swicth+PS4). Hopefully they're paying attention to the record sales lots of JRPGs are having in the west. Although I'd prefer to play it on PS5, I'd also take Nintendo exclusively publishing it if its the only way to get it over.

SMTV is pretty poor with the Switch install base taken in account. Maybe Pokemon did have an effect.

Speaking of Pokemon it has to do some heavy lifting compared to Age of Calamity in the next few weeks.

PS5 desperately needs stock, and PS4 won't make 9.5m after all.

I don't know what that mostly black bar means, but I know it looks a lot like the bar next to Ring Fit Adventure.  I'm guessing that it somehow communicates stock left available?



Interesting to see Story of Seasons back in the top 30.

That second tweet especially is very interesting, xbox one shipment figures are a rarity, even if that is just an estimate.



My Xbox Series S is my baby.

I would really like to know what their sources are for the XBO and Forza Horizon 4 numbers.



What ever their source is the numbers are very close to what VGC have.

Not much left in terms of releases until the end of the year, Power Pro Kun Pocket R & GTA Trilogy are the highest profile games left for third parties

The main thing to wait for is the official Famitsu Top 100 which should provide an update for a lot of games that continued to sell outside of the Top 30. With this week's numbers we got an update about Olive Town which is now at 309K sales compared to 281K when it last charted in the Top 30. Especially during the holidays lesser evergreens can sell upwards of 50K units in late November/December without making the Top 30. 



Good debut for SMTV, i think it's strenght will be it's NA and Europe numbers compare to previous episodes.
