Soul Hackers did horrible?






Around the Network

Amazing week for the Switch. Never underestimate the power of Splatoon.



Im sure Switch numbers will be above 90k for the rest of the year

+2.5 million in total by Dec 31st



Switch has built up a buffer of almost a million against 2019 YTD, hopefully enough to counterbalance that year having both the system's first mainline Pokemon and the Lite in the back half.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

2019 is not getting close to 2022. 2022 is going to sell a few hundred thousand over it in total sales for the year. 2022 is at 2977k currently with 16 weeks left. We have to see how much over 4500k 2022 will be. 2022 will sense 3rd best year.

There is a possibility of near 200k happening next week in sales alone for example

The Switch version of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure has 80-100% sellthrough, the PS4 version has 60-80% and the PS5 version has only 40-60% sellthrough.

Thank you for posting this.  It's pretty clear that 2022's Q3 is going to easy beat 2021's Q3.  I think it's pretty obvious that it's going to come below 2020's Q3 as well.  The real question is if 2022 can beat 2019's Q3.  A few weeks ago, I would have said no way, because that is when the Switch Lite released.  However, Splatoon 3 is a monster and Nintendo seems to have taken care of it's supply issues for the OLED.  

It looks like 2022 has a good shot at having the second best Q3 for Switch.
