Around the Network

More than 90% of software sold on Switch, that's massive!



Signature goes here!

Botw still top 20 while 3D Zelda games weren't big there before... amazing.



Pokemon...keeping the Japanese video game market afloat with about 31% of the sold software of all systems physical games.



The first 4 together sold about as much as the 96 following taken together.

I don't see a Pro nor a Switch 2 until sales cool off. Nintendo is just doing so well.



i7-13700k

Vengeance 32 gb

RTX 4090 Ventus 3x E OC

A comparison with last year would be nice :).






Numbers 49 and 51 are the same.



OP you have Dragon Quest XI S on there twice at #49 and #51
