Excellent start to March for the PS5 looks like it's going to post an insane quarter.

Metroid did great in Spain, only other numbers for the physical release ive seen are Japan and it's done a lot better here.

Switch still dominating the physical charts. A shame digital numbers aren't often shared.

YoY YTD changes:

NS -24%
PS5 +573%
XS -35%


Surprisingly good for Metroid there. And PS4 for some reason (if you discount the first week of the year it'd actually be up considerably YoY!).

Dayum ! That's a real nice launch for Metroid Prime remastered.

The fact it can post such a good result despite the early digital release ... A real good presage to what's coming with the series in it's next installment!

Metroid really is coming back. It's great to see. MP4 really as a sale potential of 5-10 millions imo.

Don't get me started on the potential MOVIES that could be made with that franchise. I always found the story more compelling than Aliens. I know they are trying again to revive said franchise, but Metroid would be a fresh take on the space horror genre and could honestly do well. 

Metroid had a great launch, but I doubt it will have legs. We'll see. Far from good launch for Wo Long, and seeing Fifa 23 Switch in the list still pisses me off.

Another great week for the PS5, a good one for the Xbox and a meh one for the Switch.

Thank you, polofresco.
