Splatoon still killing it.

Switch Lite numbers are horrible. What happened?

PS5 with a nice shipment boost. Horizon profiting off bundurus.

Xbox with a nice five digit hold, likely still due to that 5000 Yen promotion. Series X almost doesn't exist, though.

Massive drop for Dragon Quest. Oof.

Switch Lite numbers have been horrible for 18 months. IMO it is too expensive for the value it offers.

Japan gets a boost and last week seemed like europe saw a bit of a decrease with drops(just anectode). Considering europe getting fifa bundles wouldn't be surprised if japan sees a big decrease this week again. Still need to get to a point where they can supply all countries with good stock.

Where and how the hell are these PS5's being bought? Almost 30K this week and no retailer has them when asked, and told to look and apply in that lottery bullshit which you won't win?

Seriously, how do you get a PS5 or Series X in Japan?

Its more like the OG Switch makes far more sense to buy given what it provides. Against forum's "good sense", japanese like playing it as a home console, just like they like playing it as a handheld console. And being a hybrid is far more entaicing than just having a handheld console.

I'd bet now stock will be better tbh. Sony is getting better at shipping those units.

Series S must be enticing a lot of new users into the Xbox ecosystem.
These past 2 weeks Series S had a huge promo in Japan. That's why the big increase. Let's so what happens next week. Clearly it's working.

You have to speak to Jin Ryogashi, head of Playstation Japan

I think it makes a good companion console to the Switch. Different library and or better quality versions if you want to play on TV plus gamepass, it makes sense with this deal.
 
I still can't believe that the Switch is still selling on average 100,000 units per week, since everyone and their grandmas should already have one by now!
