    Nintendo Switch <3 can't wait to see Dragon Quest XI sales on the Nintendo Switch…

  • GoldenTriforce

    Splatoon 2 dropped far less than I expected

    • Stuart

      I think for the next few weeks Splatoon 2 will sell around what Switch is selling on hardware. The game can’t sell more because the install base isn’t higher,so I think it will keep selling for new Switch users.

    • GoldenTriforce

      Also Switch doing over 50k is pretty crazy. I guess the shortage is done or at least better over there.

      Great Ace Attorney 2 sales seem subpar though.

  • carlos holguin holguin

    switch is still selling strong!

  • Stuart

    Go go Switch!

  • – green

    Switch has now sold more than the 3DS in Japan with launches aligned according to Media Create – lets hope stock shipments can continue to stay high so it can keep up.

    • Tlozbj

      It is going to be hard to keep up :/ The “August pricecut” approaches for 3DS, so it should push the 3DS ahead again

      • ECM

        It won’t be hard to keep up *if* they can get the stock issues sorted.

        • Tlozbj

          Well true, though on price cut week the 3DS sold around 140k, soo :/ Thoigh to be fair, it did sold 4k the week prior, so those could cancel each other out, and Switch stay ahead if they can ship more than 50k weekly to Japan.

    • StuOhQ

      Up over 40k on the 3DS and the Switch should be able to gain ground next week 🙂

  • nekoknight

    • DrWilly

      Fake*ss numbers

      • Game_God

        I know right, 3DS is over 23M units sold in Japan & SWITCH was at 1,286,000, so with the 62,000 of this week it is at 1,348,000 LTD!
        The New 3DS is at 5,525,000 units…
        Copy pasting is too hard for some people I guess…

        • Or nekoknight could be using Famitsu numbers, which do differ at times.

          • nekoknight

            Nope, I only use Media Create numbers.

          • Oh, heh.

          • nekoknight

            That’s okay. No worries.

        • nekoknight

          This has nothing to do with copying and pasting. Media Create doesn’t keep track of lifetime hardware sales. You can’t go to their website and copy and paste sales numbers that they don’t have. And where did you get those numbers anyways? From NeoGAF? That user’s numbers are incorrect, I’m guessing because he has Famitsu sales accidentally mixed in with Media Create sales. I have been faithfully tracking Media Create sales for years now. I know what I’m doing.

          • ben

            I don’t know if you have a disorder or something.. but you know media create isn’t actually accurate.

          • nekoknight

            Media Create is very accurate, and you are very rude. Comments like that have no place on this site.

          • ben

            your silly little list every week is pointless. Media create is not accurate at all.

          • nekoknight

            Lot’s of people appreciate my list. For their sake, I’ll keep posting it.

          • ben

            Yes, but your list is wrong. You track sales then don’t update them when even media create corrects mistakes you stubbornly continue to use your data.. it is a joke.

          • nekoknight

            I have been faithfully tracking hardware sales from Media Create for years. All I’m doing is adding Media Create’s hardware sales week after week. If you have a problem with my numbers, then your problem is with Media Create, not me. And how does Media Create “correct my mistakes” when they don’t list lifetime hardware sales to begin with?

            The reason I started doing this to begin with was to see how “current” systems are competing with each other. Nintendo stopped manufacturing the original 3DS models, so I don’t track the sales of those models. And most of us know that the 3DS, all models combined, have sold over 20 million units in Japan. The 3DS is king of the Japanese market. It has even outsold lifetime PS2 sales in Japan, but you probably already knew that.

            What? Do you want me to start tracking PS3 sales now? Or XBOX One? I was actually going to stop tracking Wii U sales when Nintendo stopped manufacturing the console, but other people on the site asked me to continue tracking them to see how long it takes the SWITCH to pass it up.

            I don’t know why other sites may have different numbers than mine, I suspect it is because they are using both Media Create and Famitsu sales data, but I don’t know for sure. But don’t assume that just because other sites have different numbers means that their numbers are “right” and my numbers are “wrong.”And no, I most certainly do not go to NeoGAF. And I don’t treat Media Create as God, either. You really need to let this go.

            Please do not respond to my comment.

      • nekoknight

        My numbers are not fake. I’ve been tracking Media Create hardware sales for years now.

    • StuOhQ

      Nekoknight can you include the 3DS numbers for reference? I’m not really concerned with how the New 3DS sold exclusively.

      Maybe even combine 2DS and 3DS (as you’ve done for the PS4).

      • nekoknight

        The reason I don’t list 3DS numbers is because I simply don’t know what they are. But overall, the 3DS, all models combined, have sold over 20 million units in Japan.

    • ben

      You know they don’t sell the original ps4 anymore.. right? so you should remove all the sales of that from your numbers and only include sales of the slim. so it is around 2 million.

      • Eagle367

        That wouldn’t be too much fun now would it

        • ben

          It would be honest. I don’t understand their logic for not using a published sales figure for 3ds.

      • nekoknight

        No I did not. I didn’t even know there was a PlayStation 4 Slim. Media Create doesn’t mention anything about a Slim model, just the Pro. In any case, I was going to list PS4 and PS4 Pro sales separately at first, but I made a mistake calculating months ago and I realized that I accidentally combined the two. But instead of going back and recounting all the numbers from the beginning, I added an asterisk to let people know that the numbers combine both models.

        • ben

          Then you messed up. The slim released in September last year. I suggest if you are being honest you should try going back and you will see when it launched. The slim is basically the same as the new 3ds so you should have tracked it accordingly. Your figures for ps4 are pretty worthless what with people upgrading to slims.

          • GoldenTriforce

            The PS4 slim is just referenced to as the PS4 in Japan at least. People just add on the Slim. It’s more of a redesign and less a new model.

          • ben

            it has a lot of differences from the launch ps4! Not just redesign. Parts were totally changed.

          • nekoknight

            But Media Create doesn’t list the sales of just the Slim model. How can I track sales of the Slim model when Media Create doesn’t give any numbers to track them with?

    • uh why includes Pro sales for PS4 but don’t for all 3DS.
      Stupid post

      • nekoknight

        I’ve already answered this question many times before. Why must I answer the same question over and over and over again? The reason why I don’t list sales figures for the original 3DS models is because I simply don’t know what the sales figures are. And in order to find out, I would have to spend hours sifting through countless archived Media Create articles dating all the way back to March of 2011 – and I just don’t have time to do that. But if it makes you feel any better, know that the all 3DS models combined have sold over 20 million units in Japan. The 3DS is king of the Japanese market.

        • either they are available on the Vita boards of gamefaqs media create thread everyweek

          • nekoknight

            Well then, you can get your sales information from Vita boards or gamefaqs.

  • awng782

    Great Ace Attorney 2 had the worst debut in the franchise in nearly a decade 🙁

    Switch stock is holding up really well 3 weeks after Splatoon’s launch. Next week should see significant increases in hardware sales across the board thanks to the summer holidays.

    • Tlozbj

      It really isn’t a surprised :/ Capcom made it clear that the full story would be a trilogy, and so 2 would just end in another cliffhanger. The majority of people would probably just wait till the 3rd game releases to buy them all, or wait for a collection

  • TimG57867

    Wow. Look at all those older 3DS games with legs! Clearly we have the 2DS LL explosion last week to thank. Hey! Pikmin is doing alright as well for what it is.

  • awng782

    19. [3DS] Mario Kart 7 – 2,823 / 2,799,235

    Jesus…even after the release of Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, this game will never die.

    • nekoknight

      Blessed be His Holy Name.

  • Ser2k2

    Nintendo Switch is selling well.

  • ben

    The difference between Media create numbers and famitsu numbers is becoming pretty huge.

    https://www.famitsu.com/biz/ranking/

    • Gregory Weagle

      I don’t know if it’s how these two report numbers or what they count. Maybe someone with knowledge on how these two report would help me understand the differences, because I cannot tell who’s got the more accurate numbers.

    • Tlozbj

      From what I understand, it mainly is becausw Famitsu, somehow, also counts digital download cards, while MC doesn’t. Though MC does count sales from Amazon Japan, which Famitsu doesn’t

      Though MC is usually seen as the most reliable of the two

      • no it the other way around. Famitsu counts download nad amazon japan.
        Media Create doesn’t. If Media Create counts Amazon JP sales then it would be higher than Famitsu numbers for hardware sold which its not.

        • Tlozbj

          From what I’ve heard the one that counts Amazon is Media Create, not Famitsu.

          Unless Famitsu overtracks, which usually happens

      • ben

        I was talking about hardware sales.

        • Tlozbj

          The usual is that Famitsu overtracks or undertracks and in following weeks they either put the hardwares way higher or way lower than what they should be to compensate for it

  • Interestingly, people tend to like combining the sales of console families; some do this inconsistently, but people have been for PS4 and Pro to show that it’s ahead of the Switch. But even combined, they’re lower now.

    This interests me because this is only the second week of DQ’s release, and the 3DS version of the game is still selling 10k more (and the drop rate between the two versions is 6% difference). I m very curious to see how other big titles will perform for the PS4; VII has nostalgia to carry it, so will it outperform XV, even if it’s in parts?

    Also going to be interesting to see how some of the classically Sony titles perform on the Switch now. (Atelier, right now.)

  • awng782

    Splatoon 2 will reach 1 million copies sold in Japan alone (physical + digital) at the same time it took the first Splatoon to sell 1 million copies worldwide.

  • PlaySaviour4

    Meanwhile globally Sony dominated the game console hardware, software, and service market in 2016, capturing a total of 57 percent share, or $19.7 billion of spending by gamers, according to market researcher IHS Markit.

    Sony is expected to continue this run in 2017 with overall sales expected to rise above $20 billion thanks to growth of digital console games. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/990eeb474fb9b8f6a0c14cf8ee655765116bf92024a02cf030158adcf17f93d0.png

    • RoadyMike

      k.

    • lol no

    • Tlink7

      Oh, a console that launched years ago has more units sold than a console that is five months old. What a shocker.
      You must also have literally no life, seeing as you are posting a ridiculous amount of Sony adverts on a Nintendo website. I pity you

      • PlaySaviour4

        No worries I am just trying to help the needy.

        • Tlink7

          The needy?

          • PlaySaviour4

            Yes.

          • Tlink7

            Mind elaborating, monsieur?

      • PlaySaviour4

        Look again at the graph. That is just for 2016. LoL
        Read carefully buddy.

        • Tlink7

          They didn’t get all of their market share in just 2016. Even if they did, a year is not the same time span as half a year.
          Think carefully, friend :3

      Say, what are you hoping to achieve by posting this stuff on a Nintendo website?

      • PlaySaviour4

        It has Nintendo stuff in it too.

        • Busterblade

          That doesn’t tell me what you’re hoping to achieve, it only explains your reasoning as to why you’re posting it in the first place.

      • PlaySaviour4

        To help inform people about the video game industry

        • Busterblade

          And the way you’re doing it, as well as the place you’re posting it, doesn’t make you wonder if people will take kindly to the way you’re doing it, let alone whether they’ll care?

          • PlaySaviour4

            By the replies I got, it’s obvious that they care.

          • Busterblade

            I’m sure you’re well aware you’re basically instigating angry reactions from people, by posting Sony centric figures, flaunting their “sales superiority” while pointing Nintendo’s “being bad and doing bad” on a Nintendo centric site.

            So what do you get out of this?

          • Hidden Flare

            I mean… You publish a sales chart of Sony (again with their console that offers more mostly because its been out a lot longer) and attack Nintendo with their console (that has been out a lot less then sony’s) while also praising Sony and ‘subtly’ attack Nintendo… All of that on a nintendo site. Not to insult my fellow nintendo fans here but what did you expect? Of course they will likely defend nintendo and how you put off your info wrong. What diid you really expect? I just can’t help but get the feeling you just wanted to be cheap and annoy some nintendo fans. I see you’re a sony/playstation fan and there’s nothing wrong with that (in fact I own a playstation and play a few games on there from time to time), but why bother coming to a site when you seem like you don’t like the company at all (least thats what I get the impression).

            Got anything to say that could really change my impression? If you don’t then I have nothing else to really say.

          • PlaySaviour4

            Attack Nintendo?
            These facts attack no one.
            I expect Nintendo fans to be polite ladies and gentlemen.

          • Busterblade

            So, do tell, how are people who enjoy Nintendo to take you flaunting Sony’s sales over Nintendo’s? Basically pulling away the attention of Nintendo Switch doing great, and putting them on Sony’s sales.

            How is one to take ” Nintendo’s 3DS platform (and its variants, such as the 2DS) was a distant third on the list with $2.6 billion of market value or 8 percent share of the market.” your subtle hints do not go unnoticed “distant” third eh?

            Drop your facade, it’s insulting.

          • PlaySaviour4

            Wow, what is this negative attitude you guys have?
            I heard Nintendo games were supposed to be family friendly.
            Why are you guys so uptight?

          • Busterblade

            “I heard Nintendo games were supposed to be family friendly.” Because lo and behold, we’re talking Nintendo games here aren’t we? No we’re not, stop trying to justify your utter silliness by using stuff that isn’t even remotely related.

            “Why are you guys so uptight?” How would you respond if all of the Nintendo site people came in on a Sony related site, and started posting numbers of whenever the Switch did a ton better than PS4, hm? And don’t bother to give one of your “holier than thou” answers on that one, since I don’t care to hear it.

            “Wow, what is this negative attitude you guys have?” You guys? You’re talking to me, and hence your responses are responded to by me, leave others out of this unless they want to discuss along, then you can use “you guys”. And no, it’s not a negative attitude, but if you still can’t see how you’re raining on people’s parades, then I’ve nothing left to tell you.

          • PlaySaviour4

            “So, do tell, how are people who enjoy Nintendo to take you flaunting Sony’s sales over Nintendo’s?”

            Not flaunting anything. Just sharing a bird’s eye view of how Japanese sales fit in the global picture of the gaming industry as a whole.

            Be happy that over all console is doing great globally against the doom and gloom predictions that mobile gaming will put an end to console gaming by this year.

            Like Jack Tretton said, “PlayStation is that rising tide that lifts all boats. :-)”

            Nintendo benefits on PS4’s success today as traditional console gaming is still very much alive today.
            And that is a very positive thing to have.

          • RoadyMike

            I guess people would rather see Nintendo News instead of general gaming news; especially when it’s not general, but just Playstation’s numbers, who are the direct competition and “enemy” fanbase
            I guess they just find it irrelevant in the direct, short term sense. Which IS irrelevant on a Nintendo news site

            Anyway, I’m glad Playstation is doing well. Sony’s been in the red for years so them catching a break is good I guess

          • Busterblade

            So you use another’s opinion to justify said flaunting? Look, you can change it around all you want, that won’t change what it actually is.

            Oh really, Nintend benefits on Sony’s success? And if Nintendo never dragged the industry out of the slump Atari dumped it in, then Sony would’ve never gotten the chance to benefit on anything.

            “Be happy that over all console is doing great globally against the doom and gloom predictions that mobile gaming will put an end to console gaming by this year.”

            You know there are many people who just want to be happy Nintendo is doing well again, throwing the competition’s numbers in their face, especially when one considers the whole “console war” thing, is like asking to be mobbed.

          • PlaySaviour4

            “You’re taunting by using the “opposition’s” numbers ”

            These is no opposition.

            I do not believe in console wars, my friend.

            PlayStation and Nintendo have very different markets.

            Tell me… what beef has Kratos with Kirby today?

          • Busterblade

            Hah, you don’t make a very compelling argument by using words as “distant” to denote how Nintendo is doing, drop the facade already.

            There is no opposition? That’s the most deluded word I’ve heard all day today. You can’t say that, while “This is how you dominate ladies and gentlemen- PlayStation Style.” that perches by your own hand on the same page, man, you’re basically igniting a fire with that one.

            Also, let me inform you, since you definitely seem to have missed that, there’s some rumours circulating about Sony having a Dragon Quest deal, as well as paying off Capcom for Monster Hunter World.

            Then lastly, what makes you think people WANT to see those graphs here? I’m 100% sure they’d visit a website with “Sony is doing so incredibly well! See here just how well!” in the title.

            Cheer up, buddy. Stop dwelling on negative stuff. Be positive and live a happy life.

        Hello, how is your friend Dobby Potter doing?

  • PlaySaviour4

    The PS4 was responsible for $17.8 billion of sales value, or 51 percent share of the total console hardware market with Microsoft’s Xbox One at $9.1 billion and a 26 percent share. Nintendo’s 3DS platform (and its variants, such as the 2DS) was a distant third on the list with $2.6 billion of market value or 8 percent share of the market.

      ok

    This is how you dominate.

      Except at least as of as recently as June, Nintendo had a higher net value than Sony Global, and going by some brief numbers, if Switch had the Stock available, its sales woulda been taking PS4s equivalent global sales head on

      • PlaySaviour4

        Right, Microsoft net value of is $ 559 B which is 10 times that of Sony (and Nintendo combined) doesn’t do nothin’ to PlayStation’s relative dominance for three generations since the original Xbox. Try harder, buddy.

        • heavenshitman1

          Its a loose term of dominance at least for Sony global.
          Talking bout Playstation, well Vita is dead, DS’s crushed PSP, Wii outsold PS3, and Switch in light of stock issues is still challenging (not necessarily beating) PS4’s numbers, seemingly outmatching XB1 equivalent sales.
          Dominating just isn’t quite an accurate word

          • PlaySaviour4

            Where did you get all that from the graph I posted? This is why its senseless and very difficult to have a decent conversation with Nintendo fanboys.
            They are in constant denial. inside their Neverland mid ranch suffering from Peter Pan Syndrome.
            Try to get out and live in the real world for once.
            PlayStation was created to keep Judas Greedtendo and Microsoft Monsanto’s attempt at industry monopoly on check.

            Thank heavens for the creation of PlayStation.

            Are you actually trying to have a decent convo with anyone here? Seems like you are just bragging and being a douche bag to me.

          • PlaySaviour4

            So stating statistics is bragging to you?
            That is just sad.
            Do facts offend you?
            I am just putting things in real perspective.
            Did not mean to hurt your feelings.

          • heavenshitman1

            Its those that ignore Nintendo that are in denial. Just Google search these details, most of what I just said is common knowledge. You’re deranged not to even be thoroughly aware of most those facts.
            I didn’t declare Nintendo better than Sony to you, but where you declare dominance, the facts are that PS4 is the one and only device floating pretty much all Sony.

            Nintendo is worth more (and M’soft’s value isn’t from the gaming business, it’s other business), NES mini was a sell out, SNES mini was a sellout, 3DS/2DS tend to win grand total sales, Amiibo have been near sellouts for sometime time no, Switches 1st party games are (comparitively, there is a 12x install base diff) selling better than PS4 flagship titles.

            Explain in detail where the ‘domination’ is

          • Ray01X

            It’s in his delusional Sony fanboy mind. lol

            2 of your links look like they’re referring to the same case, and the latest of your links relates to a 15 year old story.

            This didn’t take me 30 secs to find
            https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/www.gamespot.com/amp-articles/sony-might-owe-you-money-heres-why/1100-6441109/

            Maybe Sony goers are supporting a much larger screwloose company?

            What about Sony having its entire customer bases personal name and account details breached on there network? Think that was only the last year or 2.

            PSN price rises, anti Cross play, suicided their Vita (little better than a WiiU scenario).

            I don’t think Sony’s a holy grail. Nintendo have been in the buusiness probably around 15 years longer, a lot more time to rack up red flags

          • PlaySaviour4

            Nintendo is still doing the same old business practices to this very day.

          • PlaySaviour4

            personal informations compromised are just made up and no proof to back it up

          • Hermione Granger

            enjoy 60$ indie plus HAHAHA

          • PlaySaviour4

            I got iNfamous and Wipeout HD from that ha ha!
            They are still installed in my PS3 to this day.

          • heavenshitman1

            No proof? Wasn’t this a mass story that even Sony apologized for?

          • PlaySaviour4

            do your research more

            Yeah, sorry, maybe you were right. Just found some latest info to back Sony’s domination.
            Switch and DS numbers combined with relative software numbers for both Switch n DS seem to only be slightly crushing Sony in Japan.

            Hmm maybe DS n Switch have been utter failures elsewhere in the world?

    • awng782

      Ahhh…IHS estimates…the same estimates that predicted the Switch would sell 4.7 million units by December 2017, a milestone the Switch actually achieved by June 2017

      • PlaySaviour4

        estimates are educated guesses. PS4 smashes IHS estimates by 2 million units every year.

        • awng782

          I’m not saying the PS4 isn’t successful. I’m saying estimates like these need to be taken with a huge grain of salt.

      • GoldenTriforce

        No offense but I wouldn’t advise using VGchartz. Very inaccurate when compared to official numbers.

    • Hermione Granger

      60%? LMAO 3DS has 80%! buhahaa

  • Pinkie-Dawn

    I was informed by my cousin during the first week of July that Crash outsold BotW. The sales chart contradicts that claim (Crash has sold 30,384 whereas BotW sold 554,123).

    • awng782

      Maybe your cousin was referring to the UK sales numbers, where Crash has outsold every game in 2017 outside of Horizon Zero Dawn, Ghost Recon Wildlands, and GTAV…?

      • Pinkie-Dawn

        Of course, it had to be from the UK, one of Nintendo’s weakest markets.

        • awng782

          Crash has outsold or is on track to outsell Zelda BOTW in quite a few European countries.

          Zelda BOTW will ultimately come out on top thanks to much better sales in North America + Japan, as well as better legs, but Crash has undeniably sold incredibly well outside of Japan.

          • ben

            What else has been released on the ps4 since Horizon? Nothing at all.

          • awng782

            First Party?? Not much other than that and Crash.

            Third Party?? Well…

            Nier Automata
            MLB The Show
            Tom Clancy Ghost Recon Wildlands
            Mass Effect Andromeda
            Persona 5 (in the west)
            Injustice 2
            Prey
            Tekken 7
            etc.

          • ben

            I mean…yeah… apart from Wildlands those are all pretty niche.

          • awng782

            All those games, with the exception of Prey and maybe MLB (given its US-focused demographic), has sold well over 1 million copies worldwide on the PS4 alone.

          • ben

            Hold up… Nier and Persona did half that million sales in Japan. So come on that is hardly a big deal. Doing anything less than a million for most of the titles on the list would be considered a huge failure so it is hardly something to show off about. Injustice, Tekken, Wildlands all had sales targets of over a million anyway.. also.. I would like to see where you have the actual sales for formats.

          • awng782

            Nier and Persona have sold 1 million in the west, without Japan sales.

            I thought this was about whether the PS4 had games, not whether every PS4 release was a big blockbuster.

          • ben

            I don’t think Persona has sold a million in the west.. I don’t think it even charted on the NPD anywhere near the top. And Nier also has not sold as many as units as you think.

            I said what games have released since horizon and you came back with these games of which to a 60 million install base both sold sub a million so less than 1/60 ps4 owners bought these games. Where as crash bandicoot appeal is far broader and casual.

          • awng782

            Persona has shipped 1.8 million copies, with ~600,000 from Japan (It was April’s 2nd best selling game in the US). It is definitely a million seller in the west. Same for Nier Automata, which has sold 1.5 million copies, with ~ 500,000 copies from Japan.

            It’s not like PS4 owners only have those games I listed to choose from. Games like GTAV, NBA 2K, Overwatch, COD Infinite Warfare + BO3, Rainbow Six Siege, Battlefield 1, FIFA 17, etc also continue to sell.

          • ben

            So you think that the whole of Asia didn’t buy any copies of Nier or Persona? Not to mention that 300K of Nier were on steam!

          • awng782

            Asian territories outside of Japan don’t account for that much of the market. Maybe 100,000 each for Persona 5 and Nier Automata.

            PC does account for a decent chunk of sales for Nier, so you are correct on that regard.

            Again, I will repeat, it’s not like PS4 owners only 2017 games to choose from. Games like GTAV, NBA 2K17, Overwatch, COD Infinite Warfare + BO3, Rainbow Six Siege, Battlefield 1, FIFA 17, etc were all released in 2016 or prior and those titles all continue to sell.

          • ben

            I don’t think Overwatch has sold particularly well in 2017. GTAV is an ever green title, I will give you that. However, my point was that there is a huge install base with limited options when it comes to new titles on the PS4. You cant deny this. Bringing up that they could buy old games only supports my argument that Crash has been the only new game ps4 owners have had to be hyped about!

            You understand what I am saying, right? You can counter with niche titles and old games but how is that a counter to hype about a new product with broad appeal?

          • awng782

            Overwatch has been one of the Top 10 selling games in the western markets throughout much of 2017, even without taking digital/Battle.net sales into account.

            I made that list of games that were released on PS4 (from March to June) to demonstrate that there are a great number of new titles coming to the platform. Some of those games sold great (Horizon, Ghost Recon, Crash Trilogy, Injustice 2, Tekken 7), some games sold well for what they were (Nier Automata, Persona 5, MLB The Show), while others didn’t do well at all (Prey).

            In total, over 80 million PS4 games were sold during the first 6 months of 2017. PS4 owners are buying their games, new or old.

  • awng782

    The Switch has a shot at selling another 90,000+ units during this current week thanks to the upcoming Obon holidays.
