It’s funny to see Mario Party after the discussion in last weeks thread lol.
Fantastic hold for switch, pretty good drop for Pokémon (interested in digital drop).

Excellent Switch sales. It's great that 3rd party support of the platform is paying off so well for them.

Holy mother of holds. Switch is going to slay these weeks.

Imagine if RFA had a proper stock.

The fact OG Switch is already outselling the lite again still close to Pokémon seals the deal. I was expecting the lite to be on top for a while but nope.

I know you were being ironic but if you take the "them" in "is paying off so well for them" as Nintendo, then yes I do feel the kind of 3rd party support Switch did get did help Switch sell even more.

With the current horrible PS4 performance, how high can it even go once holiday actually hits ?
Will PS4 top 50k in like week 50-52 ?

Sony really needs to get the PS5 out fast. The brand is loosing mindshare quickly.
FFVIIR should do insanely well in picking up interest, no? And the PS5 being the all-mighty unbelievable step forward it's supposed to be should be in a whole different stratosphere than what you can get on the Switch (4k, HDR, 120fps, Ray Tracing, next level SSD, etc, etc), so I bet it'll pick up the slack really fast (well by the first price reduction and must have AAA game anyway).

I may be wrong, but isn't Japan slower to adopt new consoles as well? With a higher price and limited launch titles they would really be facing an uphill battle.
Well they are slow to adopt new Sony consoles.
Switch performed pretty fast out of the gate.

But with the higher Competition(Switch) and probably a high price at launch PS5 will have a really rough time at launch.

TBH i would not be surprized if they delay the japanese launch to 2021 so they can focus on Stocking inventory in the West, where initial demand will be much higher.

Packman will probably be closed till then though.

In Japan, though? The highlights of Switch third party have been Western games deemed impossible (Witcher 3, Doom, Wolfenstein II, Outer Worlds), all of which have preciously little mindshare in Japan. The lowlight, on the other hand, is the loss of a major Japanese franchise that will be not be discussed today, along with quite a bit of apathy especially from Bandai Namco with regards to their major franchises.

I don’t think the jump in graphics quality will help. It’s not like PS4 games look bad or anything.

PS5 is looking likely to be very expensive which will likely harm it a great deal in it's first few years. That's the biggest worry for it.

I still don't think its fair to always single out Namco on support. If SD Gundam hits 100K, Namco will have the majority of 100K sellers this year. If Namco apathetic, what are other companies?

So Switch realistically has 14+ months of essentially no competition in Japan.

PS5 is going to perform poorly out of the gate. I do think the transition to making games for PS5 will be relatively quick though compared to the last 2 playstation transitions.

Wow, ridiculous hold for Switch hardware. Gonna be really interesting to see what it does throughout the next month.

Also what was the stock situation for Ring Fit? Fully available now, or still limited?

That was one of the best boss fights in any JRPG ever. It had me lying on the floor on my back gasping for air by the time I was done. So good.
