Wasn't expecting much for Torna due to Expansion Pass, but still a little bit sad it didn't even do 10k. Nice numbers for Steins;Gate Inferior, surprise split is even between PS4 and Switch.

I suppose it's because the bonus content for PS4 Steins;Gate version is more attractive than the Switch one.

Interesting that 2-5 are basically within 200 units of each other.

Bummer for Torna, would’ve hoped the cheaper price would off set that it’s DLC. Maybe the expansion pass makes up for it.

Sales keep dropping for consoles which isn’t great. Hopefully they pick up in a few weeks

Miles better than I expected for Steins;Gate and a lot worse than I expected for Atelier. Huh. Wonder if Gust will remaster Dusk given the games have even less pill than Arland.

At this point not making a Switch version of these type of games is just leaving money on the table. Vita does not have the pull it once had.
Vita definitely has less pull than it did, but it also has the far superior version of S;G too :P

Barely 500 units in the UK and now 5.700 in Japan for the physical edition of Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna - The Golden Country, it was morel limited than I expected.

Vita up almost 50% WoW! You know what this means...
Yes. Vita means death. :P

Love how every time Sony announces one of their consoles is to be discontinued, you see a spike in sales. You generally don't see much of anything with Nintendo consoles, in comparison. Granted, it's rather subdued for PSV here, and we kinda know why.

I suppose it's because the bonus content for PS4 Steins;Gate version is more attractive than the Switch one.
You don't get me there. Usually, split for such releases is (almost) always in favour of PS4 by a clear margin, but here sales are pretty much even. That's what I find surprising, because I was expecting Switch sales to be lower than that.

PS4 sales are really bad this year, 3DS is dead and PSV is a rotten corpse.
NSW is doing 37k, absolutely nothing amazing, and that's 50% more of all the other platform combined.

Holiday season can't come soon enough, hardware sales this year have been real rough in Japan.

I'm not shocked at the Torna numbers. Once I saw it didn't even rank in the top 30 on the eShop nearly a week after release, I knew it wasn't gonna do any numbers. Not that the eShop is the greatest indicator of physical sales success, but if a game does poorly on the eShop, it definitely isn't making a dent at retail.
I wonder if they will go past the first print with numbers like that.

Spiderman continuing to sell well.
Steins;gate selling similar numbers between both ps4 and switch platforms.
Splatoon 2 and other evergreens continuing to move their numbers.
Torna with a smaller opening, but somewhat expected with its limited release.
Atelier with a weak opening.

Both switch and ps4 hardware seeing a slight decline. Hopefully they see a rise in the coming weeks as the holiday shopping begins.

Spiderman continues to perform very well. Another thing to note, Minecraft is likely to pass over 300k physical sales on Switch next week. I wonder what the numbers for it will be after holiday season.

Wow such a small platform gap for Steins;Gate. I guess that's encouraging for displaced Vita users who were in handheld VN limbo.

Spidey legs keeping up! 300k seems to be a lock. Very solid performance for a western-developed PS4 exclusive. Good for Insomniac.

Otherwise, hardware is dad. Software is Switch evergreens and ZzZz. 75% drop for Lara, the whole world is doing her dirty.
