Here is the hardware chart:

  1. Switch: 108,375
  2. PS4: 13,281
  3. PS4 Pro: 11,083
  4. New 2DS XL: 6,512

  6. PS Vita: 1,688
  7. 2DS: 952
  8. Xbox One X: 676
  9. Xbox One: 46

We notice that Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are still at the top, but dropped very sharply after their first week on the shelves. The sales of the twin Nintendo games were still good enough to keep Battlefield 5 behind with a sizable margin. As a consequence, the Switch is still a hot commodity, with over 100,000 units sold.

The PS4 is still doing pretty well, especially on the PS4 Pro front, but the true winner of the week is probably Disaster Report 4 Plus: Summer Memories by Granzella, that sold over 40,000 copies despite its niche nature. It even beat Shenmue I& II, which still managed to sell a flattering 37.000 copies. Considering that Japanese gamers tend to snub remasters, this can be considered a successful launch.

If you want to compare, you can check out last week’s results. You can also read how Media Create considered last week’s debut of  Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! partly disappointing.
