Wonder what the lego city splits are. To see if there was holdover from the Wii U.

Also curious about NES, PS, and Xbox sales of course.

So glad Persona did well, easily my GOTY. Do wonder if they feel vindicated for their shitty streaming policies now though, that'd be unfortunate.

Xbox has less presence than Sony this time around (because Sony fixed the wrongs of the ps4 launch wich gave both ms and nintendo a huge boost) and maybe even Nintendo but time will tell.

Stock was so dire last month that Nintendo had to switch to airplane shipment of stock last month due to trouble meeting demand, and finding a Switch in the US right now is like finding a needle in a haystack, fairly so in Japan as well. Europe is the only region that isn't having much issues as of present. I wouldn't be surprised if May numbers see a boost - they obviously did not expect the Switch to sell as well as it did right now.

They have a lot of development options at Bioware, and Andromeda didn't meet critical or financial expectations. It's a shame, but financially it made more sense to put that team to work supporting other games in development rather than greenlighting a sequel straight away.

I think the PS4 fanboys are too busy crying tears of joy at seeing Persona 5 ranked so highly. The JRPG Renaissance is in full swing boys.

I'm not sure ME:A is pulling a profit yet. EA may end up taking a loss on it.

The Switch in its 2nd year will be paramount in determining how well it does. First year seem very solid, but they gotta keep that rolling first party wise next year.

A Pokemon game would be the answer imo.

They'll have a Pokémon, Pikmin, animal crossing, and metroid plus a couple new IPs for their second year. Count on it.

You know that Mass Effect: Andromeda is in its 2nd month and that it's also the #5 best selling game of the year so far while Persona 5 is not even in the Top 10.

That much is clear, though it disappointed me to see them turn For Honor into a MP only game. It was one of my most anticipated games. I just hope they keep releasing SP games, even if they include mp.

It's been a while since I played an AC game. So this might get me to try the series again.

I still don't think releasing Horizon so close to Zelda was a good idea at all, but still, it performed well and certainly surprised me.

For Honor was always billed as a multiplayer focused game.

Zelda selling better is irrelevant, if it truly were sent out to die , it wouldn't be charting. It's the fourth best selling game in 2017 so far, behind some of the greatest selling tittles in years. Like Wildlands, and BOTW.

Persona 5 should be pretty close to Top 10 for games sales throughout 2017 right?

MLB is #2 behind Persona this month but charted like 3-4 days last month and is exactly #10 on " Best selling games of 2017 through April ".
