Pretty impressive first week sales for GoT in Japan ! I hope it has some legs, even if this seems really improbable for a western IP on PS4 that is not Minecraft

Really happy to see the sales numbers that high. The hype for the game here in Japan is real. It should do well for a few more weeks for sure as trends go for new PS4 games and all. But yeah great numbers, well deserved!

Wow I thought 100k might be pushing it, 212k is excellent. Could have legs too, the word of mouth around the game seems very positive

They're not kidding about the storm coming.
Yep, 113k hardware for Nintendo Switch despite stock issues.

No wonder Nintendo didn't announce a single shit for this holiday lol. Animal Crossing and RFA are really a scary combination during this pandemic time.

212k is mighty impressive. If there was proper supply of ps4 it would have sold even more. Sold out everywhere though so it definitely could be around 300k launch week with digital.

Worldwide sales could be over 2M!

Shame ps4 doesn't have supply anymore. It could have reached 10M. Obviously Sony only care for ps5 now but the question is will those who wanted to buy a ps4 this year but couldn't go and buy a more expensive ps5 instead?
