yeah, it was a bit of a shock.

do find it kinda funny that the ps5 is now compared against the vita



Also in other news, the JPY did hit 150:1 to the USD but then came back down slightly 149.9 at the moment
Thats pretty wild how the LTDs add up

I know they love they love their Dragon Quest in japan, but the dqx offline sales are hell of a lot more than I was expecting. I thought it might have one strong week and then disappear. Good for S-E. That said, this only furthers my belief that you can crap in a box and as long as there is a Dragon Quest logo and a slime on it, it will sell in japan.

Disastrous stock for the Lite and bad for the other models. Makes Nintendo hitting their hardware target even harder.
