    Here are the Media Create sales figures for Week #29 2018:

    Only 1 new release for week 29 of the Media Create sales chart; Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum 'n' Fun! debuts straight in at #1 for Nintendo Switch, with a cool 70k units sold - enough to knock Octopath Traveler off the top spot after just 1 week. Octopath Traveler drops 80% in sales when compared to its week 28 launch, and now sits in the #2 spot with only 22k units sold (133k total), most likely due to supply shortages, acknowledged by Square Enix as they issued a second apology to gamers regarding the lack of stock:

    "I am sorry that the situation of shortage continues.
    We will ship it after earnest production so that we can deliver enough number,
    As for the latest number of shipments, it is expected that it will still be considerably few.
    I am sorry to have kept you waiting. We hope that you will be able to consider the download version if you do not mind. # Octopus Traveler"


    Nintendo now holds the first 12 places of the top 20, compared to last week's 7 - and have 16 titles in the chart overall, versus Sony's 4.
    Switch hardware sales continues to rise, with another small 3k boost, we also see 3DS and PS4 gain similar increases in hardware sold for week 29. Xbox One has an 868% increase when compared to last week's figures.

    Piracy is making Nintendo Switches sell like a Pac-Man.

    Clearly you have absolutely no clue about the Japanese console and game market.

    I'm surprised that the Nintendo 3DS is still selling a fair amount of consoles!

    When Switch hadn't been hacked, I had seen a lot of “Pac Man”, so those were all just coincidences?

    Only 4 PS4 games on the top 20 list?... I thought Sony had this gen in the bag but really looks like Nintendo is taking home all the cash.
