Slow week all round, small bump for Switch but the rest pretty much static, for better or (mostly) for worse.

I don't expect any significant increases in sales until the Switch Lite. Astral Chain and Gears 5 will probably give minor boosts to the Switch and Xbox One, respectively.

Agreed on the Lite and Gears. Not so sure Astral Chain will give any meaningful boost myself, guess we'll find out soon enough.

I guess I am a bit biased as Astral Chain is one of my more anticipated releases this year.

Woah, I completely forgot about Gears. I'm also pretty psyched for Astral Chain, but I agree with curl that it doesn't seem to be making much of a splash, sadly. I sure do hope we're wrong, because the reviews suggest this will be quite the hidden gem if people overlook it.
