Pretty strong opening for Dragon Quest. Very nice hold for the Switch from last week!

Switch maintaining a brutal hardware ratio over the competition; 8 to 1 over its nearest rival this week


SwitchUP (on 03 October 2019)

The switch is just CRUSHING everything else.

GuyDuke (on 02 October 2019)

Stronger opening for DQ than I thought.


SwitchUP (on 03 October 2019)

It's really shocking to see the downplay of dragon quest 11... jesus. It's as if the game didnt exist for 2+ fucking years already on 2 platforms with a combined 176 million or so units..


Blood_Tears (on 04 October 2019)

Yeah bro, people get so fucking defensive about fucking Dragon Quest eh bro. Like wtf bro, seriously. Maybe one day they'll up "switchup" bruh and buy the definitive edition.....bro..

So you parrot the parrot comment and taunt more over nothing? When you're the one who can't handle opposing opinions and initiated a pathetic reply to my comment. And you see nothing hypocritical about that? 42 years old on a Dragon Quest article looking for potshots. Sad and pathetic. Get over yourself.

You cant parrot yourself, smartguy, Haha. I continued off my op, and you're a parrot, parrot. Nice try though. The only thing I find pathetic is a fan who has to downplay things when it hurts their wittle feewings.... like it did yours. I just call it like it is, parrot. Try again, scooter. I havent downplayed anything... because I have no need to. But you, on the other hand.... they have a name for guys like you... damn.. what is it? Oh.. cant say it here. But you definitely are one.

Digital must be crazy good for PS4 Atelier Ryza since they confirmed 150k for this game sales.


Rob5VGC (on 02 October 2019)

That 150k includes Mondays new shipment.

Piece should have been titled "Atelier Ryza sold 150k first week" instead, its way more impressive than DQ11 doing 200k.


RetroGamer94 (on 02 October 2019)

Good thing DQ11 did over 300k! ;)

Rob5VGC (on 02 October 2019)

An article has already been made for that. Also, The 150k includes this weeks new shipment that happened on Monday. So it makes no sense to add this weeks shipment with last week numbers.

Jranation (on 02 October 2019)

But according to this article you are both wrong with the numbers.

Not impressed at all by DQ11. A bigger install base in Japan, land of the handhelds and only debuts with less than 1/3 of the PS4 launch week.

Ljink96 (on 02 October 2019)

Most of Japan has already played this game though...300K FW for what's essentially a 2 year old re-release is quite good. The 3DS Version of DQXI did better than the PS4 version in Japan as well so chances are most Nintendo players in Japan have played DQXI in some capacity by now.

SwitchUP (on 03 October 2019)

Totally bruh. It's not like it's been out for 2 years on an already bigger installbase(3ds) and sold millions... like totally bro. You're so right. It's all because of the underperformance of the switch, right bruh? I mean.... if the game were on, say, the ps4 and maybe, 3ds even, it SURELY would have done better.... hmm. Yeah, bro.

That awkward moment when you hate so hard on Nintendo, you end up looking retarded.
