I guess I'm just so used to typing it as Pokemon Sword and Shield I accidentally started it with Sw. Thanks for pointing it out.

If you know that a certain game has sold more than another by both digital and physical then you can certainly publish the sales figures!

Don't most Pokemon games usually have a pretty even split when it comes to x vs y? Maybe "sword" and "shield" were poor choices for names as it seems like everyone really loves swords. It's not exactly surprising to see Sword selling more, but somewhere I saw something that put Sword at like 75 ~ 80%. It wasn't sales related, and I can't remember where I saw it (maybe a poll), but it seems like Sword could be getting the vast majority of sales based on my observations.

That is the main reason I bought Sword over the Shield. The name. Otherwise I didn't look into the exclusives for each version.

I think in general the first copy (ie Sword, Sun, Red etc) tend to sell better, although say by how much or specifically why.
I usually do get the second one but got Sword this time as I thought the exclusives were better.

I think they're fine with whatever version sells more. Besides, I guess that makes the shield exclusives more valuable.

So Ring Fit could not be above GTA V...Interesting.

Typically, games don't stay in the top 10 a month after their debut. Games like GTAV are the exception, and I don't think anyone was expecting GTAV level sales for Ring Fit.
