Italy has always been pro-playstation. They are big in Soccer games, car games, simulators and so the PS is popular there. What would be interesting is how it did before in italy in prior weeks. It is very curious how the sales about Italy have suddenly come to light, I hope more articles will be posted so we can follow the trends and get a clear idea of what works there. Because if this is typical, then PS4 dominates the italian chart wouldn't be news. Otherwise we would have articles with Nintendo dominates Japan charts every week. For example, the original italian article doesn't say "PS4 Dominates the italian charts" but rather "Classifiche italiane, Fifa 20 torna ad imporsi", which means "Italian rankings, Fifa 20 returns to impose its top position". Going back about 6 weeks in the Classifiche section, I noticed that PS4 typically has 7 or 8 titles in the top 10, and this time 9, which is not so exceptional from the average.

Trunks is trying out with creative titles for news/articles is all. You will notice things like Switch explodes in May, orLead shrunk this month and of course PS4 dominates Italy charts. It's nothing to drastic that needs to be discussed at great length.

I didn't discuss it at great length and I'm aware of his creativity with titles, which I have nothing against. The only thing is that Switch may have exploded in May, depending on the region it may be a real title. However here it's wrong. Thank you.

Unless... you want him to continue going that way, then please continue to encourage it.

That's interesting, because the UK charts were dominated by Switch titles.

Which is weird considering how Nintendo users normally describe the taste in the UK.

Replicant, you are absolutely right. UK is not a popular country for Nintendo, so it is interesting to see how each country continues with the brand that caters best to it. This is an excellent result of preferences by country, and branding within that country, and momentum of brands. Europe to me is fascinating when it comes to sales. To name a few countries, it seems like France is pro-Nintendo, UK is pro Xbox and PS, Italy is pro PS, Spain is pro Nintendo. The reasons for that are mostly up to taste and ultimately word of mouth, but of course also marketing in those specific regions.

Perfect. Would be even better if they complete the 10/10 with bloodborne.
