    How come the PS4 Pro is selling so much less than the regular PS4? You'd think if people were still going to get a last gen console, they'd get the superior version. Is it a matter of stock?

    I think they might have discontinued it in Japan. I can't remember.

    But I'd actually think if someone was going to get a ps4 this late, they would go with the cheapest option. It's not like the ps4 will be getting many, if any, exclusives. Everything is either ps5 or cross gen.

    Better to save the money while they wait for ps5's to be readily available.

    Wow. Ps5 has some decent sales this week. Must be getting more stock in Japan.

    I would comment on the switch, but what is there to say about a console the week of a monster hunter launch?

    Speaking of which, I guess monster hunter had a pretty balanced launch in terms of region. 4 million shipped with only 1.3 sold in Japan. And the word only is relative to the 4 million. Obviously a great launch number.

    2 millions including digital so another 2 millions for the rest of the world.

    That sounds a little more like what I expected. Even better launch than I thought.
