Dragon Ball FighterZ for the PS4 leaps comfortably into second place in the software sales chart in its debut week with 68,731 units sold. The rest of the software sales chart is dominated by Nintendo Switch games such as Splatoon 2Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey and more. Other games that broke into the top twenty include Dissidia Final Fantasy NT and Call of Duty WW2 for the PS4 as well as a few 3DS games like Pokemon Ultra Sun / Ultra Moon and Mario Party: The Top 100. No Xbox game managed to break into the top twenty of the software sales chart.

A notable mention would be the debut of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch, which opened with 13,922 units sold, allowing it to grab the seventh spot on the software sales chart. This is an impressive feat considering that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a port of a seven-year-old game.

On the hardware sales chart, the PS4 remained on top for the fourth consecutive week with 109,287 units sold. The Nintendo Switch trailed behind with 49,165 units sold, followed by the PS4 Pro with 23,113 units sold.
