It’s Wednesday, which means the newest Media Create report for video game hardware and software charts is now out. There’s not much here that has changed over last week— as was the case then, Spider-Man ended up topping the software charts for a third week straight in Japan, which is an extremely rare great performance for a western game in the land of the rising sun.

These legs came in spite of new releases, such as Steins;Gate Elite, which saw the PS4 version coming in at second place, and the Switch version at fourth place. It’s important to note, however, that the difference in unit sales between the two versions was a little over 100 units, which is basically statistical noise.

In terms of hardware, you have three guesses to figure out who won. Yes, it was the Switch yet again, with slightly over 37,000 units sold (its worst showing in a good while, to be fair). The PS4, with just under 16,000 units, was second place, while the 3DS, with under 8,000 units, was third.
