  1. Happy seeing WWE2K22 in the 5th spot, and the dev’s actually keeping it updated as well as server maintenance. Haven’t encountered any game breaking bugs in 2k22, although i did have one crash during the Showcase.
    My only concern for WWE2K22 is if they ever shutdown the servers for MyFaction when the next installment of WWE releases. Because you can’t access MyFaction unless your connected to the dev’s servers. Haven’t purchased any Virtual Currency the games micro transaction dlc that’s used for purchasing additional card packs.

    Based off my experience with MyFaction the card packs have pretty bad RNG and you hardly get anything good anyhow. Im happy they continue adding additional card packs and weekly towers, unfortunately the card packs have bad odds of actually getting anything noteworthy.

    The most recent card packs was the Wrestle Mania pack and Signature Series, but unless they add better quality cards in future packs alot of the tower objectives are almost impossible. Not necessarily game breaking, however it’s like their more less forcing people into purchasing Virtual currency for card packs because alot of the objectives on legendary difficulty are almost impossible.

    The Faction Wars 4v4 matches are pretty easy, unfortunately the tower matches have almost impossible objectives as of the time of writing until they add better quality cards.

  2. A mini direct will correct this trajectory. That’s for the mid months of the year. Monster Hunter rise sun break shall increase sales. Another high profile game is needed in may or June. We know in the holidays Pokémon lifts the switch automatically.


  3. Nintendo Switch just sold 107 Million Units to Date! Almost catching up to ps4 fast! 2022 is going to be a huge Year for Nintendo Switch! The minor decline is due to the delay of Breath of the Wild 2, but a Nintendo Direct will fix that!

      1. Question: whenever the Switch 2 arrives will it sales be combined with the current Switch or will it have to start from the bottom on up? If so then the Switch won’t surpass the PS4.
