  1. Madden 23 needs to come to the Nintendo Switch, if they want more money, they need to bring to the switch, it’s not fair that other game consoles get it, ea sports is being stingy and selfish with their madden games 😡😡😡😡

    1. I guess it’s your prerogative to buy a severely incomplete sports title at full price and that you have to buy the rest of the game through multiple paywalls with the added benefit of the title looking like an N64 game even on the most beefiest PC.

  2. How is ps5 hardware #1. As far as i can tell u cant buy a PS5 anywhere. They hiked price and literally talk about not being able to make the console.

    Very odd but hey we do live in clown world

    1. They didn’t hike it in the America or Canada. The PlayStation is still popular world wide too. Right after Nintendo.


  3. Why doesn’t the US report have the systems and sales numbers like the Japanese report? And the games period total and lifetime sales?
