And as we expected, the new version of Capcom’s classic was the big protagonist of this week’s sales. With plenty of room, though perhaps a bit sparse when compared to other stellar releases so far in 2023, Resident Evil 4 takes the top spots in the Week 12 Bestsellers of the year, accompanied by a few regular bestsellers, and with a special guest returning to the forefront for a brief but intense visit: The Callisto Protocol.

  2. Resident Evil 4 for PS4

The return of Los Illuminados only saw the three-fold sales podium interrupted by a protocol The Callisto that players did not let go, with an offer at an unbeatable price to place. 4,000 units on PS5 and thus remove the stock. However, the protagonist has been Resident Evil 4, which by adding all its versions slightly exceeds the 25,000 copies in its opening weekend, two-thirds for the PlayStation 5 version. Good numbers, sure, but nothing like what Hogwarts Legacy achieved when it premiered, and it barely doubles Metroid Prime Remastered with its physical relaunch earlier this month.


The rest of the board is made up of many regulars with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (a “millionaire” title in our country) with a thousand and a half, Hogwarts Legacy with almost the same amount (and whose batteries are already running out) and a Super Mario Odyssey taking advantage of the hype ahead of the film’s premiere next week, to present 1,250 future movie buffs to the latest Mario mainline released to date.

By the way, last week’s hit, Bayonetta Origins: Cherry and the Lost Demon dropped to half a thousand copies this week. Pokémon Scarlet and Purple once again remain at the gates of tenth place, also stroking the thousand units between the two versions.

Hardware sales: Spring softens the urge to buy PS5 and Switch

Perhaps because gamers were proactive before the release of Resident Evil 4, or simply because the heat accompanies more outdoor activities, this week console sales plummeted across all platforms. playstation 5 seater 6,000 units between the two models and maintains its firm hegemony, while the Nintendo Switch begins to show the infirmities of age to remain this time below the 3,000 brackets.


The Xbox Series, with less and less of a rush to release Starfield, leaves just over five hundred units, half for white and half for black. And as an ominous note, the very poor 400 PS VR2 Unitswhose decline is palpable all over the world, and which only a reduction can save from a commercial disaster.

Next week we’ll say goodbye to a March without a mighty premiere to know, although we already have hints of where the shots will go in a few weeks when this Nintendo Switch OLED Tears of the Kingdom will land in stores in a month, as a preview of what will be Nintendo’s launch of the year.
