With Super Mario Bros.: The Movie sweeping the box office, it looked like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s ​​Week 14 reign would continue for a few more days (not in vain is the title the newest to join the “million sellers club” in Spain, and who knows if it’s the last), but there was a wolf in sheep’s clothing waiting for the opportunity to subjugate us all to his terrifying sect and deliciously disturbing. Cult of the Lamb, which despite its digital release last summer on all platforms, received a bestial reception when it arrived in our country in the week 15: from April 10 to 16 and it stood out enough to be the best-selling title, with over 3,000 new “lambs” on Nintendo Switch. Half of them also for a Deluxe edition which doubles its price compared to the standard, but did not stop the fervor of its faithful.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has to settle for cash this time around, although that won’t make it take its foot off the gas for a moment, as it adds more 2,500 units for a long time on your account. The Last of Us: Part II resurfaces with a bang to continue delivering more 2,000 fans of the series get an idea of ​​what’s to come in the next season from HBO Max. The rest of the usual suspects remain in steady numbers, although there’s no denying that the film’s pull and some timely minor offers saw three “Marios” at over a thousand copies each top Week 15. .

Hardware sales: Xbox Series and PS VR2 are dying

Without a strong launch to encourage an all-new console, hardware sales this week continue at a similar pace to the previous one, with the exception of Microsoft consoles. The two Xbox Series models are starting to gather dust on store shelves and the sum of the two models does not reach not half a thousand. Xbox needs to start delivering on its release promises if it doesn’t want to lose the home console battle. Redfall can start to reverse the disaster, but we don’t think it will be a turning point enough.

PS VR2, for its part, is still in intensive care, without raising the head of those 250 helmets the weekly begging for a discount. The PlayStation 5 remains firm at its seven thousand units per week, and the Nintendo Switch repeats with 4,000.

Next week, we’ll see if Los Angeles zombies in Dead Island 2 and military strategy in Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp have an effect on console sales.
