New medium-sized releases have finally arrived to enliven the Spanish video game market in the week 16 of 2023, which ran from April 17 to 23. However, the most-wanted title was a bargain on a next-gen classic and the game of the highest caliber wasn’t dead, but it wasn’t brimming with life either.

A regular on the lists of recent weeks, The Last of Us: Part II on PlayStation 4was the best-selling game of the week with just over 4,500 units, an increase possible only by reducing the price from 15 euros to less than 10 euros (in a product that cost more than 40 euros).

Sony did it by the hair of a clicker with just a handful of copies more than Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, also above 4,500 units. The premiere of the WayForward remake for Nintendo Switch of the Game Boy Advance classics went according to plan with a more than decent rating for the genre and the proposal, but especially looking at the price above 50 euros.


The biggest release of the week, however, was Dead Island 2, which has more than 5,000 copies Combined, a very decent figure is scored in Spain but it seems far from the great success in other countries. Only the PS5 version makes the podium (and the top) with around 3,400 units of this total, the majority in the Pulp edition of around 70 euros.

good start to you too Minecraft Legends, with over 3,500 combined and leaving the feeling that Microsoft is as happy as Nintendo that the brand is increasingly associated with Switch: almost 3,000 of the total were red boxed and more than 570,000 copies of the first Minecraft in the format have already been sold. More than Zelda: Breath of the Wild…

Hardware sales: PS5 calms down, Switch lifts spirits, and Xbox and PSVR2 remain depressed

As far as consoles and peripherals are concerned, the umpteenth zombie mode (in this case TLOU2 and Dead Island 2) has not served to move the PlayStation 5 consoles, which have relaxed their great weekly pace of recent months to remain below 6,000 PS5.

Nintendo, which was already pointing out ways to speed it up a bit thanks to the Super Mario movie and the proximity of the communion season, has again moved on to touch the 5,000 switcha number that will probably repeat itself or increase in these days with this very Christian present.

For their part, Microsoft consoles continue to be in the doldrums (less than half a thousand Xbox Series X | S), which seem quite forgotten by the public, and the same can be said of the periphery PlayStation VR 2, which is still below 300 headsets weekly. Both items will have to find their particular resurrection in offers and big launches.
