Odin Sphere Leifthrasir got the recognition it deserves, as Odin Sphere was an absolutely lovely game, and the demo was a lot of fun to play. The PS4 and PS Vita versions came head to head, with the PS3 version selling just a fraction of those numbers, showing once more that Japan is finally ready to move on from the old generation.

The 3DS and PS4 firmly hold the top in sales for portables and hole consoles, and yes, the Xbox One just dropped under 100 units sold in a week. It’s not exactly surprising, but it’s still a pretty depressing sight.
