Soul Calibur VI has Strong Sales
Soul Calibur VI may very well have hit close to 1 million units sold (Not including digital) according to available data. This should be welcomed news to those who were afraid it would be the last game of the franchise (As its creators had revealed could be the case if it underperformed).
Dead or Alive 6 Not Doing so Well!
Dead or Alive 3: Scarlet has been confirmed as having had higher pre-order numbers than Dead or Alive 6. This in spite of the far greater promotion DOA 6 received or the fact that it was their latest big “Main series” game to be released. This should come as no surprise given that the launch of DOA 6 was mired in controversy that included the potential removal of fanservice to be more “realistic” and then, after alienating their established audience, they still released a game with enough fanservice to turn off the audience who might have cared about the anti-sex pandering.

Details on the PS5
Sony has revealed that their new console, the Playstation 5, set for launch beyond 2019, will be backwards compatible with PS4 games (With many games launching for both systems) and will supposedly “make fundamental changes to what a game can be”, whatever that means. It will contain a solid-state drive. With Sony having devalued its PS4 with heavy handed censorship only recently, it remains to be seen if there will be demand for the next generation of Playstation consoles.
