Kingdom Hearts III released to critical acclaim like almost every other entry in the series. As a fan of the series, I had a fantastic time.

So what is it about this one that didn't sit so well with other people? Well, even those that have been with the series for every game have waited seven years for a full-sized Kingdom Hearts experience. With that kind of a wait time, some people are bound to set high expectations. Simply put, we overhyped it. Head inside for more.

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was a bit of a mixed bag. PlayStation 4 received multiple big games (which might as well have been exclusives given the lack of Xbox interest in Japan) like Jump Force, Catherine: Full Body, Far Cry: New Dawn, and Metro Exodus, but Sony's console actually saw slightly decreased sales over last week. Meanwhile, Nintendo Switch coasted to an easy first place (and increased sales) with no major releases.

PlayStation Vita was far from the success story Sony envisioned when they launched it as a 3DS rival. Though more powerful than Nintendo's handheld, Vita lacked the system-selling hit games it needed to thrive, and it wasn't long before Sony began pulling back on first-party support altogether. Vita found a niche audience in Japan but never managed to gain much traction globally. Now, just over seven years after its debut, Sony is preparing to pull the plug.

Red Dead Redemption has been a massive success for Rockstar. The highly-anticipated Western shooter launched to stellar review scores and quickly sold over 17 million copies, and that was all before the game's online launched.
