Nintendo Switch sells 12,000 units in a single week

Switch gets some extraordinary data, while Spiderman is the best-selling game in a week without major releases.

Here are the figures:

Pos. Juego. Plat. Ventas Total
1 Spider-Man PS4 4300 298.600
2 Days Gone PS4 3700 42.300
3 Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Switch 3500 374.500
4 Super Mario Party Switch 2200 72.000
5 Grand Theft Auto V PS4 2000 921.200
6 Super Mario Odyssey Switch 1700 349.900
7 Mortal Kombat 11 Switch 1500 Novedad
8 FIFA 19 PS4 1500 631.400
9 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Switch 1400 137.000
10 Minecraft Switch 1200 15.600

Estas son las ventas de consolas del 6 al 12 de mayo:

Nintendo Switch: 12.000 unidades
PS4: 6000 unidades
Xbox One: 800 unidades

The sales increase are due to "communions effect" (the first communion is a sacramental ritual of the Catholic Church celebrated at this time, in which traditionally 9-year-old children usually receive great gifts) is very noticeable in Spain, and both PS4 and Nintendo Switch have been having higher sales than usual.

Spider-Man, cool. Days Gone was number 1 in the last month, overall @ Spai



Death Stranding-Release: November 8!

Great hardware week for Sony and Nintendo (but not MSoft), but the software hasn't changed much, which begs the question: have they bought the console but not games for it or have most of them gone digital?

Mortal Kombat finally launched for Switch, doing roughly the same number that the game did on PS4 in its second week

The most recent thread about sales in Spain is for the period from two weeks before the current thread:

There's a correlation between higher hardware sales and much higher software sales for specific titles such as Spiderman, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Party, so the question you are asking doesn't really make sense. Considering what the reason for the increased hardware sales was, only one game going along with a console purchase in many cases isn't unreasonable.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I knew the sales from the last report, I posted in that thread.

What I wanted to point out is that, while console sales increased by 9.500 units (7.500 Switch, 2.000 PS4), software sales decreased by 21.600 units. Even if we remove the sales from Days Gone as it was a mildly anticipated game, it turns out that there has an increase, yes, but of only 1.300 games sold. 1.300 more games for 9.500 more consoles.

You are only looking at a top 10 to draw conclusions about software sales. Also, Days Gone wasn't the only new release two weeks ago, Mortal Kombat 11 was new as well. It would also make more sense to look at the consoles individually.

Switch hardware is higher by 7,500 units. Two weeks ago Switch software in the overall top 10 combined for 4,500 units, this week's tally is 10,000 plus 1,500 from the new release Mortal Kombat 11. Games like Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2 and Pokémon: Let's Go that are outside of the top 10 can easily account for the rest.

Games outside the top 10 count, no doubt about that, but this week's tenth game sold 1.200 units while the tenth game from the last report sold 1.000. The difference isn't really big and the games outside the top ten can follow the same pattern.

I missed that Mortal Kombat was also a new release two weeks ago (its numbers were so below the ones from Days Gone that I didn't realized its novelty), making the comparison a bit harder to make.

We could go another two weeks back, the 25/03/19 - 31/03/19 report were there were two new games but neither crossed the 3.000 figure. In that report, hardware sales were almost 10K lower, but software was only 3.500 less.

Software sales this plast period haven't been as good as they could.
