If Famitsu has a similar number, then Switch will kick off 2020 with a year over year advantage of ~50k.

A good opportunity to mention that I'll continue to post a table for comparison in 2020.



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

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Gamers Club

Week 1, 2019
Switch Hardware: 225.698
Switch Top 10 Software: 704.322
Switch Top 20 Software: 792.768

Week 1, 2020
Switch Hardware: 273.420
Switch Top 10 Software: 576.891
Switch Top 20 Software: 721.113

Week 1, 2020 is below Week 1, 2019 in terms of Software sales for the Switch, but not substantially when looking at games outside of the Top 10.
Once again the main cause for 2020 being below 2019 is lack of stock for Ring Fit Adventure, I believe that if there was sufficient supply for Ring Fit, Week 1 2020 would have been ahead.
What's coming up

- 3rd Party Support is ramping up this Q1, if we compare it to Q1 2019/Q1 2018, I expect a lot more 3rd party games in the Top 10
- Ring Fit will be a Top 5 game majority of Q1 Weeks until demand is met, I expect it to reach 1M physical after Animal Crossing's launch.
- Pokemon's legs will be stronger than prior games due to the recent announcement(Chris on Resetera says he expects the game to have a chance to reach 5M phyiscal + digital lifetime).
- Animal Crossing will be driving huge demand at the end of the Quarter in terms of hardware sales & software sales. This will be far the biggest release we have in Q1 since Breath of Wild launching together with the Switch. 
- Pokemon Mystery Dungeon remake could be one of the other top 10 releases this quarter

TOP 10 2019 Switch Famitsu Q1:
1) Smash Ultimate - 631.721

Proud poster of the 10000th reply at the Official Smash Bros Update Thread.

Bets with Conegamer:

Pandora's Tower will have an opening week of less than 37k in Japan. (Won!)
Pandora's Tower will sell less than 100k lifetime in Japan.
Stakes: 1 week of avatar control for each one.

Top 21 all Switch, wow!

Also, Pokemon SwoSh is about to overtake Splatoon 2.

And Luigi has giant legs, it seems. No wonder he's taller than his brother...

Suprised to see Brain Training do better on Week 2 than on release. Anyone know what could have caused that?
