Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu Sales: Week 12, 2020 (Mar 16 - Mar 22)

The Switch passed the Wii total sales in Japan. 12.750.000

Making it number 10 of the best selling systems in Japan.

Japan alone outselling the totality of everyone else this week is now assured. Do you think it's possible for the Switch to reach a million in sales worldwide this week alone ?

Ehh, aren't those 2 things incompatible?

I'd expect you to be right about the first one, so I don't think we'll see it reach 800k, but maybe close. We'll know soon.



Interestingly, AC pushed the highest hardware week ever, but didnt push any other game...

Next week.

Increses in other software always happen in the week after the hardware boost.

A lot of those Switch were bought just for Animal Crossing. Once they get tired of that they will look into other games.

Everyone went in stores for only 1 reason.

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.

Fullfilled Prophecies

Animal Crossing is slaying with those sales.

My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

You should know, you were the Japanese release list guy.

I expect the next big thing will be a game announced on a direct otherwise it will be FF chronicles.

I'm guessing the yearly pokemon games. Unless they announce Tomodoachi life 2 on Switch or the next Monster Hunter.
