Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu Sales: Week 42, 2020 (Oct 12 - Oct 18)

I'm always bummed when I see a Fifa in any sales Top. Especially in this particular one



Around the Network

Switch keeps hovering around the 100k mark! Very nice.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Another strong win YoY for Switch. Everything else is dead or dying.



Signature goes here!

I think around 100k might actually be the standard for the Switch for the next couple of weeks before the Holiday sales really kicks in, which is pretty wild.
Not the strongest of starts for Home Circuit, but I think it'll do pretty well during the holiday.



Major Switch Titles Launch Aligned

2022 predictions:

  • Switch - 24m
  • PS5 - 15.5m
  • Xbox Series - 10m

Was Mario Kart Live supply constrained in Japan like it's been in the U.S?

Considering it sold only 54% of the initial shipment, I don't think so.

Oh wow. So they shipped around 150k to Japan, I wonder how many the U.S. got.



I was hoping that Nintendo would ship extra systems to go with the release of Mario Kart Live, but I don't think they did. Not that 95k+ a week is bad. But we may end up seeing around 90k-110k systems sell each week until Age of Calamity releases.



I think MK live can be a surprise hit in the long run with word of mouth. I've seen a couple viral videos of it lately on Twitter.
Pretty amazing the Switch is able to stay around 100k without big releases. Really curious to see how well the PS5 will do in Japan.

Nintendo definitely shipped a lot of them, probably wanting to avoid another potential RFA situation. Here in Luxembourg in the local Saturn, they have over a dozen lying around.

On the other hand, Luxembourg retailers always stock a lot. The Wii and PS4 for instance were both only sold out at launch, never afterwards anymore. And I never have seen RFA out of stock here, either.
