Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu sales: Week 18, 2021 - (Apr 26 - May 2)

As I thought, some leaks for Famitsu from a couple weeks ago have dropped.  I will continue to update this as the full top 10 & 30 are released.

Hardware sales

So NSW hardware sales continue to increase over last years totals... wonder if that "pandemic" bump theory still holds up...



Nintendo with the Switch:

I can't make sense out of PS5's software situation and it's kind of bugging me out. Is everyone playing old PS4 games and that PS+ Collection on it or what? PS4's lineup at the time was also awful for Japan, but I don't remember their sales being anywhere near that low, even though weekly hardware sales were a lot worse.



NSW 2021 W18 > 2020 W18+19combined



Those software sales are all over the place! I think numbers 4 and 8 are missing from what i can make out but surprisingly low sales from about 5 onwards and not in order.

Not blaming the OP in any way, just to be clear.

ANDY MURRAY:- GRAND SLAM WINNER!

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

Around the Network

Switch is on fire! PS5 continues to do well (hardware wise at least), it is now comfortably ahead of PS4 launch aligned.

This is a leaked, incomplete software list.  It only shows the top 3 Switch, top 3 PS4, and top 2 PS5 software for the week.  That's also why the current week rankings are listed as 00. for all games.  The full top 10 will release Thursday and the top 30 Friday (at the latest).

Edit: I've updated the OP to reflect the above

20+ million by the end of the month ?



"Quagmire, are you the type of guy who takes 'no' for an answer ?"
"My lawyer doesn't allow me to answer that question"

PSN ID: skmblake | Feel free to add me

Insane numbers for Switch , and actually decent numbers for PS5, I guess both were boosted by the first few days of the Golden Week.

MHR doing more than 100k

SM3DW+BF's performance is simply amazing, dat boost.

Good debut for New Pokemon Snap and expected drop for Nier Replicant.

There's generally a slump in sales after Goldenweek, but it's possible
