Around the Network

PS5 DE is becoming an increasingly high % of PS5s sold, in this case 25%. People are being forced to go in that direction because of lack of stock it seems



So close to 100k for Switch. PS5 still a bit low compared to April-early May numbers. How does Rune Factory 5's opening compare to previous games?



Signature goes here!

Another boring week this time, but the upcoming week will prove to be competitive. No noteworthy game release in 2020, just the first major restock after Golden Week.

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

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Shipments

Switch holds the 100K baseline. 20 million next week!



Around the Network

I was hoping the 20 million for this week, but I need to wait until next week then

Ring Fit just refuses to ever stop.



Major Switch Titles Launch Aligned

2021 predictions:

  • Switch - 27m
  • PS5 - 15.5m
  • Xbox Series - 10m

Rune Factory 5 denies the top spot to Miitopia. Also, with all of these newer games in the top 10, I really noticed how RFA is the top evergreen. Go Ring Fit! The game launched with a yawn, but now it has the adrenaline pumping and is ready to sell like it's in a marathon.

Next week Switch hits 20m!



So when do you guys expect the Switch to go below 50k again? Certainly this momentum can't hold up forever.

RF sales numbers:
[NDS] Rune Factory 1 - 39k
[NDS] Rune Factory 2 - 56k
[Wii] Rune Factory Frontier - 18k
[NDS] Rune Factory 3 - 44k
[Wii] Rune Factory Oceans - 10k
[PS3] Rune Factory Oceans - 26k
[3DS] Rune Factory 4 - 88k
[NSW] Rune Factory 4 - 37k
[NSW] Rune Factory 5 – 102.853

If the rumored Switch upgrade comes out this year, not for a while.
