Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu sales: Week 22, 2021 - (May 24 - May 30)

I'm beginning this thread a day early because, although we don't yet have a full report, we do know the hardware numbers for the Switch because Famitsu today reports that Switch has now passed 20,000,000 units in Japan.  For this week Switch sold 71,148, which puts it at 20,018,278 lifetime.

Around the Network

Things to note, NSW is at 2678k with 4 weeks left to end the First half.

2020 NSW did 2667k in the first half, so 4 weeks to increase the gap then bamm summer



The switch is just rolling along like nothing else matters



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Seems like scalpers and JAV enthousiasts got theirs hands on PS5s again.

the only explanation.

Top 10 and full hardware info now up in the OP!

Miitopia takes #1 (!!) and Biomutant debuts at #2. Big jump up for the PS5 as well.



SW-3707-5131-3911

Great bounce back PS5 and Switch loses some ground compared to 2020 this week.



Signature goes here!

Miitopia is actually looking pretty good at this point.  Last week Rune Factory 5 debuted at #1 and Miitopia debuted at #2.  This week Miitopia is at #1 and RF5 fell to fifth place with a huge 87% drop.  Looks like Miitopia is going to outsell it in the long run in spite of RF5's strong debut.

Switch just reached 20m and it's sales are still increasing YoY overall.  Think about that.  Sales are not even slowing down yet.  A system usually peaks around the time it gets to roughly half of its sales.  (I.e. about 1/2 of sales on its way up and about 1/2 coming down.)  Switch still hasn't peaked.  That means 40m is a pretty decent estimate for Switch's lifetime in Japan.  In fact, it might go significantly above 40m, because Switch still hasn't peaked yet.  At this point who knows how far it can go?

We'll let T-bone making a prediction

Well deserved for Miitopia, it's such a good funny game.
