Nice Switch bump.
OLED stock will be key in determining if 2021 can top 2020. Itll be close but I feel like 2021 will win.



tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

They couldn't find one customer more to buy Metroid Dread to make it a nice round number.

OLED and RFA got a restock

It's super-effective!



Only 74 Xbox Series X consoles. That's wild.

OLED got a good restock just like RFA.
And looks like ACNH is getting a boost because of the 2.0 update announcement. Maybe it can reach 12mil after all.

I want to see Metroid Dread top 200k physical. That would be AMAZING!

Great switch numbers, I think globally 2021 will be lower than 2020, but in Japan I think 2021 has a good shot at winning.

I don't see Demon Slayer selling more than Metroid (at least physical)

That would be quite surprising. I can see 2021 pulling off the win over 2020 but not 2022.



Signature goes here!

OLED got a decent restock this week.  There is no doubt that OLED demand is high in Japan.  Also, I find it incredible that even though a whole lot of games have been released during the last couple of months, RFA can still take the #3 slot this week.  Talk about demand that just won't die.



Series S is selling nearly 4K just on its own. Next time Series X stock gets in to Japan, it could be quite a big week.

Still waiting for an Xbox game to make the top 30 since the Series X/S launch though...maybe Forza or Halo? Although with so many units sold being the discless Series S, it will make it tough to make the physical only Famitsu charts.
