How much did Fatal Frame V did on Wii U? I clearly remember the number was shockingly low.

EDIT: 27K, not shockingly low compared to this. Still, it did quite well now, I'm glad. 



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

A 12.5K growth over T for Super Robot Wars 30 with a big increase on Switch and a decline on PS4.

32k on Wii U so this port is already 10k up on the initial release.



Great numbers for Mario Party, Super Mario Party did 126.2k FW. Though I still think Super Mario Party will have better lifetime sales. But I like Mario Party Superstars more.

Also PS5 sales jumped a lot this week.

Lifetime? That's terrible.



The PS4 version of a game outselling the Switch version of a game in Japan is bizarre to see. I guess horror is more popular among PlayStation than Nintendo users.

Edit: The PS4 version upgrades to PS5 for free, so this makes a little more sense. Some of those "PS4" software sales are also essentially PS5 software sales. This again shows the software attach ratio for PS5 in japan is not necessarily as bad as it appears as a lot of people are getting PS5 versions of games with PS4 retail sales.

So with digital Mario Party Superstars is likely at or close to 200k fw. That's great.

XBSX got a restock, about time.

Looking forward to see where Metroid Dread is at now.

The Playstation user base never got to play Fatal Frame 5, some of the Nintendo user base did though. I think that could explain this.

True, though as the WiiU version only sold 46k in it's first 3 months (can't find data for after) I'm not sure how much of a bearing that has. Not many switch owners will have played it on WiiU, and it wouldn't surprise me if a lot of people who bought it on WiiU would want to buy it again on Switch anyway. I think fans of this niche franchise would be the type to double-dip etc.
