Very good FW numbers for SMTV, probably the highest in the series?



My Xbox Series S is my baby.

Going by the breakdown, Switch and PS5 seem supply constrained. Xbox has exactly the same number overall, but the breakdown shows that Mr. Sakurais Xbox Series X was actually a rarity, instead Series S was more widely available.

Shin Megami Tensei tops the charts unsurprisingly, has anyone opening numbers of earlier installments for comparison?

Dragon Quest X opens double as strong on Switch than PS4.



3DS-FC: 4511-1768-7903 (Mii-Name: Mnementh), Nintendo-Network-ID: Mnementh, Switch: SW-7706-3819-9381 (Mnementh)

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021

10 years greatest game event!

bets: [peak year] [+], [1], [2], [3], [4]

Good week for SMTV. Not a great week for hardware though...Switch slightly down, PS5 WAY down, and XBS with the exact same number as last week (?!).  Also, Series S moves ahead of Series X YTD.

It sounds good when you say "For the People", but what you really want is... a stronger army than the Knights, and the evil power to control the people.

Great debut for Shin Megami Tensei V.

Week 1 sales of SMT IV were higher (187.139 units), but if SMT V had a physical/digital ratio of at least 75% / 25%, then it must have sold more (at least 190,000 units).

For Famitsu, SMT IV did 184k on 11 million 3DS's in 2013.

Well crap, I thought SMT V had blown it out of the water.

I thought this was SMT big chance to grow as a series like Persona did when it's sales exploded with Persona 4: Golden and suddenly became a million seller.

Maybe in the west it'll see a big increase over SMT IV.

AC nearing 7m at retail.



That is the closest I have ever seen PlayStation and Xbox in Japan.
Jeez, those supply constraints are no joke.
