Finally a win for 2022!! Let’s go Switch!!



Switch Sports did well and all three up over last year (especially Xbox).

EDIT: Just saw this isn't an apples to apples comparison with last year. :(

Just want to note that the "This Week" column is a two-week span, but the last week and last year columns are for a one-week span, So it's not an apples-to-apples comparison in that case.

Also, congrats to Switch for becoming the 3rd best selling console in Japan as it's now past 3DS. Only Game Boy and DS are ahead of it

Weren't last year 2 weeks sales for golden week around 236k for the switch?

Can't find about the other consoles.

Last year Switch sold 236,028, PS5 sold 53,640, and Xbox sold 1,207:

I split the sales evenly across two weeks for the time being. I'll change the numbers if we get information about the actual split.

Only four weeks left before 2021's weekly sales descend to lower levels and become less of a challenge. The launch of Splatoon 3 will preceed the OLED launch of last year, so September will allow 2022 to gain a lot of ground on 2021 before heading into the final quarter of the year.

Reminder: 2021's final quarter was rather weak at ~1.7m. 2020 was ~2.0m, 2019 was ~2.0m, 2018 was ~1.7m. This means that 2022's second half can remain flat in comparison to 2021 and possibly even close the gap to at least some degree.

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

This also means the variation percentages are misleading too? Like Kirby had a slight increase (32%) in sales over week 17 instead of 2.6 times like the % suggests.



Signature goes here!

Switch Sports first week was 190k, so it's second week is 114k. A 40% drop is excellent.
Wii Sports Resort was at just over 500k after two weeks. With digital included Switch Sports should be over 400k.

Yes, 165.3K followed by 70.8K.
