Forums - Sales Discussion - Japan sales (Week 51): Media Create/Famitsu/Dengeki - December 18-24, 2017

Good Switch numbers despite not getting the 300K. It's still absolute domination though.

Surprised at 3DS a bit.

Xenoblade 2 has sold through 80-100%. Which is good, but they need more shipped asap. I wonder how the game did digitally. I can imagine that it's higher than usual since it's sold out in retail.

I was expecting at least 100k more Switch hw numbers.

Still supply? Or has it met the demand?

If there were no supply issues it be probably over 500k :p



Should't we be more happy that the Switch is succeeding rather than be upset at it not reaching our crazy high projections?

Switch is a sucess since Day 01, so is time to be upset with high projections

US&UM at almost 2M (1,985,852M) and Yokai Watch sold as much as the week before :)
I´m loving the Switch´s games numbers

I think the YTD number of the Playstation Vita is wrong in the op.



So essentially the Switch has outsold the Wii U in Japan by the end of this year.

Thanks for pointing it out. Fixed.



Idolmaster spoiling the top 10 party lol.

Anecdotal evidence was badly off this week for hardware sales. Too much weight is being put on it.



Like others I was hoping for 300k+ for Switch, so to see it just below 270k is a little dissapointing.
Mario Odyssey is an absolute beast over 1m already. Splatoon is doing well as always and I'm happy to see Arms with a shot at 300k+. Zelda is probably going to finish just below 800k.

Yokai Watch had a bad launch but a very soft drop this week and pokemon is doing well with the legs as well.
