Forums - Sales Discussion - Japan Sales Week 13, Famitsu. March 25-31

Seems like the PS4 train is slowing down. Needs a permanent pricecut.
Switch almost at 50k! And the legs of Switch games are flashing on the top 10!

Shouldn't we get one last MC this week?



Are Yoshi games not that popular in Japan? 50k seems kinda low.

Someone at COMg said that past yoshi games were all about the legs. It will eventually sell 300k+

Minecraft takes the number 5 spot after being out for who knows long, and it's a Western game. That is still impressive.

There are only 2 days counted with Yoshi here, it might be a little bit for something.

LET'S FACE THIS FACT : The Switch is the last physical video game system of the history who has a chance to beat PS2's sales.

50.000 hmmm. Nothing special. So what are these people who buys switch every week play? When you look at the numbers if its not Zelda Mario Smash Splatoon its really difficult to be succesfull on Switch. When you look at waht sells on Switch first are the Nintedo evergreens then ver very very long nothing, then at the end some indie and ports. Switch is a great heanheld but its going into the same problems as in the past: YOU buy nintedo machine for nintendo games.

I’m not sure what you are trying to say. Evergreens are that for a reason, they sell forever. Third parties game come and go, just like on other systems. 



Coming from MC, these numbers looks ... irregular ? I mean I don't know, feels like they undertracked this week heavily ...

Golden week is coming up, I expect some also believe in the switch two new versions information.
