Holy crap, that's pretty amazing. I suppose the Pokemon craze's word-of-mouth could be causing a snowball effect in Japan, where NSW hardware was flat the week after Pokemon.
Are digital sales reflected for any of the platforms in Famitsu charts? What about the worldwide sales estimates here on VGC? Do those estimate digital? I'd be interested in that metric being estimated to get a clear picture of the market. I wonder which console has the biggest digital market.
Digital sales are not included in the weekly Famitsu charts.
VGC now puts shipment numbers on game pages, those numbers are shipped physical copies plus sold through digital copies. VGC articles usually state if their numbers are retail-only, retail plus digital sell-through, or shipped.
The digital share of global game sales should be the highest on Xbox, slightly ahead of PS; but overall more digital games are sold on PS due to the big discrepancy in installed bases. Switch has the lowest digital share by a notable margin.
