Ignoring this "first 8 weeks" thing, anyone got a list of, say, the top 20 best selling games in Japan lifetime?

Thanks, I couldn't figure out how to make VGChartz do it haha.

So still a long climb for Switch's games, but it has time on its side, so I wouldn't be at all surprised if Animal Crossing New Horizons and Sword/Shield climb pretty close to the top lifetime.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

It doesn’t have shipment+Digital here? AC NL was at 5.79mil as of Dec 2018



well no, hard to track digital sales for a specific reigion.



That list states it doesn't include digital and the highest switch title there is Smash Bros Ultimate at 3.6 m 



Even with out digital some of the numbers don't seem accurate tbh as games where digital wasn't a factor aren't the same as figures elsewhere for example R/B/G sold 10m by the end of 2008 according to Famitsu.

What's up with the above list? Why is it adding Yellow and Crystal to the totals when those are improved third versions released at a later date? That's nonsensical.



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

Thats so Famitsu. Maybe they even add digital estimates to Pokemon Red/Blue/Green/Yellow ;)

Well those are ioi data. We have no idea where he got it from.

I only have one souce and that one is also hard to tell.
The 2019 databook of the computer entertainment suppliers association lists Pokemon Red/Blue/Green/Yellow/Gold/Silver/Crytal at 23M

They don't split it up for god knows what reason.
