Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu Sales: Week 26, 2020 (Jun 22 - Jun 28)

Tagged games:

Japan also received a stimulus check from the JP government so maybe that could be helping as well. 100,000 yen (~$930 USD). Some areas got their paperwork earlier than others, so there could be a staggered effect.

The chain retailer I usually go to has lotteries for both the Switch console (AC version, regular version and Lite version) and a lottery for Ring Fit.

I expected less stock for this week, but meh... it's a guessing game. Next week should be lower than this one though.

The 2019 YTD continues to be off by 18 units in my table. I am still not sure why Famitsu did something to their old numbers and I can't be bothered to look up everything again because of such a small discrepancy.

Anyone have numbers to compare Switch's 6 months this year to the best ones from DS/3DS?

DS had quarter 2 alone sold over 2.5mil I think twice lol. But let’s do 3DS


first 2 Quarters (Fam)

2667k NSW-2020 (with massive shortages)

2285k 3DS-2012

1957k 3DS-2013

1485k NSW-2019

 



Wasn't there one article that stated Nintendo said that production and supply were starting to normalize. If that is the case We should see more stable shipments over the coming weeks.  



Switch to PS4 ratio at 13:1.

It's almost scary to see one system hold such a monopoly, thank god it's closer in the rest of the world to keep 'em honest. XD

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

Yea true, a monopoly is never amazing to have, hopefully Nintendo doesn't get lazy in japan or even WW if the next gen gets a disappointing start.

DS was a monster but these numbers help support the notion that Switch will outsell 3DS in Japan
