Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu Sales: Week 28, 2020 (Jul 06 - Jul 12)

AC - 56,160 
RFA - 44,261

Obviously, AC has way more sales than RFA, but I'm still impressed that the legs of RFA are getting close to AC.  Also both are up WoW simply because more Switches were available.

RFA would sell 200k next week if Nintendo shipped it. RFA demand is so high, 2mil is a pessimistic prediction at this point. There is also the fact that numbers are missing as we have confirmation that Nintendo online store sold 150k copies by I think end of april



There are lotteries for both the Switch And Ring Fit Adventure.

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

TLOU2 just vanished

Anecdote, but the local chain store that I usually visit (GEO Hyper Media Shop) is dumping their TLOU2 Collector's Editions (the one that has the Ellie statue). 50% off less than a month from release, originally about $180USD (converted from JP yen) now half that. Maybe they take up too much space? Anyway, regular version is still normal price.

When I worked at retail, we hated dealing with collector's editions.  The kinds of people who are going to buy the collector's editions are generally always the people who are going to buy the game at least within the first couple of weeks, if not day 1. The company I worked for generally didn't discount them right away cause they're dumb and don't understand gaming, but we were encouraged by our particular store to discount them after a couple of weeks.  Honestly, I should have just bought some of them for myself and hung on to them for a decade or two, but that would have been too smart.

Is there still hope for the PS4 to reach 10 Million lifetime in Japan?

I predicted that it didn't have a chance in February. Corona helped the PS4 a lot more than I thought though.



6. [NSW] Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics – 20,094 / 215,305
13. [PS4] The Last of Us Part II – 4,223 / 218,191

It seems like we have to wait 1 more week until Clubhouse defeats TLOU2



Pocky Lover Boy! 

NSW - 23 (8 of which are third party)

PS4 - 7 (5 of which are third party)

This was a good week for PS4 third party games, since three new ones hit the charts.  In spite of that Switch still has 8/13 = 62% of third party games in the top 30 chart.  Even on a good week for PS4, Switch still has a majority of the third party games.

  • Ring Fit Adventure is set to become the 2nd best selling game on the Switch for 2020.
  • It's entirely possible with enough stock Ring Fit Adventure to sell over 1.5M units this year
  • Elsewhere Splatoon 2 and Clubhouse Games are both moving up the charts in the past few weeks
  • Next week eBaseball Powerful Pro Baseball 2020 will join the top 20 slottings in somewhere around 13-18th place
  • We are also expecting Paper Mario to sell around 100K at launch and have good legs in the coming months
  • I expect Pokemon Mystery Dungeon to eventually exit the Top 20 chart as more games are released this year. 


Seems like pokemon isn't selling more than 200k in the rest of the year

It makes me wonder how much the franchise is dependent of Christmas gift effect compared to other Nintendo IPs

Pokemon are always released on Christmas season or at least very close to it and its first quarter sales are always mindblowing, but their catalog sales are weaker compared to other Nintendo IPs

Curious to see how a Pokemon game would perform if it was released in March like Animal Crossing. How much weaker would be the first quarter and how better would be it's legs in the next quarters
