Ninjala...I think is a free to play game, so not sure why there are physical copies being sold.  

They usually give you some cosmetics and in game currency, they do it because they get sales. Fortnite did. Some Grandparents, uncles etc know that kids like it so they buy it when they see it on stores shelves. Easy sales so it will keep happening. 

TLDR: Store Shelves= visibility and extra sales compared to digital only.

Sony better be readying a PS5 Portable if they want the have any sway in Japan going forward. Dedicated Home Consoles are just not clicking with the Japanese consumers.

A Handheld, built on the PS5 architecture, with reductions to target 1080p would already be possible, but not ideal. Going to 5nm will give them the energy savings they need to make such a machine viable.

I’ll never stop holding out hope for a proper 3G Vita successor. I still believe a PS Phone in the proper Handheld Form Factor, with a unified OS and Library could set new records for PS hardware in Japan, and become a very successful expand of the PlayStation brand.

A ps phone doesn't work, The game must be the first. Sony have to assume a portable game device or go a hybrid route. The two choices diminished the stationary  Sony premise: a powerful PC casual box. The handheld exclusive diverges sony efforts to the main force. And the second needs new design around the hybrid route and it's a different path, PS5 hybrid is not gonna work, sony need deviation of the current course. 

The way sony regain JP market is a disruptive route. 



Wtf with these Animal Crossing numbers

So can we expect 7 million sales by the end of the year?



HORY SHIT that AC

Nope, it's Pokémon Sword/Shield and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate combined vs. Animal Crossing: New Horizons on its own.



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

When a game comfortably beats all available data for other games, then it's necessary to come up with a comparison that is interesting.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons' sales progression is unprecedented in the Japanese market. All other games of the all-time top 10 needed much longer to clear the 5m mark.
