It's becoming increasingly unlikely that Switch will finish 2020 below 6.0m for the year. Switch Lite has clearly established itself as additive business, because the hybrid SKU keeps holding its own; despite no price cut, it's outpacing its own performance of 2019. The same holds true for global sales.

The big question is: Will the Switch be able to reach double the sales before the launch of the Lite makes that close to impossible? It's just 250k behind doubling last year's sales in the same timeframe, so it's quite possible if the sales can stay around 110k weekly.

Does it have a chance??? It has to do it before W38 but I dunno.... 110k weekly won’t do the trick, it has to be done by week 34 cuz 35-37 NSW would need 200k weeklys for. Check it out below....

2019 (x2) vs 2020!!!

W32: 3566k - 3314k

W33: 3666k

W34: 3726k

W35: 3907k 

W36: 4062k

W37: 4165k

W38: lol 

edit: it needs to sell 413k in 2 weeks, but the drop after ObON might be rough. I can see W33 doing 250k, if it does then it would need 163k the following week. Or maybe but only if W33 is massive with something like 300k then it’s definitely more doable with a follow up at 113k weekly

looking at week35 it needs just under 600k in 3 weeks, that’s when hope is lost imo. Let’s hope it gets 413k sales then!!

Yeah, I miscalculated. I took the numbers from now for last year instead of in 5 weeks, my bad. Which means it would need 172k per week, and that's just too much.

Let's not pretend there wasn't huge moneyhatting going on.

Sony doesn't even need to moneyhat Capcom anymore. Like most JP third parties, their best selling games of all time have happened due to the Playstation ecosystem and Sony knows that, so the will continue with that ecosystem.

Only third party franchise I can see Sony moneyhatting for domestic reasons is DQ12.

So you're saying that third parties should just ignore the Switch, even when its selling at a record breaking pace worldwide (especially in Japan)?

I hope DQ12 comes to Switch, alongside PS4 and/or PS5. It would be a waste and a shame to ignore an established userbase (in Japan and the rest of the world) that has already connected with DQ with the Builder games, DQXIS, and the first three games of the mainline series that were ported to Switch. Not to mention having the Hero included in Smash Ultimate, the best-selling fighting game of all-time.

Only if your going to that week, don’t lose  hope for these 2 weeks!!

Yeah it would be incredibly foolish not to release DQ12 on Switch when the series is Japan-centric in sales and Playstation as a platform is getting less and less relevant there.



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

Well yeah that's a no brainer. DQXI launched on 3DS so Switch will obviously take the place of 3DS. Probably only reason it launched (way) late on Switch is because development started way before the Switch launched since the game came out just a few months after the Switch launch, and they probably didn't make the Switch port a priority after that because having just launched they knew the Switch user base would be low for a bit.

DQXII will obviously have a same day launch on Switch and the Switch sales should completely dwarf Sony sales of the game.

At 3rd place Ring Fit Adventure is still sold by lottery. There were few new games released in August and up to 10th place all titles that ranked were released before July."

The PlayStation launch don't justified for SQE. It's a Horii will, only( he wants a DQ on Consoles). The norm maybe goes back because the sales go down( needs a portable for console support sales). DQ on the platform leader.

Tsutaya is bigger, right? 

Only Geo is 19% Animal Crossing Sales.

And Geo is more sony oriented games. Ghost of Tsushima is 30% of total sales.
