Were there stock issues for the switch? Like it sold surprisingly less than last week and would have easily defeated ps5 even if it stayed even.

I'm pretty sure they are holding back some stock for the double releases of Age of Calamity and Momotaro this week. So probably we'll reach 150k, if not more that week.



Around the Network

Last year had Pokémon Sword and Shield, this year has Sakuna and a Kingdom Hearts rhythm game. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity and the ensuing holiday boost will have to be good, otherwise 2020 will fall short of 6m. Nintendo's hardware forecast didn't make it any easier to judge how much stock will be available for the rest of this year, but what we know is that there's still unfulfilled demand in Japan, so even without a big holiday title Switch should be able to at least match last year's holiday sales.

Switch crossed 16m LTD this week. Animal Crossing is only one week away from crossing the 6m mark in physical sales. If I remember correctly, Nintendo's financial results already confirmed that by now New Horizons is the best-selling game of all-time in Japan, so the next target is 10 million before we'll move on to the @tbone51 BOLD prediction.

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

Even without a particularly huge opening PS5 outsold Xbox One LTD sales in week 1. Ouch.

That's hilarious! Also hilarious just another week for Switch and it sold 2000 less than PS5's launch week haha. Funny that the three companies are at such crazy different levels in Japan: DoA, weak to mediocre, and unstoppable.

Depends on how you count the Pokemon games.

Red/Green/Blue sold 10.23mil combined:  https://www.nintendo.co.jp/nom/0006/05/index.html 

Animal Crossing: New Horizon have sold 8.18mil: https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2020/200507_3e.pdf + https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2020/201105_4e.pdf

I don't count Blue towards the total.

This is a big week for software with 7 new titles in the top 10. However, Switch hardware looks like another typical week. Switch is down YoY this week. For whatever reason Nintendo isn't shipping hardware at holiday levels yet. Maybe next week? PS5 hardware isn't terribly impressive either only being a little above Switch on a launch week. Hardware shipments need to start increasing soon.



I find it funny resetera's people count Dragon Quest for PS5 exclusivity. 

I believe, with luck, Ps5 LTD  4-6.5M

If you know DQ history, the game launch on the top seller Japanese platform, the only exception is DQXI, because Horii will, and not go well. 

The only hopes are Monster Hunter and Final Fantasy, for a system sellers boost. 

One year we know the real potential sales of PS5. 



Painful launch for the PS5... Only marginally better than the awful PS3 launch in Japan, and only a third of the PS4. I can't see Japanese gamers going for it until the slim version releases..



Miles Morales tanked on both systems, really thought there was more hype, it's probably just in japan tho even tho the first spiderman did pretty well.Next week for Switch should be pretty big. Age of Calamity release + Ring Fit Switch bundle.
