Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu Sales: Week 49, 2020 (Nov 30 - Dec 06)

No big holiday title but AC is big enough to carry the Switch this holiday season. Nice numbers. PS5... i mean, i get it has shortages but like what console (except xbox) wouldn't sell out if it only sold like 200k in it's first 3-4 weeks of launch..

Is this a shortage thing, or did we just see PS5 flop in Japan?



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Next week Ring Fit is going to be over 100K, 

Just tracking it's performance on Amazon the past week, it's the first time the re-sell price is only 30% of the retail price. 



As much as Sony are focused on the west that is a shocking figure for a newly launched platform in the PS brand even with shortages I find it hard to believe they only managed to ship only 12k units to the region.

Wondering the same before throwing a "PS5 bombing" comment

Switch up YoY

Momotaro, ACNH and RFA are beasts

Well battle in Japan is over before it even started.. and 2021 should be even better for the Switch. Great news for Nintendo and its fans

For now it is a shortage. But it just goes to show how much faith Sony has for the PS5 in Japan.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Well, i personally think that they'll seriously start to fiercely money hat major licenses and make them time exclusive. For now they have two timed exclusivities from Square Enix one of which lasts "At least two years".

God knows what kind of attack they could manage to regain the market in japan, or worse, to sabotage it for nintendo.

They've got Square Enix as their major biatch to bring them full support, from software and many other jap third parties that would systematically put games on Playstation exclusively.

Till now, Square didn't put any decent effort on the switch, and probably won't. Even the Barevely default 2 is looking bad to what it was expected and to what is mainly brought on playstation.  



Shortages or not, this is the worst launch for a Playstation in Japan ever :(

Good numbers for the Switch that continues to push forward to become the best selling console in Japan.
