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

Pacman is already closing his mouth again.

Nice to see Switch up significantly over last week, and Momotaro is performing great.

I don't know which reason is the right one between "Sony cares so little of Japan sales that it hasn't bothered to send more than 12k consoles" or "Japanese consumer care so little about the PS5 that 12k is all they were able to sell" but either way that's not positive.

It's probably both.



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

Wow not even 1 PS5 game in the top 30. This might turn out to be the worst selling PS console in Japan in both hardware and software but too soon to tell



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Oh boy, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate getting really close to 4 million!



I have a Youtube channel... A Twitter, and... Yeah.

I don't think anyone expects PS5 to be anything other than the worst selling PS console in Japan in both hardware and software. Playstation is on the decline in Japan as Nintendo is set to continue its domination of the country. Though this launch/holiday period has so far been beyond abysmal for the PS5.

I wonder if in the next few years we'll see Japanese-centric third party games move from Playstation to the Switch and later Switch 2 as it really doesn't make sense to make big huge AAA games geared toward the Japanese market exclusively for a system that is probably only going to sell at best 8 million systems in the country when the Switch will likely top 30 million.

It depends. It would be ridiculous if Dragon Quest 12 didn't prioritize the Switch/Switch 2.
Final Fantasy? Hard to say. Square has committed to PS5 for FF16, I can't see that changing for FF17 very easily... Maybe if Dragon Quest sells something like 6M+ on Switch.

If Xenoblade Chronicles X2/3, or whatever Monolithsoft's next project is, sells ridiculous numbers on Switch, FF17 might be on Switch 2 or 3.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

imagine Xenoblade 3 selling more then FF16, at least in japan, finally proving mololyth's (former square devs) vision for final fantasy was the correct one lol



Damn this Switch's sales from last week nearly equaled the PS5's lifetime sales numbers....
