Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu Sales: Week 3, 2021 (Jan 11- Jan 17)

There is no way I would have predicted Switch hardware sales being up WoW.  Momotaro is the only game up WoW, so that must be driving it.

Momotaro keeps getting more powerful and powerful. Wtf is up this game? Is it a meme in Japan at this point?

3rd party games don't sell on Nintendo hardware..... oh.

No one told Japan.

If Momotaro Dentetsu keeps Rank#1 in next week ranking, it breaks the record of continuous 1st place in the chart.

Just for the Switch or in general?

Looks like Nintendo missed the memo that sales are supposed to go down after the holidays.

LMAOOO. Literally tho, i was expecting it to drop significantly this week. Oh well. 



So the next big PS5 game for Japan is RE8 which is coming out in May and is cross gen with PS4.

Gonna be a rough year for the PS5 in Japan.



Switch outsells PS5 + PS4 combined by almost 17:1.

This is NES levels of near-monopoly.



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

Wow I was expecting Switch to be in the 90-110k range, it being slightly up is incredible. At most just half of the Japanese holiday period was a part of this week I think so it not being down is a very good sign for its prospects this year. I'm beginning to think the Switch being up overall this year might have a bit of a chance.



For reference, PS4 Hardware & Software in 2014 (excluding Knack that did 99% of its sales through bundling, basically the Astro's Playroom equivalent except that it wasn't preinstalled).
