You mistook "Pro Controller" for "Switch Pro"?

TOTAL: 4.112.358
TOTAL HARDWARE: 966.530

Q2 is going to be crazy compared to last year when we only had New Horizon making up more than 50% of Software sold. 

The only major new games which launched were Clubhouse Games: 51, Xenoblade Chronicles & Trials of Mana.

This year with Week 2 of Monster Hunter Rise being part of Q2, if it opens at 1.7M, Week 2 with a drop of 80% we'd be looking at 340K, than an average of 100K for the remaining 12 Week we'd be looking at at least 1.5M, this is the most conservative outlook for Rise I can come up with, in actuality I think it will be over 2M during Q2. 

Than we have the evergreens - Momotaro, Bowser's Fury & Ring Fit Adventure will be heading towards over 350K sales in Q2, while New Horizon & MK8D will be likely around 250K

There is actually a very strong line-up of new games launching through-out the next 3 months - Pokemon Snap, Rune Factory 5, Miitopia & Mario Golf being the ones that will easily break the 150K barrier. 

So just across the Top 10, I think we would easily surpass 4 million sales in Q2, while Hardware I think should be at least 1.3M compared to 966K last year. There will also be a bunch of new games & evergreens in the 50K to 150K range. The worst selling game in the Top 20 will be x2 or x3 higher than the bottom ranked DQXIS, Taiko and Mario & Sonic did last year.



Amazon Japan looking crazy now

I've heard of for years of how expensive video games are in Brazil. I think the import fees need to get reduced drastically so more Brazilians can enjoy gaming.
Vini64 (A YouTuber) said a Wii U in Brazil cost about $400 United States dollars. That's a increase of about $100.

Does that really matter though? 

A few years ago there used to be a ton of Japanese games that were either PS4 exclusive or PSVita/PS4 only.  At this point, the real question is if a third party game will be Switch exclusive or multiplat (and even then the Playstation version is going to be the worse seller).  When the top 30 looks like this, there isn't much incentive for a Japanese developer to make a Playstation exclusive game.  The only Playstation exclusives going forward are going to be a handful of big international titles like Final Fantasy and Resident Evil.  Every other Japanese third party game will be coming to Switch.

Don't know about that. Falcom have a Playstation exclusive coming out soon and Sega is still pretty adamant about not releasing Yakuza on Switch.

What Falcom game is that?



I am a Nintendo fanatic.

The HD remaster of Nayuta no Kiseki.

Next week is going to be the most interesting Famitsu in a long, long time, possibly since Animal Crossing, or possibly even longer as that was a first party game.



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



Monster Hunter Rise sold 1.3m in Japan ex-digital which is close to MHW 1.35m. Sell through 94% so few available. Total likely to be 2m or more (35-40% digital) in the period. Switch hardware 267k, up from 89k last week. PS5 hit 62k sales, 35k last week, best since launch week.
