Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu sales: Week 13, 2021 - (Mar 22 - Mar 28)

Sold less physically than monster hunter world on the ps4, I did not expect that, and since Switch always sells relatively less digitally than PS consoles, its going to be a bit lower when you add digital. However I do expect over time the Switch will outsell the PS4 version in Japan.
Good switch numbers though this week

PS5 - 62,295

Seems like the PS5 is doing pretty well.

Yes, this is the best week for PS5 since launch.  Must have gotten a nice stock bump as it was consistently 30K - 40K the last few weeks.



SW-3707-5131-3911

Rise wins the week as expected. Seems Capcom understocked it a bit. Switch is up, but not as much as with Animal Crossing last year.

Yeah Monster Hunter World sold to about 1/3 of all PS4 owners, I think Monster Hunter Rise can hit at least 1/5 of Switch owners.

One other note: Switch sales passed 19M LTD in Japan this week. (I miss Marth and his table when he did these posts!)

Am I a joke to you ?

The Switch reaches 19 million in Japan, and still keep its lead over last year. That's huge

Mostly due to stock issues, 94% of the physical release were sold.

More Switches sold in Japan than PS5 & PS4 WW last week

I can't recall. What was the sell through for Monster Hunter World physical during the first week?

Do we have comparisons with Worlds physical release and sell through? And digital for that matter. I'm surprised considering how much bigger Switch's install base was but I guess its software market (in terms of big sellers) is more crowded than PS4's.



The Astro Bot demo must be red hot in Japan
