Around the Network

Nice hold for the Switch. Still ahead of last year and MHR doing great despite Capcoms undershipping.



Is there a breakdown of digital sales in Japan? Looking at the numbers here, and after Capcom announcing 2.5m sold in Japan, MHR digital sales stand at 1m which is a very high ratio



Switch base model is almost down where the Lite model is in sales. Does this mean it is already in short supply?



Great hold for the Switch, Lite and Hybrid and almost 50/50 which means there's supply problems for the hybrid version.

PS5 will have to wait a bit to pass PS4's total launch aligned but its sales are much more healthier than the PS4 at that point.

Signature goes here!

Expected more like 400k-500k from MHRise this week. Massively undershippped? Lots of copies going digital? Is that right about Capcom confirming that 1 million sold digitally?

Clutching my pearls because I predicted it would pass it by the time RE8 releases

It would be high for Rise due to the game having access to the portable side of the fanbase as well. Historically the portable side of MH moves 4-5m and Capcom undershipped Rise which would cause people to get the digital version as MH is that popular for that side of the fanbase.

They haven't announced that.

Undershipped.  Capcom confirmed 5M Shipped + Digital globally last week and David Gibson confirmed that Japan was just >50% of that 5M, so JP is sitting at >2.5M in this same time frame (through Apr 4).  

Also OG Switch fell 63% from last week.  Supply has tightened up with Lite representing almost 47% of sales this week (compared to 19% last week).
