Hardware is stock limited all around. I mean, PS5 Digital Edition is practically invisible. Switch sells less than last year, even with a Pokemon release. At least it is better than last week.

To have relation for Software: does anyone have historical numbers for Pokemon remakes and Battlefield?

Looks like ORAS sold 1.5 M. first three days

HGSS sold 1.5 M. first two days

FRLG sold 885 thousand first week.

The numbers are for Japan.

So it's probably safe to assume that with digital BDSP matched or sold more than ORAS and HGSS.

Bad week for Playstation hardware for sure. I'm surprised there's still some new 3DS to be found since they stopped producing them a long time ago. Switch OLED seems to still be selling according to supply.

Yep 17th September 2020 is when 3ds production was confirmed to have ended. So somehow over a year later there's apparently still thousands of brand new 3ds units available.

You would have thought they would have all been flogged by shops at discount rates ages ago.

Strangely enough apparently every single model sold is the 2DS XL too.

They stopped counting the New 3DS/XL at the end of 2020 when it sold below 50 units per week.

Thx for the numbers, and yeah, physically it is lower, but probably digital is higher on Switch than it was on 3DS.

BD/SP's opening is the second biggest for the Switch in Japan in physucal sales only behind Animal Crossing. I think digital is now bigger than it was 2019, so it probably also sold better digitally than Sw/Sh.

Predicting 4.5-5mil lifetime sales. 18mil worldwide.

Hmm, so 2042 seems a bit weak, even accounting for eventually higher digital.

So weird to see the Switch still below the 3DS in Japan despite overselling it completely in global.

I really wonder if it will manage to reach DS levels. 2 stuff:
- the DS pretty much died in its 5th year (reaching 29 million in 5 years and 3 million in the coming 3 years after that)
- the Switch seems to have a longer run, so another year at 5+ million should do the trick

Oh yeah these will probably be the best selling remakes I imagine. Pokemon as a franchise is a lot more popular now than it was in 2010 and 2014 when the last remakes came out, also the Switch has a much more active userbase than the DS and 3DS which will also push sales up higher than the last two remakes.
