Animal Crossing inching closer to 7 million physically, a holiday bump might get it there by the end of the year.

7 million for physical alone is just a crazy number.  Does anyone know how much AC is up to with digital added in?

I am surprised Switch takes another L vs 2020, with the Pokemon and OLED this year vs Age of Calamity.

PS sales also disastrous, Stock probably won't come until late 2021, early 2022.

Overall a down year so far this holiday quarter.

How are you surprised Nintendo already adjusted their numbers down for the year and stated why. It isn't because there is not a demand, it's because of chip shortages. Can't sell what you can't make.

What do you mean? The chip shortage is just nintendos excuse for the cliff

Has Xbox ever outsold Playstation in Japan?

Because the way Sony is restocking the PS5, the Series X/S might win a week or two lol.

Only time I am thinking it would have been possible would be the launch of Blue Dragon and that week according to Media Create Xbox 360 sold 35,343 units, wihle PS3 sold 50,171 units. However, PS2 sold 30,460. So technically Xbox 360 did outsell the PS2 that one week in Japan.

Looks like the week the Xbox One launched also outsold the PS4. We have Xbox One at 24,795 for week ending September 6, 2014 and PS4 sales at 6,797 that one week.

As me an Rol already discussed. The impact should be miniscule if not nonexistent for the holiday quarter.

Here I will link you his post so I don't have to type it all out.

According to VGChartz the 360 has outsold PS3 in the period 2007-2009 in japan a few times, and even monthly in the month of september 2008 and august 2009.

Other than these few times, there are also others that were very close in this period.

3DS outsold PS4 this week.

Wait, really? That is crazy. PS4 launched three years later than 3DS in Japan. It overtook the handheld, but I guess Nintendo consoles after all have better legs than Sony ones, right?

No. PS4 has had no stock from Sony since the beginning of this year. They're moving over everyone to PS5 ASAP but the chip shortages has clearly limited the speed at which they can do that.



Disappointing numbers for SMTV, although inline with prior entries, thought the Persona boost and being on SW would result in a breaking of the mold. Interesting to see how the rumoured PS4 port will do.

The usual reason why Nintendo consoles have a shorter lifespan is exactly the same: usually Nintendo cuts them short by discontinuing production shortly after the release of the next gen. So the unusual part is, that Nintendo keeps selling 3DS, while this time Sony decides to cut production short in favor of next gen.
