Lol ps4 sales man …… that stock is not it.

Sony discontinued PS4 Pro and all other models except the 500GB Jet Black standard slim model in Japan since January 5, 2021 (1 year).

OP: PS5 down YoY. XBS still out of stock. Mario Party outsold Pokemon again. 3DS is up YoY. Pretty good Switch hardware numbers. Another 10 % down YoY would still be very healthy for Switch, maybe even another 5m year possible in Japan.

There is no ps5 stock whatever Sony sends to Japan is what is sold. Regardless I believe they are tracking better than ps4 again in Japan? Any numbers on that?

I don't think that's the case anymore.  If I'm not mistaken, the PS5 has been on sale for 61 weeks by the time of this sales data.  The PS4 released in Japan on February 22nd, 2014.  After 61 weeks (week ending April 18th, 2015), the PS4 had sold 1,378,043 in Japan (vs 1,280,689 for PS5 up to this data).



A good result for 2022 this week. We are still in the Japanese holiday season, so a YOY deficit of less than 20k units qualifies as good damage control.

One more week of holiday sales until sales will begin to settle for a new baseline. However, with Pokémon Legends Arceus coming up, it will take until February before we can determine which level of weekly sales we can expect for most of 2022.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Shipments

this is week 2?

Yeah, they determine the new year based on the last day of the week.  Since last week ended on Jan 2, 2022, they considered it Week 1 2022.  So Famitsu week numbers will be one off of what most other lists (including VGC) use.

The thread title says Week 1 currently.

------------------------------

The gap with 2021 for Switch is acceptable much better than the more than 100k difference we saw end of December.



Signature goes here!

3DS up y on y

I don't understand how there are even any 3DS's left. Didn't they stop production like 16 months ago or something??



MK8D is like a Terminator in the charts it just keeps coming back.



Honestly pretty pathetic sales, not much else to say.
