Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu sales: Week 2, 2022 - (3rd Jan - 9th Jan)

Honestly, pretty good numbers for Switch, only a bit over 10% down from this week in 2021, when it was coming off it's peak calendar year.

It may be nearly 5 years old, but it can still gallop like a champion.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

30/30 for Switch again.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Holy shit! Also I'm seriously impressed by how big the impact of BotW getting first place on that poll had on it's sales.



I guess Kirby won't have any chance to compete against Monster Hunter Rise sales. So we should see an increasing gap in March again.



The lack of big releases really hurt the Switch in Japan. Gonna be tough watching the YoY comparisons from now on



Proud poster of the 10000th reply at the Official Smash Bros Update Thread.

tag - "I wouldn't trust gamespot, even if it was a live comparison."

Bets with Conegamer:

Pandora's Tower will have an opening week of less than 37k in Japan. (Won!)
Pandora's Tower will sell less than 100k lifetime in Japan.
Stakes: 1 week of avatar control for each one.

Mario Party above Pokémon these last two weeks

All the Mario titles in the top 30, his power is something else 

Breath of the Wild keeps killin' it

Great numbers for the Switch with not that big of a YoY drop though the one on Week 1 was kinda harsh



This marks the 6th time that Switch has swept the top 30, and the 4th time in the last 5 weeks. As far as I know, nothing is coming out for Playstation that may crack the top 30 until February, so the Switch just might sweep the whole month.

That is beyond insane.

The IGN list or some other poll?

No, not IGN, that one had predetermined choices. Here's what I'm talking about:
