Switch and Splatoon continuing their domination.

DQ:X sold great. Shouldnt be any arguments about future DQ games skipping Switch.

PS5 is disappointing this week.
Great for XBS

The whole DQ argument I been seeing is mute. Anyone thinking DQXII is skipping nsw isn't paying close attention to the market.

Splatoon 3's total with the known digital numbers would already put it above 4m in the region and with in a week as well.

Can't remember the second games total but I think S2 with digital would be pass the 5m mark.

Splatoon 2 was at 5.11mil with digital as of the end of March 2022. Splatoon 3 should surpass it this month, within 3 weeks.



DQ X Offline's sales result makes it even more obvious that future DQ games will all be on Nintendo systems. It has also been completely sold out. A big second week drop wouldn't be surprising.

Concerning XBS sales I think this still just represents what has been shipped to the country.

From now on we will most likely see a lot of Xbox outselling PS in Japan until a big PS release, or stock increase due to price hike.



Holy crap... Series S alone outsold the PS5 disc/digital combined. what's next, dogs and cats living together????



What's very interesting is that Splatoon 3 was the most viewed console game streamed in China by a large percent, despite the game not having an official launch in China yet. This further proves that consoles from different region (most likely Japan) goes to China, since the Chinese version of the Switch is apparently region locked. So out of the 127,000 Switches that were sold in Japan this week, there is a possibility some of that is exported to China/other region every week.



Good performance on Xbox. This is a huge turnaround from the One in Japan which was like not present at all basically. Switch staying at high grounds for HW, didn't think a game would give it a solid boost like that from hardware over several weeks. S3 really is a big system seller even if S2 was already on Switch. We can thank the amazing OLED edition which they killed it on the design.

I wonder how big of a system seller Pokemon S/V will be.



Wow to Xbox!! This week Xbox sold almost a quarter what its YTD numbers were from last year at this time! Crazy how much it has grown in Japan this year. Lack of desire for and lack of availability of PS5 is giving Xbox a huge opportunity in Japan.

Switch killing it again. 500k S3 sales! So with digital that means it should be over 4.1m now after two weeks. It will soar over 5m (with digital) in October. By end of next month only AC, Smash, MK, and maybe Sw/Sh will be beating it in Japan.
