Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu Sales: Week 38, 2022 (Sep 12 - Sep 18)

Also another note, nsw hardware selling out. Possibly shortages as well. Splatoon 3 is also a huge system seller so we can put that to rest as well. Even if splatoon 2 sold 5mil, there will be 3mil-5mil new consumers in the next few years with splatoon 3 as that game will sell over 8mil lifetime In japan

Hope Nintendo has enough stock to be above 120k the rest of the year !

+250k each week of December !

This would lead to even still beating 2021. I really do not think this will happen. The probability for that should be almost 0%.



Japanese Nintendo Switch shipments will be way up in FYQ2 from the 720k shipped last quarter. Famitsu sales are looking like 1.2m for the quarter and FYQ2 shipments are usually around 200k higher than famitsu sales (this differs for other quarters), so we could be seeing a 1.4m shipment for Japan. If all other regions are flat then FYQ2 global could be 4.1m, however Other should be 300k higher due to really low shipments last quarter so i think 4.4m is possible.

XBSX outselling the PS5 ? in Japan ? Unbelievable.

3rd time it's happened this year. And this was almost entirely Series S sales.

Wonder how many more times That can happen.

This is the PS5 price hike week. In terms of actual sales to Japanese customers, Series S may have doubled PS5 here which is embarrassing but deserved. Strong DQX Offline opening on Plyastation all things considered. Switch continues to Switch.

I don't get it. Last week ps5 was selling 2k but now with the price hike it sold almost 5 times more this week

PS5 was always sold for less than it's true worth if we think about it, that's why it was always sold out

When enough people can get their hands on PS5 and sales finally decrease I can see Sony decreasing the price back to the launch, not before 2024 though

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)
