Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu Sales: Week 17+18, 2024 (Apr 22 - May 05)

okay so is nintendo is going to sell 3M switches in japan they need to average 57.7k currently the weekly average is 57.1. I wonder if holiday sales will boost the average up enough. I think it can go either way. I really want to see how paper mario affects sales of switchs.

Switch it sold out in Japan. 😂 they will come back stronger next week

Considering that 70% of PS5 sales are digital, Stellar Blade must have sold 150 thousand copies including digital media.

Physical sales are higher in Japan than digital so it's more likely 100k total.

Considering this is 2 weeks, including Golden Week, Switch hardware looks low. Switch hardware sales were going really strong for the past month or so, even with no holiday or notable release.

For yet another twist the Switch sells worse during Golden Week than it was for the previous few weeks. I guess that retailer deal really was making a big difference. Definitely a weak GW overall but that's fine since the 2025 one should be significantly better.

Because sales aren't based on Japanese consumers, the Japanese holidays don't mean much. Maybe a bit too presumptuous, but Japanese people like to travel during Golden Week, so a lot of people will be out of major shopping centers or in Hawaii/Guam etc.

Software top 30 sales for each of week 17 & 18 now posted. Hardware splits will probably be available next week.

Switch: SW-3707-5131-3911

Always nice to see a new IP take first place.

Good debut for Stellar Blade.

Xbox Series X|S 2024 has now surpassed 2023 YTD.

Seems like Microsoft is sending to the East the units people are not buying in the West, which is kind of ironic. I think theres is still some of that Palworld effect at play here. It will be interesting to see how that market will react to the latest debacle, if at all.

I wonder how many Korean developed games have made an impact on the charts in Japan?

Please Watch/Share this video so it gets shown in Hollywood.

I know Lies of P was one that sold a good amount in Japan.
