Somewhere. I think.
Bit disappointed by LM3 FW, but not worried for the game in the long run. Great Switch boost thanks to the Pokémon Lite model.

Now Mario & Sonic, definitely wasn't expecting that low an opening.

Nice for Persona, just ok for Luigi’s and Ring Fit holding despite being out of stock.

Pokemon Switch Lite doing great !

Good start for P5R and okay for Luigi, CoD had a good drop too.

RingFit still impressive.

Beast. There were even stock issues!

Switch lite is responsible for this week's boost, good number I'd say. LM3 did alright, well short of LM2's 300k debut, but vouchers should put it closer, at least to 200k I'd think. Legs will now determine if it can eventually outsell LM2 or not.

P5R is very good for an enhanced rerelease, nice number there.

Despite the Pokémon bundle, OG Switch is stable. Holidays will be huge and this can be seen by October sales.

Luigi's Mansion did a bit below expectations FW but digital and legs should make up for it. I'd say a million is still in the cards.

RingFit is amazing.

Switch hybrid model still not being effected by lite, I'm really surprised that lite seems to be finding it's own market.

Ring Fit Adventure and DQXIS continue to show great legs.

Not sure about LM3's debut, coupons might have helped it though. P5R did okay I guess.

Great hardware sales for Switch, wasn't expecting that.

Week 1 Media Create:
PS4: Persona 5 - 264,793
PS4: Persona 5 Royal - 201,448
Vita: Persona 4 Golden - 137k
PSP: Persona 3 Portable - 108k
PSP: Persona 1 - 95k
PS3: Persona 5 - 72,794
PSP: Persona 2 IS - 62k
PSP: Persona 2 EP - 24k

For an expanded rerelease, that's pretty good, I'd say.

EDIT: Added first week Japanese sales of the various other portable Persona enhanced rereleases (P1-4).

Switch should be very close to 3m before even Pokemon week. Almost up 1m YoY, it is impressive.

Ring Fit is very close to tripling its first week sales after three weeks, it's insane! Third week sales are 75% of first week sales, and they are hindered by stock to some degree. Next week probably shows a bigger drop due to waxing stock issues, but it might just pass 200k by then. The holidays should be insane for this title as well: it's really showing the legs of a beast, and if stock is there, then we could see 100k+ weeks, even.

Persona has a very loyal fanbase for sure.

LM3 is probably a FE situation. Many voucher sales.

2 did 300k FW, slightly over 1m LTD. Think it definitely can match (and even surpass LTD sales), but we'll see. Next update from Nintendo will be telling as for LTD potential for this game.

GC one opened at 116k, and went to 350k LTD.
Digital and coupons probably hurts the physical sales, but yeah, LM2 did amazing.

Persona 5R over 200k retail only and takes top spot! Fantastic.

The special Pokémon lite edition having a good effect too.

So Switch Lite increased massively but notably Switch OG is still at 55k.
There was a special Pokémon handheld model released. I don't know if the hybrid model got it also but probably not.

This week confirms that PS4 will have dire numbers in Japan until it's discontinued.
Even then, the next hardware moving release is in March. If they discount it for the Holidays, Jan-Feb will be even lower.

They need a permanent price cut but with the PS5 around the corner, they might not want to.

Ring Fit is absolutely nuts. I really hope Nintendo can get the stock situation sorted out for the holiday season because it'll be fascinating to watch if it's well stocked.

Was there a game bundled with the Lite model?
I find it strange that we see 100K HW but none of the evergreens got an increase and Luigi Mansiom is average.

PS5 will be likely very expensive. Sony probably don't want to make the price gap between PS4 and PS5 extremely high. Perhaps they even want to continue PS4 for a few years as low entry model until PS5 prices comes down.

How are DQXIS legs compared to DQXI?
DQXI S:
2nd week: -81%
3rd week: -56%
4th week: -38%
5th week: -30%
6th week: -23%

1st week divided by 6th week = 35.46

DQXI PS4:
2nd week: -82%
3rd week: -57%
4th week: -15%
5th week: -64%
6th week: -27%

1st week divided by 6th week = 59.26

DQXI 3DS:
2nd week: -77%
3rd week: -55%
4th week: -20%
5th week: -67%
6th week: -1%

1st week divided by 6th week = 36.86

Lower is better for the division of 1st by 6th week. DQXI is legging negligibly better than the 3DS sku, and noticeably better than the PS4 sku in terms of relative sales.
