The new Famitsu charts show how well each console has recently sold in Japan. You can also see which games were most popular.

The PlayStation 5 hasn't sold nearly as well as it did last week. Compared to the previous week, the Sony console sold around 60,000 units, but it was exactly 51,510 sales last week.

The PS5 maintains its lead in terms of sales. The OLED version of the Switch only received a little over 37,000 customers.

All three Switch models have sold almost 60,000 units together, making the PS5 the most successful gaming console in history.

The PS5 in Japan will have a new milestone, according to recent reports. The two models sold more than three million times.

The Xbox Series X is up for the eighth place again, but it is down for the eighth. In between, the PlayStation 4 is down, but the new 2DS XL and the regular 2DS follow.


PS5 – 51.510 Switch OLED – 37.373 PS5 without disc drive – 13.359 Switch – 12.354 Switch Lite – 10.174 Xbox Series X – 2.729 PS4 – 1.602 Xbox Series S – 158 New 2DS XL (including 2DS) – 95

Three PlayStation versions of the games are currently on the market. One is "Hogwarts Legacy," which has been on the charts for a month. As always, switch games dominate the rest.


Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe – 32.132 (Switch) Splatoon 3 – 15.861 (Switch) Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse – 10.712 (Switch) Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 10.430 (Switch) Ib – 9.080 (PS5) Hogwarts Legacy – 9.411 (Switch) Octopath Traveller II – 7.739
