Cyberpunk 2077 Fails to Top Top Sales at Japan Launch (Dec 7-13).
Cyberpunk 2077 fails to be the best seller of the week in Japan. Switch continues to lead sales in both consoles and games sold.
We bring you the data of sales of games in physical format in Japan (as always, thanks to Famitsu) during the week of December 7 to 13. That is, the week of Cyberpunk 2077. It seems incredible that seven days ago we were rubbing our hands over the launch, and a week later PlayStation has removed the game from the PS Store …
The CD Projekt RED game has received great reviews on its PC version (the PCs with better features, of course), but it is practically unplayable on its PS4 version. And they will have discovered that the hard way 104,687 people in Japan last week. It was the best premiere of the week, but the second best-selling overall, as it was surpassed by Momotaru Dentetsu: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban!
Although it does not sound like us here, Momotaro Dentetsu, for Nintendo Switch, is one of the most successful games of the year in Japan. It is a kind of Monopoly, a board game of buying property, with great emphasis on means of transportation.
In the top 10 games there are no more surprises, they are all Switch games with another novelty, Puyo Puyo Tetris 2. The Nintendo console continues to strengthen week after week, selling 229,600 units, compared to the 11,000 that PS5 sold, the 9,100 that sold PS4 and the 1,400 that sold Xbox Series X / S.
