Hold on, PS5 Switch just outsold in Japan



Regular readers will know all too well that we don’t cover Japanese sales charts these days because Nintendo is just so dominant that it hardly counts as PlayStation-related news. But today, things are different.

The latest Japanese hardware is in the charts, and, surprisingly, the PS5 actually managed to outsell the Nintendo Switch last week. Not much, but it happened.

Famitsu has the PS5 at 38,866 units, while the Switch moved 38,634 units. Again, we’re talking a minor win here – but a win all the same.

So how is this possible? Well, as we’ve seen everywhere else in the world, a massive surge in PS5 stock has boosted sales numbers across the board – and it’ll be a similar story in Japan.
