Good ff7R numbers

Wow at Switch shortage
This week PS4 sold way more than Switch due to FFVIIR, not due to shortages.

UPDATE

Looks like Famitsu was correct about the 700k figure. And that is indeed lower than FFXV.

What we didn't know, however, was that the 700k represented 95% of shipments.
95% means sold out in most places. We also should consider that the share of digital sales increases over time so it should have been higher than in FFXV because of that. In addition to this, there's also coronavirus and the sold out which I assume it also pushed digital sales. In Japan they may be at 1M+ this week only.

That's odd that the original PS4 system is still outselling the Pro version. Hmmm, RE3 sales ain't doing so good.
Base PS4 always outsold Pro everywhere, same goes with base XBO vs X. They run the same games and are less expensive, and most people still don't have 4K HDR tvs at home to take full advantage of its benefits, so for most people it mostly would mean to pay extra to get only a small improvement in loading times and fps in most of the case. Which may not be enough for them to pay an extra.

Holy. Fucking. Shit. This game is a monster.
Technically, that should push the digital version right?

What are the odds of FFVIIR reaching classic numbers in Japan?
