Weekly sales figures
On Fridays (Japan Standard Time), the official Japanese website is
updated with the top fifty selling video games of the previous week,
as well as hardware sales figures for the
Nintendo Switch, Nintendo
Nintendo DS Lite, Wii, PlayStation 3, Sony PSP, PlayStation 2,
GameCube, Game Boy Advance,
Game Boy Advance
Game Boy Advance SP, Game Boy Micro, Xbox,
and Xbox 360. Sales numbers are only provided for the top twenty games
on the list, but figures exist for the rest of the games on the list
and beyond; they must be paid for and subscribed to. The English
website only posts the placement rankings of games and the percentage
ranking of hardware.
Media Create competes with Enterbrain's
Famitsu and MediaWorks'
Dengeki PlayStation in the market for providing Japanese game sales
data. Because there are three different tracking firms, there will
always be three different sales numbers for any software and hardware
title. Which company to trust is a matter of debate, as none of the
three major trackers are ever 100% accurate and whoever tracks the
highest amount of sales for a given title fluctuates.
