Famitsu has released their Japanese sales numbers from November 4 through November 11 for both hardware and software. The Nintendo Switch and the Switch Lite eviscerated the competition in hardware sales, with the PlayStation 4 Pro finishing in a distant third place. This isn’t completely surprising considering the PlayStation 4 is winding down, but Death Stranding did just release, so the disparity in the numbers is rather startling. The PlayStation Vita finished in last place, selling a laughable 22 units.
