With August firmly behind us, there’s been more than enough time to crunch the numbers for game sales around the world. Today, we have the breakdown of both hardware and software sales in Japan for August 2023. Let’s kick things off with the top 10 physical game sales of last month.


Once again, the Switch absolutely dominated the top 10, losing just one place to a PS5-exclusive title. With the Switch 6+ years old at this point, you know Nintendo couldn’t be happier to see their hardware and software still killing it like this.

We also have the data on hardware sales in Japan for August 2023, which are as follows:

  • Switch sold 334,000 units across all three of its models, but is down 18% month-on-month
  • PS5 sold 181,000 units, marking a 25% month-on-month decline
  • Xbox doubled combined sales of X/S, but this amounted to just 10,000 units
