...man, those hardware numbers hurt to look at, less than 60k on all platforms combined?



Bet with PeH: 

I win if Arms sells over 700 000 units worldwide by the end of 2017.

Bet with WagnerPaiva:

 

I win if Emmanuel Macron wins the french presidential election May 7th 2017.

Sad, sad hardware sales all around. Let's hope God of War and Labo help boost things up.

It is the dull weeks before Golden Week and more dull weeks. However Sony is really dropping the ball on this one. 



 

Here is the week 15 update in terms of the two big consoles in Japan's path to be able to reach the commonly stated (in these sales threads) estimates for 2018 sales (2 mil for PS4, 4 mil for Switch) .

  TWS GD YTD AWN (Change)
PS4 10,964 -22,345 745,217 33,914 (+605)
Switch 36,308 -49,897 760,486 87,555 (+1350)

TWS - This week's sales
GD - Goal differential, the difference between the average week needed from last week compared to this week's sales
YTD - Units sold in 2018 so far including this week's sales
AWN - Average weekly sales needed to reach the estimate for the console.

Switch YTD has now passed up PS4. Both systems dipped in sales this week. PS4 is now at 1/3 its AWN and Switch is a bit under 1/2. Nintendo might have been conservative with Switch stock due to the Labo release next week and who knows what Sony is doing in terms of the PS4. If its baseline is only 10-15k then it will be a huge struggle to reach estimate even with a large holiday performance.

On a side note, Far Cry 5 has pretty damn good legs. Labo and God of War should make next week a lot more fun.



Wow, another low week for Sony. I have to wonder if new versions of both the Slim and Pro are being announced so Sony is emptying their stock



Switch friend-code: 6700-1526-7903

PSN: melbye82

The Switch has passed the PS4's YTD total in Japan with this week's numbers :

Switch: 760,486
PS4: 745,217

It's apparent that the market is entering its typically slowest period of the year. There's something called Golden Week coming up, but in the past few years it hasn't led to impressive sales, but rather been a short break inbetween the worst weeks of the year. Sales won't really pick up until June or even July, although game releases can of course create temporary spikes in the lowered baselines.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
