Japan sales (Week 30) Media Create/Famitsu/Dengeki - July 23-29, 2018

Forums - Latest Charts - Japan sales (Week 30) Media Create/Famitsu/Dengeki - July 23-29, 2018

Here is the week 30 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 18,645 -22,850 1,064,247 42,534 (+1039)
Switch 48,370 -66,179 1,413,731 117,557 (+3008)

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.

As expected, the MHW bundle does absolutely nothing for PS4. Why would they even bother with a bundle for a price that's more expensive than buying the two items separate? Both systems drop after the Amazon Prime Day bump is over. Pace continues the same. Obon is just around the corner which will play a big part in the Switch being able to slow down its rapidly increasing AWN.

Switch hardware sales staying steady at a baseline in the high 40 thousands. Splatoon 2 will hit 2.5 million at retail in Japan next week, also did Switch have two Mega Man skus?

The big releases in Japan this time last year are starting to take their toll, confident Switch will manage to make it out up year over year in time for it's big holiday line-up.

Actually, I'm pretty sure there are 3 Rockman X SKUs. The Rockman X Collection (has X1 - X4) and the Rockman X Collection 2 (has X5 - X8) and then the bundle SKU which has both collections included.

The couple of local places I've checked out have been sold out of Octopath. I've been thinking about picking it up, but haven't seen it in stock.

The closest store to me, still has like 4 placeholder boxes (that you would take up to the counter to purchase the game), but with sold out markers on them instead of the "new" or "used" markers. The promotional video for the game is still playing for the game on the main aisle as well with all of the new/newest releases. S-E needs to sort out their stock issues, especially with the Obon holidays coming up soon.

PS4 almost at 7M+ in Japan, it won't take much anymore until PS4 reaches PS3 lifetime sales.

Will it reach it though? Ps4 is ahead but isn't ps3 just over 10mil sold?



NSW is still king in Japan



My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

How many PS3s were sold at $100.00 or less off its initial MSRP? From what I understand the bulk of its sales were after massive price drops which the PS4 hasn't had up till yet.

Octopath Traveler doesn’t seem to be THAT popular, all those reports of selling out seems more like a case of severe under shipping.

You haven't heard? It's going to sell 5 million lifetime. Or 3 million at the very least.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

Was the MH bundle also last week?

Says July 26th, which was last Thursday. 

I see. It seems like whoever wanted the game got it in the first couple months.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Switch just nonchalantly dominating everything

Those massive price cuts were to get it into the price range that PS4 is currently in.

At this point in PS3 life it was 29,980 yen vs PS4 at 34,980 yen, not a massive difference.
