Here is the week 31 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 22,026 -21,628 1,105,275 44,736 (+1082)
Switch 50,143 -70,593 1,514,673 124,266 (+3530)

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.

Not much change as PS4 stays around ~20k and Switch around ~50k. The AWN is starting to accelerate more rapidly as fewer weeks remain. Next week's numbers will be Obon. Switch should do really well that week.

Is Obon known for big hardware boosts? I was thinking it was smaller than Golden Week.

Octopath Traveller still holding strong.



Signature goes here!

I'm not too sure. I'm just going by what the MC thread on resetera has been saying for awhile. Since it's like a full week of holidays and Japan loves to shop on holidays there should be a a pretty big increase.



SW baseline = 39500
PS4 baseline = 17834
Another healthy week for SW. A little increase in PS4 also

They should have done more work with Yakuza 3 at this point just get ps now for cheap for a month or two and you can play 3 to 5.

Sony got no legs



Pocky Lover Boy! 

50k baseline. At this pace it will be at 5 million sold in a matter of weeks. The Switch is simply dominating in Japan.



Liberate Hong Kong, the revolution of our times!

Meanwhile, there are 4 Switch titles in the top 20 that released in 2017.

Hiska Kun gave some 3DS Obon numbers for reference. He didnt include 2011 or 2012 because they had a price cut and revision but here are 2013 & 2014 pre-Obon and Obon weeks.

2013, 58k to 70k

2014, 40k to 52k

 

So i guess ~60k give or take would be a decent result for Switch next week.
