Yeap and another increase hopefully huge will be great for 2019. Does suck it didnt do 4mil last year but this year is achievable

Honestly, it could either be spun as a good or a bad thing ... 

While the Switch did come out on top compared to 2017, it got the benefit of 2 extra months and no stock issues ... 

The Switch did "alright" all things considered ... 

2 extra months isnt relevant, launch month easily cancels out 2 regular months

Switch and PS4 did fine in 2018 (Not home runs, but not awful). Will be interesting to see how they are doing post in February and March as the dust settles.

Smash ends up being the best selling title on both Media Create and Famitsu, I honestly did not think that would happen (I knew Smash would do well, but it really shot up fast).

Dragon Quest Builders for the Switch beat the PS4 one, which is also surprising, since PS4 has been largely getting every Dragon Quest game and the one that Switch got before this was on PS4 first.

Judge Eyes does well for the third week, which is healthy for new IP. Showcasing better legs.

A lot of games continue to have amazing legs, and see you guys in an hour for part 2 of media create I assume?

Media Create week 52 & week 1 are tomorrow.

Famitsu week 1 is friday

I was wondering why Chris had 300,000 for switch last week.

Switch didnt have a huge YoY increase but it did have a much bigger holiday.

Weeks 1-45 were down ~4%
Weeks 46-52 were up ~26%

This strong holiday performance should give early 2019 some extra momentum.

Just noticed the bizarre spike in DQ Builders 2 sales on Switch, it's overtaken the PS4 version were people waiting to grab Smash first before turning around to buy it straight after?

.... My God the smash sales. Never expected anything to catch up to Splatoon 2 THIS fast...

It is with this data that the Switch closes out last year with a total of ~3.5M units sold in Japan compared to ~3.3M units in 2017 ...

Yeah this year with likely a new hardware version of Switch, likely a price drop on original Switch to coincide with the new hardware, NSMBU, Smash and Let's Go continue pushing sales, a bunch of old FF games, likely DQXI, Animal Crossing, and Pokemon Core I'd be shocked if it doesn't sell more than 4 million.

 

 

 

And oh my god Smash is about to pass Splatoon. That's crazy. I mean it was inevitable but I never thought it'd be this quick!
