2.03 million they forgot the period



So do you think smash could reach 5M in Japan LT? Its still soon but those are good numbers



Epic for ps4. Increased week on week. Hopefully week 1 sales are good too. Judge eyes epic and pro evo the top selling football game breaking into the top 20.

And with that 2018 is over. MHW with digital should be the top seller. I never thought the ps4 could pull that off.

My hopes for 2019, the ps4 to pass 9m and basically guarantee the 10m mark.



MAU...ST impressive Sony!

We dont know smash digital yet. There are some factors in play. MHW most likely won due to high digital but smash has alot going for it being high digital sales too. We will get ship+digital soon and we will know which sold higher

 

*Smash Bundle (digital code)

*Pre-Download was extremly high

*Stay on Eshop number 1 seller all month

Bonus

*Smash like AC is great having as a Digital copy (imo)

 

Smash has a good size gap over MHW in Retail (300k+) so its not set in stone who won



Around the Network

With this, Ultimate is 10 thousand off from the best selling Smash Bros. in Japan ever in just it's first month, as Brawl sold (according to VG Chartz) 2.67 million. Super Mario Party is only the 8th best Selling Mario Party Title in Japan, but should be top 3-5 by the time the sales rush for the game dies out.
Nintendo Switch is Closing in on the PS4, as of December 2nd (the one listed on VG Chartz), it is about 1.4 million behind, but 4 weeks later, looking at the charts week by week, The Switch has cut the lead the PS4 had in half, to about 700 thousand. I predict that the Switch will Outsell the PS4 in Japan by the June 2019 Fiscal Report.

They based their digital estimate off the numbers Capcom gave at launch which showed digital was massive. Either that or they had a really good prediction because it matched. Don't even try to downplay the humongous MHW digital sales in Japan. They were huge and not something we've seen since.

He aint lying, famistu digital is laughable and are based on polls. That said your correct, digital is huge with MHW. Probably around 850k-950k and thats no laughing matter.

 

We kno MHW is 3mil ship+digital. Probably close to 3.1mil, maybe even 3.2mil



With all these books being sold, you'd think there'd be more Barnes and Nobles
