The percentages for the changes in sales seem wrong. Smash is noted as down, but had 253K here. DQ Builders 2 is noted as +30%, but was at 80K. Are - and + switched?

3DS-FC: 4511-1768-7903 (Mii-Name: Mnementh), Nintendo-Network-ID: Mnementh, Switch: SW-7706-3819-9381 (Mnementh)

my greatest games: 2017, 2018

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

With week 1 there is a possibilty of smash being higher sell thru than splat2 and MHW

Smash is doing way better than i expected in Japan. Switch software in Japan is a juggernaut.

But the surprise here is the performance of PS4 reaching 117k.....how, why???



PS4 doing 117k is more surpriseing to me than the Switch doing 199k.



Number of days to reach 50M from 40M : 198 days
Number of days to reach 60M from 50M : 187 days
Number of days to reach 70M from 60M : 175 days
Number of days to reach 80M from 70M : 227 days

Temporary price cut, will be interesting to see what happens the following weeks, even with noteworthy titles. At this stage I would just make it permanent price cut.

The previous thread has Famitsu numbers in the first post, this thread has Media Create in the first post. That's why it doesn't add up.

The holiday season in Japan doesn't follow the same pattern as in America and Europe. It extends into January before things begin to settle, hence why Sony's promotion for the PS4 continued throughout the most recent tracking period and didn't end in December.



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

They are correct, you are comparing these numbers to Famitsu week 52, this is media create.
