PS4 sales in Japan, are like PS3's. Like a turtle, slow and boring but steady and consistent, and at the end of the day it will surpass 10M in Japan. I expect selling more than PS3 too, not by much though.

I'm expecting Wii levels, around 12-13 millions. That's good for a traditional home console.

Switch is just dominating that Software chart! And Smash is about to dethrone Splatoon!!!!
SMP is almost 1mil retail as well!!!

Yes!!! You're right!!!



Switch is going to destroy everything this year if Pokemon mainline game doesn't look like an ass like Pokemon Let's Go.

10-11m LTD in 2019 and closer to 20m at the final LTD

10-11m end of 2019 isnt very ambitious, all that requires is 2017/2018 level sales.

2017, 3.3m

2018, 3.5m/6.8m

2019, 3.2-4.2m/10-11m

I'm not saying that's wrong but "destroy everything" to me sounds like sales will explode, not slight decline-moderate increase.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

9 mil in 2019 is impossible for PS4 man. The switch will hit it though so take solace in that

Why not? It needs to sell 1,381,566 in 2019.

It did 1.7-1.8 million in 2016, 2017 & 2018.

Judging by how dramatically sales of 3ds, Vita, etc fell in the region, I don't think it will reach it. We shall see though. But this year required Monhun and dramatic sales and piece drops to get the PS4 there. The PS4 is running out of ammo in Japan.



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

I'm gonna say 13 mil minimum with the possibility of 14 mil. Next year Vita goes away, 3ds falls further and PS4 is out of things to pull sales from, so NS will have the Japanese theatre all to itself. Combine that with Pokémon and animal crossing and I think it may very well do 5mil or even 6mil+

Where's the topic comparing 2018 and 2017 sales in Japan? Will someone create one for 2018x2019?



Prediction: Nintendo Switch sells 30 million until the end of 2018

Ya that's not happening, that would be 6.2-7.2 million

Switch is going to be closer to 2017 and 2018 than exploding to DS levels. I expect 3'5-4'0M again this year. Software though, it will go trough the roof for Switch exclusives.
