Restock of Pokemon bundles did the lifting and in amazon it will be on sale this 9th. So numbers should be pretty decent next week

I think everyone in Japan has a PS4 already.

But the switch will outsell the ps4

Must be those new things called robots buying them.  I've heard they are lonely bunch because they have yet to find clitoral stimulation yet.



Quite the drop for PS4 and Kingdom Heart 3. Not looking very good for either of them to sustain sales. But another excellent week for switch and its titles that chart every week.

I think it's better to say that most people that want one, have one. Platstation just isn't as dominant and popular in Japan as it used to be. 

Playstation 2 sold over 23 million units

Playstation 3 sold 10.5 million units

The potential is there but Japan has transformed into Nintendoland throughout the years, nothing to do about it really. 



Think for yourself, question authority

It's technically not Nintendo land.

That PS2 audience transitioned directly into the psp audience.

The current PS4 base has pretty much hit the ceiling, but it has that ceiling because it's a home console in an age when some houses don't even HAVE a TV.

Ok, I can see where the PS2 base was split between PSP & PS3 but where did it go after that?

PSP+PS3 did over 30 million, Vita+PS4 is currently under 14 million.



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

True, Sony probably had higher expectations for the vita  If they want to regain Japan  they'll have to be clever with the ps5 and put forth something that appeals to the portable crowd. Their presence in the rest of the world (especially in Europe) is so strong that I don't see them taking too many risks.

Wrong. 

Japan became a handheld and mobile land, and home consoles are becoming more and more a niche product for societal reasons. It's deeper than Nintendo VS Sony, it's the type of gaming changing. Mobile became bigger than console gaming IIRC, and the Switch might also hit a ceiling after a while.
