Japan sales week 12, March 18-24, 2019 (media create) - final week... not yet

Forums - Sales Discussion - Japan sales week 12, March 18-24, 2019 (media create) - final week... not yet

Smash Ultimate is doing amazingly well. I normally thought of this series as being front loaded. Right now it is the Switch's top selling evergreen title both overall sales and in weekly sales (in Japan). Smash is definitely doing better than I ever thought it would.  Zelda is also doing surprisingly well. It is above Splatoon 2 for another week. It is only low in the charts, because so many titles were released this week.

Hopefully we'll continue to get data every week, even if Media Create won't be the one providing it. I'm going to stay optimistic.

Why does it have to end when ps4 is starting to gain momentum and slowly catching up to switchs baseline of 50k. Looks like switch wont be passing ps4 total in japan any time soon if ps4 baseline is around 35 to 40k

It will have huge decline shortly as the price cut effect will be done. (I believe this is the last week of the cut).

56k without trying, and Smash winning the race against Splatoon 2 for the 3M mark

No, he can't.

I didnt think so.

It's a figure of speech. If you were around in 2014/15 this number was doubted by almost everybody except me. I took so much shit for saying 8m was the minimum and I'd hopes it would do 10m+.

You have to know why PS4 gain a lot in the last couple weeks. It had Retail Sales + Lots of great selling games. It will go back to below 20k soon. Unless Sony does an official price cut. 



Pocky Lover Boy!

It's quite fitting that the last ever mediacreate has the ps4 hitting the 8m milestone. Remember folks, 90% around here doubted that number. It beats the ps3 to 9m aligned too so can't wait for that. Rip.

Lol could you link me that 90% statistic?

it's trump statistics, make it up on the spot and stick with it ;)

So you can't provide he proof, got it.



Dark Souls 3: 210k
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice: 158k
Bloodborne: 153k

Sekiro did a good job for a new IP, the perfect way to end Media Create with the release of this masterpiece and PS4 reaching the 8M milestone!
Thank you Media Create for making my Wednesday's more enjoyable for years, it was always a pleasure to see the weekly charts!

Wasn't your original projection 10 million?
