26 months vs. 62 months. A weird half.

EDIT: I see you edited the title, but you should also edit your OP. Currently it implies that the PS4 was the previous market leader, but that isn't true at all.

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

Really? Thought it came close at least.



Some days I just blow up.

This is so sad...

Alexa play despacito!.



Very impressive sales in the home region. I'm wondering what its lifetime sales over there will be.

And this before any price cuts, any revisions, before core Pokemon, Animal Crossing, Dragon Quest...

Lifetime it should more than double PS4's JP sales.



Wow, people just hate Sony over there.

Edited. I really shouldn't post threads before my morning coffee, I am a zombie before I partake of the bean.

At a lot of the places where this has been posted the excuse of "of course it did, it's a portable" has been bandied about a lot, but I feel this is an oversimplification. After all, Vita being portable didn't stop the PS4 outselling it in Japan.



I'm late to the party but congrats

The Switch dominance in Japan is truly something else, coming for 20+ million units sold lifetime.

Not really.  Japan is portable crazy.
