Due to E3? Because there's no other real reason for rising sales this year.

Last year had Fortnite, Paladins and Sushi Striker to push the sales. I don't think Cadence of Hyrule can be enough to push up to 220k

I don't believe that any of these 3 games are HW sale pusher. Or maybe a 5-6000 boost all together but it falls under the tolerance gap of the VGC estimation. I only believe that 3+ millions sellers (SMM2, FE, AS, LM3, Link's Awekening, the 2 Pokemon) can have a visible boost effect.

Then why do you exclude Fortnite? It got downloaded 2M times in it's first week on the Switch.

What's more, it's on half of all Switch systems - that's a higher attach rate than MK8DX has!

Add to that the fact that Fortnite had been hyped up a lot at the time, and I really wonder why you leave it out as a reason for pushing sales.

Maybe because I just don't like the damn game :D

So you are probably right abour Fornite. But also, this E3 in 2019, even if there is no major game released on the precise week, can have a stronger impact than the previous E3.

The E3 2018 let me unsensible, because I am not at all attracted by SSBU and Pokemon, I still don't have a Switch. But this time, I might feel really tempted because there were 3 games very attracting to me (although I changed my mind again because SD3 remake will not be a Switch exclusive).

Even a couple of friends, who kept their distance with the Switch until now, always criticing it, decided to buy one because it was too much for them this time with Animal crossing and Panzer Dragoon. If these 2 people changed their mind like that, I believe that the sales increase can be huge in the world.

Current PB on Power Ranger (Game Gear) : 10min06 (World Record)

Non-geek activity : ThermalHungary

Pretty wild that Switch can go 6 months without a big new game and still be at nearly 200k a week. Of course, it'd be better if it just didn't have such lapses to begin with, but at least the system is appealing enough to keep selling in spite of them.

It's gonna be a monster in the second half of the year.

Any particular reason why every platform increased over the previous week?

Vita still holding out and keeping the Xbox one at last place in Japan!



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Man I can't wait until sales for all 3 pick up again.



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

PSN: StlUzumaki23

Both NS and PS4 up, NS on top again, but by a lead less worrying for Sony. Anyhow, PS4 will probably need a price cut anyway this Autumn, if Sony wants it to reach its full lifetime potential.
