The entire deficit of the past two months has been offset by the two most recent weeks. Switch is now up 348k units YTD, the highest this value has been this year.

While the upcoming comparisons are all manageable with the recent rebound in sales, today's announcement of the Switch Lite should be expected to make a good percentage of prospective Switch owners hold out until September 20th. But even if weekly sales should fall behind last year's again, the imminent launch of the Lite will make up for it with ease anyway.

At this point 4m+ in 2019 is a safe bet.

Hmmm, I think that quite a lot of Japanese people that will be buying NS lite, wouldn't acquire an OG NS otherwise...



Around the Network

Switch nearly 7:1 over PS4.

Also nice to see a third party title like AOT sell better on Switch than PS4.

I think they may have announced the Lite much too early though, as Japan sales will likely now crater for the next almost 2 and a half months. They should've announced it like a month out.



That's the concern I have as well. Although I don't think it'll mean much in the grand scheme of things, because once the Switch Lite comes out on Sept. 20th (Same day as Link's Awakening), Dragon Quest XI S will come out one week later, and then it's full steam ahead towards the holiday season with Luigi's Mansion 3 and Pokemon Sword/Shield after that. So whatever sales they lose in the upcoming 11-12 weeks from people who are now gonna wait, should be more than made up afterwards.

Probably true, it's just after many months of lukewarm sales I was looking forward to seeing Switch smash the charts for months on end, and now it seems the wait has been extended by two months haha

Had a busy week and couldn't be able to post. So, it's chart time:

- Switch managed to sell 16297 more units than last week's 59184, summing up to 74841, an improve of +26,4% week over week

- Switch also sold 31244 units more this week of the year than last year's 44237, an improve of +70,62% year over year

- PS4 continues to gain negative numbers comparing week to week numbers, with -7470 units, a -39,8% week over week

Over the year, the PS4 struggles to mantain its numbers lowing to - 6531 units, a -36.6% year over year

This week 27 marks the 3rd best-selling week for the Switch thus far in 2019.

- This week 27 marks the 5th lowest-selling week for the PS4 thus far in 2019.

- The baseline for the Switch so far is 40338, a +4.09% improve over last year in the same week.

- The baseline for the PS4 in 2019 so far is 13854, a -28.73% over last year in the same week.

- This week's sale Switch represents a 87% while PS4 a 13% of marketshare.

It's so weird that the recent weekly Japanese charts discussions have been sorta...underwhelming, ever since Media Create no longer shared their sales data publicly. Guess it doesn't help that the Switch is the only console holding its end of the bargain in sales this year as the generation comes closer to a close.

Does anyone have a FF14 comparison? I think Shadowbringers sold better than Stormblood, but I'm going off of a finicky memory.

I forgot about this thread until now.

But no,

Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood – PS4 — 28,731 / New

Final Fantasy XIV: The Complete Edition – PS4 — 4,030 / New

It is like 5k down.

Cheers for the figures; great post. Dat Pacman. Waka waka waka.

I'm still unclear as to why Switch sales rose this week when the week before was Mario Maker 2's release.
