Hardware This Week Year to Date Life to Date
Switch 30.072 1.862.849 8.752.395
PS4 9.746 750.308 8.302.398
3DS 2.227 156.218 24.461.182
PSV 67 37.048 5.862.402
XB1 44 4.333 107.264

Key notes:

- Post-Obon holidays means hardware drops across the board. The 3DS drops over 50%, the PS4 just under 50%, Switch about 35%.

- The new Switch hybrid SKU launches in week 35, so next week. Switch Lite launches in week 38.

- Oninaki releases to modest sales, about evenly split between the PS4 and Switch. Square-Enix's Tokyo RPG Factory put out another bland game.

- The VGC forum is certainly in a critical state when one of the few regular sales threads with actual numbers sees no urgency to get made.



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

Oh no, generic niche RPG sold more on PS4 than Switch. Switch third parties doomed????? /s



Fire Emblem falling fast on the charts. I wonder if it will get a big spike when the Switch Lite comes out, considering the franchise was only on 3DS last generation?

Probably. I think FE could have sold another 50k consoles had the Lite not been announced. Thus it follows that while some of those people might have caved and bought it and a Switch, there will still probably be a decent bump. 

Also for an RPG I'm not really sure this would qualify as falling fast. In relation to non RPGs maybe, but even then most non Switch  games fall faster

This is the week after Obon, so everything dropped. Fire Emblem's drop is in line with the rest of the top 10.

The launch of Switch Lite should easily be above 100k for the Lite alone in that week, so Switch software should naturally see increases across the board. Depends on what you consider a big spike, but Fire Emblem should see at least some boost; most of the benefits will go to the usual evergreens.

When I say "falling" and "spiking" I am referring to chart position.  The raw numbers put this FE at 221k so far.  Fates sold about 100k more during it's first week alone in Japan.  At first glance it seems like Fire Emblem has lost some of its base in Japan.  I am wondering if they are actually just waiting for the Lite edition in order to get Fire Emblem.



Next week will be pretty interesting. I hope.



Next week should be good. Predicting 55k

Yeah, Astral Chain is a real system seller! An IP that big can definitely off-set the Lite hype.

I meant more so that the new model is coming next week. I’m not sure if the boost will be in the first or second week though
