It's nice to see the Switch going above 2018 numbers to close out the year. PS4 holding nicely at 81k.



Signature goes here!

when do the first 2020 week numbers go up?

Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training would be in top 5 of biggest Franchise falls in Gaming History.
Yokai Watch would probably make that 5 as well

That's a good point. I was under the impression the title was digital only. I doubted that Brain Training was going to be making a comeback, and I think Nintendo expected the same, but what if the vast majority are digital purchases because of whatever reasons.

Apparently not before next Wednesday, and presumably week 1 and 2 will be posted as combined figures.



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

Switch hit 1m YoY and only a few thousand from 4.5million! So close! Hopefully it'll beat 4.5 million this year. Pokemon so close to hit 3million by end of year. It's gonna take down Splatoon 2 and Smash in the coming weeks to become the top dog in Japan! But then of course Animal Crossing arrives which should challenge Pokemon. By end of this year Japan should have AC and Pokemon over 4 million, and Mario Kart joining Splatoon and Smash in the 3 millions, with Smash being close to breaking 4 million by then.

I wonder what global Ring Fit sales are for the year. 500k just in Japan, I gotta figure it'll be at 2 million globally. Selling quite amazing!

Graph made by @hiska-kun who we miss here on VGC.

PS2, GBA, 3DS and Switch all launched in March, so this makes for good launch alignment. Switch is in good company and has the momentum to go above the GBA line in 2020 and close the gap to the 3DS by a bit (1m+).

Not on the graph is the DS because it's in a whole nother league.

The most interesting thing about this graph is that Switch started out near the bottom and has steadily grown faster than the other systems.  Also, all of the other systems would have had a price cut by now.  Switch is still growing and hasn't even had a price cut yet.  It should have a very long life.



It's chart time!!

Switch did amazingly this year. Here are some year's end tibdits I found along while I was updating my numbers to match with Famitsu 2018.

- Week 52 is the fourth highest selling one for the NSW and the third highest for the PS4

- The only week PS4 surpassed the NSW was W4 with 148 more units. Don't remember what happened that week (supply constrained maybe???) making this the winning as follows

   NSW: W1-3,5-52 (51 weeks)

   PS4: W4 (1 week)

- The marketshare on 2019 for the NSW was 79% and 21% for the PS4.

- The baseline increased compared to 2018, with NSW up 9,84% (from 35559 to 42339) and down 60,70% for the PS4 (from 17568 to 10993)

- YoY the NSW had an increase over more than 1m units while the PS4 reduced its units to 500k

- W51+W52 for both consoles are up compared to 2018's. From 487467 to 525753 for the NSW (an increase of 107,85%) and from 150861 to 188662 for the PS4 (an increase of 125,05%). Good job PS4. It screams for price cut to maintain those sales in the future weeks.

- Here are the weeks grouped by how much they sold each week compared to 2018 (first week number being 2019):

  <50k: NSW (18 vs 37 weeks), PS4 (48 vs 44 weeks)

  >50k & <100k: NSW (23 vs 7 weeks), PS4 (2 vs 5 weeks)

  >100k & <200k: NSW ( 6 vs 5 weeks), PS4 ( 2 vs 3 weeks)

  >200k & <300k: NSW ( 5 vs 2 weeks), PS4 ( 0 vs 0 weeks)

  >300k: NSW ( 0 vs 1 week), PS4 (0 vs 0 weeks)

Week 4 was the release of Kingdom Hearts 3 and Resident Evil 2 on the PS4.

Switch was very close to sweep the entire year, but being #1 in 52 tracking periods is a lot more challenging than being #1 in only 12 tracking periods; Switch accomplished the sweep in the USA, but in that country the tracking periods are measured in months instead of weeks.

1 million up YOY is a nice result.
Hopefully this year is up once again; Animal Crossing should help a lot with that.
