Nice numbers for Switch and PS4.
I wonder if FF7 week will compare to holidays + sale? Probably not, but will be an interesting week.

I don't believe FF7R will do much for hardware sales. There are just so many factors against that.

PS4 is nearing the end of it's lifecycle
It already got JRPGs
Even got a mainline Final Fantasy
Had a huge sale the past few weeks while the release date of FF7R Part 1 is known for quite some time.
No FF7 special hardware edition of the PS4.

So a lot of the people who are interested in buying a PS4 for FF7 already have one.

Substantial gains overall year-on-year !

Now we gotta keep an eye on it's debut for the next month cuz it might be telling for what we're going for this year. So far we getting AC has the big release of Spring but in difference to last year we don't have smaller titles springled through it which could affect the baseline early on .... Unless Pokémon keeps the baseline afloat like SSBU did last year.

Why would FF7 "remake" part 1 do that? It's not like it's releasing early in the system's life.

Yeah, if I was planning on getting a PS4 this late for FF7, I would have done so this holiday with the ongoing sale. Especially since there's no special edition model, or even bundle announced.
If those people wait until March then that may be poor planning.

Yeah, they could be making so much more out of the Switch than they are.

Heh, Switch has the top 19 spots.  Just one game at #20 prevents a clean sweep of the top 20.  

You know sometimes when the hardware sales go down, software sales can continue.  We can even get situations like Just Dance 2020 selling on the Wii even though it's been discontinued for years.  But right now...the Japanese just aren't playing the PS4.  Almost the whole country has moved on.  At this point they are just looking for what else is going to be released on Switch.
