Anybody who has payed attention to Japanese sales for the last few years knows that it takes awhile for 3rd party sales to transition from 1 platform to the next.

The exact same thing happened with Vita & PS4, for the first year or two PSP & PS3 versions were selling just as much or better.

Big difference though is that PS4 had terrible HW sales and install base, so of course the games on 10m PS3 and 5m Vita sold more than PS4. The Switch on the other hand nearly equals PS4 install base.

Well I doubt the active userbase for PS3 was anywhere close to 10m in 2014/2015 but yes that is something that needs to be taken into account, however I believe my point still stands that multiplatform/cross-gen sales take a while to transition in Japan.

When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.
