The percentages for the changes in sales seem wrong. Smash is noted as down, but had 253K here. DQ Builders 2 is noted as +30%, but was at 80K. Are - and + switched?
The previous thread has Famitsu numbers in the first post, this thread has Media Create in the first post. That's why it doesn't add up.
Smash is doing way better than i expected in Japan. Switch software in Japan is a juggernaut.
But the surprise here is the performance of PS4 reaching 117k.....how, why???
The holiday season in Japan doesn't follow the same pattern as in America and Europe. It extends into January before things begin to settle, hence why Sony's promotion for the PS4 continued throughout the most recent tracking period and didn't end in December.
