Week 12, 2017, Monster Hunter XX came out for the 3DS, it sold 1+ million copies.  3DS hardware fell from 42k the previous week to 39k that week.  Monster Hunter and the 3DS are more popular than the PS4 and TLOU.  I don't understand these "this game didn't more hardware" for consoles past 72 months...its a hard needle to move for a console of that age, no matter the game.

Well in this case, we have a very recent example of a game that did move hardware for the PS4: Final Fantasy VII:Remake. PS4 increased by almost 60k units the week FFVII:R released so I think that OTBWY's comment is accurate when he says TLOU2 didn't do much for PS4 hardware sales in Japan.

Was it ever a question if this game will actually move hardware in Japan? Color me surprised. FF7R was always intended to be a system seller in Japan, TLoU2 had no chance there, and the minuscule boost proves this. Still decent opening for the game.
