Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu : Ps4 is up YOY in Japan

The latest report is in and ps4 sold 1.93m for the year beating out last year's 1.79m. This is the highest a playstation home console has sold in a long time. Since the ps2 days. Sony and traditional home consoles still have a place in the market.

 

With monster Hunter coming in January 2018 is likely to get off to a strong start.

Good to hear.

I havent really kept up on what big games its getting in Japan next year but MHW will definitely give it a strong start.

It's basically getting 95% of third party titles. 



What does Media Create say though?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

GOW, Ghost of Tsushima, red dead redemption 2 and spiderman, but japan seems to only care about nintendo games, and a few big japanese franchises. last of us part 2 could be big if it makes it.



Is good, uh!

So 10m+ Lt or can it hit 15m if price and games are just right in the future ?

Should be up year over year as well, but Media Create's numbers for 2017 will add up to only ~1.80m as opposed to Famitsu's 1.93m.

3DS and Switch have similar discrepancies (~100k) between the two trackers for yearly numbers in 2017.



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

it's afaik currently tracking slightly above the PS3 that did 10.5m lt and MHW should give it another good stimulus, but with the Switch very likely dominating the market from here on out even reaching 10m+ will be a tough/long battle depending on how many JPN 3rd parties go straight to NSW (and even PS4/NSW games could harm PS4 sales)

for 15m the PS4 would need an epic killer app that amplifies hw sales for months to come and with MH there is a small chance for that to happen there .. other than MHW there isn't much on the horizon that could do this especially as pretty much all traditional medium to big jpn 3rd party franchises already had their chance (still FF7R maybe?, total mega dark horse being Gran Blue?)
