The PS4 is completely kicking the Switch's ass in Japan. That's new, what gives?



Those Monster Hunter PS4 numbers are incredible. The Japanese PS4 sales are almost equal to the ones in Europe. Europe!



You know it deserves the GOTY.

There was a time when hardware updates were far behind so I'm not going to complain now that hardware is leading

Also software is only physical sales which aren't even half of the total figures so yeah I'm not too much into that chart anymore.



Great for ps4 and great for NS. I'm not sure if Xbox numbers are bad or they just look bad compared to the other 2

You think digital makes up more than 50% of sales? Dood... come on! Digital usually averages around 35% in the west and 15% in Japan. There are exceptions of course, but in the majority of cases physical definitely does make up more than half of total sales.

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

Expected. Monster Hunter is too big in Japan. I hope to see to Nintendo regain Japan in March.



Switch Friend Code = 5965 - 4586 - 6484

Funny cause I've heard in several occasions that digital has taken over physical, but I don't know the exact figures though.
