At least God of War made an appearance in Japan. We'll see about legs.



Is it Week 15 or Week 16?

I'll go with 16 for now since I used 15 last week.

Here is the week 16 update in terms of the two big consoles in Japan's path to be able to reach the commonly stated (in these sales threads) estimates for 2018 sales (2 mil for PS4, 4 mil for Switch) .

  TWS GD YTD AWN (Change)
PS4 13,447 -20,466 758,664 34,481 (+568)
Switch 34,165 -53,389 794,651 89,037 (+1483)

TWS - This week's sales
GD - Goal differential, the difference between the average week needed from last week compared to this week's sales
YTD - Units sold in 2018 so far including this week's sales
AWN - Average weekly sales needed to reach the estimate for the console.

Well, not much changed this week after all. Labo kept the Switch within a few thousand units of last week. The most curious thing I see is that the PS4 pro more than doubled the amount of PS4 sold. Will that trend continue?

Pretty good start for Labo variety. But dang those Switch sales. I thought they'd go at least over 40,000 with the Labo launch. And that's still over 50% of the total hardware sales? Dang. Also surprised the Robot kit did that poorly. I that that would be more popular in Japan.



Good debut by series standards for god of war. Probably around 60k with digital.

Ps4 slim only sold 4k this week. There is no doubt it's severely supply strained. I reckon Sony have a big price drop coming for e3 and/or a new model coming too. They had probably only allocated a certain number of slim shipments to Japan but the monster Hunter effect was much bigger then expected so they sold out too fast.

Is switch still supply strained? Or is demand just falling? 



PS4 revovered a bit but still second worst week this year. (Same for XBOX ONE btw)
New yearly lows for Switch , 3DS and Vita

GoW did not much as expected. Needs to be set in Japan to be sucessful. :D
Labo did nothing for Switch Hardware which is suprising me but 90k is not too bad all things considered

Lets see how its legs will be. I expect a strong christmas period.
