Here is the week 21 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 17,482 -18,040 880,777 36,103 (+581)
Switch 36,590 -58,679 987,951 97,162 (+1893)

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.

Rather lackluster bump for PS4 all things considered. Stays relatively flat compared with last week despite 3 different exclusives launching. The big Sony announcement though is for the discounted "Days of Play" PS4 model which has already shot up to #4 on the Amazon JP rankings. Of course for the Switch with the two new Pokemon games detailed (and one already available) it will be interesting to see just how much the Switch can take off. It had a modest increase this week over last week and will be the first to cross the 1 million sold mark next week.



Switch hardware sales are very good relative to the legs of its longtime sellers, and they are approaching the previous baseline of 40-45k units again.



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

Really pathetic sales from the PS4 this week. thankfully the PS4 is top of the Software charts, at least.



Another dreadful week.



Nice, only a slight decrease for Tropical Freeze and Labo: Variety Kit, and Switch went up again!

Sorry for the thread title.  Updated. There's a slight change in the forum so yeah. 



Even with a few low-key new releases the PS4 stays at 17K. I think we are looking at the baseline.

Dark Souls sold originally 282K first week in Japan according to VGC-numbers. That's a fourth. If that is consistent across regions, we look at 500K worldwide for the PS4. It might be problematic to extrapolate that way though. as Xbox has relevance outside Japan and sells this too.

EDIT: Vita has halfed sales against last year, 3DS even sells only a third. They are both on their way out of the market.
