Pocky Lover Boy! 

Told y'all expecting 60-70k with no huge release was crazy.
50k in summer is really good.



Around the Network

Here is the week 28 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 17,596 -22,096 1,025,293 40,612 (+920)
Switch 50,239 -59,305 1,311,616 112,016 (+2472)

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.

Moderate boost for Switch this week after strong first week sales (even with shortages) of Octopath Traveler as well as the port for Captain Toad. PS4 dropped another couple hundred units with only Mary Skelter releasing. Both consoles are selling around the same percentage of their AWN so they both continue onward but the short term prospects look particularly grim for PS4 with no big games on the horizon.





Nice, Octopath over 100k as expected, I wonder if it'll have legs

They had shortages during the week-end since retailers/SE didn't have faith in the game success. 

So we shouldn't expect subsequent weeks to have strong physical sales. Which means that we should look at the digital sales front since it's probably going to be higher than other releases cuz of the shortages.



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

Nice opening for Octopath Traveler, the drop next week might be really harsh due to shortages, hopefully they can restock it soon!

I'm gonna say it now, Breath of the Wild will become the best selling Zelda game in Japan. The legs on that game are unbelievable!

Yes, it is at 6 with 14k
