Pretty quiet week with numbers back to normal on the hardware side. Octopath has decreased significantly, wonder if it's supply or if it's just declining.



Signature goes here!

A Drop from both consoles this week.

New baseline

SW: 39696

PS4: 18171



Around the Network

Here is the week 34 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 22,838 -22,892 1,153,956 47,002 (+1272)
Switch 46,259 -81,671 1,615,579 132,467 (+4537)

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.

Drop as expected for both systems after Obon. For PS4 its sales are either impressive or underwhelming depending on if these numbers include the 500 million special console or not. Switch is steady but still way behind its AWN. The 4th calendar quarter is always Nintendo's strongest so there's still no reason to think it won't reach its goal (or at least get close)

Hmm, My Heros One Justice launches higher on Switch than on PS4. Bamco will take notice. It already missed Vita, although I'm pretty sure that would have also added at least another 5K (this first week).



3DS-FC: 4511-1768-7903 (Mii-Name: Mnementh), Nintendo-Network-ID: Mnementh, Switch: SW-7706-3819-9381 (Mnementh)

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020

10 years greatest game event!

bets: [1], [2], [3], [4]

Hardware drop expected post Obon. My Hero Academia did better on Switch than PS4 which is a good sign for Japanese 3rd partys for the system.



Expected post Obon sales.
Switch is hitting 5m in 2 weeks.



Oh no! It went below 50k! Hopefully it picks back up next week.
Boku no hero got an okay ratio for Switch from COMG, while the PS4 version was a surprise since it didnt chart at all.
And another Nintendomination in the top 20!



Pocky Lover Boy!
