Both are down from last week.

Switch baseline is stable at 39696 

PS4 baseline is 17834.

Nintendo is reaching its baseline numbers and PS4 went beyond its.



No bump at all for PS4 even with 2 games in the first places and 3 new releases.
I'm starting to understand why sony estimated only 16 milions for FY2018.

And SMO is out of top 20 while BOTW still holds. Impressive legs!



Around the Network

Poor sales for Naruto.... Minecraft is doing really good and Spaltoon 2 legs are impressive!!



So now it's an even bigger Nintendo Pacman. Anyway, 5 million mark has been passed. Switch is killing it. I was hoping for it to be closer to 50k, but 42k is not bad at all.

Software numbers do nothing for me. Minecraft? really?



Come Switch... Ninty release something soon!



Switch!!!

Here is the week 36 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 19,723 -29,068 1,190,270 50,608 (+1817)
Switch 43,513 -94,267 1,701,243 143,672 (+5892)

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.

PS4 AWN reaches 50k. Despite excellent performance by Spider-man it does not seem to be selling consoles. Switch is coasting for now, AWN approaching 150k

There it is.
PS4 2018 YTD is now behind 2017 by currently 6k. While Software is good this week it did nothing for hardware.

Splatoon and Minecraft still good but Software overall still seems low atm.
