Battlefield V in Japan outsold the UK first week. Interesting.

BFV damn, thats good coming from western performances. Switch evergreens with huge boost overall. Switch doing good too. Pokemon hopefully picks up more. Wanted 200k but whateves



Surprised me this week. Was thinking there would be a bigger drop. Switch above 100k, so that is good. Pokemon Let's Go spinoff aiming to go above 1 million before Christmas week. Also would like to point out that Mario Party has shown good legs. Very good for that title.

PS4 picked up a little too, as expected going forward to the holidays.

Also worthy note: Switch has stock issues in Japan right now.

Switch up YoY by only 185



Click HERE and be happy 

This week Switch had a 92k drop from last week and 36k drop from last years' week. However, PS4 saw an increase of 6k compare to last week and a decrease from last years' with 2k. Both consoles mantain their baselines @t 39696 and 17596 respectively.

Seems to be that the shortage last week wasn't a rumour after all. Next week numbers should be up

This week marks the 3rd best week of the year and the third week in a arrow to be in the Top 10. As it may be usual, next weeks should easily take the top 10 spot

Switch drop is much bigger then i Expected, and the hard pokemon drop was expected.



Honestly didn't expect BFV to crack 100k, that's a pleasant surprise. Fallout 76 fell drastically but hopefully it has a good digital performance.
Black Ops 4 continues its legendary run, it will be the best-selling COD game in Japan by far when holidays are over.
