Almost Switch domination at the top 10!
Massive decline for PS4. As expected.
Switch down as well but not much



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Switch is slowly dropping, drought making it's effect.

Ouch at those PS4 sales, that's getting really low.



Ouch! What happened to the PS4? No more price cuts I'm guessing.

Super Mario Party is heading for that 1 million copies sold soon.



Signature goes here!

Great, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate reached 3 million!

Looks like the price cut effect is done. Switch also now reaching the lull period of the year. This is the only time frame I can realistically see switch dipping a bit.



 

By how much was the PS4 discounted in the weeks before?



Switch crosses 1 million so far this year, up from ~700k in the same timeframe last year.

Also Switch is only 105k away from passing PS4, should happen in the next 4 weeks.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

So, probably the week before goldenweek. Which is now a 10 day holiday period as far as I understand.

I'm thinking it will pass it during Golden Week but maybe you're right. Either way should be right around there.
