This week marks the fourth best selling week for SW and fourth worst selling for the PS4. YtY comparing is down by 20k because the data used for last year is MC, but seeing y the sales table it did almost flat comparing to the same Famitsu numbers.

Week 49 should be interesting.

Yeah okay so this Switch is unstoppable and Pokemon is a clear slam dunk. Anything else argued against it is just a joke.

Let's look at it: $45 pricepoint vs $60 pricepoint, 3DS has crap digital rates, Switch's is much much higher, fan and outsider backlash, smaller installbase. It's a damned success, let's move on.

"Slam Dunk" might be an exaggeration. It's sales are fine, just as the game is fine.

It could have and should have been better. That goes for both the game and the sales.

2 years ago people were saying sales would be through the roof for the first pokemon console game.



Yeah Pokemon did ok.

PS4 already back down in the 8k gutter.

What released on the Switch this week last year? Or was there a pricecut?
Theres no way hardware numbers should be down with a recent switch model release and pokemon



Switch hardware is flat year over year in week 46, but a part of the Pokémon hardware boost has already occured since week 44 when the special edition Lite SKU was launched. Over the period from week 44 to week 46, Switch is up 115k units year over year.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

The same downplay was also there for Pokemon Let's Go... until the 10 million number came out. So, we shall see.
