The joy con bundle was brought back 



Switch sales flat from a new gen pokemon release? How lmaoooo. Seems like word of mouth that the game is actually good might be an aspect, although not sure it had backlash in japan as much as row.

Pokemon having similar drops to X/Y and lower than more recent games is good news. I think it will have pretty good legs again from word of mouth.

I know switch will destroy everything this holiday but each week I'm surprised. Like I saw on Twitter, pokemon is the first big game that really push the 1 console per person idea compare to the 1 per household and I'm sure that this factor going in 2020 with the help of AC and more will make it so the console might peak next year or come really close to this year. Cause like Switch didn't get anything amazing in 2019 until June, so the fact it has a bigger momentum starting 2020 and a huge system seller in march will be game changer imo.

At this rate, the Switch version alone can do it by then end of the generation



Friday launch (3 days)
Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon -80%
Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire -79%
Sun/Moon -78%
Let's Go, Pikachu/Eevee! -76%
Sword/Shield -72%

Saturday launch (2 days)
Platinum -75%
Black 2/White 2 -74%
X/Y -72%
Black/White -71%
Heart Gold/Soul Silver -65%

Great drop for Sword/Shield.

With digital, S/S probably sold another ~500k this past week bringing its total 2.50 million.

Wondering too. 

Imagine if it was playable also in handheld mode...

Mario party 10 should be remastered or a 3ds Mario party trilogy! 



I just noticed that the sales of Nintendo switch alone are close to last year's same week sales. Wow



Switch basically sold the same this week as last week. How is that even possible? It's got to take more than a mass spontaneous desire for Mario Party to explain that.



Sword/Shield has already outsold Let's Go's lifetime sales in Japan. (1.74m to 1.66m)

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Updated the OP with the charts. Switch flat WoW.

Week 47 marks the fifth best week of the year for the SW and the worst week for the PS4. In order to be in the top for the SW has to sell over 180k and the PS4 more than 34k.

Pokemon crazyness far from over and RFA with stock problems hanging on. OG still selling more than Lite. Japanese love the best version of the SW

I know holiday sales are far more muted in Japan than in Europe or especially the US, but having the lowest weekly sales during that period just feels so wrong to me. It tells me that the demand for the PS4 is breaking away, so next year sales will probably be pretty low.

IIRC the PS4 actually had a decent deal in Japan last year, this year there seems to be no such thing. Last year should have been a permanent price drop.
