Japan  studio's  ia not making  gt sport..

They made

( helped) with  bloodborne  

Gravity  rush 1 and 2.

The last guardian. 

Isn't Poliphony officially part of Japan Studios. If they aren't their track record is even worse nowadays. The Last Guardian took a decade, Bloodborne was just a little hand. Only the 2 GRs were developed in a reasonable timeframe.

Anyway, we also have other titles like Freedom Wars. But mostly, no AAA.

PS4 looking to almost pass Switch already

If it didn't post this week (new game for PS4 and very low suply for Switch), hardly will pass it any time soon, expect if Nintendo ships less than 20k Switch consoles for next week.

Regardless........a 3 and a half year old system shouldnt be that close to a 3 month old system.......not a good sign imho

Considering the PS3 a 7 and a half year old system, never mind sold close to, but outsold a 3 month old system (PS4) in Japan, I wouldn't worry.

Btw before you mention it the PS4 was 3 months old at the time since it released in Japan late Febuary.



05./04. [3DS] Monster Hunter Double Cross (Capcom) {2017.03.18} (¥5.800) - 12.263 / 1.502.606 (+10%)


Is it too early for switch version anticipation to hurt the legs of the game, or the opposite will happen?
( Because of crossplay, e.t.c...)

Good legs for Zelda, considering it isn't too popular in Japan

Actualy system that's around 3 years on market usually have peak sales in that age. You dont need any signs, just take clear fact, and that's that Switch is selling much better than Vita, Wii U and PS4 in same time frame, plus fact that demand is much bigger than Nintendo can currently ship.

Tekken flop.

Is Switch still supply constrained or has demand gone low?

Still supply constrained.

North America is probably getting a bit more supply than before. A bigger amount of consoles will be made available during weeks with big releases, so there's some stockpiling going on.

Going off their 45-50k shipments before MK8D release they are stockpiling around 20k/week right now. If ARMS releases with a similar bump as Splatoon testfire and MK8D then they should ship around 80k that week.

Then they will probably drop back down to the 20k+ baseline. That means they will have around 120k stock when ARMS releases, so that leaves ~40k towads Splatoons launch. With another 4 low weeks that means around 160k-170k shipment for Splatoon 2s launch. Maybe 150k on launch and ~70k second week? After that it should hopefully go back up to the 40k+ baseline. I wonder when bumped up production will finally show.



Switch stays above 20k again! Hopefully it will be the same for next week.
