Forums - Sales Discussion - Japan sales (Week 49): Media Create/Famitsu/Dengeki - December 04-10, 2017

Not BAD ,70% Nintendo :) One more year and Switch  will surpass PS4 in Japan



Around the Network

Is the MHW bundle just limited for this past week or is it available until the games release? Pretty good for the top two, seems its going to be that way going forward until new hardware is announced.



There it is the Holiday rush for Nintendo. :-O
And Horizon Zero Dawn and Nioh!

Good sales for Yakuza Kiwami 2 within my expectation and EDF 5 is kinda a surprised for me because there is a better version that was announced. 



Those 2 new PS4 games really pushed up the console this week!

And Switch staying above 100k and that 50% market share. And Awesome legs for the Switch games!

 

Odyssey about to hit 1mil Retail in Japan!!! 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Just as a reference, XCX sold about 11500 units in its second week, so XC 2 did almost double of what X did in the second week.Again, I hoped it to sell a bit better, but its doing considerably better than the past entry.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

I think it is a great sign that Monster Hunter boosted PS4 this much. I love Monster Hunter and was a little worried that it not being portable in some way would hurt the franchise. Not looking to be the case.

We know I love Switch so I need not comment on how fucking awesome it is to see sales of my favorite current console that high. Just splendid!

Now those are great Playstation 4 sales and feels a bit better for the Holiday season. Switch goes without saying that those are great numbers.

Could have been more for the Switch it's kinda sad. Imagine the potential because it's still having stock issues.
Yes, I agree both platform did great this week. 

The Switch biggest competition right now!

Xenoblade 2 is almost out of stock. Apparently they only sent about 130k first shipment.

However with the 2nd shipment+digital, I'm not worried about its sales.

Very limited. All the MHW pro according to some user in resetera are for reservations only. 
Hopefully we will see a MHW slim bundle it will very stupid for Sony not to do it.  



Is this the only wave of MH bundles for the PS4?
