Ps4 35k and switch 40k. Not too good

I wonder where PS4 will bottom out at.

My guess is 20-22k. But things could change.



It seems that the MHW bump is over, but it has been an excellent run if Im going to be honest.And even with MHW sales being considerably down, I dont think they will outright stop selling and will have some decent legs.

And as usual, Switch sells its 40k units.Really hope that Nintendo fixes things up, but at this point, I think that they are simply holding out for Kirby.Outside of that, Switch softwares are selling as expected.I just wished that Xenoblade showed up again but I think that its not far off the top 20, with a respectable 2 or 3k every month(given that it was sold out not very long ago, selling really well on Japan and the Switch being a hot item)



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

Ps4 will be 25-30k until a big release. Switch 40k is really bad. At this rate it won't outsell the ps4 until year 2020 and that's when ps5 arrives

Sales are not that bad but looking back at neogaf data for the Wii, DS and PSP for the same week 2008.  Kinda have to ponder.

There are still stock discrepancies with PS4 and Switch based on what I have seen over the week on the online stores of Yodobashi Camera, Bic Camera, and Amazon JP. Though I think Switch stock is generally stabilizing (it has been consistently available on Bic and Amazon's online stores but it sells out quickly on Yodobashi) and around 40K may be the baseline that we are looking at without major new releases at the current price. As for PS4, it has little stock at Bic and Amazon JP but has been consistently in stock at Yodobashi's online store.

As for software, Switch games and MH World appear to have impressive legs. Metal Gear Survive, while it certainly did not have a good opening, did better than I expected. I am still disappointed by Bayonetta 2's opening in Japan last week, on a personal level it has been one of the best portable experiences I have had, so I was hoping it would do better in a region like Japan.

40k baseline with no major releases isnt amazing but its not really bad either and Switch will pass PS4 by Spring 2019.
