Honestly it truly was. Basically the opposite of Japan right now. 

I wonder why hardware sales in Japan are low right now.

Mix of pre golden week declines and PS4 supply chain issues. Also the impending death/decline to irrelevancy of 3DS/Vita.

Japan is a smaller market and momentum seems to shift towards mobiles more and more

Because they are too busy working.

Well, PS4 may win from time to time... but I'm impressed all 3 were close 1,15 -1 - 0,97 and X1 up YOY is great news.

It nearly almost always wins.  You sound like fox news lol. (PS4 wins the majority of previous months... fox news: 'PS4 may win from time to time' lol)



Good for Switch! I thought it would come 3rd

That was really close to my prediction. Any word on the software list besides the top 3?

We have to keep in check of being to preposterous because we can see what happened to "Switch will always win"...

And of course we can keep verifying that PS4 wasn't really affected by Switch, still we may see a price cut this year to keep it from slowing sales.

Honestly, I disagree with the price cut.  Okay so yes eventually, but not until October.  First now, PS4 will float with GOW and Spiderman.  Speaking of which, one wonders if Sea of Theives gave Xbox a boost.  Sony may be able to hold out until Smash comes out.  And if it comes out holiday, yes they lower the price and ride that wave.
