Here are the hardware sales for the week, since they haven't posted on the front page yet:

  • PS4 - 208,953
  • NS - 192,964
  • X1 - 101,83
  • 3DS - 52,129
  • PSV - 3,715

Thanks for the hard work you do, its greatly appreciated but i just wanted to point at that it seems as though Switch is overtracked so far this year.

Just going based off the 3 regions Nintendo breaks down sales into, Japan, Americas & Other.

NPD has it at ~860k as of April 7, adding in Canada & Latin America puts that up to ~1 million for the Americas.

Media Create has it at ~725k in Japan putting Japan+Americas at ~1.7 million.

Now comes other, in terms of quarterly shipments other has fallen in between Japan & Americas each quarter (closer to Americas) so based on that something around 850-900k seems likely.

That would put global sales in the ballpark of ~2.6-2.7 million as of April 7 while this site has it at 3.2 million.

Its a pace of 107k a week including europe, impossible?

I'm not new and you were not harsh.

My point is still the same.

PS4 had a 10K lead on RoW last week, this week (8 to 14) PS4 had GoW embargo lift with a massively good reception and hype boost for its biggest exclusive in the year and this affected the system sales with it losing this 10K lead to the Switch everywhere in the world?

Yeah, no.

That's for NA/EU, not for RoW.

If we wait for bundles around here we end up paying a lot more, specially for a Bundle of the Pro.

People just go out and get the Slim as cheap as they can find to play it, and that's the kind of push they need, the game everybody is crazy to play.



Have the Switch been beating the XONE lately in Europe?



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Damn it, Japan. Ruining the PS4's numbers at the wrong time per the usual.

Not sure what you're asking?
