Still about half of the initial Labo shipment is on the shelves judging by previous Famitsu reports. If it's a big holiday seller it didn't seem like it for Golden Week at least.

Almost 200k for now is good regardless Labo stock.

Not sure if you just lack basic reasoning skills of have the memory of a goldfish, but when the PS4 was supply constrained it was only selling 10-15k units a week. So no, by selling 3x what it was selling when supply constrained it's obviously not current supply constrained.

I was told PS4 just got new stock not a boost from the baseball game last week.

now it got new stock + golden week and it’s selling the exact same.

what is the truth? 

Is there something wrong with your brain? Both weeks it sold ~35k. That's the truth. Do you not know how to read numbers? The demand, after a long duration of being supply constrained rose. It will fall again back to a more reasonable 20-25k. That's how sales work.

Not sure why you think that. There was a major marketing push for Labo. Only selling ~200k units of the ~400k first shipment isn't particularly good. I won't say it's bad either, but it's certainly not good. I'm curious to see how much it sells next week.

But I was told last week PS4 base line is 30 - 35K (with STOCK!!!!!)

why the sudden change? :(

Will the shortage excuse be back when it’s 10K after golden week? Stay tune folks.



Nice numbers all around! BOTW soooo close to 1 milli

I don't think that difference between shipments and sold units need to tell us if sales are good or bad, 200k units is good number until now. Next week numbers will be lower most likly but it seems that Labo will have legs.

Due to the pre order numbers of COMG I expected that the baseball game would easily beat Donkey Kong. Obviously the ape crushed the bat.

Huh? the baseball game is ahead of DK for now as COMG predicted. And weekly COMG predicted the DK win this week, if that's what you meant.

 

1. NSW Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze  109
2. PS4 Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu  54

Where were you told that? The baseline is not 30-35k That's incredibly foolish. The PS4 is 5 years old and is a dedicated home console with an increasingly Western focus. It's not going to have almost the same baseline as the 2nd year of Nintendo's latest portable/home console.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

It released in Feb 2014 so closer to 4 years than 5.

I dont disagree with what youre saying, just pointing that out.
