So yeah the baseline for Switch is between 45-50k for Switch. Mario Tennis had a nice opening for what it is. I am surprised that New Gundam Breaker sold that much actually, lots of backlash from Japanese gamers who are fans of the franchise. Guess that's what happens when you switch to a new engine/studio. The PS4 is at a base 20k, which was expected.

I always found breaker to not be as good as the lets say versus series, did the new engine really make it that much worse?

That's the word on the street. Haven't played it myself, so I can't confirm.

Ya, and I ain't going to import a title from a franchise I didn't fall in love with either (which is funny because you know I am sucker for Gundam).

Here is the week 25 update in terms of the two big consoles in Japan's path to be able to reach the commonly stated (in these sales threads) estimates for 2018 sales (2 mil for PS4, 4 mil for Switch) .

  TWS GD YTD AWN (Change)
PS4 20,295 -17,177 971,052 38,109 (+637)
Switch 48,944 -54,004 1,166,378 104,948 (+2000)

TWS - This week's sales
GD - Goal differential, the difference between the average week needed from last week compared to this week's sales
YTD - Units sold in 2018 so far including this week's sales
AWN - Average weekly sales needed to reach the estimate for the console.

Switch basically flat with Minecraft and Mario Tennis releasing. PS4 drops 20% due to poor New Gundam Breaker reception and end of the Days of Play sale.

Also I find it completely hilarious over on the era MC thread how they're all hyping FIFA 18 on Switch appearing at the bottom of the list yet completely miss Winning Eleven on PS4 ranking higher. Nintendo fanboys, please if you're going to circlejerk about one football game's success to the World Cup (everyone bought FIFA 18 on Switch) then at least acknowledge the football game that sold better.

Ignoring the silly last part, I am amazed (looking at the table) at how the Switch outsold the PS4 2018 total so far with a game like Monster Hunter World out exclusively on PS4 in Japan. The shortages are long gone, so I expected way more sales. MHW isn't even appearing on the chart anymore (this one at least).
