Whatever you say bossman. All I was doing is stay true to my expectations, which were mine and mine alone.

So you expected the pS4 to sell 356,625  in 4 weeks and 3 Million for MHW in Japan? If so then show me proof of that? 
Even with my optimism with the game it shattered all my expectation in just 1 week with DD sales.

Ok since you want to continue on about this. I expected the PS4 to have A: a higher baseline (I don't believe the shortages went on that long) and B: MHW to still appear in the charts (cause I don't believe it's only selling digitally now). So in essence, sell longer (A wider mountain so to speak) with the added effect of moving more consoles than usual. That is all.

A game like Mario Tennis is not expected to push hardware, MHW is. Yet, a system without it, still outsold it. Without "big" games you could say. There is your answer.

Mario Tennis is the biggest Nintendo release in almost a year (until Super Mario Party in early October). How is it not expected to push hardware? Did Nintendo give up?

Nintendo had a strategy of releasing a bunch of small-medium tier titles from Jan-Oct this year which seems to have done a good job of keeping steady/consistent sales. 

Jan-Mario+Rabbids: Kingdom Battle

Feb-Bayonetta 1+2

March-Kirby: Star Allies/Hyrule Warriors DX

April-Labo Variety/Labo Robot

May-DKC: Tropical Freeze

June-Sushi Striker/Mario Tennis Aces

July-Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

Sept-Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna

Oct-Super Mario Party

Which seems like goal post changing since the post i quoted said "Switch was supposed to destroy PS4 by this time of the year", it is and has with the exception of a few weeks when a ~3 million selling games released.

@bold, and why would you think that? In 4-5 weeks with a tiny price point MH Generations sold.

[3DS] Monster Hunter Generations # <ACT> (Capcom) {2015.11.28} (¥5.800) - 2.521.859

For the entire next year it sold

[3DS] Monster Hunter Generations # <ACT> (Capcom) {2015.11.28} (¥5.800) - 266.126 / 2.787.985

Mostly of course at the beginning of the year during post holiday boost.

Monster Hunter World on the other hand in 4-5 ish weeks.

[PS4] Monster Hunter: World # <ACT> - (Capcom) {2018.01.26} (¥8.980) 53,982 85,322 1,890,273

And ~700k digital.

Sales since then :

2, 006, 158 at least as of week 16 and >~150k digital

 

TLDR: It is performing pretty normal for a MH game, despite the high price point.

You didn't answer my question. >_> 

So basically after 5 months you expect PS4 to still sell 40K every week and PS4 to sell 40K weekly in summer period?

As for MHW. Farsala. already did a good job at explaining it.

 I am about to post the same thing. I am feeling optimistic with the sales of KH 3 in Japan.
KH collection is also in the charts last week then it went up this week. XD
