Forums - Sales Discussion - Japan Sales Week 35 Media Create/Famitsu/Dengeki - August 27- September 02, 2018

Wow no Mario Odyssey in the top 20 while Zelda at #11. Crazy. Switch over 5 million is impressive, I guess it could hit 7 million by end of year.

Damn PS4 dropped soo big! While Switch dominates the software and hardware!

A bit surprising to see BoTW having better legs than Mario !

No bump at all for PS4 even with 2 games in the first places and 3 new releases.
I'm starting to understand why sony estimated only 16 milions for FY2018.

And SMO is out of top 20 while BOTW still holds. Impressive legs!

Yeah saturation is hitting it hard. Expected why buy a PS4 for PES now while you didn't do it for all the other yearly PES releases?

Next week should be pretty calm for Switch, while the PS4 will get Spiderman.

But then the engines are starting to heat up for the holiday season. First very slowly with Toy-Con 3 and Steins;Gate Elite the week after, but then the week after that Dragonball FighterZ, Valkyria Chronicles 1 and 4, The World Ends with You, Labyrinth of Refrain , Warriors Orochi 4 and Fifa 19. And then it's October already and Super Mario Party and Megaman 11 release just after that big week.

Yeah there is saturation in Japan but in Europe and NA there's still room. We saw that with God of War with a significant bump that lasted 4-5 weeks.

I think Spiderman in NA and FIFA 19 in Europe will boost PS4 sales quite a lot in September. And i assume ther will be another COD too.



Calm weeks for Switch.
Ps4 isnt reacting To new releases, i think it will only go down from now.
Switch baseline is good But once they start releasing pokemon/DQ/Yokai/Smash/Animal crossing and a 2D Mario, it Will increase the momentum greatly.



Splatoon at over 50% attach rate.
