Forums - Sales Discussion - Japan Sales Week 41 Media Create/Famitsu/Dengeki - October 8-14, 2018

On one hand, I am happy to see a boost for PS4. On the other hand, it had CoD and a price cut to barely sell over 50% of Switch sales. I really, really thought PS4 would do better against Switch in Japan.

You really, really thought a home console would do better against a Nintendo handheld in Japan?

Boy, did you think wrong.

Edit, you are right. In Japan I should have expected this.

I never said anything close to thinking it would win. But I thought it would do better. This is slaughter. Ps4 did outsell 3DS so it is not impossible for a Sony home console to outsell a Nintendo handheld.

No, it didn't. And it wasn't even remotely close either.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I meant worldwide, not in Japan.

But I edited my original post anyway. I was wrong to think PS4 would put up a better fight.

Is the Switch slaughtering the PS4 worldwide?

Quite the opposite in fact going by npd results. Ps4 slaying. And eu would be even more dominant. Asia excluding Japan is Sony land too so its safe to assume no console is slaughtering the ps4 WW.
