Nah, a 10% price cut on only PS4 Pro. As I tried to tell you guys, this wasn't going to do much.

People are free to pretend that it was supposed to have a notable impact and then act disappointed when it didn't happen.

Well minus the pretend part. Like honestly I wonder how it would have done without the cut but Call of Duty Boost.

I've got no idea how previous cod titles did in Japan, but bo4 is surprising me.

BO4 is doing much better than previous titles. Last year's WW2 was at 230k after 2 weeks, BO3 was at 187k. And apparently BO4 is bigger digitally as well, so the gap is even bigger if we're talking total sales.

That's true of course.



Why do you guys think COD is doing so well?

Battle Royale. PUBG is quite big in Asia, including Japan. So a much smoother/less buggy and better implemented AAA BR game has a big appeal. And Call of Duty has been a solid seller in Japan for a long time now, a very well established brand.

PUBG for instance was featured/parodied along such other games as Smash, Street Fighter, Dragon Quest, Super Mario, and Biohazard in the anime opening animation for 'Gamers'.

I thought that by this point all Japanese gamers already own a Minecraft copy. Not so much as Minecraft keeps itself on top 10 forever.



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?

Safe to say we probably won't get another Soul Calibur again.

Soul Calibur 5 only did 40k FW in Japan. The series lives and dies based on Western performance. Traditional fighting games are dead in Japan. Every series has floundered.

And snuggle the girls be they short or tall,
Then follow young Mat whenever he calls,
To dance with Jak o' the Shadows."

Fantastic second week for Black Ops 4!

Average opening for Soul Calibur 6, hopefully it will perform better in the west.



I expected switch to be 5k+ in average than that every week since September.
And expected splatoon 2 to never fall behind 10k until mid next year.
Smash and pokemon underperforming in COMG.
Idk, but I won't be surprised if it fall behind last year.



Interesting.
