NS is gearing up towards the holidays by 6k+ while PS4 being down by 3k+. The baseline of the Switch goes up to 39856 (this week sales are above it) while PS4 baseline goes down to 17642 (this week sales are under it)

Thanks for the informative graph.

Why is Switch up so strongly. One new game on #10 can't be the answer. Had this week some of the bundles?

That's strange, some people said it would be the end of Sony in Japan because of their policy against awful pedophile's games.
It seems that it's not the case.

Well, Sony does what Nintendo did in the past. Was it the end of Nintendo? You have your answer, shitty practices don't spell the end on a company.

One more week before we start seeing very serious numbers for Switch.

Its very possible that Pokemon launch next week started effecting, I mean even Pokemon for 3DS is on 12. position.

It could be just a random peak, or it is the begining of the Chrismas boost. Europe and US chartz of the same week could confirm that.

65400 unit sold just 1 years ago, we were just on the first week of Mario Odysee, 43000 today with nothing except Mario Party a month ago, but Pokemon and Smash coming, it is a very promising number for this week...I still don't see the 11,5M it needs to sell for the period Oct 1st - Dec 31th.
Oct was more or less a fail in regard to the Q3 high objective.

Geez, BLOP4 is holding strong. I wonder if the Battle Royale mode is helping drive sales?

Thanks for making the thread.  Had this holding in my clipboard for awhile now.

Here is the week 44 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 % Goal AWN (Change)
PS4 17,540 -57,400 1,343,074 67.2% (+0.9) 82,115 (+7175)
Switch 43,747 -179,530 2,034,253 50.1% (+1.3) 245,718 (+22,441)

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.

Solid weekly gain for Switch and a sizeable drop for PS4. Yet despite that the AWN is still increasing at a 3:1 rate for the Switch over the PS4. Switch will need to average just under 250,000 sold for every week to hit its goal. I believe last year it only hit that number in one or two weeks, so it's very much an uphill battle. PS4 has no chance to make its goal as Sony decided not to price-cut the slim but it may come out with being percentage-wise closer to the goal depending on just how massive the holidays are for the Switch. Still a good race with the holidays tantalizingly close.

Edit: terrible formatting, will try to fix

I'm not sure what you mean. Was the table formatting messed up on your screen/device? I just used the simple HTML editor so it shouldn't be anything fancy.

No, I tried to post something and the formatting was all messed up.
