Battlefield 5 did way better than I expected and Black Ops 4 legs are still very strong. Seems like Japan really enjoys Shooters. lol

Sorry, but didn't you have it you biggest "disappointment" this year list. Smash and Pokemon.

people were claiming insane numbers for both games, but japan is where i expected pokemon to sell software and hardware the most. 

Smash I agree people were claiming insane numbers (namely tbone), but can I get Pokemon insane numbers prediction please. I want to see how many people were disillusioned.



 

Bigger drop for Switch than i expected, but at least still domination

FPS market in Japan is much like the market for niche JRPGs in the west (like persona). 

And in a similar vein Splatoon is FF.

All year people were talking about about pokemon being the next coming, i'm not looking for nothing in this forum, it's a mess, just check resetera, and the npd guy prediction. i'm talking especially when it was announced.

I don't know what you are talking about, Let's Go has been hated on by the Pokemon community at large, so many thought it would downright flop.

Think you are confusing new Pokemon Game (What people thought might come this year, but is coming next year) with "let's go". So please show me many people disillusioned.  I personally think you make claims, that contradict your own statements, get called out on it, and make even bigger outlandish statements.

many people hated on it of course but most sales people thought it would do gang busters, and drive hardware sales to insanity. something about it will attract mobile users which is like 900 million.

Clearly there is a contradiction between what he is saying now and what he wrote in the biggest Q4 disappointment thread. So just going to move on. 



 

Battlefield giving the PS4 a boost almost as big as the CoD one.

Switch staying over 100k. Pokemon has its 75% drop just like Sun&Moon and USUM.
Fallout dropped over 80% and will die off quickly.

Switch evergreens are up. One more week without Smash.
