It sold 200,850, according to Media Create and 180,585 units, according to Famitsu. VGChartz is between the two figures.

This was Fallout and Battlefield week for PS4.

Even though it's not true pokemon, I was expecting more. I guess many Pokemon fans have already bought NSW. NSW adoption was much faster than 3DS back then, so I guess Pokemon now and in the future will not help NSW as much as it helped 3DS.



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

The Switch numbers seem a bit fishy because Japan had the biggest increase despite being the worst region for Pokemon Let's Go.

 

Week ending Nov 10

N. America-93k

Europe-67k

Japan-54k

 

Week ending Nov 17

N. America-234k (up 150%)

Europe-129k (up 92%)

Japan-194k (up 260%)



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Damn...The two Pokemon produced a boost twice higher than Odysee did at the end of October 2017.
Sales of 28th oct 2017 are 310.000.
Then to compare what is coming, it is Xenoblade Chronicle 2 VS Smash Bros Ultimate............



Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
Fastest TI MASTER in Europe : rank Master V in 5min10
Current PB on Power Ranger (Game Gear) : 10min06 (World Record)

LET'S FACE THIS FACT : The Switch is the last physical video game system of the history who has a chance to beat PS2's sales.

So when VGC adjusts, how much more would the Switch adjust up by? 



SMT fans are the worst

I think Japan and N. America will stay the same. Europe and other regions are where I expect adjustments. Enough to get the Switch up over 700k.

Huge bump for Switch, I pity the Xbox though, I think we may see a new one in a year or so. PS4 doing pretty good, but it'll probably fall short of its 2017 holidays by a decent margin, which is probably to be expected after quite a few years on the market.



Switch is selling pretty well considering this is only a Pokemon spin-off game. I've never seen a Pokemon Mystery Dungeon have an effect like this.



First of all congrats to Switch ! PS4 did very good as well, king in Europe, and close to Switch in NA, even considering the big deals for PS4 next week in NA, which was holding PS4 to win even this week in America, in the Pokemon week.
