I dont know how strong the demand is to be recovered. Like how many 100k weeks will it take lmao.

Demand must be so high seeing AC NH is close to become the best selling game of all time in japan in a matter of months. With digital it is definitely passed 6 millions I'm sure.

Good performance of GoT and PM. PS4 hardware is truly dying, and PS3 will end up on top. Even if the PS4 was huge WW and had no competition, it will still remain lower than the PS3 in japan. That's kinda scary for Sony imo.

Switch could impact PS5 sales in japan, I personally think it def will.

With digital it is, maybe, passed 7 million.

hmm will 3DS outsell the PS4 next week?🤔



    R.I.P Mr Iwata :'(


Such a shamw sony never lowered the price in like 5 years , could have easily reached ps3 numbers.
Ww it could have almost reached ps2 level is the system whas 250/200.

Great switch sales,NOO beastly sales.

The PS4's numbers , imagine if it drops below the 3DS. At least Tsushima is doing well.

I think it's safe to say the PS4 won't reach 10 million LT.

Switch's power knows no bounds. Origami King had a good hold.

What the heck happened to the PS4?

Fell off a cliff

PS4 is clearly done, it's gonna limp along from now like Xbox did from the beginning. The Switch is an unstoppable beast. 98% domination, Pacmans mouth has closed.




I expected Switch down WoW and Animal Crossing to be flat.  I was so wrong.  WTF Animal Crossing!?!  Games are not supposed to sell like this.  Who knows what it's numbers look like when digital is added in?  RFA is actually down WoW, but I'm betting there are shortages of physical games there.  Most other Switch games in the top 10 are up WoW.  Paper Mario has a decent hold.  

PS4 sales are over.  The Japanese are treating Switch as the successor to the PS4.

Ninjala...I think is a free to play game, so not sure why there are physical copies being sold.

Hmm Gamedatalibrary has New Leaf at 5.067 million units at retail. Numbers not matching up at all with GDL to be honest.

Gamedatalibary doesn't include digital sales, I'm guessing GDL took this figure from Nintendo's official numbers which include digital.

Due to shortages Animal Crossing New Leaf actually did extremely well digitally for a 3DS game during its launch.  

At beginning of June AC NH Had sales of 4,7 millions in retail. If that chart from June 4th is to believe, AC NH was at 1,1 million in digital sales. That’s 20% of the total sales.

If you add 20% today, AC NH should be at 6,3 millions in total sales. 

Should reach Pokémon green/red by the end of the year and break the record.

Sony better be readying a PS5 Portable if they want the have any sway in Japan going forward. Dedicated Home Consoles are just not clicking with the Japanese consumers.

A Handheld, built on the PS5 architecture, with reductions to target 1080p would already be possible, but not ideal. Going to 5nm will give them the energy savings they need to make such a machine viable.

I’ll never stop holding out hope for a proper 3G Vita successor. I still believe a PS Phone in the proper Handheld Form Factor, with a unified OS and Library could set new records for PS hardware in Japan, and become a very successful expand of the PlayStation brand.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

2020 surpasses 3m YTD in week 30, a bar that 2019 didn't clear until week 46. If 2020 is flat from here on out, it will finish with sales of ~5.85m; that's more than half of what the PS4 sold lifetime in a single year.

As for current PS4 sales, that looks more like Sony not caring one bit about the supply chain than anything else. If there were no supply constraints, then the PS4 could sell 6-10k units per week, but such a baseline doesn't add up to anything significant over the course of a few months (~50k extra units), so that's why it likely wasn't worth an effort on Sony's part.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
