NS - 26

PS4 - 4



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Around the Network

So did Sony quietly discontinued the PS4 in Japan? Because I have no other idea how that number can be so low.



The PS4 is really lacking games that have similar legs as Nintendo. The top 30 is just insane amount of Switch games.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Human Fall Flat must have sold its initial shipment(which was probably around 20K by now), wonder how long the indie game can remain in the charts. 



Kai_Mao said:
Never thought I’d see the day that the PS4 would be outsold by the 3DS in 2020.

Will the PS4 reach 10 million LTD in Japan at this point? Even with all the remaining big games releasing at this point, the sales just seemed to decline. Lack of stock doesn’t help.

I said in February that it would never hit 10m, now I am unsure about 9.5m...

Top 30

NSW 26  (10 of which are third party)
PS4 4   (3 of which are third party)

This week 10/13 = 77% of third party games were on the Switch.  For the past 3 months Switch has consistently had 60-80% of third party games in the top 30 and this week is no different.  Also, it is interesting to look at the progression of eBaseball 2020 on both platforms.  First week sales were almost the same, but the Switch version clearly has much better legs.

Week 28 (launch)
01./00. [NSW] eBaseball Powerful Pro Baseball 2020 (Konami) {2020.07.09} (¥6.980) - 94.876 / NEW <60-80%>
02./00. [PS4] eBaseball Powerful Pro Baseball 2020 (Konami) {2020.07.09} (¥7.980) - 91.547 / NEW <60-80%>

It's interesting that Animal Crossing is only #3 on the eShop.  Seems like most of it's sales are physical.  I think what happens in Japan is that most people buying Animal Crossing are new customers who buy a Switch at the same time.
