RIP Playstation 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Damn that's a near shut out. 29/30 games for NSW. Cyberpunk is only in there, because it was a new game the previous week. It does seem like a true shut out is coming next week.



hory sheit! Bresu of ze wyrudu is at 1.7m :O and I did not notice how well Pikmin was doing until now :D



    R.I.P Mr Iwata :'(



This will be the worst year for Playstation hardware in Japan since the release year of the PS1.
Less than one million consoles sold in the calendar year, next week won't be enough to reach that.

Around the Network

With at least 1 big holiday title, Nintendo could have easily set records, or at a bare minimum maintained the momentum.

However their holiday lineup consisted of:
- Mario ports collection
- Zelda spinoff
- Mario Kart Toy bundled with an app
- Pikmin port

This translated to sales directly, not even one of them was able to sell a measly 500k. Too bad.

Proud poster of the 10000th reply at the Official Smash Bros Update Thread.

tag - "I wouldn't trust gamespot, even if it was a live comparison."

Bets with Conegamer:

Pandora's Tower will have an opening week of less than 37k in Japan. (Won!)
Pandora's Tower will sell less than 100k lifetime in Japan.
Stakes: 1 week of avatar control for each one.

Fullfilled Prophecies

Is the Switch still supply constrained in Japan? These past few weeks disappointed a little.

Now I can’t help but wonder if Momotaro will be able to take the #1 spot here just before Monster Hunter arrives.



Chart time.

2020 data is ofc not finished yet and everything before 1997 is hard to find data that is why its mostly missing.

Hardware manufacturer yearly sales in Japan, everything combined.

NINTENDO

SONY

MICROSOFT
