Still 56K for Nintendo Switch.
Seven weeks and less than 300,000 units to go.
Even with Devil May Cry 5 the PS4 only sold half of the Switch's numbers that week.
It appears the Switch is selling 50,000 units more than the PS4 each week in Japan.
Four weeks. Let's keep it up.
Back to counting. That's three.
If you ask me, only a PS5 will be able to stop the Switch's Japanese streak this time around.
Well that didn't last long.
48 weeks. 48 WEEKS. SORA Y U DO DIS!!!!!!
If Kingdom Hearts III doesn't stop the Switch's streak I don't think anything can.
The holiday season's annual sales boom is now entirely over.
I used to think it would take fall 2019 for the Switch to surpass the PS4 in Japan, but at the rate of things I'm more looking at E3 2019 or even sooner.
The Switch in Japan is already less than one million units away from the PS4. Which in conjunction with its momentum means you really must not like consumer money as a Japanese developer if you're not putting your game on Nintendo's platform.
There's usually a hardware sales dip right after the launch of a big title, but given the holiday season and other parameters, the Switch only lost 9 units from its Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launch momentum.
Nearly 300,000 Switches sold in a single week in Japan thanks to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Weird, they only showed sales numbers for the top 20 this time again.
40 weeks in a row. Also, Media Create now shows sales numbers for each of the 50 titles in charts.
Now the holiday season really begins.
The Switch is now back above 50K a week and it will only get better once the holiday season really starts kicking in.
