Wow, some real low ball numbers for PS4!! I thought the awful numbers last week were due to supply issues??? Are there supply issues still? Or no new releases to spur sales?

Switch 35K
PS4 9K
Snack World 42K
Kirby 26K
Cities Skyline 18K

To me really low numbers means that this week PS4 is below 5 figures. I expect a smaller week for the Switch as well. While Snack World I think will do over >40K and Kirby will temporary fall below 30K(will be back >30K next week).

In other news Labo Variety has claimed the first spot on Amazon.co.jp:

I don't get how PS4 can have stock issues. It didn't sell that much in previous weeks.
Historically we've seen this happen before where a model/SKU switch did not line up well with existing production phase out - eg. PS2 -> Slim switch led with several weak months of Fat model being phased out, than followed by weak months of Slim production not ramping out sufficiently quickly.
Dunno if anything of the sort is happening this year (the increased demand in Jan/Feb sure - but unless there was a model phase-out following, that wouldn't explain it on its own).
