Somewhere. I think.
Wasn't sure what to expect for Labo, but looks like it did pretty great. Now to see legs and holiday sales. Good second week for The Snack World, too.

Switch sales pretty meh, though GW is just around the corner.

Good Labo launch, though the ratio is heavily in favour of Variety Kit (Robo Kit is still a mystery for me). Okay launch for GoW but it's going to disappear off the charts as soon as it came. Metal Max Xeno seems to have been severely overshipped in its second week. Good 2nd week for Snack World. Switch hardware hasn't been moved by Labo yet but we'll see what Golden Week has to say about that. The rest is irrelevant, and especially PS4 numbers again.

Good to see Labo doing well over there, although I'm surprised that the Robot Kit didn't sell higher. I'd figured that the Robot Kit would be huge there.

Glad Labo had a good first week, considering this seems more like a slow burn product that will hit hard around Christmas. Didn't seem to affect hardware much though.

Labo is doing pretty well it seems like...?

And what the hell with Metal Max. It seems like the game is overshipped.

Labo did a lot better than I expected! I'm surprised to see Switch sales down. Thought there might be a slight bump from Labo.

MHW likely to be out of the top 20 next week.

The Pro over the PS4 is interesting. Guess stock is still an issue? I wonder if the baseline will be closer to 20k once Sony gets their stock sorted. Can't believe Sony is dropping the ball here. They should easily be able to supply PS4s at this stage in its life.

Solid and expected sales overall.
Interesting sales didn't increase due to Labo, figured it would have been more of a system seller.
Labo right now is something for people who own a Switch...not neccesarly something casuals are gonna spend 40k yen to be able to play it, if Mario Kart, Zelda and Splatoon werent already reason enough to get the system.

PS4 shortages really not ending? or Sony planning to perma drop the price soon?
Well Slim model sold only 4.5k this week (and dropped another 5k from last week) which would indicate that there is still shortages. It's normally way more popular model and no way is selling 5k just because lack of demand.

Labo did well, but it wasn't a blockbuster in its first week. Certainly didn't move hardware (I assume there aren't still shortages). But it wouldn't shock me if this had a long tail like some other Nintendo products.

Labo I think is pretty solid for what it is.

Snack world had a much better hold than expected.

PS4 is weird. I see that the pro did more, but its sales of only 30% lower than last year, so I'm curious if how much would be moving if fully stocked.

Wow, go Labo!

Seems like Amazon will be stocking more PS4 slims at the end of the month. Plenty of Pro's to be had, though.

Overall this week in 2012 launched the second biggest title for the 3DS during the first 6 months of that year. Fire Emblem ended up selling over 450K during 2012. Labo Variety and Robot I believe had a decent launch and should end up selling well above FE:A by the end of 2018. On the other hand Hardware sales for the Switch this week was disappointing - was expecting a larger amount of hardware sold due to Labo launch.
In other news Snack World is on it's way to 100K as I said last week I expected it to overtake DQB/AOT2 by the end of April and it nearly did in it's second week.

Wasn’t Metal Max supposed to crash previous DS/3DS entries...? With digital it did better than 2 Reload and 4 but it doesn’t seem it broke through. It might still well below 3 opening.

Labo did a lot better than I expected! I'm surprised to see Switch sales down. Thought there might be a slight bump from Labo.
I suspect that any Labo impact on hardware would be a slower burn, dependent on getting non-Switch-owners' eyes on the product. Now it's out in the wild, that's got more potential to happen (with either seeing it in others' houses or through viral content). If it does happen, I suspect it'll be slowly over the next few weeks.

Word of mouth has to spread to get people to buy a Switch and Labo. It's not surprising that the sales mainly went to people who already own a Switch.

People still going on about PS4 shortages, even though Switch:PS4 has been selling 3:1 for about a year now, huh?

Decent introduction of Labo, 120k across both SKU, but a drop in hardware the week before Golden Week is no bueno.

Labo's success is something to be determined through its legs.

Let us hope it gains traction, I think it did good for first week!

The Snack World did pretty good in its second week. If it holds well during Golden Week it might reach 100k easily.

PS4 still selling poorly—stock issues or not, its 2018 performance is disappointing also in terms of software with MHW the only overperforming title.

Variety Kit seems to have done very well, though I thought the Robot Kit was going to sell more than that. Also a bit surprised that Switch sales didn't go up.

Didn't Kadokawa say it did over 50k?

Must be either quite overshipped or have an insane digital ratio...
