Damn, those sales are just insane for Switch.
Launch aligned comparison until the first holiday is the most reasonable one.
Edit: Of course, the two aren't really comparable. A more comparable situation is when you take PS4 sales as of March 2nd (13.7M) and subtract that from the January 6th numbers, which will give you a number for 10 months of PS4 (but missing launch from that). Doing so gives 68.1M, which is over what Switch sold, quite likely, as you mention, in large part at least due to the 3rd party support.
Monster Hunter World is a roaring success. Switch is a roaring success. Yo, Japan is just doing bits right now. I love it.
I think Sony/MS include digital only sales, but I'm not sure.
Can't wait to see media create chart :D
Animal Crossing: New Leaf still trucking along...
07./07. - Animal Crossing: New Leaf - 11.59 million units (+360 000 units)
But nothing compared to the Mario couple:
05./05. - New Super Mario Bros. 2 - 12.43 million units (+700 000 units)
06./06. - Super Mario 3D Land - 11.77 million units (+670 000 units)
Damn those two deserved their evergreen status, just like Mario Kart 7 (+560 000 units. And they didn't even a re-release like AC New Leaf (ie: Welcome amiibo, not just Nintendo Selects).
PS4 Pro 30,122
New2DS LL 6,842
New3DS LL 3,377
Xbox One X 1,618
Xbox One 68
Nanatsu no Bomba: 7k
xx went up too lol
iirc, my prediction for MHW FW was 2 Million units, Japan only
It's a great debut. More than doubling Tri's lackluster launch. 2 million is a sure bet and it might even go past 2.5 if legs are good. It'll be a drop from 4, but just like 3U releasing on 3DS was a massive drop from P3rd, developing on PS4 was the only realistic choice for the franchise to bet on franchise growth. And while the real test will be WW sales, Japan definately showed up in droves, all things considered.
Mario Rabbids is doing really well
