Probably too early to say for sure, but I'd say we can expect Switch to stay around 35k-50k for the next couple of months.

Okayish debut for Little Dragons Café, but I'm not expecting any legs.

Also, RIP Octopus Voyager :(

Crazy how the best-selling Switch game is now a third-party game available on all platforms under the sun. It just shows how popular Minecraft is in Japan.

It'll likely do another million on Switch.

Odyssey dropped from the top 20 for the first time since launch.

Splatoon 2 keeps growing lol

Little Dragons Cafe bomba on PS4.

Super Mario Odyssey and Octopath are out, but we don't know what that means: the barrier to entry for the top 20 is higher than OT's sales number from last week, for example.

RIP Octopath, Square Enix really didn’t expect you to sell at all...

Optimistically speaking, mayhaps the bigger PS4 drops compared to Switch are for Spider-Man, everyone waiting to buy that bundle.

Wow at those Naruto numbers! I guess the West will need to save it from being a Rasengan bomba.

Also, no more Odyssey charting. End of an era.

Why are people surprised at PS4 number?
It was already at that level before Obon ....
PS4 is almost guaranteed to be down YoY this year unless there is a surprise performance from upcoming software, which I don't think will happen.

I'm actually surprised at USUM performance.
A lot of people thought it was going to underperform, but almost 1 year later it's still going strong.
On a platform that is deemed to be dead (kinda true).
USUM has done really well for a 3rd version considering the situation

Not surprisingly after the decent showing of Japan during the World Cup, Winning Eleven 2019 does a better launch than last year (64.342) although it's pretty much the same if you add the PS3 version of WE 2018 (12.777)

I will never be not puzzled on how SQEX "sabotaged" their own game this hard in Japan. This makes me actually glad that Nintendo took over publishing in the west.

Boring Week is Boring. Sad to see Octopath go already, but given that it won July NPD, I'm not too worried about it. Evergreens continue to hold well.

Surprised that Little Dragon's Cafe performed better than the PS4 version (then again Switch's audience seem a good fit for it).

Still, not an impressive week.

Wow, Conan still doing well, didn't expect that.
And yeah, Switch is definitely going above PS4 LTD at the end of the year given the rhythm and schedule for both.

Looking at last year's numbers hardware will start growing around week 43-44.

Come now, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is bound to sell nicely, even if it's sharing the spotlight with Switch version. Not sure how much of an HW bosst it'll provide considering there's already DQB and DQXI on the platform, though...
Yea its a nice release, but a 200-300K seller that's multiplat being your biggest release for the next 5 months or so isn't a healthy situation.

Sony exclusives no longer sell in Japan. They won't have a big 3rd party exclusive every quarter, the situation won't get better on this front.

Damn the Switch is already 5 million and ps4 is only 7 million? The switch is going outsell the PS4 next year for sure.

Can Bandai Namco stop releasing licensed/family games exclusively for PS4 now? These last two weeks prove how bad this strategy is. It's non-sensical.

They have several titles that would perform better on Switch, while still having keeping their PS4 sales.

I guess Octopath is never getting its chance on the charts. Is there still a shortage?
It's in stock at 2 stores in my town, sold out at a few. But easily available online. Frankly it's too late now. This was game release suicide.

On a different note, was someone doing a comparison of Switch and PS4 multi-platform game released on the same day? We have some new data points.
