Splatoon truly is new Japan mascot, absolute insanity at this point.

Will probably be bigger than Pokémon in Japan in some years.

Switch at double the PS4.

Nice debut for Everybody's Golf. I really need to pick up this game.

Kribwalker15d ago

And that's with still limited stock 😉

Neonridr15d ago

oh definitely. It could easily move many more units if people could actually get their hands on one.

Lime12315d ago (Edited 15d ago )

PS4 beats 3DS. Good job Sony!

Neonridr15d ago

lol.. well at least you have something to cheer about I guess. 3DS is only at 22 million or so in Japan. So the PS4 only has like 16-17 million more units to sell to catch up.

septemberindecember14d ago (Edited 14d ago )

Yep, by about 120 units.

Lime12315d ago

PS4 is at 5.2 million, Switch at 1.5 million, so only 3.7 million gap.

Neonridr15d ago (Edited 15d ago )

yes, but the Switch is gaining each day... so the Switch will pass the PS4. The PS4 would be lucky to sell over 20 million units in Japan. The PS2 sold 23 million. PS3 sold 11 million. So the likelihood of the PS4 passing the 3DS is next to nothing.

The Switch has only been out for six months compared to almost 4 years for PS4. And, the Switch has outsold the PS4 3 to one in the first six months.

@Neondriďr
The PS2 is at 22m since the 3DS passed it late last year.

@Neonridr

at this rate, I think 15mil is a more realistic target for the PS4 in Japan before Sony release the PS5

It's a lot of fun. They really take the Golf thing and make a game out of it with great single player gameplay on top of super fun multiplayer with tons of (no paywalls) customization.

And on top of all that it's a steal brand new for only $40.

Everybody's Golf had better debut than Monster Hunter on Switch?

Neonridr15d ago

Depends really, Monster Hunter sales were split since it only registered for 3 days on last weeks charts. That being said, again there are like 3 million more PS4 owners than Switch owners. So shouldn't a PS4 game outsell a Switch game? Plus, Japan loves those Hot Shot Golf games, so no surprise that it sold. Let's see which one sells more in the long run though.

michellelynn097614d ago

Six Switch games in the top 20. Very good, Splatoon is killing it in Japan. I love that game, I love playing with friends and just having a blast.

Big_Game_Hunters14d ago

50K Switches sold as well as 50k Splatoon2 copies lol, Coincidence?
