Latest charts from Media Create are in.
Mario outsells the rest of the list combined.
Was there any question that a Nintendo system would outsell everything else in Japan? Especially a Nintendo system that's mainly a hand-held one!
So much salt 🤣
Says the Nintendo loyalist... Btw I still hold N close to my heart and I dont like salt, its bad for my diet/gym routine ;-)
Mario first week 1/2 of DQXI for PS4.
Mario first week was 2 days, lol
Mario is going to outsell it easily lol. On a smaller brand new installed Base. It's an evergreen title
DQXI first week was also 2 days.
PS4 has a few million more users now doesn't it? Let's see which one sells more in the end, shall we?
Splatoom 2 retail sales about to pass DQXI playstation 4 retail sales
Mario is saving Japanese Game Industry. Yes !
we knew the xbox one was crushed early in japan, but soon the switch will be crushing the PS4 in total market share in japan as well. in the first 6 months of the console being on sale (26 weeks) in japan the switch sold over 1.5 million systems with stock shortages. they say it took 69 weeks for the ps4 to do the same. that’s crazy. At this pace it won’t take long for the switch to overtake the ps4 in japan.
well.. the PS4 still has a few million lead over the Switch in Japan (PS4 crossed 5 million recently IIRC). But at the pace the Switch is selling, it will happen sooner or later indeed.
Next year most likely, especially if Pokemon launches next year. The switch will easily be at 2.5-3.5 million there by the end of this year.
If Pokemon launches next year, espcially with more Switch owners than now, the sale is gonna be crazy.
Krib I think sony will be happy with good sales moving forward even if switch outsells the ps4. Whatever sales Sony gets in Japan is just bonus basically Japanese gamers like handheld gaming and Nintendo said over 60% of games played on switch are done so in portable mode Overall ps4 is outselling switch and Xbox one world wide. World wide there hasn't been a single month where switch outsold the ps4 that's why ps4 is over 67 million
Um no. The Switch is outselling the ps4 worldwide and wrong. It is used mostly as both. So much salt and denial.
michellelynn0976 not according to nintendo's own data which they revealed just few days back at their investors meeting but who knows maybe you know more than nintendo and ps4 is outselling the switch world wide. do you know what world wide means? it means ps4 overall is outselling the switch while switch is outselling ps4 in some markets
And rememer, Xbox One is in last, 3rd place, in Japan and worldwide.
Give Xbox one x a chance
Switch selling like a holiday week already. Holiday numbers might hit a 200,000+ week. Insane.
It might go beyond that. If Nintendo can restock Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2 Bundle in Japan. It could reach 300K. Meaning the Switch has a chance of being at 3 million units sold by the end of this year in Japan. Meaning not only it will outsell the Wii U in one year in Japan but also Worldwide.
Wow, Wii U was such a failure...
So was the Vita and it has hardly any decent games. 3DS carried Nintendo into the mighty position they're in now
Whoa would you look at that. Mario alone outsell every games on the list combined. Nintendo hits jackpot here. Hope this momentum continues well beyond Xmas. Also, this was only 2 days after Mario Oddessy launched. Cant wait to see next week's Media Create. To those who made fun of Mario Oddessy when it got outsold by ACO in the UK, this may opened your eyes abit.
it was only outsold on the combined sales. On the individual chart it outsold AC Origins on the PS4 (which is the version that sold the most). Crazy considering the Switch only has about 2 million UK owners vs about 25 million PS4 owners. https://www.chart-track.co....
@Waqar - sorry my numbers are for all of Europe. mixed that one up, thanks for pointing that out. Still, the margin is still slanted in favour of the PS4 regardless. Heavily slanted.
@Waqar - no clue, can't find that list anywhere. All we know is Mario did over 2 million globally in 3 days.
Even crazier is that in top 10 there are 6 PS4 games and only 1 (one) Switch game.
Pretty bad debut for Super Mario in UK. Over 79k, Crash did over 100k. But it's expected. Switch (and 3DS and Wii U) are/were dead in UK
@Lime - where are your numbers for Mario? You realize that out of your 6 PS4 titles in the top 10 (UK list) only 1 is an exclusive right?
Simply Amazing, It will be a very similar story for the NPD for Nov. I like all 3 big game systems but Nintendo games are by far my favorite games of all time. The Switch will only get better with time
Between Nintendo and PlayStation I'm guessing the total market control (today) is eighty to ninety percent.
Not even close
What's not even close..sales or the switch being unstoppable?
I agree. Last quarter: PS4 - 4.2 million shipped Switch - 2.93 million shipped ?
Switch number is sold, not shipped. PS4 number is shipped, however.
Switch numbers was sales. Not shipped.
Nintendo stock piling Switch hardware again.
That is highly possible. But the way it's selling has to be a bit tough to keep up/catch up , consider they were have chip problems along with apple.
Mario obviously sells a lot. That's not a surprise.
Have to give credit where credit is due. Mario does wonders for Nintendo. Sony in all it's glory really needs some titles to start coming back with more life. They need the legit GT7, Monster Hunter World's looks to be gaining good pre-order numbers there. They need KH3 and FF7-R to make their appearance already. Hopefully Ghost of Tsushima caters to them well.
I want to walk a for in Lime's shoes. Nintendo is back on top right where they belong. Okay no, these are stupid shoes. I'm glad Nintendo is doing well again. Gaming needs all 3 companies to be successful in order for it to thrive.
Big week for Nintendo yet again. Odyssey is another system seller for the Switch. Well played Nintendo.
