Switch is on fire and it's still selling out. Sales are strongest in the two weeks before Christmas so long as Nintendo gets the stock out there it should have no problem reaching 200,000 the next 2-3 weeks. If they ship out enough stock they may even manage 300,000. Either way it will be at around 3.15-3.35 million for the end of the year . . . right around the lifetime sales of the Wii U in less than ten months on the market. At the current sales rates the Switch will surpass the PS4 there sometime late next year or early 2019 (probably depends on when Pokemon launches). With no handheld anywhere in the foreseeable future Nintendo will have Japan on lock unless the Japanese' preference for on-the-go gaming changes.

Yep, I just wish Nintendo dominates in any other country. In November NPD PS4 raped Switch 2:1 and it leads YTD in US, UK and whole Europe.

The 10th Rider2120d ago

Eh, whatever floats your boat. Also that NPD data isn't confirmed yet and you're ignoring most of the previous months.

I find these Japanese sales exciting because it means the Switch will be getting a lot of third party Japanese games. When it's clear the Switch is going to dominate the Japanese market then it's far more likely that games like Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, Nioh, Neir, Tekken, and many more will likely be made with the Switch in mind. Many third party Japanese games this gen have been Playstation exclusive, but that will no longer be the case and many of them will be coming to Switch as well. Having those games available on more consoles for more people to enjoy is a great thing for gaming. It also basically guarantees that the Switch will be the best console to get access to Japanese titles from here on out.

In the US that's not such a big deal. The Switch install base is going to be compared to the PS4 + the Xbox One there. Although the Switch install base will be large enough to attract notice, it's not going to outsell the PS4 + the Xbox One and make the splash in the market that it will in Japan.

Neonridr2120d ago

No you don't.. you don't wish that at all. Switch won the past 3 NPD's or whatever. You didn't bat an eye. Now PS4 wins November NPD and suddenly you are all over it.

Lime is such a fitting name considering the bitterness.

I just wish you just stop commenting in Nintendo related articles altogether. You are a cancer to this gaming community.

isn't nintendo always on fire in japan?

The 10th Rider2119d ago

Wii U did okay relative to worldwide sales, but it's nowhere near the Switch. The Switch even seems to be tracking ahead of the 3DS.

Moonman2119d ago

Everything you stated is truly amazing. Go Nintendo! :)

Nyxus2120d ago

Good to see Yakuza doing well!

Lime1232120d ago

Yep, best selling game last week in Japan!

mikel10152119d ago

Not really. It's the second worst selling Yakuza title ever. Not doing "well"

Nyxus2119d ago

Can't be that bad if it's on top.

_-EDMIX-_2119d ago

? I mean I'm not sure why you didn't even consider that you're only talking about a few days sale it also has yet to release worldwide so I'm not entirely sure how you could confirm it's the second worst selling but it's only been on sale for a few days..

I don't even think that matters to Sega they just care that the game selling at all so when you're reaching at the top of the charts, trust me, they don't care.

Also understand that this is before an official worldwide release.

Wow, PS4 Pro outsold the standard ps4

Also, who was it that was saying Xenoblade would be evergreen? It dropped like a rock.

septemberindecember2120d ago

It had the best opening of a Xenoblade title to date. That's still good.

Knushwood Butt2119d ago

michellelynn09767d ago
Xenoblade is now becoming a huge franchise for Nintendo and it will be an ever green title

2118d ago
michellelynn09762118d ago

Well, it looks like it will sell 200k. Still pretty good.

WPX2119d ago

Like Gran Turismo Sport?

Knushwood Butt2119d ago

First post in 125 days and that's the best you could come up with?

I never claimed GT Sport would be evergreen in Japan, but for some fun, why don't you crawl out from under your rock in another 125 days and we'll see how Xenoblade 2 is faring against GT Sport globally.

WPX2119d ago (Edited 2119d ago )

LOL triggered much?
Just did same that you did, some steath trolling.
LMAOing my way the rock now LOL.

Theknightofnights2119d ago

@Knushwood Butt

You are attacking him because he doesn't post very often on N4G?

He probably tries to avoid this place because of people like you, who try to troll other fanbases and attack people.

Gemmol2119d ago

It's tracking ahead of other xenoblade its first week and second week still.higher than all the other in the past

It's an improvement

Nintendo is dominating Japan. Most of the top 20 is Switch and 3DS games some of which have remained in the top ten for months now. To see Splatoon still selling like that after launching last July is crazy. Congrats Nintendo on another steller week.

Mr_Luke2119d ago

Wow, people in Japan like Yakuza! And i wasn't expecting a second place for Earth Defense Force, not bad. And as usual great sales for Switch and Nintendo in general, congratulations!
