PS4 and Switch are performing extremely well in Japan

Xbox One didn’t even manage to sell over 300 units that week in the region

Xbox doesn't have much to offer anybody outside of the US (they seem to be the main group that's fixated on racing games and dudebro shooters) so of course it won't sell well anywhere else, it was tailored to their own demographic.

Xbox won't ever do well in Japan

Xbox shouldn't even be in the conversation when it comes to sales in Japan.

In a few weeks MHW should reach 2 million sold physical only.
Fifth week in a row PS4 on top.
PS4 leads Switch by over 140k YTD.

Yes, both great consoles. Happy for both companies and happy to be a gamer right now. Just wish I had more time...

Monster Hunter rolling along nicely. Congrats to Splatoon 2 for crossing the 2 million physical mark (impressive feat for a game like that).

Damn Monster Hunter: World has already outsold Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, & Pokémon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon in Japan. It’s even quickly approaching Splatoon 2’s numbers within the region.

This game is a beast if I ever saw one, and it’s especially notable because it’s succeeding very well on a non portable device in Japan.
