    Switch sales are almost identical to last week's - not surprising, considering this is Christmas time, but still impressive. And also, holy shit, is Switch going to outsell the lifetime sales for the PS4 in Japan?
    6.4mil vs. 7.5mil...

    EDIT: Oh jesus, 2.7mil lifetime units for Splatoon 2 in Japan? I keep forgetting how much Japan loves the games.

    shouldn't it be "Judge eyes" instead of judgement since this is japan's sales? I hope this sells well on the west.

    I wonder if that increase in Xbone sales has anything to do with the exclusive demo for DMC5?

    It was kinda obvious that Smash would do great. I think that that advertising paid off.

    I like the way it's only jap sales that get posted. Is this by fans that like to get wet to see Nintendo titles doing well, when Nintendo usually dominate in the jap regions.

    Think with Nintendo titles us like the console, you can grab about getting fast sales but that soon dries down and rarely ever sells more than a said title on other systems.
