The Nintendo Switch Versus The PS4: A Japanese Sales Comparison

It’s still early for the Switch. But let’s see how the new Nintendo hardware holds up against the PS4's first few weeks on sale in Japan.

As Kotaku pointed out late last month, Switch sales actually were on the up tick in March, nearly doubling during its fourth week out in Japan.

Via 2ch, here is how the Switch and PS4 sales compare during their first seven weeks on sale. (Note: The sales data is from Media Create. The character 週 means “week,” and the characters 完売 means “sold out.”)

As you can see, Switch sales are holding steady, with each shipment apparently selling out. In comparison, the PS4 sales were declining during the same window.

It will be interesting to see where the Switch is fifteen weeks in. Remember, this is a marathon and not a sprint.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
