The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was a bit of a mixed bag. PlayStation 4 received multiple big games (which might as well have been exclusives given the lack of Xbox interest in Japan) like Jump Force, Catherine: Full Body, Far Cry: New Dawn, and Metro Exodus, but Sony’s console actually saw slightly decreased sales over last week, including Pro sales.

Meanwhile, Nintendo Switch coasted to an easy first place (and an increase of nearly 5,000 units sold over last week) despite having no major releases. Thus far, Switch’s 2019 performance has outpaced its 2018 numbers every single week. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate were the top Switch titles.
