PS4 - 1

4 NEW 3rd Party games in GEO's Top 20 this week, Maglam Lord's PS4 version breaks the clean sweep for the Switch.
This week is the calm before the storm, as Monster Hunter Rise's initial shipment of 1.5 million is already selling out at some online stores and the game is still a few days shy of launch.

Nintendo is still king, but Sony is definitely putting in a respectable effort. I wonder if Microsoft sees any potential for Xbox hardware in Japan, or if they're hoping Gamepass catches on via mobile devices? Because at some point, its just not worth turning up.

Now the question is: why are people buying PS5s in Japan with no games?
Probably treating it as a Pro Pro for now and enjoying the better performance of games they already own (or are online). The real test for PS5 software will be Village.

I can only guess but I believe people are shifting to digital with PS5.




Demon’s Souls was first in 2020 and February.

No numbers on downloads。

As hami77 rightfully questions why download numbers are not shared the ranking is meaningless。The rest are pointing out stock issue or intention to purchase Switch instead。Only 7 comments but 6 not positive and one about simply wonders why grand theft auto still number 2 PS4 in the west。

Games are not selling because scalpers especially from China are buying them。I have a few family member and friends in shops and plenty of times non native speakers have acquired stock of PS5 console with no interest in buying software: they may attempt to sell local but mainly sell to other regions。This has happened before with PS4 released or maybe PS3 but I do not recall which。Foreigners buy these and other things and resell to outside the country。Shops try what they can such as lottery but regular people have life and jobs to attend to opposed to non guarantee wait or attempt to buy something。Sony lack of providing more machines in the country to buy as opposed to elsewhere is not helping and is frowned on as well as pointed out on comments in first URL link。

Scalpers and channelling it to outside of Japan.

Yes thank you。Takes me time to clean up English and you provided this as I was posting。

I mean the PS5 is already near to overcoming PS4 even with the supposed "flopped" launch lol
PS4 has no change at all.

Is that against the narrative created in Famitsu/Media Create threads? Yes. But that is the reality.

The PS4 had a really bad first year, the PS5 is worse and is now slightly catching up. Saying that the PS5 is now catching up to a bad PS4 launch means what exactly? It's still a bad launch. I'm not saying it can't recover (neither is the MC / Famitsu crowd), but this is a pitiful showing for the 4 first months, especially on the software end. In Japan people tended to go with retail software because you could resell it, especially for single player games. If I'm remembering correctly, Demon's Souls hasn't even cleared its first shipment in Japan yet.... which was pretty low to begin with (18K launch week with 20-40% sell through = 45K-90K).
