Was Japan crazy for Nintendo during the PS2 era?
PS2 sold 20+M (was still outselling PS3 in like 2007), GBA 18M before it was discontinued. GC only sold 4M and N64 wasn't very popular there (5.5M).

Yes, Nintendo has generally be pretty popular in Japan.

Pretty funny that the regular Switch version outsold the new best price versions. That's really odd, did people not know or were retailers just trying to get rid of the regular Switch version?

It's hardly shocking that a portable console that plays Mario and Zelda is gonna be popular in a country where the average living space is the size of a broom closet
That's unfair to say. Before the DS people in Japan bought the Gameboy, but it was mainly the PS2, and before that PS1 and Famicom systems.

The Nintendo DS changed the whole landscape. And because of it, people in Japan have adopted mobile and continue to play portable systems. By the time the DS came out the japanese market was in trouble. The DS re-energized it, and dramatically so. And the effects are still being felt today.

It's not "only" about gaming being portable. It's more complicated than that.

The Nintendo DS changed the whole landscape. And because of it, people in Japan have adopted mobile and continue to play portable systems. By the time the DS came out the japanese market was in trouble. The DS re-energized it, and dramatically so. And the effects are still being felt today.

It's not "only" about gaming being portable. It's more complicated than that.
I think that the only thing that stopped the gba being one of the 3 most successful consoles ever in japan was the early release of the DS. But in 2004/2005 I'm not sure that gaming market was in trouble at all, PS2 and GBA together were smashing records.
GB and GBC sold massive amount of consoles, and GBA would have sold a lot more if had the time.
Portability is a huge factor for japan sales.

What’s up with RAGE 2 suddenly selling @@?
Western AAA games have been consistently been hitting #1 in Japan for the last several months or so.
PC gaming has also increased, with western games being the largest draw.
Nintendo could be in serious trouble if it doesn't have a solution for games that require realistic graphics.

Don’t know why I thought the game came before 2 months. That’s why I was surprised >_>

The / NEW means it just released and this is the 1st week of sales. I don't know much about that game, but I'm guessing it already released in the rest of the world a while back? Wouldn't surprise me given the small numbers it's getting in JP anyways.

For some perspective for folks, here's a post Aquamarine posted back end of 2013 showing how much each console sold per year before then.

i had no idea western FPS games were anywhere at all on Japan's radar. Times have changed.

Just for some context, Western games are selling much much better than before, but largely are nowhere near the sales of top JP games. I don't really agree about the "nintendo could be in serious trouble" point, since those will continue going Sony's way anyways. Nintendo easily sells like 25-30% of software in JP, not even counting the 5-6% Pokemon company provides.

For example CoD had its best sales close to 500K recently. Something like the Witcher 3 hit 200K, and Spiderman 300K at the top end of the spectrum. Minecraft and GTAV are the exceptions (GTAV across PS3 & PS4 ~ 1M, Minecraft... well that's like close to 3M so far... >1M on Vita alone, close to 1M on Switch and we're not even including digital sales).
