All these 'relocate stock from Finland/New Zealand' posts are of course nonsense, but for context, at least for Australia, the Wii/PS2 sold around 2 million each, LTD in Australia, to explain the size of the market. Aka it's about 1/10 the size of the Japanese market.

Any smaller countries in Europe outside of UK, France, Germany, Italy, probably add up to around a similar figure combined I'm guessing, based on a quick lookup of Wii/PS2 console sales totals.

So you could maybe add 20% to Japan's stock if all those countries got zero Switches from day 1. Now, all the stock would already be shipped and packaged and probably paid for by the retailers for the individual markets, so it's not like you could reverse the allocation anyway.

Obon was yesterday, and the only public holiday day was on Friday. Today is a just a plain old regular work day.

Besides, if data was to be late, 4Gamer would have put up a notice (they haven't). So nope, no delay (well, there will because Chris1964 isnt there to make the thread, so someone will have to fill in).

Going by the data from https://newzoo.com/insights/rankings/top-100-countries-by-game-revenues/ , Australia is pretty much exactly your 10% of the japanese market :p Even though it doesn't tell us about the split on PC/mobile/the different consoles, I went ahead and summed up the market of all european countries except for Germany, UK, France, Spain and Italy, and the total comes out at ~4.7 billion $, which is quite a bit more than expected.

Hiska-kun, always there to make the thread whenever Chris is away!

And L~A always posts the hardware numbers in the previous thread before hiska gets the new thread up with both hardware & software.

I guess I can do the thread, but I'm not as fast as Chris, so patience.
Ah, thanks a lot. Was thinking of doing it myself, but too busy to make anything but ghetto post. Whole 1st page would be nothing but "Wtf is this shit OP, where's Chris?!"
(up until the first "Is PSVR really selling out / Xbox One is a beast post to derail the discussion)

Our three MC pillars!
I'd have to check but at this point I think Chris has probably done the Media-Create threads longer and more consistently than anyone else. donny2112, cvxfreak, and a few others used to do them but they were more spread out I think and would often trade weeks.

Shame Switch wasn't higher, but nice Splatoon numbers at least.

Is the Snack World number good? Doesn't seem like a total bomb at least I guess. Maybe it'll develop legs.

The Snack World debut is actually pretty ok, but nothing mindblowing. Yo-kai Watch opened at 52k (Media Create), but before the anime (Snack World anime has been airing since April). Up coming weeks, especially post-Summer months, will tell us what to expect from this game. Legs will make or break it.

Switch is still holding out well, splatoon will hit a million in a week or so
Next week is final week of the holidays I think that should probably mean that we'd have Switch supply before the post-holidays drop off

1-2 Switch getting closer to 250K.

3DS indeed seems a bit on the low side, but I expect bigger sales next week.

Switch staying strong! Nice.
Seems that Bic lottery allocations are indeed a good way to predict numbers.

185 people who stood in line and failed to get a Switch decided to buy Splatoon anyway cuz they didn't want to go home empty handed.

I say it's strong given that we are up year over year and software is selling well.
The year ends in December.

With the weak release schedule of both 3DS and PS4 comparing to last year after Obon we will see which system will stay close or fall behind.

I was a bit disappointed with PS4 34k but now I saw it was without Pro... 42k is a good hold from last week.
