The latest charts from Famitsu show that the Nintendo Switch system has now overtaken Sony’s PlayStation 4 console in Japan. The Nintendo Switch has been on the market for 114 weeks and the PlayStation 4 has been around for 274 weeks, so it is a rather impressive feat. Both systems are attempting to divert Japanese gamers away from smartphone games, which are ridiculously popular there.
- PS4: 8,077,756 (272 weeks)
- Switch: 8,125,637 (114 weeks)
