Japan is the cradle of video games and, while not wanting to take away any merit from the West, we often look towards the East to find out what’s new and interesting on the horizon. The two big names of the Rising Sun that “fight” for a long time are obviously Sony and Nintendo, which in this generation have shown two excellent consoles like PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Now, through Famitsu, we discover that the Kyoto house is on the verge of overcoming its rival.

In fact, according to the magazine’s estimates, Nintendo Switch has entered the homes of over eight million Japanese fans; more precisely, we are talking about 8,000,058 units sold. The most important detail, however, is that the hybrid of the great N is about to surpass PS4, which currently stands at 8,033,587 units sold.
