No. In Jan 2018 there was nothing, in 2019 there is NSMBU and even if you don't want to accept this idea : this game will keep selling just constantly, it will keep selling at a regular pace in 2 years still while everybody will have forgotten RDR2...EVERY 5-6 years old children are just a bit too young to handle Mario Odysee but NSMBU is perfect for them.

Would Super Mario Maker 2 kill its legs? 

In some degree, main point of NSMBU DX is local Co-Op with 2-4 players, while with Mario Maker is making and playing made levels.

I think Mario Maker 2 is gonna have co-op though. Look at the box art and this promotional art and seriously tell me it won't have it.



I do not think Microsoft is worried about Xbox1 as they are poised to dominate the next generation.

Wait, what??  You do know that those consoles were competing against the PS1 and PS2, right? 


NES+Master System+Atari 7800-~75 million

SNES+Genesis+Turbografx-~90 million

PS1+N64+Saturn-~145 million

PS2+XB+GC+DC-~210 million

Wii+PS3+360-~275 million

 

His point stands, selling ~50 million in the mid-late 2010s is not the same as selling that amount in the 80s or 90s. It represented a much larger marketshare back then.

Have you guys factored in inflation and pricing differences in different times? Just saying that there's more factors in play than just the market growing.

Yeah, you are probably right, and that would be big difference compared to first game.

But again, NSMBU DX offers 2-4 local player.

What makes you think that?



I guess I missed the time of the original discussion.

But Switch done good. Almost outsold PS4+X1.

Wasn't 2018 a 5 week January? So Switch did 54k a week last January versus 71k a week this January, I think. A good start to the year for Nintendo.

With halo, gears, crackdown and forza. Isnt it obvious ?

Yeah. And handheld market size. The population Grow, adjust inflation, new market ( like ocurrs in PS1 era), etc.
