    Miyamotoo said: Uf, my mistake I wanted to wrote every single month instead of every single market. Talking about 3DS in Japan, 3DS needed huge price drop in order to start selling much better, and like you wrote 3DS had very strong sales in Japan and its 3rd best selling gaming hardware ever in Japan, while Switch still have launch price and very high price point for typical handheld...

So despite Switch still didnt had any any big year this year or any price cut still, until August is selling on pair of what PS4 was selling in 2014. and 2015., very impressive for Switch and Switch would easily beat PS4 in those years with sales in November and December. Also, Switch beating 3DS in every single market with obvious difference is also very...

    A few more charts:           The XBO's surplus versus the 360 continues to rapidly erode, and will be at a deficit by the end of the year. The PS4 of course retains a much larger surplus against the 360, but it too is starting to erode. It will take longer to do so, but the PS4 is not going to outsell the second best-selling console in the history of the...

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi Is Currently The Best Selling Blu-ray Of 2018 (USA)

    in Movies Discussion 6 days ago

    thismeintiel said: Sorry for the late reply.  So, where to start. First of all, "9% of its opening gross?"  How large of a window do you think an opening entails?  From the Wed ROTJ opened through its first Sun, it made $99.06M, adjusted.  Fri-Sat it made $67.74M (still a damn good start for a modestly budgeted blockbuster today, 35 years later), which is 68.4%. ...

    The N64 Controller's Tri-Handle Layout Revisited From a Modern Perspective

    in Nintendo Discussion 6 days ago

    The N64 controller was adequate for the time, given most of the games available for the system. It had good, rounded, ergonomic grips on it, and the Z-trigger and analog stick were positioned well and made gripping the center handle comfortable. Nintendo for the most part knew how to make the best of the controller's unconventional layout. However, it was ill-suited for first-person games...

    Megaman 11 Demo now available. (Switch/PS4/XBO)

    in Gaming Discussion on 09 September 2018

    I played it Friday night. Holy crap, that was difficult. Of course, I wouldn't expect anything less. Each game takes practice to master, even if you're a vet of the series. It took me a good while to get good at Mega Man 9 & 10 even though I've been playing MM games since 1988. The Gear System adds more depth to the gameplay, but it doesn't make it any easier. Block Man's level was longer than...

    OlfinBedwere said: I'd think a reasonable expectation for The Last Jedi would have been about two-thirds of what The Force Awakens earned at the box-office, seeing how that's what The Empire Strikes Back earned compared to A New Hope, and Attack of the Clones earned compared to The Phantom Menace. And guess what? That's exactly how much money The Last Jedi made! Heck, even Solo was only...

    Facebook may go away, but not anytime soon, because there isn't a good alternative to it right now. Of course, we middle-aged (well, maybe not quite, but getting close) and old folks still use it as a way to keep in touch with people, plus the messenger is a free alternative to text messaging. If and when someone comes out with a social network that's as good or better, then maybe people will...

    What is your gaming history?

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 September 2018

    I started off playing video games once I was old enough to be able to pick up a controller, and quickly developed an interest in them. My earliest gaming experiences were therefore in the mid 80s, maybe '84. I started off on old arcade games, my father's Commodore 64, and the Intellivision, which was a hand-me-down from my father. But what really pushed me towards being a hardcore gamer was...

    70% of Switch Owners in the USA own a PS4 or Xbox One

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 September 2018

    Seems about right. A Nielsen survey from Jan. 2015 indicated that 72% of then-current PS4 & XBO owners owned a Wii in the previous generation, showing that a majority of PS & Xbox users also enjoy playing Nintendo systems. Speaking of multi-console households, according to another Nielsen survey from March 2012, 56% of households in the U.S. owned a 7th-gen console. Given that there was...
