Going after the videogame market when it moves more and more to digital just won't and can't work.Instead, they should focus on all the stuff you can't get digitally: promotion material, feelies, merch, and so on. Additionally, I would suggest them turning their shops more into retrogaming stores where you can get old...

    My first Final Fantasy experience!

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 September 2019

    Actually, I recommend IV, VI and VII before IX. The latter has some very mild callbacks since the game was a love letter to the first eight games of the series. It's a bit more fun when you recognize them. ...

    As far as the August update goes, really quiet month.  That's gonna change in September though.  Pretty much nothing notable on the games list - Collection of Mana was the biggest mover at +3 - but we are coming close to 1000 distinct entries on the chart.   That's not necessarily unique games though, as some compilation packs are listed separate from their constituent...

    Famitsu Sales: Week 33, 2019 (August 12th - August 18th) - Aftermath

    in Sales Discussion on 22 August 2019

    Yep. We're not going to have a realistic look at how FE is actually doing in Japan until the Q2 financial update. It's obvious that the high physical price and the voucher program have had a major effect on the retail sales. How much of one, we won't know until late October. Also, I don't trust Superdata's actual numbers at all, but the general conclusion - digital sales are very high - is...

    COMG! Japan Pre-order Chart Thread - Daily updates!

    in Sales Discussion on 15 August 2019

    In terms of Pokemon, one of the challenges right now is that we don't know how much of an impact the digital vouchers are having on these games. The vast gulf between physical sales and overall shipments for SMM2 suggests that it is significant. Odds are high that Fire Emblem is also being dramatically impacted. Between that and the ever increasing unreliability of COMGNet as a proxy for the...

    Can Nintendo clear its FY2019 forecast in only 3 quarters ?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 August 2019

    Very unlikely. Investors and regulators would certainly be interested if Nintendo dramatically underestimated its forecasts, and not in a good way. I suspect that the Lite is going to shift the dynamics rather than shift more units. I'm betting we'll see a couple million more shipments for Q2 because of the Lite launch, but it's also going to eat into regular Switch sales. That means...
