Expecting Switch LTD shipments by June 30th to be below 5m in light of the known sell-through numbers for Japan and the USA.

Originally I expected between 5-5.5m based on the guess that ~750k units are produced per month. Sell-through suggests that it's closer to 600k per month, so shipments might come in even below 2m for the quarter. That would result in less than 4.75m LTD.

Want to be Switch friends Rol? 4464-6245-1713

What games do you own?

Can't you send a friend request to my nickname? It's rolstoppable.

I don't own any online games.

on 16 July 2017

As far as I know it is based on friend code only.

Did you not get interest in ARMS or Splatoon 2?
I tried the demo for Splatoon 2 and it looked like decent fun (never played it on WiiU). ARMS was more of a gamble but I'm enjoying it quite a bit.
I wasn't going to buy MK8 Deluxe after 350 hours on WiiU.

on 16 July 2017

I already have a dozen of friends without any friend codes. I never posted mine, but all of these people sent me requests. Not sure how they did it.

I tried both ARMS and Splatoon 2. Didn't even make use of the full demo time because both games bored me quickly.

on 16 July 2017

Well, we were never WiiU friends so I can't really add you like that and my 3DS account is not the same as the Nintendo account linked one. So my friend code is there if you're interested. :P

Did you ever finish Shadows of Valentia? If so how did you like it? I've been on the fence over whether or not to pick it up for a while now.

Nope, I still haven't finished it yet. I hope that I find the willpower to get around to it eventually and write a review. Projected score: 5/10.

on 02 July 2017

Youch! So it is a lot worse than the North American GBA games then?

on 02 July 2017

Yes, it is a lot worse. It's also worse than Awakening and Shadow Dragon.

It's quite different from other Fire Emblem games. The things it has removed are sorely missed (weapon triangle, being able to carry more than one weapon or item), the things it changed are stupid (EXP and class change system) and the things it adds aren't really positive (dungeon expiditions get old fast and invite limitless encounters which in turn brings game design that more or less requires grinding).

I have trouble to find the motivation to finish the game. Never had that with any other Fire Emblem.

on 02 July 2017

Gah! I suspected that it would be primitive due to being an NES game. But worse than Shadow Dragon? Jeez. A friend was playing it last night, and he said it was really good, but I think he was only as far as the first couple hours.

on 02 July 2017

Pretty much everyone has liked the early going and appreciated the differences. It's from act 3 onwards that people begin to realize that the differences are more annoying than beneficial. I am not sure what people say by act 4 because there has been mostly silence. I don't think that's a good sign though.

You might have to start a guardian program (can't remember the exact term that you used) for goodnightmoon like you did for tbone.

Does GNM have any redeeming qualities, like tbone has, to warrant such effort?

on 21 June 2017

Point taken.

on 21 June 2017

GNM is a fine user.

I wonder if I can find that thread.

on 21 June 2017

It starts between post #90-100.

on 21 June 2017

Looking up what he got banned for this time, I am left wondering how Lawlight keeps getting away. Then again, there was and is a thread that should have been locked in its infancy because it was so terrible, so what the mod team is really missing right now is a Nintendo-leaning moderator who does something.

on 21 June 2017

Why Lawlight isn't perma'ed is beyond me.

on 21 June 2017

Maybe he is an alt account of one of the mods.

on 21 June 2017

You should fish for information to find out that mystery. He's an... odd one.

on 21 June 2017

I can't do more than ask the mod team which I already did. They couldn't provide a respectable answer, so there's nothing else I alone can do.

Thank you for the informative reply about NPD. I didn't know that.

Appreciate your reply.

Switch is beating Wii U, but behind the original Wii.

in Nintendo Discussion 6 hours ago

Wii was a bigger success in its first two fiscal quarters, but that doesn't mean that Switch isn't a success. In shipments Switch sits right between Wii and Wii U through two fiscal quarters, but in sell-through it's a different story. Estimates: Wii - 5.7m Switch - 4.5m Wii U - 2.5m This will be further emphasized after all consoles have finished their third fiscal quarter. As for the...

Lawlight said: So, looking at the numbers in the OP, Nintendo made 58% of their profit from mobile. Looks like that's the segment that they need to invest in more. You are wrong. The number listed for smartphones is revenue for said segment, and it includes IP-related royalty income as well....
