Nintendo Switch accomplishes the sweep in the USA in 2019

in Sales Discussion, last active on on 10 January 2020

Nintendo Switch has won each of the 12 NPD months in the USA in 2019 and therefore was unsurprisingly the best-selling console of the year. Such a sweep - winning every single month of the year - is no easy feat. Will Nintendo Switch pull it off in 2020 again? The road to the sweep is manageable enough. The aging Sony and Microsoft consoles are a long shot to put up a fight and Switch is...

Nintendo of America: "Nintendo Switch achieves its best sales week ever in the U.S."

in Sales Discussion, last active on on 10 December 2019

Businesswire has posted a press release that was sent to media outlets by Nintendo of America. All figures are sell-through, but pay attention whether they denote U.S. or Americas; the former are sales in the USA alone, the latter are sales across the entirety of North and South America. Because all figures are based on Nintendo's internal data, the software numbers include digital sales. Over...

Here's the "Switch Pro" you've been waiting for. It's like the rumor suggested, a modest upgrade and not a Pro at all. https://www.nintendo.com/switch/tech-specs/ Looks exactly like the original Switch and the only noteworthy improvement, according to Nintendo's website, is the battery life (see image below). The original Switch SKU can be expected to be phased out in favor of this look-alike....

For those who've paid attention to Nintendo's paid DLC practices that started in 2012 with Fire Emblem's Awakening on the 3DS - the first Nintendo game to feature paid DLC - gamers were treated to a mixed bag, because Nintendo tried various approaches, including: 1. One individual level for a small price. (Fire Emblem series)2. Multiple levels for a small price.(New Super Mario Bros. 2, Pikmin...

My e-mail account got hacked, received blackmail and I have only two days to pay up!

in General Discussion, last active on on 16 May 2019

Today I noticed that one of my e-mail accounts got hacked. There was a weird e-mail where my account was both the sender and recipient, and it started with the hacker pointing that fact out as proof of his success. He also told me that it would be pointless to contact the provider of the e-mail service or the police, because he has covered his tracks so well that they wouldn't be able to find...

Who actually buys DLC for Atelier games?

Today I checked the eShop and saw that Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland was added to the Coming Soon section. (The game will release on May 24th for Switch and PS4... and probably PC, but who cares.) Aside from the standard edition for €60, there was also a set offered for €75. Said set includes DLC that, if bought individually, would cost €28.50. Saving €13.50 may sound...

Is Nintendo Switch really a success?

in Sales Discussion, last active on on 09 October 2018

Nintendo Switch has been on the market for a full 18 months by now. The launch hype is gone and the dust has settled, so this is a good time to recap the console's achievements or lack thereof. While the general consensus is that Switch is selling well and successful, such a conclusion doesn't hold up under scrutiny. It's not all sunshine and rainbows in Nintendo land and we have to be honest...
