Long time no talk, hope you are doing fine lad.

Boutros, i have to ask a question.



I see you don't make NPD threads anymore. Instead, many user do a a thread when some news drops, and i think this is kinda... bad, in the sense that there are a lot of interesting numbers / data which are missing. Not only that, but the archivie you made for so many years now is missing.



I think is sad to see that, because what you did for so many years is an amazing job and i don't want this to end.



So i was wondering... 2 things.



01. would you start to do those threads again?

02. If you can't, or you just don't want / are too busy to do it, could i do it for yourself?



I would keep doing all the NPD threads and update it with consistent, i would really really love to do that. To be honest i always wanted to do that xD



Whatever is better than missing all those threads.



Tell me what you prefer, i'm fine with both!

+1

It's a shame you don't do them any more Boutros. If you're not interested in doing it then I'd love for someone like Ryng to take over and keep the series updated.

It's been very useful for making sales adjustments over the years (although less-so nowadays with the lack of leaks and NPDs shift to revenue), and is a great historical resource.

A reply from Boutros would be kinda helpful :p i'm ready to make the thread xD

Hi Boutros. Sorry for disturb, but maybe you can update some old NPD threads?



I see many NPD threads for 2017 are not full of all informations. For example, hardware sales are not update (since the rumor we got of all hardware sales since January 2016 to June 2017).



Also some software, for example Persona 5 at 450k in April including digital ecc.



Thanks :D

I'd find this useful too. I plan on going over NPD data for the last couple of years and making some adjustments, probably in the next month or two.

If the that info was all in the OP of your threads that'd save me so much time!

on 03 January 2018

Oh yeah I absolutely plan on doing that soon-ish!

on 03 January 2018

I have March 2017 NPD, anything I need to update?

As a big fan of Mirror's Edge, what did you think to Catalyst?

Oh hey! Honestly I was really disappointed ;,,; It just didn't feel like a sequel and I'm not sure I enjoyed the open-world structure of the game. I didn't finish it in the end though. What about you?!

on 03 January 2018

I enjoyed it actually. It's not as good as the original but it was still refreshing and fun.

I thought the characters (Plastic was great), dialogue and story were better.

I didn't see the need to lock anything behind RPG progression, but since you unlock the basics quickly that's a minor flaw. Also wasn't keen on the idea of introducing gadgets to the gameplay.

Thought the art style was slightly worse than in the original. And so was the music.

Didn't mind the open world, but by the same token it didn't feel like a particular step forwards. I think they felt the need to make it open world because that's what a lot of gamers and critics called for with the original, but I suspect they didn't play the timetrial challenges, because if they had they'd have realised just how much freedom and how many shortcuts there were in the original's maps. The open world in Catalyst was basically the same as that but with continuity between levels. It didn't feel like making it open world actually added anything in the end.

on 04 January 2018

Yeah that’s how I feel too! But I was thinking of going back to it because the gameplay is still fun. By the way I don’t have a VR headset yet but wouldn’t Mirror’s Edge VR be pretty amazing?! I’d want that to be my first VR experience!

on 04 January 2018

I'd rather have a proper sequel than VR, since I'm not interested in VR atm - certainly not until it's vastly improved.

Doubt either will happen given the sales though :(
