    Switch overtakes total PS4 sales in Japan, in less than half the time

    in Sales Discussion 5 days ago

    curl-6 said: Farsala said: Portability is clearly the only factor that Vita had as much sales as it did. Put it this way if the PS Vita was a  home console it would have sold as much as PSTV. This isn't about the Vita's theoretical sales in some parallel universe though. It's about the Switch's sales in real life. To claim they are solely due to portability is simply...

    Switch overtakes total PS4 sales in Japan, in less than half the time

    in Sales Discussion 5 days ago

    curl-6 said: Farsala said: The Vita sold around 70% of PS4 in Japan, which is insane compared to NA and Europe at ~8% and ~13% respectively. (VGC numbers) Both are near the end of their life so I use current figures. To put this more into perspective: After 9 quarters, the Switch has sold around 71% of 3DS in Japan, NA and Others at 136% and 134%. (Nintendo shipments) So we can...

It's a factor, but to act as if it's the only reason is just silly. The Vita sold around 70% of PS4 in Japan, which is insane compared to NA and Europe at ~8%...

    Farsala said: I don't see a problem bumping it every game unless they are very short games, and you are knocking one out every day lol.I finished KH Chain of Memories and now I am on KH2. I sadly won't finish before KH3 is out, and I have like 3 more games before it. I am fairly patient though, so it isn't a huge issue. The bigger issue is I will be working full time soon, and probably will...

    In defence of piracy

    in General Discussion on 14 May 2019

    Pirating games? no Movies? no Songs? no. The only thing I "pirate" is anime, and even then I try to use as many legal services as possible first, and I still feel bad about it at times. Sometimes things just aren't available or convenient, so if people pirate for those reasons they have my sympathy but not my regret. ...

And of course the games are very far away. Games being far away usually didn't stop heavy hitters, especially ones like Fire Emblem.

    HylianSwordsman said: If Japan is excited about Switch's summer as I am, you wouldn't know it from looking at COMG's preorders. SMM2 should be at the top of the chart by now. Like I get that it hasn't been detailed at E3 yet, but you'd think hype would be through the roof just off of what was revealed so far. Japan was huge on SMM1. And then there's Fire Emblem. Does anyone have any...

Significantly below, too, since Wii did almost 26m in 2009 FY. Unless you mean the Wii was sabotaged somehow, which is eh... Besides, the 3DS was an unique slow burner as far as modern Nintendo hardware goes. It sold more than a third of its...
