Wasn't 2012 not a bad year since it launched around xmas? anyways enough of this xD

It launched in November throughout the world, with the exception of Japan where it launched in December. Even with it launching during the holidays, sales were still well under expectations.

But yeah, this is extremely off topic now.

they dont have the appeal enough to warrant a wide variety of figures imo

and? There are several amiibos that have little brand appeal, but that doesn't stop fans from collecting all of the line.

The key aspect to remember is that there has to be something to pull the initial weight. The less known figurines from the various amiibo waves benefited from the brand power of the most popular IPs, plus the appeal of the Super Smash Bros. series itself. So the argument will inevitably lead back to PSABR and that doesn't make a good case for Sony.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I agree that a new Playstation Battle Royale should come out but not the amiibo bull$

If this type of thing were to happen, they'd launch Sony IPs alongside some of their better known characters (Cloud, Crash, Snake, etc.) to pull that initial weight. At least, that's the only feasible way in my mind. That and some actually worthwhile game interaction (which is debateable with the amiibos).

We all know why amiibos sell well its because nintendo made a hyp for them by limiting the production, sony can do the same

There aren't many opinions on it, but apparently most people are against it rather than for it, Sony and Xbox fans.

The way you represented it wasnt gonna work because you pulled out natan drake instead of kids friendly ips. Also its mostly nintendo people who voted no there



Umm no that sounds like an awful idea. This whole NFC thing is going to come crashing down just like the music genre and fitness genre. It's only a matter of time with so many companies joining in, the market is going to get saturated. You've already got Activision, Disney, and Nintendo in the market. Now Warner Bros is joining in with fucking LEGOS which are going to destroy anything Disney or Nintendo puts out because of how damn popular those things are with kids.



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Well, of course. It's that easy.

The thread talks about NFC as a whole, from Skylanders to Infinity and then to Amiibo. The topic was about Sony or MS making their own figures to try their own open world game, or unlockable content. Nathen Drake was one example I used for a poll. People could have made other suggestions. I didn`t limit it to one character or anything.

 

Also, amiibo sell well because people want their favorite characters and the figurines look cool. I don`t think Nintendo hyping the figures is the only reason they sell so well...

I don't know how to say this nicely. Sony shouldn't do this because it would end badly for them. It would feel like another me too move and most gamers wouldn't buy it. Besides it wouldn't get the kids attention because their IPs don't have the appeal that the others do.
