I wonder how many active users they will have in the winter time :P.

It's Winter only on one half of the world

That´s a really good point :).

But it's on the half that has 88% of the worlds population.



I hopped off a long time ago. It just got way to boring way too fast for the amouny of time it takes to keep up with people.

Easy to misread, but it's actually referring to the popularity of the search terms 'augmented reality' and not Pokémon GO.

I noticed. But the whole metric is ridiculous. People only search for something once. How does that reflect players retention?

It doesn't, but it shows there's increased interested in augmented reality. It's an interesting effect from just a single game.



Edit: NVM misunderstood a post.



Predictions (Made July 2019)

LTD: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m       2019 : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m        2020: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)


Around the Network

Brings back memories of the Wii when people jumped on everything that might signal a sudden end of the popularity.



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

Also people have no idea what fad curve looks like. This could very much be a fad, but that isn't what a fad curve looks like.

Well, it's probably following the same pattern as any fad.  Kids and teenagers all start playing or getting into something.  Then, they start to realize that 30+ year old adults are starting to talk about it a lot and play it themselves, then it stops being cool.  This same thing will continue til the end of time.  Though, I do expect Nintendo's stock may drop some more after this announcement.

Wait? Isn't this the reason why kids/teenagers start following trends? Because stuffs that adult people do are considered "cool" in their eyes? Damn! It's really hard for me to follow this logic of what exactly is to be "coool".

 

OT: only 30M daily users active now? The fad is real!



 

 

We reap what we sow

This is how the mobile market works, there's still a significant portion of users left. A more interesting result would be seeing how many daily users they have six months from now.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

Yes, there will be a decline, but as long as Nintendo supports it with enough content, it should retain a healthy core base. This is to be expected, and it might pave the way for more quality Nintendo online apps. They're adapting their business model to fit certain trends. I just hope they don't trade substance in for the flavor of the day.
