Are those billion yen? Otherwise the conversion to $ makes no sense.

It has $ on them so I think they are already in $.

The values within the brackets are dollars, obviously, but the values that literally say 'million yen' behind them are in yen I'd hope.

But then the conversion is not correct. For example:

61,580 million yen = $542NOT $542 million

So there's either some zeros missing on the yen side of things or some generously added ones on the dollar side of things. :P

I think you're misunderstanding.

It's 61,580 million yen... a.k.a 61,580,000,000 yen or 61.58 Billion Yen.

Which is $542 Million.



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)


I am very happy with this numbers!



Switch!!!

Not just ahead, Switch increased it's leading margin despite the 3DS having it's pricecut there

it should be well ahead after this holiday.

AH it is THAT kind of comma! Ok, yeah. Over here we use dots for that kind of thing. I think comma and dot are exactly reversed here. The comma is exclusively used to indicate decimals of any given unit.

Thanks for clearing that up for me!

How do their profits compare to last year and out of interest how do they compare to Sony's?

https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2017/171030_4e.pdf

Gross Profit from April - September 2016 was 61,580 million yen ($541.87 million)
Gross Profit from April - Septebmer 2017 is 143,716 million yen (~$1.264 billion)

Operating Profit from April - September 2016: -5,947 million yen (loss of $52.33 million)
Operating Profit from April - September 2017: 39,961 million yen (profit of $351.63 million)

Basically, they doubled or tripled what they did last year in most areas.

Don't know about Sony though.

Good performance by them/ Thanks for the info. 



Not bad for a system dead on arrival



Pokemon Sun and Moon is showing less legs than VgChartz is showing. Mario kart just reoutsold it lol.

Perhaps VGC is trying to compensate undertracking by adding extra sales each week until they catch up to a reasonable ratio.

Nintendo Switch in Japan (Famitsu): 2018 vs. 2019

PlayStation 4/Xbox One/Nintendo Switch: 2018 vs. 2019
http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=239387

So looking through the data, it seems that ARMS legs will be small, having only sold an extra 130k this quarter(shipment, obviously).While still dissapointing compared to the other games on the Switch, Im still of the opinion that the game did very well for a new IP on a genre thats not as ppular as it once was on a system with not many systems sold as of yet.

Splatoon 2 is the biggest "surprise" here I think.Taking away what it sold in japan(roughly 1.5 million), it did around 2.1 millions around the world, and thats honestly a great number.Yes, the first game also did well overseas, but the second title seems to climbing faster the the first one, and with the Switch still supply constrained, its bound to get a huge bump in the holiday season.

Just as a side note, looking through the Wii U software numbers, I just wished that Nintendo released some damn hard numbers on XCX.Basing on VGC numbers, its very likely it reached 1 million units sold, but goddammit, I wanted a definitive answer.

And now gonna wait for the Rabbids numbers.When is the Ubisoft shareholders meeeting be?
