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

Sony results for the quarter arent out until tomorrow

Not the comparsion is remotely meaningful (even if you just compare gaming).  They have very different business models.



I'm not really here!

Hope they also give numbers.

I wanna know what UC4, HZD, Crash are at, and Hardware totals.

That's higher than I predicted for the end of September as I had it at 7m or just under, it's outsold the Wii U's 2 year total and may outsell it it completely before March. Being the end of October now and SMO's release Switch is obviously pass 8m now heading to 9m.

BOTW with the Wii U version (2m according to this site) is at 6.7m which is 1m behind OOT's total and 2m behind TP's Total and all of this is in 7 months of NS' launch and 3.3m shy of the 10m mark which I'm sure it can hit LT.

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?

One thing to note about ARMS is that it launched right at the end of the quarter so a large part of that initial big shipment was likely meant to be sold in July/Aug.

 

Ill wait to judge its legs, i think it will pass 2 million comfortably.

Where does it say Wii U BotW sold 2m? If you're talking VGC it's at 1.1m here now. I can't find Nintendo's numbers on this anywhere, so I'm either missing something or you just got it wrong really. Still, I recall the game being at 1.08m or something way back in April I think, so probably Switch+Wii U is around or past 6m by now, which is pretty impressive. 10m for both versions seems very likely at this point.

Misread the number it's 1.1m although that's the last time it was tracked back in April for reference they have WWHD at 1.9m on VGC while the official numbers are at 2.3m so it's fair to say it's possible it's possibly sold a bit more since then.



boy these numbers are weak. considering this thing is a 3ds-wii hybrid that got all their heavy hitting nostalgia ips around and shortly after lauch + a purposly created shortage to make it seem this thing is the next must have for every kiddo out there, 8 millon shipped with christmas around the corners is so meh.

Describes your trolling attempt very well.

Switch outselling Wii U's LTD total within a year is pretty much a lock now! Selling 6 million more in 4 months that include the holidays should be easy, provided Nintendo has enough Switches available.
