Sonic Forces did better first week than Sonic Boom, Sonic Lost World, Sonic Colours... in fact it's probably the best opening week for a Sonic game since GBA / GC days outside of Mario & Sonic.

This can't be true... right? :S

Sonic was never real big in Japan, even during the franchises peak in the Genesis era it never pulled off big numbers there.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

The trio bomba Musô adds more concern regarding 3rd parties on Switch

What are you talking about?

Orochi Warriors U3, Samurai Warriors Sanada & Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires were released on Switch on that week but all 3 failed to chart in MC. We shall see their dismal sales in famitsu or Dengeki.

3 old late ports came out on switch. They bombed badly and he is going to claim that third party support should only be on sony platforms.

Seems like lately he is on a crusade to tell everyone that third party games are doing poorly on the Nintendo Switch, ignoring everything that doesn't fit his pre-determined view.

3rd parties ignoring switch would be unfortunate. I brought up some titles that did better on Switch than the other platforms not long ago as far as Amazon is concerned.

Notice how you didnt mention sonic forces? A game where it had a simultaneous ps4/nsw release? A 55/45 split?

 

Yeah go and pick the only games that fit your narrative. Your anti nintendo posting gets more obvious with every attempt

The mega drive got its ass kicled by super famicom and the PC engine (turbographics 16). It was a distant third.

How dominant was nintendo? When yamauchi told the public to wait cause the snes was coming out soon, mega drive sales took a HUGE nosedive.

Sorry guys, I'm late because Gematsu management has come to fight me on the other side.
                           

Sounds like they had an issue with your conclusion, and that they had an issue over your perceived lack of care over context, in this scenario.

And, I'm speaking for myself here, I view your comments on Gematsu as playing a small but noticeable role in drawing views and attention to their articles.

 

Edit: re: "and that they had an issue over the perceived lack of care cover context, in this scenario"

the c hanges to your, and cover changes to over

Actually very possible. Now that i think about it do we kno what the highest selling hw weeks in japan are? (Of all time). I think 3ds had a 480k week

DS had a 600k+ week.

603k according to VGC http://www.vgchartz.com/weekly/38711/Japan/
604k according to neogaf http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=77998 (not listed in OP, so you'll have to dig a bit for it)

Yeah and both DS and 3DS had 1.5m+ December. I even think the DS went close to 2 million once. Switch should get to the 1million but maybe needs another big release to get close to 1.5m+

I thinks it's safe to say that Switch will be pass 3m in Japan at end of this year.
