Why did Dark Souls get a big jump all of a sudden? It was actually going down in the charts for a few days and then just jumped into the top 10.

It could be because Prime members get a discount when they pre-order (which started this week), but that's available on other systems too. Hard to tell.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

Ninty fans truly big anything ninty makes,even if its absolutly crap.

Why!?  Is it really hard to except this is for kids/parents and that will be quite popular among them!?

I dont think this are buying more hardcore Nintendo fans, but parents definitely. And no, Lobo is not crap. :)

What are you talking about? Labo looks absolutely inspired.

Just because it's not appealing to you, doesnt make it crap. This is for kids. Assuming that's you in the picture, you are not the group they are aiming for.

Secondly, surely you have not tested it yet and wouldnt know if it's crap or not.

It's actually quite unique thinking. It's just not aimed at our demographic and doesn't appeal to us and that's ok. That doesn't make it absolutely...  absolutly crap.

I'm not buying it, that's for sure. Though, this makes me feel like the Switch is truly the successor of the Wii.

Guys, that user has a history of posting blatantly anti - Nintendo (and pro-Sony) things and generally trolling Nintendo fans. It’s getting tiring but Iran not worth arguing back :/

How are you going to try to say this about Nintendo fans considering your history of constantly praising Sony no matter what and trying to downplay everything else? The same could easily be said about you then. 

I've noticed you doing this in plenty of Nintendo threads or Nintendo-related news for a while now. You will try to bring up the PS4 in discussions where it literally has no place, seemingly because you feel insecure about something possibly doing better than it i'm guessing. You will try to make excuses for it, such as the one where you tried to say Switch somehow wasn't a home console all of a sudden. It's like any Nintendo news you just can't help but try to bring up the PS4 to try to downplay it somehow, and in this case now you're calling them fanboys who blindly worship Nintendo stuff just because you don't like a new thing for it.

Those were just a few I could find btw, i'm sure if I kept looking I could find more. 

All i'm saying is don't be a hypocrite, you're just as guilty of doing for Sony what you're accusing Nintendo fans of doing for Nintendo. Don't try to call them fanboys when they could easily say the same about you. This isn't me insulting you either, just calling a spade a spade since it's very hypocritical of you and i've noticed this before with plenty of your past and current posts.

Was gonna postbox something like this, thanks for bringing the receipts :p



Bet with flashfire926: I think switch will win November NPD, and he thinks xbox one will win (if ps4 is victorious, it's a draw). Loser has to state that they lost in the signature for some time.

everything is falling.Is it normal for this month of the year?



I'm curious about the 'scalper' claims some people are making. You DO realize that, unlike the NES and SNES minis., printing and cutting cardboard squares likely doesn't require nearly the amount of manufacturing resources, right? Heck, the announcement video even shows us how it's mostly just a die for stamping the desired design.

Stock isn't nearly as much as an issue with this much easier to produce product, so why would anyone try to scalp something that's going to be readily available at release? It's not like it's sold out on Amazon yet despite both being at the top for half a day.

Liberate Hong Kong, the revolution of our times!

 This is kinda my take.
Kinda disgusted its beating SMO & MHW, DarkSouls... like there are so many better games out there.

People being tricked to try a gimmick, which they ll probably play once or twice and then never again.

This is like 1,2 - Switch.... but worse. Honestly dont see the appeal.

Hmm... it's almost like this wasn't specifically targeted at you... strange.
