By that definition, Octopath Traveller is a first party title.

It's obviously more likely that Octopath Traveller ends up in a Sony/Microsoft console than MARIO+Rabbids. That's not even up to discussion.

Perhaps.  But first and third party are not defined by what a person imagines might hypothetically occur at some undetermined point in the future.   And console exclusivity does not define first/third party either - which was the point of my comment.

M+R is, by definition, a third party game.

Well, not quite. It was developed and published by Ubisoft, but you can't ignore that it is an IP collaboration, so it cannot be entirely third party. There are similar cases like Fire Emblem Warriors and Hyrule Warriors that were developed and published by Koei. M+R is published by Nintendo in Japan, FEW and HW are published by Nintendo in America and Europe.

You are looking at a combination of first and third party here and it's clear that none of the three games mentioned above can't go anywhere without Nintendo's consent.

If we evaluated a different, yet still similar case, what would you say whose game it is? The example I am talking about is Project X-Zone which is a collaboration between Namco, Sega and Capcom. Is it a Namco game? A Sega game? Or a Capcom game?



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

I wanted to ask you how many third party games you own, but I already saw your post in the Third Party Society. 8 third party games; 1 physical, 7 digital.

I need the third party numbers to calculate the percentage of first party games in people's game collections, that's why this thread isn't and cannot be 100% exclusive to first party software. I do not track which third party games people bought, so that's something you still have to post about in the Third Party Society thread.

Yes, Splatoon 2 was already in your numbers.

The spreadsheet is public, so anyone can check at any time of the day if their statlines are correct and up to date. If something is missing or wrong, you and everyone else is welcome to point it out in this thread.

I don't think anyone is ignoring the fact that Nintendo licensed some of its IP to Ubisoft and Koei Tecmo for those games.  But it doesn't change the fact that they were created,  developed and published by third parties.   Now, that being said, I'm arguing a real world definition.  The "Switch Gamers Club" is your concept, and you are free to use a personal definition that is not in wide use if you so choose.   Which is why I listed those games per your rules.

Nintendo obviously had creative input in all of those games. M+R and the like aren't like Rayman Legends with Mario and Luigi costumes for Rayman and Globox.

In the real world there will be no third party publisher who considers M+R and the like as third party games, i.e. any sort of indicator how well third party games sell on Switch.

You didn't answer whose game Project X-Zone is.
