As failed as Detroit Become Human, Shadow of the Collossus, Ni No Kuni II, Soul Calibur VI and many others. What a bunch of falures.

Well at least they didn't have to keep developing/supporting multiple games for a single project ...

He's not wrong tho, the guy's definitely not neutral and likes to do this kind of thread (like this: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=236918&page=1 or this: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=238636&page=1 or this: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=235870&page=1 and so on... the pattern is clear and sometimes the truth must be said). One thing is to be a fan of a company, other is to target its "rival" by constantly trying to put it in a bad light).

Btw, here is the source you asked regarding Labo:

https://mynintendonews.com/2018/07/31/nintendo-reveals-software-sales-for-their-biggest-nintendo-switch-titles/

Just to remember that 1st bringing users historics on threads are not considered good behavior. Attacking people due to their preferences also aren't.

Regarding Labo that is SHIPPED which is different than SOLD.

If exposing a clear pattern is considered bad behavior, I couldn't care less honestly. I'm not the one coming here to mostly create threads trying to downplay a company I dislike. And I never attacked someone for their preferences in this thread, this is not my MO, I just stated something very clear that anyone can perceive... lol. You can check on the threads I created here (there are positive ones regarding everything, maybe except Microsoft, lol). It seems like you're the one jumping to conclusions about everyone very quickly.

Btw, that's all I wanted to say as I already expressed my views towards the main point of the thread (Labo exploding), so I'm moving on.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

thismeintiel said: Considering Nintendo was predicting 20M this FY, it's pretty easy to see that they thought that Labo would be a system seller.  They expected it to help them in the early half of the year, until they got to their heavy hitters.  It failed to do that, which is why I think it is safe to assume they will be 2M-3M below that target.

But Nintendo also said, that most of the sales for Switch this year would be concentrated on its Fall lineup, specifically Pokemon Let's Go!, Mario Party, and Smash. If Nintendo really wanted Labo to be a system seller, you'd think they'd run a bigger marketing campaign for it than what they did up to this point. Even when Nintendo talks about Labo, they never discussed it like it was going to be a big system seller. So no, I don't think Nintendo saw Labo as a system seller, rather something that can expand the utility and appeal of the Switch, mainly to parents who's kids already have one. 



No. I haven't seen much marketing from Nintendo regarding the Labo and I think parents would rather just buy their children actual video games instead of Labo. The audience for this thing, is unfortunately really restrictive

it bothers me that there are still people here to hope for failure. Labo is a neat concept, though maybe not for you. The industry needs Nintendo's wacky concepts or it will be the same thing over and over again.

Agreed.  Even if the ideas sometimes suck, it is good to see at least one company that is consistently willing to take risks and try new stuff.

Your post is a little hard to understand. I assume English is not your native tongue, sorry.

I'm not native speaker, but for me it was very clear.

I am a native speaker, and his post seemed quite clear to me as well.



My kids still haven't finished building the robo kit they got in june, so no, it's a dud. I haven't heard any word of mouth about it either.



Explode? No.

How's the sales going for that anyways? Maybe it'll get a boost during the holidays, but not do crazy numbers. I figure it could make for a good gift for kids.

The vehicle kit is at less than 45k sales in Japan and after 3 months is only 60-80% sold through its greatly reduced initial shipment per Famitsu. That is not in any realm of okay when compared to what the variety kit did. That is a humongous collapse in sales.
