As i said..., all of those games i can play it right now, whenever i want. Most of them have or are coming even way later than on PS4 or PC, and to be honest..., they are not interesting to me at all. I already told you what games i like. 

You saying Switch doesn't lack anything that makes a platform great is completely subjective. It's completely lacking for me, and i'm pretty sure for a lot of people, but hey, I was just trying to explain my point of view which is just that, a point of view. You can try to understand it or not.

I'm pretty sure Nintendo software will always sell more or less great. And i'm pretty sure i will still not buy a console like this from Nintendo. And because of people like me Switch won't reach the success a Nintendo home console could reach.......in my opinion, of course.

Again you're using subjectivity to argue objective factors just because they don't appeal to you it doesn't discount them them releasing later doesn't change that either which is made up with by the fact they'll be portable which is a significant feature whether you use it or not.

What I said is not subjective as what makes a great platform? Good product and selection of games and Switch ticks both these boxes objectively it's not about appealing solely to you it's about being in general, I know your point of view problem is your point of view uses a lot of subjective notions while objectively things can say otherwise this is why the person who replied to you made their post as this is not a topic of individual point of views we're looking at objective factors.

Nintendo isn't out trying to appeal to you because you were never going to be interested to begin with, what you want is not for them to try and appeal to you but for them to become another platform holder entirely which will never work Switch will reach the success a home console could reach because they not trying to go after you but instead going after everyone else this is highlighted by the fact that it is outselling all prior Nintendo consoles with the SNES going to be passed by the end of this fiscal year.

Too many people to answer..., so i'll give just one.

I was giving my own opinion about why i don't like Nintendo's direction so of course i was subjective, i was trying to be completely subjective because that was the point. There's not absolute reasonality as to why you prefer a kind of game or a kind of console. It's completely subjective.To everyone that likes it, congratulations. For me, not so much, and if for me the console doesn't appeal me enough, then there's automatically a reason to improve its appeal.

All of this came from my comment about how more than half the sales of Switch come from its 12-15 best selling games, meaning all the other hundreds games on the console represent the other half. I really don't think any 3rd party game has surpassed 2M sold on Switch, and there must not be too much games that have sold 1M or more either. It's not bad..., but it's not great either, or a "great story".

As for Nintendo games being the best selling games on PS4 if they launched there too ...., they would sell well of course, but not that well as on a Switch. PS4 consumers don't buy double the games compared to Switch consumers. People on average buy 10 games per console, when you have so much variety to play, the share of games that people buy spreads too. If PS4 owners buy their FIFA, COD, GTA, then there's less space for the others. That's why Nintendo doesn't want 3rd party being too powerful on their consoles, it's an ecosystem that benefits their gaming lineup. Like someone said, people prefer to play its COD, FIFA, GTA on PS/XB and their Nintendo games on their exclusive hardware. They are both complementary.

I guess i will have to accept i will never buy a Nintendo console then, it seems i'm not the target audience....Like i said, a shame, because I do like Zelda, Mario, Donkey Kong, Pokemon, Metroid....If only some 3rd party support was better, i would already bought one. For example i was playing right now Nier Automata and i find no reason why this game is not on a Switch, or Persona 5 either. I loved playing P4 Golden on PSV way more than P5 on a big TV. It would have been great on that console.

Maybe some time in the future Nintendo will copy Microsoft and make a Nintendo Pass of sorts, so i will be able to play their games without paying the hardware and everyone will be happy......

That's enough for today. I was just trying to answer some direct questions, but it's pretty obvious this has run its course, so thanks to all and good night.



Do VGC plan to update their software numbers with these official numbers? Some games are 4-5 million behind now.

Awesome.  Was just curious because it seemed like the previous quarter numbers were not added.

As of now Nintendo's page has not updated its shipments. Still as of March 30,2019. They usually update it pretty quickly.


Edit* I think there was just something wrong with my computer. Ooopsie.

Including the Wii U version, BOTW is now over 15 million.

Absolute monster, goes to show you should never judge a game's sales potential only by the performance of its predecessors, people said BOTW wouldn't pass 10 million cos no Zelda ever had, and look at it now.

Splatoon 2 inching ever closing to that 10 million mark, which I predicted it would hit back in mid-2017 and a lot of folks said I was nuts. (Which I am, but that doesn't mean I'm wrong)

Imagine trying to tell people back in early 2015 that the IP would become this huge, back when many were saying it was a bomb in the making, and that according to the ancient proverb it was going to "sell on par with The Wonderful 101".

I'm not sure at 100% but didn't someone called it back then ? ( I don't remember well, the guy was always predicting crazy numbers)

Seems like an entire planet will eat crows now :3

Also Mario Kart 8 is over 25 million when adding the Wii U version.

New Super Mario Bros U is also inching closer to the Wii U version, 4.10m vs 5.79m, and will comfortably pass it by the end of the year.

Every time someone mentions how much people thought Splatoon would bomb, I remember this thread reply someone scrounged up from neogaf (I forget from where).
