Fee Fi Fo Fum, I smell the blood of an alt in here

Yeah you're delusional. You questioned if Sony thinks Persona is important to them, and I evidently showed a SIE DIRECTOR saying it's important to Playstation.

Keep whining about Persona being exclusive to Playstation, saying it's absurd its absurd, while Persona and a dozen other Japanese games continue being PS exclusive as its business as usual.

Yeah, same as SMT.

"dozen other Japanese games continue being PS exclusive", nowadays, they at least come to pc too

SMTV has chances to come to PS4, unless Nintendo also has a deal. There are still a few that don't. 

Yakuza 7
Judgement
Persona 5, Dancing, Royal
Catherine FB
13 Sentinels
Dragons Crown

Nights of Azure
Idolmaster

FF Disisidia

GB Versus, ReLink

More importantly, most of these do not come out on other platforms like XBX or SW. If we were to account for PC, XBX would have 0 exclusives, and SW would have 0 third party exclusives.

Dengeki shared some insight about PS4/NSW multiplatform games

Week 1 - Nintendo Switch: 42.8% / PlayStation 4: 57.2%
LTD - Nintendo Switch: 55.6% / PlayStation 4: 44.4%

Those are total sales of the 78 multiplat titles.

That's very interesting. PS starts out stronger but fades quicker and the percentages basically reverse for LTD.

Bear in mind they are combining all releases. A better indicator would have been simply counting how many titles did better on each platform. 



I'd be really concerned about some people's mental health if Persona 5 were ported to Switch.

Eventually Switch's install base advantage and active userbase outsells the PS4 titles, but it is a bit of a small margin considering right now it is:

HW- Nintendo Switch: 58%/ Playstation 4: 42%

If people expect Switch to sell 25m and PS4 10m then it will be:

LTD- Nintendo Switch: 71%/ Playstation 4: 29%

So eventually multiplatform games on Switch should double the sales of PS4 multiplatform games. This is all discounting the fact that digital games exist, which PS4 generally has the advantage there too...

It wouldn't "compromise" anything. They'd simply add some extra income from Switch while losing absolutely nothing.

Overwatch released in 2015, Switch port in 2019. Wonderful 101 realeased in 2013, Switch, PC and PS4 port in 2020. It could be in a similar scenario as those. I feel like Atlus is holding themselves back with all these exclusives. Why not just be available on Nintendo, Sony and Pc systems. 

You guys using logic and common sense to this discussion... Smh. Stop being such port beggers

Nothing wrong with wanting a game on a device that allows to be played on TV and on the go. Especially if its from a third party company and how its not a demanding game (graphic wise). Switch is just about to hit 3 years old. It probably still got 3+ years left.

That is very interesting. Japanese third parties really are being quite foolish by not taking supporting the Switch more seriously, they could be making so much more off its userbase than they are now.

Many would rather go bankrupt than be professional and support nintendo. And those are quickly becoming the only 2 option for most japanese developers.

If SMTV come to ps4, then P5R must come to Switch in exchange, and Switch also have Night of Azure 2



Switch's worst week of 2020 so far does little damage to its YTD advantage, but it will get worse before it gets better again.

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

Its gonna be really interesting to see what happens to the Japanese gaming industry once the PS5 launches, I get the feeling the split between Switch and PS5 multiplats are going to be in favor for the Switch, especially if the PS5 continues the downward trend Playstation has been facing in Japan.
