1st paragraph: that's why it is a disappointment. Ninty failed to continue the momentum. They bank on Labo and failed. It's not hard for someone to be disappointed and I see where are they coming from.
2nd: This is Pokemon and Japan. Used market is very big in Japan. It might affect the future shipments and leg of this game so the following weeks are very crucial. Splatoon 2 is one perfect example that nullifies your argument about install base. FF XIII on PS3, Sun and Moon.
What I can agree you with are: The bad rep of the game and maybe the price point because I am willing to bet that a Gen 8 will sell well on install base of 5M. It will not be limited by 5M install base it will be limited by stocks of NSW that's available on the market. Also stop being a little bit sensitive. I never said it wasn't good. I just added context on the discussion for Pokemon and all this revenue talk. I already had this discussion already. I am very aware but the shipments for it. Are people aware of it?
3rd: I will just ignore this. I don't know what does it have to do with what I have said. Unless you are speaking in general.
For your first point: I’m just giving context since we’re sorta seeing this situation from different perspectives. Of course, Nintendo’s are most important since it’s their console being discussed. I get someone can be disappointed, but I’m just saying what I said for what it’s worth.
For your second point, I have no idea about what’s been going on in the used gaming market in Japan. You got me with Splatoon 2 and other examples.
For your third point, my bad if I came off as sensitive as I didn’t intend to. I just think it’s weird that people are saying “flop” for a Pokemon mainline game that had just as much going against it as much as it had going for it. Again, as crazy as Pokémon is WW, some were probably not sure about Let’s Go releasing at $60. I mean one of our users was pretty vocal about Let’s Go being low in value at $60. Of course it doesn’t matter since Pokemon Let’s Go is already selling millions, but we love context here.
For your last statement, yea it’s a bit general. Just saying that a steady/slow second year doesn’t necessarily translate into anything for the future.
