Kinda reminds me of Media Create threads in early 2018. PS4 was up over 40% YoY in Q1 thanks to the huge boost Monster Hunter World gave it and some people thought that boost would last the entire year. PS4 ended the year down about 4% YoY.

Switch has a big YoY lead now and has momentum but if they arent able to get major 1st party titles out in the Summer/Fall than that momentum will disappear.

I agree big games will definitely be needed, especially during the holiday season although maybe not so much during summer if the pandemic continues like it is.

A lot of folks will want to stay home for the most part and especially keep their kids away from unnecessary crowds. They'll nee to be entertained somehow and video games can fill that void. As was seen in March and reportedly in April. The pandemic is helping sales to an extent.

Yeah the summer months should be fine without anything major but September onward will need something.

Last year Lite+Link's Awakening+Luigi's Mansion+Ring Fit+Pokemon Sword/Shield all released within a 2 month window in the fall leading to an amazing holiday.

When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.
