such as? The switch still isn't getting the traditional big third party games and it never will at this point.
Are we still talking about Japan? Because the biggest third party games of 2021 in Japan were:
1. Monster Hunter Rise
2. Momotaro Detentsu
3. Story of Seasons
5. Resident Evil Village
So, four of the biggest five 3rd-party games were on Switch. The full list reveals that 23 of the 30 biggest 3rd-party games were on Switch:
Japan Third Party Top 30 2020 vs 2021— Nocturnal (@Noshten) May 30, 2021
- This will be the first year since 1994 where a Nintendo system will represent over 90% of third party sales in the Japanese market
- Unlikely for the PS4/PS5 to be able to surpass 1 million sales without some major announcements pic.twitter.com/z9p9lQe9w3
Oh, you said traditional. How is that defined? Probably convinient. Like traditional are only games that don't release on Nintendo, or traditional are games that aren't relevant in Japan anymore.
The reality is more like that Playstation just will not get the biggest 3rd-party releases anymore. Because it already doesn't get them. Minecraft is on Playstation, but it didn't got Rise, Momotaro or Story of Seasons. So of the five biggest games of 2021 Playstation gamers missed three, Switch gamers one game. Playstation may become some expensive tech demos that quickly leave the charts (if they hit it in the first place), but we talk about *big* 3rd-party games in Japan. Playstation gamers miss out here on the most important titles.
