Isn't exactly what Konami is doing ? They are still unable to transfer their past sales from PS4 to Switch
Switch being successful on itself isn't a bad thing. Being the ONLY successful console in a market however is. Never said anything about being Nintendo's fault, however is clear third parties aren't recovering anytime soon
I don't necessarily think that the peak sales of the past are the benchmark for viability. I mean, to apply that standard to hardware, is PS failing because they haven't recaptured the sales of the PS2, or the PS3 + PSP? You can do well even if at some point in the past you've done better.
I mean yeah, it would be better if Playstation was more successful in Japan, but I'd have to respectfully disagree about the third party outlook in Japan being quite so gloomy.
Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)
