    Global Hardware September 13 to 19 - Mario 3D All-Stars Boosts Switch Sales to Over 500,000

    The_Liquid_Laser said: Norion said: Aww I was hoping the Switch was gonna be up YoY. Still being only 13% down is good and a few months ago there was no way I would expect it to be over 500k this week. Something of note is this should be the last week of the 3DS being above 10k. I also was hoping they would be up YoY.  I actually think if Nintendo shipped more...

    Famitsu Sales: Week 38, 2020 (Sept 14 - Sep 20)

    in Sales Discussion on 24 September 2020

    I was expecting higher for Switch, like 150k or so but maybe stock was more focused towards other regions this week. Seems that only around a dozen weeks will be down this year which is very good. ...

    Nintendo E3 2020

    Some of this could be in a September direct in this alternate time line but even with that it would likely be a good E3 direct. ...

    Xbox One X sales up 747%..... whoops.

    in Microsoft Discussion on 22 September 2020

    They really should've called the Xbox One Xbox 4. It would've gave them number parity with Playstation and since it was following the Xbox 360 it would've felt natural. If that happened we'd be on Xbox 5 now and there would be zero confusion. Numbers are lame but they don't have any risk. For the Wii U comparison that won't be much of an issue here since the One X is discontinued so these are the...

    Do you still miss the E3 in 2020?

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 September 2020

    Yep. These digital events don't compare to E3 presentations. For example Ubisoft did fun shows but these couple Ubisoft forward events have been mostly whatever. It was much better getting a ton of announcements in a few day span than getting stuff trickled out over several months and no longer seeing crowds go crazy with hype will be unfortunate. Stuff like reactions to Twilight Princess and FF7...

    VGC users I can't barely tolerate

    Xbox Game Pass has reached over 15 million subscribers.

    in Microsoft Discussion on 21 September 2020

    RolStoppable said: Norion said: At this rate I could see the number of subscribers eventually becoming higher than the number of people using Xbox consoles. It could maybe reach 100 million this decade. That sort of statement only seems impressive until you remember the sheer amount of devices that have access to Game Pass subs. It will eventually have far more...

    Xbox acquires Bethesda

    in Microsoft Discussion on 21 September 2020

    If this means they're gonna heavily invest in gaming now then the money difference alone could maybe make them beat the PS5 or at least make things similar to gen 7. Microsoft is a far bigger company than Sony so if they actually put some serious effort into this they'll likely have the advantage long term. ...

    Old Analyst Prediction table for the 7th Generation. PS3/360/NRV (Wii)

    in Gaming Discussion on 21 September 2020

    The_Liquid_Laser said: Norion said: The difference is the gen 7 predictions were made before Sony screwed up while now there isn't really any opportunity left for them to screw up and that combined with the PS5 getting positive reception and more attention than the Series X/S is strong evidence I think for gen 9 to be similar but with the PS5 maybe doing somewhat worse and the...

    Xbox acquires Bethesda

    in Microsoft Discussion on 21 September 2020

    I dislike this sort of thing. While it is much preferable for Microsoft to acquire stuff than Sony or Nintendo since in the first case the games will still come to PC it's still a shame that the number of people able to experience Bethesda's games could decrease by a lot if Microsoft does make them Xbox and PC only and this will likely make Sony acquire something in retaliation which could make...

    List of Next-Gen file sizes

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 September 2020

    Pemalite said: Norion said: Smash Ultimate is a great example, over 800 tracks containing over 28 hours of music but the file size is only around 13GB and I've never heard people complaining about the audio quality. Nintendo is very good at compression it seems which makes sense due to them working with lower limits. Also developers should let people choose to not download...

    PS5 Reveal breaks nearly all social media records (Twitch, Youtube streaming, Youtube, Instagram, Twitter)

It's specifically his comment on Playstation's metrics being in another league compared to Nintendo's that stuck out to me and made me wonder how predictive these metrics are exactly. I truly don't know how predictive they are. Well, Mario direct has...

    IcaroRibeiro said: I'm sure there isn't even 200 million owners of Switch, XBONE and PS4 yetFor PS5 alone get this much they will need a massive increase number of console gamers. USA, Japan and Europe are all very saturated markets and LATAM is just not a big market due to economical reasons So if they want such a big increase on console gamers they will need to somehow convince chinese...
