    I got to say, every platform except for the vita did respectable numbers relatively speaking ofcourse for this NPD.

    I agree. See what happens during the next few dog days of summer.

    The NPD results for April isn't looking too hot exactly.

    PS4 - It only mustered up 200K so it failed my minimum preliminary expectations of how a lead console should be performing. If it had sold 50K more this would be considered decent performance but the platform is partially struggling.

    X1 - Having only 115K sold on it's home doesn't inspire any confidence at all but it still has 8 months left to get a decent image.

    WII U - Doing 50K at it's peak year is pretty sad ...

    Vita - Selling less than 3.4K the whole month is the epitome of pathetic.

    Yeah its looking bad all around. PS4 isn't impressive at all. In fact its disappointing. Xbox is extremely disappointing. Wii U is a joke. Vita is pathetic and more comparable to the Virtual boy than Wii U lol. I called it months ago that Vita was Sony's game gear.

    Console gaming is not doing so well. I saw a post you wrote in regards to the unhealthy condition of console gaming relying on huge budget games. PC gaming and console gaming were always meant to be separate. M$ and -$ony have tried to merge the two. And in doing so helped create what we have now.

    They were always jr PC's to me. But it is what it is. Things have to change and they will. Who will survive, who will stay involved in gaming is an interesting topic to discuss. I honestly don't think gaming as we know it will survive this gen. Gaming is a very volatile business.

    on 17 May 2014

    PC gaming and console gaming are still separate to this day as there's still a reason to buy consoles. The lines may be blurred but there are still clear differentiating factors for both. The only platforms that can be considered inferior PCs are steam machines and we already know about peoples thoughts on that. LOL

    The jury's still out on whether or not PS4 or X1 is an inferior PC ... The big selling point for the HD twins is that not only do they have good accessibility and good third party support but the selling point becomes stronger when coupled with big console only titles such as Destiny or the next rockstar game. One of the reasons why last generation HD twins sold so well is because it was a good package that had some worthwhile special games for it such as Halo, Red Dead Redemption, GTA V, GT5, and some other semi large titles.

    Eagerly awaiting for March 2014 NPD results ... How about you ?

    Tbh, been too busy to even give a damn lol. How are things on your end friend?

    on 31 March 2014

    It's being the same.

    on 31 March 2014

    Thought's on march NPD results ...

    PS4 - Doing fairly modest as it beats the WIIs first march without the hype.

    X1 - It looks OK for now and I guess rol was right about NPD having to make adjustments in february.

    3DS - Meh

    WII U and Vita - Downright pathetic and that especially goes for the Vita.

    If the PS4 can atleast manage 250K for the next month it will have succeeded in passing the preliminary tests.

    It's looks like I had sipped up some Sony kool aid expecting the japanese launch to be much bigger than the results so far. LOLOL

    Gotta be careful with that hype otherwise I'll get burned. It looks like japan is done with consoles for good ... The PS4 won't be restoring that place or any other consoles for this generation and next but it may be premature to judge a bit early. We'll have our full conclusion on whether or not PS4 will be able to ravage what's left of japan by the end of the year.

    LoL. I believe in Anti Hype. How bad was the PS4 launch?

    on 25 February 2014

    It only did 320K. Not the 500K most of us on here were expecting. It will likely do worse in the following weeks since there's not many games out there that the region likes.

    on 25 February 2014

    That's underwhelming. Oh well, the industry is in need of changes. Only the pain of losing money can bring about changes. Welcome to the 8th gen. Where the winner is the loser who loses least! LoL.

    on 25 February 2014

    It looks like these will be the final numbers ...

    PS4: 100 mil
    X1: 40 mil
    WII U: 15 mil

    If your wondering why the PS4 grew from the PS3 that's because sean, rol and I believe that the PS4 will grow at the expense of xbox. As for the WII U it's not of to great start since it's selling half of what gamecube did in it's second January while zorg1000 brought up an interesting point of how the first 18 or so months of the N64 and GC accounted for about 45% of their lifetime sales so if we were to project them on to the WII U you could only imagine how bad it would be.

    on 25 February 2014

    I don't think the growth from Xbox converts will be enough to push it to 100m, too many factors going against it. It may do PS3 numbers. This industry isn't healthy. Xbox looks about right though, Wii U..Wth knows, you could be high balling it lol.

    on 25 February 2014

    Definitely alot of factors going against it such as dev costs and all that other jazz.

    Oh don't just jinx me now on the WII U LOL. I gave it the benefit of doubt much like how zorg1000 did but then again the image is pretty gross by now ...

    < fatslob-:O posted something on Arius Dion's wall:

    So how are the Janurary NPD numbers ?

    From what I've seen, none too good. Wii U is a dud, Vita is pathetic, Xbone isn't flying off shelves, and PS4 looks good only in comparison to the other duds. Oh and 3DS is not performing well either. I feel this gen is going to spell trouble for many console makers and game devs.

    on 15 February 2014

    Pretty much sums up my thoughts. Aside from the PS4 doing decent numbers everything else isn't looking too good. I'm extremely interested in the PS4 numbers in february to see if it's the real deal. This gen is definitely a decline but it doesn't exactly spell doom just yet ...

    on 15 February 2014

    Same here. I know people are quick to compare PS4 to the Wii, but PS4 gets smoked. Also, Macroeconomic conditions are such that $400 will become a steep price to pay. This gen is nothing like gens before, no gen ever is. They are always separate entities.

    on 15 February 2014

    Spoken like a true veteran LOL. I think your age is starting to show.

    Macroeconomic conditions are making it harder for a console to be sold although I still have hope that Destiny will reinvigorate the gaming industry. Afterall Bungie isn't some noob developers and their getting supported by the Goliath known as Activision.

    on 15 February 2014

    LoL, I guess my age is starting to get to me, you young whippersnappers! I hear you, though I hope something does invigorate the industry, but sometimes in order for this to happen, decline must become the norm, and eliminate the excess of vanity from this industry.

    Are you interested in getting the 3DS or already have one ? I know I am.

    Hey, bud. Interested in the 2DS tbh. ALbW I'm hesitant to embrace because Aonuma always has to put in bull shit in Zelda games. But I'm definitely keeping my eyes open.

    On a side I think the Sony fans are getting ahead of themselves atm. Launches are irrelevant. Everything post holidays is what I'm interested in.

    on 17 November 2013

    As long as Aonuma exists you'll most likely always get bullshit in zelda games. I seriously do not want those puzzles. I want zelda game to be some action RPG with alot of choices.

    Sony fans are definitely getting ahead of themselves but as rol has said it's pretty much guaranteed to cannibalize the xbox market. I'm more interested to see how the PS4 will do in Janurary.

    on 17 November 2013

    Sure. But canabalizing a shrinking market isn't that important. Xbox only sells in USA and UK any way. This gen will be ugly.

    on 17 November 2013

    I'm pretty sure xbox also sells in europe too even though it's not as strong as playstation. Sure the market maybe shrinking but at the same time there's still likely over 150 million up for grabs for either of them.

    on 17 November 2013

    We will see. The franchise that saved the HD twins last gen the CoD. That game may go the way of guitar hero. Software sells hardware, don't forget.

    on 17 November 2013

    Don't worry about COD. Activision Blizzard is probably the most impressive company to be able to get a shit ton of money to buy themselves out LOL. They'll probably move on to Destiny or some other AAA title to get another cash cow or hey maybe EA will blow our minds with Battlefield 5. Third party's are no slouch when it comes to making massive games. That's why the X1 and PS4 will MOST definitely destroy the WII U.

    on 17 November 2013

    Third part smash hits are actually quite rare. I'm sure Activision is hoping for destiny to take over the cod mantle but we will see. EA I've less faith in lol. Wii U getting smashed is a safe bet for sure. But not because of third parties support or non support. Wii u is trash because Nintendo keeps making the wrong games and pursuing vanity projects. As Wii showed Nintendo is the only console maker capable of dominating an industry with the right first party software. I'm also of the belief that the Gamepad is a crappy idea and adds too much bs to the console. As malstrom says third party support is overrated.

    on 17 November 2013

    There rare but at the same time their are alot of big publishers out there. I'm pretty sure Destiny will sell atleast 7 million. Hey, EA has been able to get BF3 to sell 16 million which is pretty good in anyones book LOL. Your right about the WII U getting the wrong games and also right about the nintendo being the only ones able to dominate with 1st party games. The gamepad was an awful idea in the first just like the vita LOL.

    Is third party support overrated ? They account for the majority of game sales so far.

    on 17 November 2013

    Lol. Agreed. Actually there aren't too many BIG third party pubs. A tp game only matters if it can sell hardware. Here's another thing to consider; the smash hits are never the hyped games. They always come from left field. So just because Act is pushing for destiny as ubisoft is with WD or the crew? I'm not sure it's safe to assume those will take off. Also EAs cash cow sports games are declining as well. Again we shall see. But as it stands this gen looks really weak to me.

    on 17 November 2013

    This generation will play pretty interestingly for the next decade. I wonder if nintendo is going to attempt a 10 year life span for the WII U ?

    on 17 November 2013

    Lol. Doubtful. I'm giving them 4.5 years tops riding this turd. Unless they are able to do something never done before. But at this point all they seem able to do is ride this out. Who trusts Nintendo any more? I was a huge Nintendo fan. But even I feel repulsed by them and their behavior. I give them Iwata, Miyamoto, Aonuma, and Sakamoto a huge middle finger.

    on 17 November 2013

    Woah there LOL, that hate is pretty malicious but then again I haven't been too impressed with nintendo either. You sound disgusted to the point where you would buy their competitors console just to rub the salt to nintendo LMAO.

    on 17 November 2013

    Lol. I didn't say I wanted them dead. Just the way Miyamoto keeps shoving 2d staples into 3d Mario's is a 'fuck u' to 2d Mario fans. Or the way 2d Mario is half assed in every way but 3d Mario gets the royal treatment. Aonuma continually shoving a feminine cell shaded pipsqueak link down our throats despite showing a bad ass Link in a teaser trailer is a giant f u to long time fans. Or Sakamoto turning Metroid into crappy anime is an f u to long time fans. I'm just giving them what they are giving me lol. I would buy a competitors console but as I've said Sony and M$ aren't my cup of tea. So I'm left causing trouble on forums ; p

    on 17 November 2013

    Your in for a tough ride here on this forum then LOL.

    on 17 November 2013

    No doubt! Haven't you seen already? I'm a loner here. No ones got my back and they are scared to agree with me because they know I've no allegiance. And I'm right Lol. So I get called a malstrom cheerleader or ignored altogether.

    on 17 November 2013

    Khan got your tongue ? LOL

    I wonder if rol would back you up ? I'll agree with you a fair amount of time anyways.

    on 17 November 2013

    Lol. Among others. But yeah Rol, Noname and you are my trio. Lol

    on 17 November 2013

    The 3DS has way more clearity & anti-aliasing & vividness & stunningness then 4K HD TVs have.

    Plus a lot of 3DS games look and play horribly with the 3D OFF, even freeze on you, even during a cinematic for crying out loud. For example Fire Emblem Awakening & Rhythm Thief and just about any other 3DS game for that matter.

    Trust mii, get a 3DS or 3DS XL, you will thank mii.

    As a bonus, the 3D is way better then the cinema. Plus 3D is a million times better then the best draw distance will ever be, for your gaming experience.

    I suggest these 3DS games to get:

    Kid Icarus: Uprising

    Star Fox 64 3D (blows away the crappy original for playability)

    Dillon's Rolling Western

    Rhythm Theif and the Emperor's Treasure

    Harmo Knight

    Bravely Default

    King of Pirates

    Rodea the Sky Soldier

    Luigi"s Mansion Dark Moon

    Mario Kart 7

    Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed (do a Firmware Update before playing this one)

    Resident Evil: Revelations

    Project X Zone

    Kingdom Hearts 3D

    Fire Emblem Awakening

    Ketzel's Corridors

    Mutant Mudds


    Golden Sun 3DS

    Persona Q

    Zone of the Enders 3

    Sonic the Hedgehog (Sega 3D Classics)

    Pokemon 7th Gen

    Zelda A Link Between Worlds

    off the top of my head, thats all I can think of, but theres a lot more I want to recommend.

    I hope that Link helps.

    Another problem with the 2DS, is that the games have the wrong colors to them because the 3D is always off, LOL but 100% true.

    Knowing that your a nintendo fan would you think about considering the other HD triplets for your next main console or are you going to abandon console gaming altogether and head for PC ?

    I'd probably abandon console gaming. I've no interest in Sony or M$ consoles tbh. I would probably get into PC gaming..But most likely? I'd stick to legacy systems like NES/SNES I'm not as much an avid gamer as I was in my teens.

    on 31 October 2013

    All 3 next consoles seem a little underwhelming for me right now seeing as all of them just don't have enough killer apps. I know that theirs call of duty and battlefield but their on last gen systems and plus I have a PC. Whatever console has the mass following like the wii or ps2 then I should probably follow on those. If the xbox one comes out on top then I'll be getting on that but I wonder if someone is going to get extremely mad at my decision. LMAO

    I honestly don't know why nintendo doesn't concentrate on 2D platformers seeing as how they are pretty uncontested. DKCR is proof of this. Do you think there is anymore blue oceans left for nintendo to capture ?

    on 31 October 2013

    Play Batman Arkham City Wii U.

    After that, you will rather buy the Wii U version of multiplatform games. Trust me.

    Try it out.
