    Thoughts on 69.99$ games for Next Gen Consoles?

    in Gaming Discussion on 04 July 2020

    I'd be fine with this change if games didn't usually also have microtransactions and whatnot. It effectively means that many games are already sold at over $60, regardless of teh up front cost. And I really doubt that any publisher will remove those just because $70 becomes the new default. ...

    How important are first party games to a console?

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 July 2020

    Let's look at the Xbox and PlayStation. The 360 had a bunch of top-selling exclusives, and 6 of its Top 20 selling games are exclusive games. The X1 only has 4 exclusives in its Top 20, and they didn't sell as well in comparison. That, as much as the PlayStation's successes, is why the X1 is doing worse than the 360 did. The PS3 and PS4 have a similar number of high-selling exclusives, but the...

    I really enjoyed reading your article and even talked about it with my roommate, but I don't really have much to add. I guess maybe you could have devoted a bit of space to the importance of sequels and ongoing series over the past few decades, seeing how you bring them up towards the end, but that could easily be another article in itself. ...

    Before The Switch Launched, What was your sales prediction for the Switch?

    in Sales Discussion on 08 June 2020

    Around 60 to 80 million, similar to the 3DS. On one hand, I was confident that a platform like the Switch would attract some of the best support from Nintendo's previous systems. Enough DS and 3DS XL's had been sold to convince me that an oversized handheld was not a major issue, and I was confident that Nintendo's mainstay series on consoles would sell in line with previous entries. My...

    Why Sonys Play Station is the standard for home consoles since 1994 ?

    in Sales Discussion on 08 June 2020

    They made a lot of good decisions at the key point where the market was set to expand and the competition was messing things up for themselves. A large part of their success ever since is inertia from their successes in the mid-90's. ...

    Apparently tech journalist Zenji Nishikawa has a revolutionary scoop; claims SEGA has a major announcement for their 60th anniversary. It is a Tech related announcement

    in Gaming Discussion on 03 June 2020

    Well, here it is. The Game Gear Micro, a $50 tiny Game Gear with a one inch(!) screen, preloaded with 4 games, for the low price of $50. There are four different colors (Black, Blue, Yellow, Red), each with their own unique set of four games. Coming this October! Apparently my "Dreamcast Classic" guess was more than this announcement could live up to. EDIT: Apparently the actual announcement...

    Why Trials of Mana Remake didnt make any noise, unlike FF7 Remake.

    in Gaming Discussion on 01 June 2020

    Part of it is because Trials of Mana never left Japan, whereas FF7 came to the West within a year of its release. Part of it is that the entire Mana series has sold significantly less than the original release of Final Fantasy VII alone. Part of it is that FF7 has a legendary status worldwide, whereas the only Mana game with a strong reputation is Secret of Mana, and even that game lives in the...

    Sales vs. MetaScore: A Study using the Xbox 360

    in Microsoft Discussion on 20 May 2020

    It is commonly argued what the relationship between a game's sales and critical reception is. So in order to hopefully gain some insight on the matter, I compiled a list of Xbox 360 games that sold 200 thousand or more copies and look up all their Metacritic scores. I ended up with a list of 695 games that had both 200k sales and enough reviews for a Metascore. The following is a chart showing...
