Interesting. 

 

FIFA switch in France apparentely did pretty well too, no wonder E.A's mumblings have turned more positive



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

Fifa between ps4 and switch is now officially bigger then pes in Japan.



I am not going to lie. I was not expecting this to happen for a year or two. What surprises me even more are the legs of the game.It sold much less on launch week but it just kept selling on the power of legs. Keep in mind that the Switch has a lower userbase than the PS4 right now. The results are only going to get more skewed towards Switch more and more.

If this can happen with Fifa then one must wonder what other titles can this happen to. I don't think people realize just how much the Japanese market is going to change due to the Switch. It might feel unrecognizable in 2020.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

That's because PS4 owners are #woke.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

There's a huge demand for soccer games in general and since a game is only 10 to 15 minutes long is well suited for portable play. Right now the Switch is the most viable way to play it on the go

I am almost LMAO. Since they used Dengeki numbers. I mean sure the numbers aren't too far off, but people rarely use Dengeki anymore, especially since we can just look at MC or Famitsu.



Sorry to let the side down. I'll make sure to buy the Japanese version of FIFA on PS4 this year

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I think that Famitsu numbers made same point few weeks ago.



But 1st week UK numbers for Fifa on Switch proved us that Fifa on Switch bombed. :D



Meh XV2 is more impressive
