True, but its probably best to wait until the next investor meeting next week so we can truly hear how Labo is doing cause there they will have to face investors and it would be illegal to lie to them I believe.

They don't have to lie about anything, they never gave any kind of public declaration of what they thought Labo should sell anyway. I think privately though they are some what disappointed. I don't think the plan was to just tread water for the entire spring + summer if they were serious about shipping 20 million Switch units ... they were expecting Labo to break through as the summer wore on I think and help drive Switch sales, which isn't happening. 

true like admittedly it is hard to really come to any conclusions about Labo since well we're basically told nothing before launch in terms of expectation and the amount of stock they actually ship and Reggie's comments that does feel like mix signals. I'm hoping at least the investors meeting will give us insight to how it is doing so far and what they expectations for the rest of the year at least.

The Switch needs a boost



Another great month for PS4 as expected. June is going to be interesting. Will the uproar over Fortnite be substantial, or just a bunch of noise? Did E3 move the needle in any way? I never doubted they would win may with God of War and Detroit, but the next few months are hard to judge. Then it should be back in Sony's court come September.

At this point I actually think Microsoft could grab a few of the summer months.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

I think Fortnite will at least move a bit more Switch's and Xbox's off of the shelf cause of the drama, but just a small increase I bet. The reason why I think this is largely due to the MSM getting involved and reporting on the story, if it weren't that part of the story I don't think it would of had really any effect. 



Very good for PS4. DK did extremely well!!!! What else released on the Switch in may?



Pocky Lover Boy!

The cross play drama, Matt on ResetERA said a few months back that Fortnite was responsible for a surprising amount of PS4's and Xbox One's being sold this year.

Also they might be learning what cross play is due to the mainstream media picking up this story.

I'm just saying that the mainstream media picking up this story might have some impact, I'm not saying it will be big factor of which system will take 1st, just a small impact.

I doubt it will have any impact, obviously anyone really pissed by this would own a switch, or a xbox one already.

Going by prediction tool (in the US) it looks like PS4 is handily leading the pack, so far (June).
So looks to be a repeat of May, PS4 > NSW > XB1.

Uproar about fortnite is a big nothing burger, as is crossplatform something the vast majority simply dont care about, its the vocal minority and non playstation users usually that make all the noise (impact will be non exsistant).

E3? Every fanbase walked away kinda happy.... even Nintendo (who I thought had the worst e3 of the big 3) ones.



But did they win our hearts?
