Forums - Sales Discussion - 2013 to 2020 1st party reception and sales battle - Redone

Considering the comments from the previous thread I made some adjustments.

I have included all games that were directly or co-developed by a Platform Holder and released on one of the consoles or handhelds. So if a game is missing send the data to be included.

For the GOTY I used GOTY Awards: https://gotypicks.blogspot.com/

For the Scores I used: metacritic.com

For Sales I used VGC and when found I used shipment or sales numbers informed by platform holders or analysts. If a more precise number is know please give source to update.

duduspace11 "Well, since we are estimating costs, Pokemon Red/Blue did cost Nintendo about $50m to make back in 1996"

Around the Network

Doing a quick once-over, this is definitely a huge improvement. Kudos.



Remade before I got a chance to complain about BOTW.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

Nicely done. And Infamous:First Light only got a 73? F*** off game critics.



Chinese food for breakfast

 

Nice improvement and now we can actually start to make some observations from this.

- Ninty and Sony both had a solid amount of critically acclaimed 1st parties. Microsoft is unsuprisingly behind by quite a bit.
- Nintendo ofc had have some great titles, but they also have the highest percentage of low metascore games, notably including Kirby and AC spinoffs and every Mario Party except Super. Luckily there has been less of those in recent years.
- Sales wise Nintendo are ofc kings when it comes to 1st party, but Sony has upped their game quite a bit in these last 7 years and are doing impressive numbers as well.



Around the Network

The sales segment is pointless imo. Nintendo provides quarter by quarter sales info on all their software. MS has stopped giving numbers eversince XB1 massively declined. Sony only gives numbers whenever they feel like.

I think its best to look at ranges, bare in mind a fair amount of this is predicting LTD:

Nintendo

25-30M : Mario Kart, AC
20-25M: SSB, Zelda, MO, Pokemon
15-20M:
10-15M: Pokemon third entry, Splatoon, SMP
5-10M: LM3, SMM, 2D Zelda
<5M: FE, Kirby, Xenoblade, etc

Sony

25-30M : TLOU II (?)
20-25M: Spiderman

20-25M:
15-20M:
10-15M:
5-10M: Forza Horizon, Halo
<5M: Forza Motorsport, Gears, SoT, SoD, Crackdown etc

The metacritic score tracker is great. Really shows how Sony and Intendo have excelled in first party games while MS is virtually lost.

The sales segment is pointless imo. Nintendo provides quarter by quarter sales info on all their software. MS has stopped giving numbers eversince XB1 massively declined. Sony only gives numbers whenever they feel like.

I think its best to look at ranges, bare in mind a fair amount of this is predicting LTD:

Nintendo

25-30M : Mario Kart, AC
20-25M: SSB, Zelda, MO, Pokemon
15-20M:
10-15M: Pokemon third entry, Splatoon, SMP
5-10M: LM3, SMM, 2D Zelda
<5M: FE, Kirby, Xenoblade, etc

Sony

25-30M : TLOU II (?)
20-25M: Spiderman
15-20M: GOW, UC4
10-15M: Horizon, GoT (?)
5-10M: GT, DG, Bloodborne, Ratchet, Death Stranding (?)
<5M: Gravity Rush, Team ICO, LBP, Infamous etc

5-10M: Forza Horizon, Halo
<5M: Forza Motorsport, Gears, SoT, SoD, Crackdown etc

Question how did you draw that conclusion if the average is Sony 82 MS 81 and nintendo 78?

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Average would be the wrong thing to look at here. The reverence of Sony and Nintendo's first party comes from their quality output quantity. Yes they release numerous not so good games but the quantity of fantastic games easily overcomes this.

If you look at 80+ (tbh I would say 75+), great games:

Sony: 32

Nintendo: 41

MS: 13

Another thing that adds reverence to a studio is the GOTY award or discussion. Just look at the disparity there.

Sony also gives updates to most of their noteworthy releases. Sure it isn't as often and transparent as Nintendo. But even like that Nintendo is a little troubling to look for data. Their wiki for what are the studios and them their releases per studio is less organized than Sony and MS, plus on the sales most of the not blockbuster on google only showed the percentage of shipment sold in japan on first week but not total sales. So to update their numbers I would probably need to go to all their financial data scooping for info =[. But yes MS is even harder to get proper data, the best we can get is their comments on number of users due to GP. Also not to forget that we are basically comparing MS and Sony 1 system against Nintendo 3 system mostly.

Much better this time around, though I would have included Astral Chain and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE as Nintendo owns the IP.

In any case, it looks like Sony dominates GotY awards and has the highest overall average, while Nintendo dominates actual software sales and has the most games above not only 90, but between 80-90 as well. The average however is dragged down to the lowest due to a few stinkers they have let out as well. Meanwhile it also shows XBox lagging in general when it comes to 1st party, but we already knew that.

Upon reflection, it it clear why I have always been a Playstation gamer since the PS2 and why Nintendo has found its way back into my home as my primary console. Both have done great over the years.
