Business as usual.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Switch with the best VGC 4 week start to a year and best VGC January ever at 1,652K. Next best is NDS 09 at 1,610K and NDS 08 at 1,585K. NSW 2020 was at 1,319K.



Switch seems unstoppable! Can’t wait to see what they have to reveal within 2021 ;)

Asia is really buying Switch like crazy.  There is no doubt that Switch is popular in Japan, but the rest of Asia sold about 13% of the Switch's worldwide total.  That is not a trivial little piece.  Here is a further regional breakdown for Switch just using a little subtraction.

Japan   114,209
N.A.     93,953
Europe     85,980
Asia (not Japan)     47,904
Oceania     13,158
Americas (not N.A.)       8,233

Mainland Asia's gaming tastes aren't too different from Japan's. Or to be more precise, South Korea and southeast Asia, because the Middle East is a different beast in cultural terms.

That's why it's shortsighted when people write off Nintendo's dominance in Japan as something isolated to Japan, because what happens in Japan will likely spill over, now that Nintendo has bothered to have an increased presence outside of their typical main territories.

I was going to post a lengthy response explaining that profits is all that matters and that Xbox division makes a lot more of that from PC Gamepass users than it would by forcing hardware sales of console by not having a Gamepass, but then I realized your Kirby and I am assuming you are just trolling?

It was going to be a great hypothetical debate, too!

Well, if the rest of the Pacific Asian region likes Animal Crossing and Ring Fit Adventure as much as Japan does, then that would definitely explain why their hardware sales are so high.
