That's some insane COMG ratio. It shows that Switch audience is more 1st party-oriented than ever.

This is not surprising. The company that makes the best titles deserves the best sales. It is almost like gamers appreciate quality software or something.

It’a still less than 60% of the software sold. It will probably go down soon though. 

You can find the ratio of 1st/3rd party game sales for all the nintendo consoles here:

Nevermind, just checked ResetEra. 3rd highest Mario FW ever, behind NSMB Wii and NSMB, 936k and 865k respectively.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

SMO got beaten by Splatoon 2, while launching on a larger user-base though.

What the flamio! And it doesn't include digital sales? So, SMO is the biggest launch for any 3D Mario game ever. And it's mind-boggling how much of a push this has been for hardware, even bigger than on Splatoon 2's launch week (98k I think).

Can't wait for the official Media Create numbers :)

Well, to be fair, thats only because Nintendo had more supply to sell now compared to Splatoon 2 launch.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Goddamn, that is insane.

Yes but still, they handled SMO's launch better.



That would mean, globally, boost to around 500,000 Switchs sold that week.



I was expecting 500k at first, and then decreased my prediction to 450k because of COMG... Stupid COMG >:(



2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

Well, except if Nintendo has grossly underestimated their own sales, it looks like I've lost my bet. Congrats to Slarvax.

We still don't have FW sales for the US .... + isn't your bet about the first week of sale and not the first 3 days ?



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

If Mario Odyssey sold >500k in Japan (and there are digital sales), 900k in USA seem very likely.
