ubi soft got huge sales thanks to using using the mario franchise. what else sold? dragonball sold ok, and street fighter did good, but i'm talking about games that can do 2-3 million, your talking about 2-500k titles which is nothing, compared games like destiny, COD, wildlands, fifa, madden, ass creed origins. has a third party game even crossed a million on switch yet.  

Please show me all these 3rd party games that had sold 2-3 million when PS4 sales were around 7 million.

PS4 was experiencing record software sales when it was still early on. Everything big to small sold decently to fucking amazing. From third party to first party. Nintendo games sell on Nintendo consoles, third parties generally do not. The only third parties that do sell well are the big japanese franchises, because Nintendo handhelds dominate Japan. Everything else will struggle to reach 500k to 1 million.

COD, ass creed, fifa, and battle field 4, almost every big franchise sold great or went on to do over 2 million, it doesn't matter how big the user base will get all those games that you think  sold great have probably reached there limit in sales.

Call of Duty was the only game over 2 million on PS4 when its install base was at 7 million so your previous argument makes no sense.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Sounds similar to Switch, we dont go a week without hearing about a 3rd party game doing well or a developer/publisher being happy with sales.

hyperbole to the max, only niche indie titles have done well, what third party game has crossed a million on switch, none. by this time ps4 had over  10.

Well not exactly, you hear about indie games that have the best selling SKU be on Switch, but we're talking about a couple thousand units. Mario + Rabbids is a big success yes, but thats all mario. Dragonball Xenoverse 2 has sold well as well, but again this SKU sold a couple hundred thousand units. The PS4 had wayyyy more games selling way more than any of these Switch games. Pretty much every game that launched for PS4 has sold at the very least a million. The Nintendo games have all sold multiple million units on Switch so far, while nothing else has passed a million or even gotten close at all.

Biggest third party franchise on switch was fifa, and that bombed,next to bomb will be doom, and skyrim.

Not really, like i said earlier Konami, Capcom, Take-Two, Square Enix, Namco, Koei Tecmo, Ubisoft, etc. have all commented on being happy with their games performance on Switch thus far.

Pretty much every developer/publisher who has released high quaity games on Switch has been happy with their performance.

none of those companies have released anything major, well i guess except for dragonball, nba 2k18,and fifa, we don't  know the sell numbers except for xenoverse  2 which as shipped 400k just recently, thats not amazing by any means, although its ok, fifa seems to have done bad, nba 2k18 they are pleased but no sales numbers. third party games are not whats selling the switch at the moment i think it's obvious by age group and the game that are selling nintendo fans are buying the system.
