Only Nintendo can port a game to a new system and have it sell more than the original. The selling power of their games is impressive. I can't think of any other publisher with such a stable of game series that can sell by themselves. That might be a bit due to the reviews but say even if a Sony game gets reviewed a 95+ it doesn't sell this much this fast.

Eh, a bit of hyperbole here. Plenty of Sony's properties sell well, regardless of the speed. None of their franchises are as strong as Mario, but then, they don't have to be.

One doesn't have to keep up with the other in order for either to look good. On its own SMO has done great, just like, let's say, The Last Of Us (a title that did just as good on PS4 as it did on PS3 - to combat your first sentence), has for Sony.

Not saying they don't sell but they don't sell this well. TLOU R only sold as much as it did with heavy bundling. That's not impressive compared to MK8D which sold on its own and outsold the original more quickly.

I still don't think it matters, bundled or otherwise.

That's because the Wii U only sold 13 million lifetime, while the PS3 was a decent success.



Alright, Mario & Mario are making money, but Xenoblade and ARMS have done well, while Splatoon has pretty much solidify itself as a top franchise.

Of course it matters, they're competitors of each other, no matter what anyone says.

In the context that he put it, no, it doesn’t.
