Spyro, god of war and spiderman all leading the way. I'll be getting all of them day 1. Amazon Japan far cry 5 has been #1 a lot lately. Great performance.

Labo will be fine, I dont think it'll be a smash hit right out of the gate but will be a gradual, consistent seller.

Not looking good for labo.

Pretty much ... 

Two weeks left and the variety kit is outside the top 40 in the yearly rankings but the robot kit went outside the top 100 at either the end of last month or beginning of this month ... (Nintendo products are generally over represented so it's not good news)

It wouldn't surprise me to see if FC5 for X1 and DKCTF surpass Labo in Amazon US before it launches ... 

Out of all the regions I think Labo would've been successful is in Japan but even their not biting it that much according to COMG pre-orders so the idea itself is a failed proposition from Nintendo especially in a critical moment of the Switch's life where they are leaving the platform defenseless ... 

COMG is a very small sample of Japanese sales though......just one store.

The variety kit is doing very well on Amazon Japan, with 2 weeks to go, its got 2 SKUs in the top 10.

Robot kit not so well certainly, but that should be an early pointer as to what demographic exactly is likely to be Labo's early adopter.

I'm pretty sure COMG has multiple stores over in Japan ... 

As far as demographics are concerned, despite Labo being pro-claimed for "children" it has the highest chance of success in Japan relatively compared to every other market which is ironically an Island of elderlies ... 



I think Labo will be a huge hit but i never once thought it would have a massive start, legs and holidays will decide whether its a mainstream success or not.



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

I thought that the majority agreed on the Holidays being it's best chance of selling gangbuster.

I mean, it might have a decent start with 1 or 2 million unit sold before, but I'm more interested in that specific period.

I don't think LABO will do massive numbers from the get go, it will be a gradual thing that sells over time. The legs will be very important.



Labo overtook the NS in Japan, now at #4



It bothers me that the Switch version of Dark Souls has the Steam logo on it... Why?

I was referring to the COMG tracking being done on this site, it is for a particular COMG store. There is a very good explanation of the thread and what extrapolations can be made from the tracker on the thread. Tbone is one of the experts on that thread.

As to the demographic Labo will appeal to, I think it is to those who like building and taking things apart.....that would be mainly the young and the young at heart and maybe the Japanese too based on the little I know of their culture.
