But do they mean out of 10 or out of 100?

Out of 100. It is also only one review. 

Well the game in question is by Konami, so I guess the user review was from someone who really hates Konami, which doesn't really narrow it down.

Switch just needs big Japanese games.. it has no huge seller there except like Splatoon 2.. the rest is good to average.

They need a 2D mario/MH/Animal crossing/Pokemon

Switch from June starting to have quite good lineup and later this year it will have some strong hevy hitters like Yokai Watch, Smash Bros and Pokemon.

Aftermath of what?

Of Golden Week. Everything is back to normal prices and its historically the worst week in Japan.

Yeesh, this is not a very healthy week in the market.

Some summer weeks will be worse, and I think the summer time is generally where the worst week of the year happens.

@both the worst week is usually in October imo. But of course there are a lot of bad weeks, and it depends on game releases.

Donkey Kong and Golden week pushed Switch sales to 57k but you think the games you mentioned in a slower time of year will have a bigger impact?  ...Ok

No, I mentioned they'd help on top of bigger holiday numbers. Also all of the games I mentioned are brand new titles not a port... so who knows? For Yokai Watch 4 I can see bigger numbers than 57k for Switch.

But for Super Smash Bros. you can't see a bigger number than 57k?



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

Oh, I must have missed the golden week sales thread then, either that or it was so underwhelming that I didn't even notice the difference.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

That's a post golden week week, alright!
