Labo is 4. best selling game in April, now we can stop with those nonsense that Labo bombed.

Doesn't tell us anything without the hard numbers ... 

The gap between Far Cry 5 and Labo remains unknown for April ...

He says it's "fine", it would seem to depend on individual or aggregate expectations ... 

Depending on what most think of the hard numbers if it sells under 150K to maybe even under 200K in April, it maybe quite a few would consider it a "bomb" so to speak ...

First he knows numbers, second he said it did fine, not great or not terrible. So with that on mind and fact thats 4. best selling game of month, we can say its fact that Labo didnt bombed.

Main reason why people thouth that Labo bombed is that is not selling great like they expected, but point that it did not sold great doesn't mean it bombed also, its sold OK/fine, not great or terrible.

Agreed. It didn't bomb. It sold to Nintendo enthusiasts which is why it had minimal if any impact on hardware sales.

Agree, it seems that Labo definitely didn't moved Switch hardware, but it will be interesting to pay attention Labo sales in following months especially during Holiday season when could move some units also.

Can you compare 2nd Aprils for Switch and the rest as well as 6th April to the rest for PS4?



Labo didn't bomb but it's performance is nothing to celebrate.
