True, but

a) Famitsu most wanted rankings do not translate into sales. More popular stuff get's low votes in this list.

b) Some of the games listed here are on the list for ages. That is especially true for PS-stuff. As Nintendo is pretty close-lipped about their releases until they are near, the titles each have a shorter time on the list. That means, with the same number of releases, there are probably three times as much upcoming PS-titles known and can therefore voted for.

And for the final nail in the coffin I want to direct your attention to #23 Ushiro. The Famitsu list is certainly interesting, but cannot be used to infer any real interest in games or platforms. The Famitsu list reflects a very closed small group of people. Still interesting though.

Was Ushiro cancelled or not? It's been there forever, and even the Wikipedia page lists it as cancelled. Why is it still allowed on the Famitsu list?

Because people name it. I don't think Famitsu restricts in any way what title can be named.

Besides Smash and Pokemon, I don't see many other AAA/Very popular Nintendo games to come.

a) I never said it would and I don't care about sales, I'm only talking about most wanted games.

b) Yes, PS4 has more games than Nintendo as always. That's why I ask: What else Nintendo has for 2019 and beyond?

About the final nail, I'm still just discussing Famitsu, I guess you think I'm into some sort of Sony vs Nintendo wars, but I'm not.

Let's celebrate the fact on that specific list in this specific topic: 7 out of ten are PS games and that's nice.



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019
