And it feels like a free to play mobile game... wait, it is xP
People should have saved their money for the real pokemon next year, but for each their own.

Oh no guys! Bralod says it feels like a f2p mobile game! Better save our money for 2019! He must have spent hours in the game already to make this conclusion. 

 

Not that the 81 meta score it had matters or anything. 

Now that you mention MC, I believe Pokemon Let's Go has a higher MC score than LoD.

And it only around 80 million PS4s for that to happen 

 

LOL. Kerotan needs so many words to make it look less exceptional, and you destroy it in one sentence. Nice.

Well,to be fair there are 80 million PS4s out there because there are 10x the amount of competitive great selling games per year in PS4 compared to Switch, so install base, as repeated again and again don't mean a game will sell more automatically. When you have 80M consoles, yes game A have more people to sell it, but there is game B, game C, ....We know this happend with Wii games too, games from 2007-2009 sold way more than games from 2010-2012 despite being twice the install base.

On topic: Great result by Let's Go. I expected around 10M sold by the end of the year, and seeing this numbers it probably will come true. It will have long legs too, at least until next Pokemon game next year. And by the way I want to add that Gen 1 of Pokemon is still the best after all this years....XD.

Well Pokemon Go does infact exist. :L



This 3m alone would make it the 5th best selling game so far of NS but it's likely the sales have already moved on from that mark since then so it could be at 5m at this point.

Shipments are probably over 7mil already. But sell through catching up. Black Friday and many stores will have extra copies. 10mil by years end ship+digital. 8.5mil is the lowest about itll do by end of year

Either the third quarter report will be an interesting one as the are two possible 10m sellers with a potential third releasing in NSMB in January. If PLG and Smash hit 10 that would be 5 10m sellers in under two years, Splatoon 2 is likely to eventually cross that mark LT as is NSMB.



Loving the hell out of this game! Awesome sales!

Imagine what it'll be if they make a real Pokemon game on the Switch.

Well, how could they have known? It's not like anyone requested a mainline Pokemon game for a home console before, ever.

The sad thing is that they very much do know and they popped this thing out just to milk some money and make the next actual Pokemon game on Switch look even better in comparison.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

People should really play it. Its a new experience and an incredible one.
