NSMBUD is a 6 year old port, it's not a system seller.

I guess this needs some argumentations...

I don't see what that has to do with my post.

Kinda funny that people were like ''Switch getting a port of a Wii U game'' and writing it off as a joke, they werent wrong saying this, but now that an old Wii U port didnt move consoles, they're suddenly surprised and acting like it was supposed to move systems. Can't have it both ways and use it when its most convenient xD

If anything It doesn't shock me at all that the game didn't do much for Switch. One of the reasons I didn't pick it up again because its just an ehh game and not worth a re-purchase for me, if you've played it on Wii U, you've already played this and if you've played any of the NSMB series in general, you've already played it. It will prob sell well to the current Switch userbase but no one will pick up a Switch just to play it.

As far as the numbers, Switch once again ahead, they've been ahead for awhile now, but this will change come mid/end January with the release of RE 2 and KH3. Due to Nintendo currently squandering early 2019. I can't see PS4 losing WW on a weekly basis after Mid Jan, PS4 will control most of 2019 unless Nintendo gets back on the ball.

Yeah at this rate the first half of the year is looking like another missed opportunity for Switch. They need to get back into the habit of putting a heavy hitter in March-May like they did with MK8, Splatoon 1, and BOTW to drive momentum.

I mean who knows, they could surprise us and have Fire Emblem in April and Animal Crossing in June, but at this stage it's not looking good.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Yay! Switch #1 again!



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Man the XB1 is not doing great smh. The PS4 still holding strong....the thing is a monster! And the Switch takes the crown very nice!



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

Looks like NSMBU didn't do sh*t. I mean, I'll wait for its software numbers which might be impressive but a system seller it's not.

That was the week of Super Mario U deluxe....hmmm...

Post holiday sales are always going to show a drop, NSMBU DX will be a long term seller and its goal shouldn't be to cause a big boost but to keep sales stable throughout this quarter.

I hope that's the case. Although then again 250k could just be the new baseline. 



I am not sure why the "Hardware Chart" on the front page hasn't updated yet. I've let Talon and the devs know about the issue. Hopefully the issue isn't anything major.

NS - 252,613
PS4 - 221,011
XBO -77,462
3DS - 46,688
PSV - 1,708

Last year

NS-204,361

PS4-269,094

XBO-82,461

3DS-70,481

Vita-7955

So everything except Switch is down YOY.

Makes sense given the age of the other systems, I suppose. They're declining with age while Switch is still getting started.

New Super Mario was released on january 11th, so The chart is only about 2 days of sales. So the spike is over 2 weeks and not only one. We saw it with SSBU. If the numbers for Japan from Nintendolife are right :

Current week of the thread :
NS 78K
PS4 18K

Following week
NS 71K
PS4 16K

KH3 + RE2's week
PS4 52.6K
NS 52.4K



PS4 keep doing it's great number. This year it's :

100 million mark /
Beats Wii /
Beats PS1 /

This year the PS4 will become the 2nd best-selling home console of all time.
