I know it's not the best indicator to go by but if Amazon China is any reflection of the gaming demographic in China then the Switch and its games are going to be massive there!

amazon china is a pretty poor source for anything China related tbqh.

There are much bigger, vastly more popular, eCommerce stores.

That's why I said if it's in any way indicative of the general gaming demographic. It may be a small sample but it also could be a genuine cross-section of Chinese gamers.

ANIMAL CROSSING NEW LEAF FRIEND CODE:- 5129 1175 1029. MESSAGE ME.
ANDY MURRAY:- GRAND SLAM WINNER!

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

1B sales confirmed.



The advert seems to get the point across really well. Whether or not it will impress the general Chinese public, I've no idea.

No source sorry, someone on a financial forum that I follow pretends that pre orders in China reached a total of 103820 units on first day.



Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
Fastest TI MASTER in Europe : rank Master V in 5min10
Current PB on Power Ranger (Game Gear) : 10min06 (World Record)

LET'S FACE THIS FACT : The Switch is the last physical video game system of the history who has a chance to beat PS2's sales.

I thought this release was going to take a while longer.
They have been working towards it for a while but getting into the chinese market is hard.

Well they managed to release it before christmas and New Years.
Seems like preorders are already going well.

And look at those ads :D

I just find this ad fascinating.  I've never been to China, so I don't know what it's like there.  I somehow picture this ad targeting families in the top 10-20% of income range.

"Liftoff, we have Liftoff"

Imagine if sales became big enough to become it's own region. China certainly has enough inhabitants to allow this to happen.



2019 not peak year confirmed btw.

The ads are amazing to me.
Hopefully it does well enough.
