Wow can’t believe the Elite Controller v2 is such a seller.

Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

Some people have deep pockets and want the best option for them.

duduspace11 "Well, since we are estimating costs, Pokemon Red/Blue did cost Nintendo about $50m to make back in 1996"

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

And I don't expect Animal Crossing to do wonders for Switch sales, either. It may provide a decent boost for March, but that's it. If you look at New Leaf's performance in the U.S., it sold only 1.36M copies in its first 12 weeks, and its effects on 3DS hardware sales helped it for maybe two months at best and even then only relatively modestly, with Pokemon X & Y being a far better system-seller:

AC is Nintendo's most female friendly big franchise.

It will have a notable impact in broadening NSW userbase.

It can be said that in the past AC games penetration in America and Europe wasn't as high as in Japan but to me that signal that AC has a potentially bigger room for growth in the former markets.

Why did Switch drop YOY for this NPD? Was any notable release last year?
