The voucher program was a limited offer to Nintendo Online members first which isn't even covering half the sold market. Then you still need to buy the thing. Which I doubt the numbers were overwhelmingly great since Nintendo back off the offer in most region already.

It's influence is a marginal print.

As for your last claims. First, the Japanese market which is what I am referring my first post with, isn't still wild in the adoption of digital video games on Nintendo console market. Most of the digital sales numbers confirmed the drop digital adoption after the first few weeks of release. It drops fast which means in the long term. The digital ratio actually loses ground against physical.

Lastly, I'd be interested to know the names of these two 1st party Nintendo games with a digital ratio of 40% and where you found that info.

Yeah for digital ratio I do agree it’s much higher within launch than long term. Ex of this is Smash. I’m mostly talking about the launch for the titles

as for the 2 titles it’s Fire Emblem and Astral Chain. I don’t have the source for that (someone could help?) on me but it was discussed on resetera going by sales/sell thru/shipments. 

that’s how we got estimates for smm2 (20%) and more

5,980 Donkey Kong Country TF - 222,025 / 57,975 (20%)
5,980 Kirby Star Allies - 291,933 / 38,067 (11%)

I think we actually got a estimate for some of them going by sell % no? Anyways thanks for posting goes and shows what vouchers do

After DX posts I'll take back what I said for the marginal influence of the vouchers. Although, I wonder if it'll be durable in time ... There's fact the info he got is refering to quarterly sales results so it's not the full picture of the total sales.

As for FE Three Houses and Astral Chain. Since the volume of copies sold isn't as enormous as others I think the possibility of it being over 30% is a good possibility.

If only Nintendo was more outright about these specific ratios instead of bundling them with all online purchases related stuff ...

That was my only question to haha. I want to know what a white rappers lifestyle is more though

um, w

hich world do you live in?  it's not about the colour, it is what it is...

It's not about color yet you said 'black rapper's lifestyle'... If you're worried about being 'called things' how about 'shutting it' before making tone deaf comments that aren't pertinent to the thread. 



Damn impressive.

Going by sell thru data we can tell. Astral specifically sold roughly 50k retail and shipment wasn’t more than 60k and for the quarter was about 105k (have to go back and see exact numbers)

I think smm2 and LoZ LA were literally at the end of the quarter so it’s fine for the full picture on those 2 titles

and here we go... again, I said it because that's what it is! it's not my fault if people love to be offended from 'everybody knows' things

just commented on how happy I am that AC is exactly the opposite of GTA and the relevant trending cult, and still increased its relevance this much ^_^



don't mind my username, that was more than 10 years ago, I'm a different person now, amazing how people change ^_^

Here we go again?? Ah I get you now, you like to stir the pot and irritate people with your narrow-minded views and then claim innocence. Okay, carry on, back to Animal Crossing. 



Those are big numbers. Nintendo must have put some resources into the AC model Switch. The shortages will worsen soon, I'd imagine.

narrow-minded! thank you, I've just been called something, and no I don't like it but I got used to it, and which view exactly is 'narrow-minded' by you? is being against the trending criminal cult that bad? we fight for a better world or we don't, what do you stand for in the end of the day

hiding the truth under the blanket will never solve the problem, I am not the criminal here

WTF you just proved him right on all counts Rap is a genre and Gangster Rap is a sub genre of Rap, Will Smith is a Rapper and doesn't fall under what you say neither do people like Logic, Childish Gambino etc... All you've done here is shown huge ignorance to justify an equally ignorant term you used most Gangster Rap is all an act as well much like in films.

WTF man, you guys even serious in here, when I say "sex, drugs, guns, black rapper's lifestyle" I obviously do not refer to all black rappers, do I need to state the obvious? I listen to rap myself for Christ's sake, but definitely not the one with the crappy sex/drugs/guns lifestyle lyrics

I am against any kind of crime, and against the huge exposure of this cult as it is closely associated with crime acts, do not get WTF is so wrong with that
