Hey just remembered, but do we know how much did TMS sold in this quarter ?

No. It would have had to ship 1m+ during the fiscal year to get publicized. That's too high of a hurdle.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Have we apologized to the guy who had made a prediction here 2 years ago that BotW would beat Mario O in sales ?



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.

That was certainly a bold prediction that panned out. What do you think the chances are of an Odyssey to launching before the Switch 2?

I dunno about the chances, but I would do terrible, terrible things for an Odyssey successor on Switch. The team is coming up on 3 years since I hope to god they haven't had to squander their time and talent on the rumored 3D Mario remasters instead of a new game.

Huh, usually they still give numbers for their games released in the current quarter.

Honestly, this wouldn't have hurt to just know ...

*sigh* oh well ...

No, they don't. For example, Astral Chain wasn't mentioned until its second quarter had ended, because it took the game this long to ship 1m+.

... You say that and yet I think I'll go take a look at those Q2 2019 documents. I'm sure we did get confirmation in October that Astral Chain did ship 1M by then.

No, 1M+ in the FY has been the requirement for many years now.

I doubt they work on those, doesn’t seem likely at all, unless they changed up a lot which I also doubt. Maybe they worked on SM3DW2 ;)
