Or at least some DLC. Don't know what else they can do with that ring other than fitness games, so why not simply make it DLC?

They could turn Mario Kart into a workout by enabling wheel controls with the ring.

Archery controls feel more authentic with the ring than with wiimote/nunchuk.

Thanks, didn't know those things were possible with the ring, hence why I speculated that DLC could be the only thing coming. But if such feats are possible with the ring, then Nintendo should definitely make more games for it.

Capcom reports have a 2m estimate on MHU for Switch. One port of one port. 

Capcom MH left millions in one stupid decision. 

Let's not pretend there wasn't huge moneyhatting going on.

Sony doesn't even need to moneyhat Capcom anymore. Like most JP third parties, their best selling games of all time have happened due to the Playstation ecosystem and Sony knows that, so the will continue with that ecosystem.

Only third party franchise I can see Sony moneyhatting for domestic reasons is DQ12.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

It's becoming increasingly unlikely that Switch will finish 2020 below 6.0m for the year. Switch Lite has clearly established itself as additive business, because the hybrid SKU keeps holding its own; despite no price cut, it's outpacing its own performance of 2019. The same holds true for global sales.

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

A shudder to think about what this system is capable of selling in the holiday season if Nintendo is able to make enough supply to meet demand.

List of best sellers:

Capcom : MHW (8-10 million on PS4)

SE: prior FFXV (7 million+ on PS4), now FF7R (PS4 exclusive)

TK: Nioh (PS4 timed exclusive)

Atlus: Persona 5 (PS4 exclusive)

NB: DBZ/Naruto/Tekken (all had the vast majority of sales/userbase on PS4)

SF 2 is in Playstatin ecosystem? Minecraft? Just Dance? Dragon Quest?

I just feel like at the moment they're like "we sell like crack without even trying, so why bother actually communicating with our fans or releasing new games?"

There is 2 directs coming this month, just patience. I agreed before, but seeing Halo getting delayed, a LAUNCH title, you can feel the impact of the quarantine in this. They have the Mario collection probably in September still. I know we didn't get much info but it's not only because they are selling out, but mostly cause they probably weren't sure of their own release schedule. Mind you, we still don't really know much about next gen either and they are releasing in like 3 months.

Have to say for the sales tho, incredible performance for the Switch. Kinda scary for anyone to try and launch a system in this environment. 

We'll see; if there is indeed a proper Direct this month (I'm highly skeptical) that actually announces some significant new games and/or gives updates on major games like BOTW2 or at least promised 2020 releases like No More Heroes 3 then I'll agree I was getting hyperbolic.

The problem is, I've been hearing "there's a big Direct coming soon" for almost a year now, and it's never materialized.

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