Forums - Gaming Discussion - Why don't Sony and Microsoft update their top selling games every financial period?

Sony usually lists milesstones like 10 million copies sold. Either that or they make the information available somehow. MS on the other than hides their pitiful sales numbers behind excuses like "But too many people play it on gamepass", or "Lifetime total sales don't matter anymore! It's playercount that matters!"

It's Microsoft who is putting Microsoft titles out: if they're more concerned with gamepass or playercount rather than salesnumbers, who are we to tell them otherwise?

Because I am legitimately curious as to why one company does something the others don't, because my questions tend to lean towards the console maker I prefer, and because this is a site we are supposed to talk about games and game-related stuff on.

It ultimately shouldn't matter to you, because you have your fixation set on Nintendo and not the other two. Your post history and threads point out this factor. 

Again, I do not know why you are bothered about the sales of the other to, in comparison to Nintendo. 



Step right up come on in, feel the buzz in your veins, I'm like an chemical electrical right into your brain and I'm the one who killed the Radio, soon you'll all see

So pay up motherfuckers you belong to "V"

Information is a good thing, and it is useful data to compare the groups. Especially to argue points about 1st v 3rd party relevencies and the like. 



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

Info in general yes, but not when it's being used for personal fanboy fixation points, because that is the opposite and unhealthy by default.

What's this about 1st vs 3rd party relevancies?. Third party is much needed in this industry, so it's "relevance" isn't something to put into question, and we all know 1st party titles are needed to sell a console, so theirs isn't something to question relevancy of either. Both are pretty much needed for all systems to pretty much validate their existence.
