Lol I've been around for all the Nintendo hypetrains, that's why I keep my expectations low when it comes to their hardware. I'd shed tears of joy if they proved me wrong.

Hyrule Warriors Age Of Calamity sold three million+ copies already.  Best launch sales for a musou game ever.

Quote
Koei Tecmo reveals (via Famitsu) that this sales total already makes Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity the best-selling Warriors game of all time, outselling lifetime totals achieved by the likes of Dynasty Warriors, Dragon Quest Warriors, Fire Emblem Warriors, and the previous Hyrule Warriors games in a matter of days.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the best-selling fighting game of all time, having sold over 21 million copies by September 2020.

In just 1.8 years. :trumps

The Wii U was mostly an example of just being too soon. The tech wasn't there to do what Nintendo really wanted, but they pushed it out anyway. I'd imagine that whatever comes after Switch will continue to be a hybrid system, so it shouldn't have nearly the same kind of problems that last gen had.

We won gamers  :dice

lol.. the original article had this wrong.. I actually contacted the guy on twitter and he updated it.. now his article just makes no sense.

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/videogames-are-a-bigger-industry-than-sports-and-movies-combined-thanks-to-the-pandemic-11608654990

"Videogames are a bigger industry than movies and North American sports combined, thanks to the pandemic"

lol.. it's now comparing WW gaming to WW movies + NA sports lol

" A previous version of this report stated that PwC expected the global sports industry to be worth $75 billion in 2020. That figure was for North America. The story has been updated."

My fact checking wins again!

It's safe to assume that any time a "games journalist" writes anything about the financial aspects of the industry, they have misunderstood facts at best or purposely misrepresented the numbers to suit their personal agenda.

Sony's first party games literally follow the same sales trajectory as any other AAA game. Hugely front-loaded and then only maintain a tail because they quickly join the bargain bin, followed by new versions bundled with the DLC. After the first 3 months, literally nobody is paying full price for Sony first party games.

Nintendo, on the other hand, can sell Mario Kart 8 at full price for 6 years and counting.

There's no comparing pedigree. Sony ain't even welcome in the competition.

All these Wii U ports selling like crazy, yet it feels like Nintendo's output of new games for the Switch is low. I have more than enough to play, so I'm not complaining. I just wish they'd give their less popular franchises a shot again.

Nintendo pulled back on 2H 2020 releases because of COVID, and in prior years I'd accept some mocking to suggest this, but it really feels like they've been holding back announcing a lot of shit.

Switch is allegedly only halfway through its lifecycle so I'm sure we'll be getting some meat soon.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons appears to be the fast-selling console exclusive ever made, even including pack-ins such as WiiSports and the original Super Mario Bros.

31 million sales in 9 months.

New Horizons will have eclipsed the rest of the franchise total (N64 + GC + City Folk + Wild World + New Leaf + spinoffs) by the end of this year quarter. Holy shit. :mindblown

People wanting Year 2 DLC to BIG but also remain free, while I'm sitting here going, "There's no way Nintendo doesn't recycle the Smash/Zelda/Pokemon 'two-hit expansion pass'" idea.

What surprises me most about Nintendo's success is that they've done it in a different price bracket.
Selling $99 - $149 handhelds with Pokemon to kids is much easier than a $300 - $350 device.

Inflation probably helps. As did the 3DS breaking in with that ridiculous $250 launch MRSP, I think anyways.

Don't know about you guys, but here a Nintendo title at launch can usually be picked up for AU$64 and the regular price at the big retailers will be $69 and sometimes $79 for Smash and Zelda.

Digital will always cost $80+ except for the occasional sale or if you buy the Nintendo online voucher things.

Sony as an international business entity might not care a whole lot about Japan. Sony as a Japanese zaibatsu definitely is hurting about this. There is a strange affliction in the Japanese business mind that sees conquest at home as being infinitely superior to any other market, despite its size. Itís a matter of personal pride.
