Quote
Nintendo had an impressive 2018 — the analysts at the NPD Group report that the Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console of the year, and that for the the first time since 2009, the Japanese company earned more revenue from its games than any other publisher.

Nintendo reports that 8.7 million Switch units have been sold in the U.S. from its launch in March 2017 through November 2018. The NPD group reports that December sales for the Switch were the highest for any console since the Nintendo Wii in December 2009. Riding the sales of the Switch, overall console sales grew to their highest totals since 2009, too.

Modern Nintendo's cycle is always predictable
- Reinvents the wheel with a master stroke that drives sales right out of the gate
- Doesn't really understand why their previous product did so well so their next product is based on the wrong assumptions and not nearly as succesful

Sony revealed in its financial results presentation for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018 (October 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018) that it shipped 8.1 million PlayStation 4 units during the quarter, bringing its worldwide total to 94.2 million units. The third-quarter shipments decreased by 0.9 million units compared to the same period in the previous fiscal year.

Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) announced in January that it had cumulatively sold more than 91.6 million units globally as of December 31, 2018, and sold more than 5.6 million units globally during the 2018 holiday season.

This week is the last week Media Create releases full numbers. Famitsu and Dengeki are still around but who knows how long until they follow suit.

It's one of the few topics I still follow on Reeee, so I am mildly upset about this /autism

When was that 20 million goal supposed to end?

Edit: looks like it was 4/1/18 through 3/31/19.

If they sold 32 million through the end of 2018... they might actually make it. I think they had 15 million sold at the end of 3/32/2018

That's what I was thinking. They have sold almost 1 million in Japan since 1 Jan and sales in the West have been good too. Probably just miss it I think, but they will get close.

The chart from Nintendo's report only shows games that sold a million copies in the previous fiscal year [along with their lifetime totals].

I did some digging, and the best estimate I can give you for XB2's total sales is somewhere between 1.53 million [it's total sales as of September 2018] and 2.64 million [the total sales of Mario Tennis Aces, the #10 best-selling game on Switch as reported on Nintendo's website].

Is PS5 really an Autumn 2020 release? :(
Seems to be the general belief. 360 launched 05 and then the bone was '13. So current round will only be a year shorter if new machines hit next year. Of course this gen also may feel a bit shorter cause we got the pro/x upgrades. :meeble

The console version came out just a few months before the start of this fiscal year, so it's probably from that.

You start out with an alternative history WW2 game.

You turn that into a WW2 game without any of the iconic fights and release a trailer that puts a focus on the cosmetics and how 'inclusive' it is.
And you have Trevor Noah present the thing.

It doesn't sell

One could argue that making such an alternative history is blackwashing (or femalewashing or whatever bs they included in the game) history itself, cultutal appropriation of a historic event, the biggest conflict ever.

You could say that is hugely disrespectful to the memory of those involved.

Anyhoo Battlefield was best around 1-2 and idk why they want to stray from that gritty real world formula (anf afaik bf was always the arcadey game already compared to Arma) anf go down this herp game bs.

Checked in on Media Create, the only non-Switch game in the top 10 is the PS4 rerelease of Yakuza 5. :doge

Also this was kinda obvious a few years ago but Yokai Watch has completely collapsed. Another corpse of a "Pokemon killer" on the pile.

Who knows, depending on how low the price for the Switch Mini will go I can see it going beyond 100 million. It's gonna beat 50 million by years end, after less than three years worth of sales.

Of years, I’m sure it will get there.
