  1. This sort of content is why I still adore the series and GF. Technical problems be damned.
  2. Posts like these remind how shitty the ignore feature is on this forum.

S/V full number had digital downloads included. Sales wise there's nothing stopping them from continuing on with the same amount of bugs. But Game Freak have shown to be pretty eager to chase their fans desires. A lot of S/V features were implemented due to fan demand. But GF's lack of skill at creating 3D games in general is really tripping them up combined with an insane release schedule that had them thinking they could release this and Legends Arcues in the span of 12 months and everything would turn out fine. I'd say at this point they'd need help from a second developer with the creation of the mainline series. Bandai Namco or Monolith seem good candidates to me.
  4. Well, there goes Splatoon 3's record. Nintendo has announced that Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have sold 10 million copies in their first 3 days on the market. In Japan alone, S/V crossed the 4 million units mark at 4,05 units sold. Outselling the entirety of Sun/Moon on the 3DS. For comparison, Splatoon 3 sold 3,45 million in its first 3 days in Japan. The worldwide number is also the biggest software opening ever for a software title on a Nintendo system and the biggest opening Nintendo has ever had. The numbers include both physical sales as well as digital versions. https://www.nintendo.co.jp/corporate/release/2022/221124.html?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_content=20221124&utm_campaign=ir (the announcement is in Japanese) EDIT: The current list of big openings for Switch software: -Pokémon Scarlet/Violet - 10.000.000 units -Pokémon Legends: Arceus - 6.500.000 units -Pokémon BD/SP - 6.000.000 units -Pokémon Sword/Shield - 6.000.000 units -Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - 5.000.000 units -Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee - 3.000.000 units -Super Mario Odyssey - 2.000.000 units
  5. You could always turn it upside down and claim it'll start selling negative amounts of units.
  6. Well, that was a bit shit. A plot that makes really weird shifts out of the blue, new characters that just appear and we're supposed to care, the film is all over the place. Shame, especially as everyone is giving some outstanding performances.
  7. The reason I highlighted the PS5 performance has a lot to do with where Playstation was as a brand last year. It came dangerously close to selling less then 1 million units of hardware over the entire calendar year. That has only happened twice in the entire history of the Playstation brand. There were severe questions going into 2022 if the PS5 could sell 1 million on its own considering how it performed in '21. Now that were heading into the holiday however, the stock seems to be there and the PS5 seems to be in a much healthier position then last year. But yes, you're correct in saying that Xbox is now in a much stronger position then the Xbox One. Microsoft still has a lot of work left to do though. As evidenced by this graph: And here's the current outlook for the PS5 in Japan: Finally, the Switch:

Looks like Sony will have a better end of year result then last year. -Xbox seems to have slipped away by quite a bit though, sadly. -If you want to get a decent feel of where the Japanese market is right now, then the performance of Tactics Ogre and Sonic should be seen as instructive. Both titles on Switch outsold the PS4 & PS5 versions combined. Tactics Ogre on Switch almost doubled the performance compared to the other versions. A year ago that wasn't the case with many a multi-platform release.

Just in time for the holidays. We'll have Pokémon in 2 weeks time. We're heading for another record launch for that one it seems.
  10. Sony getting rid of their indie outreach team more like. There was a story a few years back before the PS5 launched that they had done so. They've reformed it more recently but that team has had to effectively start from square one.
  11. *ahem* Today we have more news from Japan. It's time for the weekly Famitsu numbers.

But it looks like Sony is going in with much better supply for the Holidays. Nintendo, on the other hand, seems to be having difficulty getting enough Switches to stores. In particular the Switch Lite seems to be completely gone from store shelves. This week marks the launch of the Pokemon Switch OLED for Scarlett/Violet so that should help.

PS5 as well which is pretty significant seeing as Sony last year didn't seem able to ship enough PS5's to Japan which lead to some dreadfull sales numbers. These numbers show that won't be the case for this Christmas.
  13. Your best bet to play on better hardware would be getting a Steam Deck and emulate it. Otherwise, you're stuck with the fact Nintendo funded development and is taking on publishing duties with this one.
