      What the fuck are you talking about. While the game lets you create a nog if you want there are no actual nog characters in the game. All of the characters are clearly either Japanese or white actually. Splatoon 2 did have one nog, so actually the number has decreased.

            Right now it is. Nintendo is rapidly growing in China and it will eventually become their biggest market. We haven't gotten an update on their chinese sales in years but last time we did it had sold 4m in China, in like a year. It's gonna be past 10m by now. I'm sure by the next console they'll sell at least 25m in China unless the chinks randomly ban them for some reason.

          • 1 week ago
            Anonymous

            Yeah, you're right, but the economics of first party games versus third party ones is way different.

            First party games don't have a sizable cut off the revenue go to the platform holder, as they are the holder. That means they're keeping around 20-25% of the revenue depending on the physical/digital split. First party games exist to sell hardware rather than just the game itself, and when you're Nintendo who profits on hardware, even better.

            There is no knowledge about TotK's budget, but in an investor call from around the release of BotW, it was started the game would need to sell 2 million copies to break even and that it was the most expensive game Nintendo ever made at the time. That would put it at a total budget of approximately $100 million as physical copies bring less revenue and were the majority of copies sold in 2017.

            Compare that to something like Square's Avengers game which sold 4 million copies, additional microtransactions and still lost them over $60 million dollars, and wiping out all of the profits from FF7R made in 2020. Being generous and having the microtransaction sales negate discounts on the game, Square dropped ~$225 million in just one AAA game, Avengers, it's safe to say the next main title in thier flagship IP will have a bigger budget. FF16 will at the bare minimum need to sell 6 million copies at full price to break even assuming it costs a little more than Avengers did to make and market. Something like Zelda TotK will likely need to sell about half that to start making money, and will end up selling more in the end as Zelda is currently a much stronger brand.

      Japan is one of the few places to give us actual numbers which US/UK charts don't, along with Spain iirc. It's also THE only one to give us exact numbers to the single digits instead of 100s or 1000s.
      It's also where many fan-favourite series/anticipated games come from, so there's that too.
      NPD still gets posted anyway whenever they update it. I'm actually curious as to when they give us the August charts.

    If anything, if these people were real sony fans they would be as angry and spiteful towards Sony as I am. Sony has completely lost itself. They use to be great during the PS1 and PS2 eras, and went to shit during the PS3. Xenshorship, abandoning Japan, pushing politics and movie-games. My only reasoning is that these people are zoomers and don't actually remember when Sony was good.

        Resident Evil 4 was already on the PS4. You're talking about a port of an old game that's been remastered in the same way Uncharted was.

        Meanwhile Monster Hunter Paradise isn't listed to be coming to PS4 and that's a brand new game.

        PS2 and PS3 had garbage hardware too (PS3 when compared to its HD counterparts at least), but I didn't see devs making those excuses then either. It's only "weak hardware not suitable for a port" when it's Nintendo.

        Maddening how Bamco is still using the PS2 version of Tales of Symphonia for the HD releases, which has HALF the framerate of the Gamecube.

              Don't be an idiot anon. Except for GTA none of these have had an entry that sold on par with Nintendo's top five and that's not counting the heavy discounts the games receive just to shift unsold stock at retailers.
              In the case of GTA they had to not only keep it selling for 10 years but also reduce the price AND sell them with shark cards worth more than the game itself to get whales to continue buying it.

                Also you're vastly overestimating now much cod sells, 17m is roughly a mid tier selling cod game while the best is 30m with Blops 1.

                The movies are fucking commercials for the games themselves, people shouldn't be butthurt over them. They act as a means to sell more games which in return means more games for me.

                They have said for some time that they want to explore anime series and movies. So unless the Mario movie bombs they probably will do exactly that. To some extent at least.

                But I doubt the recent studio they bought have anything to do with that. Their catalogue of work includes CGI for commercials and special effects assistance for games and TV and such. They've got no history of large scale movie or series production.
                While it is technically possible that Nintendo acquired them with the ambitions of whipping them into shape for such endeavours, I highly doubt it. It's much more plausible that Nintendo acquired them for the kind of work that they've already been doing. In order to strengthen (or make more efficient) their marketing apparatus, and or doing effects assistance for their other projects.

                The articles, and above all headlines written about that acquisition were just stupid. And had people jumping to conclusions based on pretty much clickbait.

    >Famitsu recently reported that Splatoon 2 sold 670,955 copies within the first three days of its launch, and that’s only counting the physical copies sold, including download cards and those sold in a bundle deal.

            For weeks leading up to Splatoon 1's release, some guy dared to claim that the game would fall flat on its head with no sales, and that he'd eat a bag of dicks and crows if it didn't.
            Of course he was never heard from again when the game ended up being a resounding success.

            When people started hating on Splatoon 2 prior to its release however, haters were asked if they too would eat a bag of dicks and crows if they were wrong. Which several of them dared to accept. Of course once again, none of them followed up on it.

            Here we are again with Splatoon 3. And people dared to question its power yet again, but no one ever dares to ever actually eat the dicks and crows.

Only to be caught loading up a fucking screenshot of Splatoon on the WiiU gamepad in a manner that made it abundantly clear that it was but a screenshot and not the actual game running, making it undeniable that the dude had never actually played Splatoon ever. Then doing the same shit for ARMS and even foolishly tried to do it against Smash?

          PS4 isn't going to save them. By late 2023 - early 2025, the PS4 is going to be complete irrelevant in terms of sales. And don't even get me started on the aging tech. Persona 6 wouldn't even be able to output 540p image quality lmfao.
          Their best bet is securing a Switch 2/pro dev-kit now and release P6 on PS5 / Switch 2 / Steam

    >half the thread is just hates sony because their western games actually became popular and can offer a counter to nintendo's own first party games like Zelda

    People simping for Japan studio never played their games in depth, it's no fucking surprise Sony cut the dead weight and rolled them into team asobi. Every time some retard wants to play Ape Escape I ask if they played Astrobot Rescue Mission or Astro's Playroom and they look at me with a deer in the headlights expression. Because both games do what Ape Escape already did but better and the people behind them have been with Studio japan since the early 2010's.

    Japan studio was at most a support studio throughout it's life and was known to be mismanaged worse than sega. The Japanese branch at sony was sega levels of retarded, but the new people in place can actually make good games now.

      there are more employees from Japan studio working at Monolithsoft (a Nintendo developer) than at team asobi, most of them went with Toyama to found a new studio
      in fact, i don't even know if any of them went to team asobi in the end
      also the astrobot "games" are tech demos at best, comparing them to Ape Escape is utterly ridiculous

        Ape escape was a fucking tech demo, did you even play 3 it's only a couple hours.

        Everything else was some stupid tech demo party game in the series after 3 released.

      spoiler alert: they were "just a support studio" for patapon as well, turns out its director and lead designers were japan studio, as were the people who got Rolito on board for the art direction. in the same vein demon's souls would never have gotten off the ground if it weren't for takeshi kajii

        Sony by the time of Bloodborne had larger international support studios and also opened new ones in countries like Malaysia. Japan studio became fucking redundant by PS4's mid life cycle and by 2017 pretty much had next to zero output compared to sony's other studios.

        Japan studio was doing less than what XDEV was and they had a harder time meeting goals due to their mismanagment problems. Their western branches had a heavier workload and had far more success in the same timeframe.

      It's an interesting case study for sure. But there are two big things you'd need to consider
      1. The game sold out in tons of stores, moving people to buy it physically instead.
      2. Splatoon is a game with dailies and shit, and people actually make the decision to buy it digitally purely to not having to swap the cartridges in and out every single day.

      So Splatoon is very likely to have an above average digital ratio. Hard to say by how much, but to some extent for sure.

        >Horizon speaks volumes of how much better they handle their IPs as compared to back then.

        They release the first entry against the Switch launch and BotW. And the second game against Elden Ring. This is not an attack at Horizon's quality, is just that in regards how Sony manages the IP, they are either to arrogant or to stupid.

          new IP sells over 20 million and got a full fledged sequel that routinely tops charts months after release.

            And it could had sold the double of that, if Sony would had been able to read the room at release. I can give them some slack on Zero Dawn, because everyone was catch out of guard by Nintendo's comeback, but double down against Elden Ring was just dumb. Forbidden West has been lucky that in the AAA front, things have been slow enough for people to look back now.

              It's already getting a third game and a VR game.

              The DLC for Forbidden West is supposed to be out in time for the Netflix TV series.

              Bundles is how Nintendo sells it's games. Or does Mario Kart, Animal Crossing and Splatoon somehow doesn't count anymore?

                Yeah bundles that also include the full price of the game, meanwhile sony is shifting to gaas because none of their full releases are profitable.

                Nintendo doesn't focus solely on consoles either, they have multiple mobile games out. This just means playstation branding on not just consoles games but mobile/f2p/Freemium games as well. I don't see the big deal, even microsoft has backed mobile games in China.

      Elden ring probably no, but if it has the same Japan:Global ratio as 2 it almost certainly outsold TLOU 2 by now.

          80% of a splatoon lobby is filled with Children, actual children. And I don't mean Fortnite 8th graders, I mean literally children who are under the age of 5.

      This.
      I don't know why they have to come out with the most farfetched lies to explain why they ignore the Switch to their investors.
      Why can't they man up and say "I hate this piece of shit tablet, I am not making nor porting games to the Switch, If you're not happy, go invest somewhere else" lol
