    First, Marco Pierre White brought French cuisine to Britain and now, the Japanese brought an obsolete device to France. Seems like a fair deal to me.

    Everyone I knows who could be classified a casual got a switch to play pokemon on.
    I think it's due to the aggressive marketings they've done with the past 3 pokemon games on switch, which I don't remember seeing as much during the 3ds era.

    attach rate of 50% for Mario Kart is mostly due to French streamers being more social than others and organising tourneys all the time so the game is still relevant for the local gaming culture.

        French streamers don't shill the game, they just enjoy playing it together. It's something other countries don't seem to have imo, a comunity of streamers, people that come and go on each other chat all the time, and get together regularly for firendly multiplayer instead of competitive.

          Yeah, I said shill for the buzzword, but exposition, and the feeling of belonging to a group does wonder as you said

          >console that is cheaper and isn't out of stock is selling more than the other 2
          It outsold PS4 by 1 million despite PS4 having heavy price cuts
          It outsold Wii despite Wii being cheaper

          PS4 and wii are really old consoles, also wii being the trashiest since unlike switch it only has a few games that aren't good

              I'm saying that the comparison with the ps4 and wii shouldn't be because switch is not from the same generation of consoles

                Switch launched closer to PS4 than it did PS5 though

                Roughly 40 months vs 44 months

                What do you propose we compare it to?

                really? I felt like it's a fairly new console, especially since it keeps receiving "new" games compared to wii and ps4. My bad then

                it in fact is closer, but it's closer to release halfway through the PS4 generation anyway.
                regardless, the switch was competing against the PS4, and is now competing against the PS5, so I don't see any issue in comparing it to either

                Really? I thought the PS4 still got plenty of games, such as the GOTY Elden Ring and even games slated for 2023 such as Resident Evil 4 Remake. My bad then.

                Aren't these games (or at least the ones that are supposed to be truly next gen) supposed to be the last ones? Since they're amputating the games to be on the last gen? (like for Halo Infinite, cyberpunk...)

                studios are reluctant to make ps5 exclusives considering it sold wiiU tier so far, so projects are at least dual releases with ps 4 and 5 right now. Even the recent GOW is just a ps4 game with its day one ps5 upgrade

          Cool, here they only play shooter games on pc, fifa or some "pc only" game. They rarely play together and even more rarely try anything other than the usual game.

      When the French gov announced the program to give young adults free 250 euro for art and culture because they though they would consume french entertainment, it backfired when the early 20 somethings bought their manga in droves.

        to be frank nothing is done in school to promote french theatre or litterature (no, forcing middle schoolers to read les misérables will not make them enjoy litterature). And I won't talk about the absolute state of french cinema.

      Europe has always been a PC-centered market. Like in the 90s, I doubt more than a 500 people had a PSX in my country with mine being one of the first 10 in the country. Yet all of my peers had been PC players since kids because of the prevelance of LAN places.
