      It barely did better than Kuro no Kiseki II which is a very budget Falcom game that they still admitted was an underperformer at 50k units.

      If that game is an underperformer at 50k, then a One Piece game doing similar numbers is catastrophic.

        There were only 2 choices down here either pirate or ignore, our economies are beyond fucked up and we don't have disposable income to go on a vidya spree, the few of us who have enough disposable income for vidya are quite few, even when In the past decade the growth has been very noticeably exponential is still far from being a profitable market.

        Also SE has retarded pricing down here, Only Sega and Capcom do correct regional pricing.

    Why do Microsoft continuingly refuse to ship enough series X

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Looks like Xbox is done and the dream to surpass the 360 is just a dream.

      They are undershipping both Xboxes into Japan. There's a ton of bitching on Japanese vidya twitter that there's simply not enough Xboxes being shipped in and while you can just walk in and get a PS5 now. Getting a Series X is near impossible because Microsoft ain't shipping them. There is a genuine demand for the consoles that Microsoft aren't meeting. Which is kinda hilarious that after no one wanted a bone last gen, they literally cannot ship the Series consoles into Japan fast enough.

      Makes me wonder if Microsoft expected their anime and vtuber promotions for the Series and Game Pass to do gangbusters but then pulled a Sony and essentially gave up on Japan when it didn't immediately reach the explosive expectations they had.

                Bought a Switch because of moero crystal and seven pirate (Steam is a decent service but are ultimately cuck for randomly banning lewd games).

Toei wouldn't budge unless they accepted a package deal which included One Piece. Obligated to try and make the extra money they had to pay back they butchered OP to get it on TV and torpedoed the series in the west for years.

            kek absoultely delusional. If One piece can't mog Dragon ball and Naruto, anime and manga that ended for literal decades (or nearly a decade in naruto case). It isn't going to be more popular when it fucking ENDS. something ending means interest will die down not go up.

              When one piece ends it will be a cultural phenomenon that will be known around the world. Interest definitely goes up when a series is ending but it's popularity after it ends entirely depends on how good the series and especially the end Is. It's why naruto fell of a cliff but dbz is still popular

      We are talking Nintendo here, so no one fucking knows. The backwards compatibility record with Nintendo is solid enough, unless they make a drastic change on formats from one console to the next.

      Pretty good imo. GBA was b/c with GBC, DS with GBA, 3DS with DS, Wii with GC, Wii U with Wii. The only reason they didn’t do b/c with the switch is because they couldn’t use discs with the handheld form factor (that and no one owned a Wii U so it wasn’t a real sticking point)

There's a ton of bitching on Japanese vidya twitter that there's simply not enough Xboxes being shipped in and while you can just walk in and get a PS5 now. Getting a Series X is near impossible because Microsoft ain't shipping them. There is a genuine demand for the consoles that Microsoft aren't meeting. Which is kinda hilarious that after no one wanted a bone last gen, they literally cannot ship the Series consoles into Japan fast enough.

    After several weeks boosed by the Pokemon OLED where the switch was surprisingly matching last year's sales, switch sales are falling below again.

    Last week
    2023: 250k
    2022: 393k
    This week
    2023: 74k
    2022: 148k

    Nintendo can stop the bleeding to some extent this year by putting out a few more special edition OLEDs, but the switch will still probably fall from about 19m in 2022 to about 13-14m in 2023 down from 28m in 2020.

    2023 is the end of the switch life. Whether they want to or not there will be a new console by 2024. There is just very little juice still left to squeeze out of this fruit.

        That didn't come out until the end of January, come on man.
        Also, switch sales were falling heavily before the pokemon OLED too. It was only a brief period during the Pokemon OLED sales period where sales stabilized. And the thing is, this gets harder and harder to replicate. As more people buy the OLED the market for that revision starts to shrink, eventually the OLED will also saturate the market.

          The console has been out for 6 years and just had record breaking game sales. Yes, we will eventually get a new console and no not because the switch is some kind of failure. It is just hitting market saturation.

              This works only with indie games and some lackluster and dimishing series. It can hurt a Brand when it actually want a grow; Choo Choo Monopoly was actually dead at 2010 and Konami actually want to throw the series until Nintendo save it. Soul Calibour was at that time a growing new Fighting series, and the PS2 exclusivity deal only drove away any growth Namco saw with SC II

            I am(or rather was) a huge SC fan and yes Namco killed that franshise just as it was about to hit massively mainstream range with crossovers we've only seen rivaled in smash many years later for huge hype.
            The most hilarious is how they killed it in multiple ways. Not just sales itself but also killed the game in an instant in arcades by selling out to sony so hard that the ps2 version released before the arcade version, which lead to the game having more bugs than usual which meant disliked by console and arcade competitive communities(there was still big overlap big then) at the same time. Furthermore the character creation was introduced in this which is now all the sparse leftover normies who stil buy this rubbish care about for 2 days.
            I fully blame Harada. You can not convince me thathe guy wasn't seething hard about the daughter spinoff of Tekken that fixed all its conceptual problems and was full multiplat(-PC) was about to outgrow it.

                My prediction is that they use several special edition OLED models to blunt the damage and sell about 30% less, resulting in around 13 million sales in 2023. 2024 on the other hand would be the disaster, but I don't think Nintendo is actually retarded so I expect them to launch a new console by early 2024.

      Mind you, not sure the others, but when I mention "Switch 2" I refer to a successor, not an update. It's a mess, but in general out of memes and rumors, most got the idea of calling a Switch Update the "Switch Pro", while secretly fearing it would be called "New Nintendo Switch". Right now, after five years, I think most people it's now unironically moving the Goal Post to a fully new Hardware. Thing is, I think most if not all of us want the idea of what the Switch is to continue, just better. So, for a lack of a better name, now the extra official name for some is "Switch 2"... while secretly still fearing it will be called "New Nintendo Switch".

      You say 25 studios but where the fuck are the games? What exclusive does it even have except a shitty Halo game that barely looks any more interesting than the latest sonic game?

        19 of those 25 studios were purchased in the last 4 years, which is less than a modern dev cycle, especially factoring in covid WFH delays

      Their games output has been kinda poor in terms of quantity, it doesn't help that THE marquee game for the console Halo Infinite ended up being a bit messy.

        Fun fact

        MS wanted Halo Infinite to become their "Destiny" game but they fucked up the game so hard, that even devs are currently calling out 343i for their incompetence and the contractor bs.

        Ironically, Sony now owns Destiny which is one of the biggest fps multiplayer right now

      Even in the face of Walt's sociopathic rat, Pokemon is legitimately the one franchise to achieve the title of 'Too Big to Fail'. Its vidya quality matters not, nor does the quality of the design used for merchandise, let alone what type of merchandise. The success of Pocket Monsters is too monumental to be stopped in our own lifetimes; it's a legitimate empire retards will defend with their body and souls, and there's nothing anybody can do to stop it. The majority are said retards anyway.

        Well, I own a game and hardware from every generation since Gen 3 with Emerald/Fire Red(plus my old Red cart on my GBC), meaning that the big draw of BUYING pokemon was transferring my collection or even individual pokemon thru the previous gens all the way to the bank, and be able to pretty much build any party I want. Dexit really killed this drive and I haven't purchased any games or even renewed my Bank membership since. I've been supporting these chucklefucks financially for over 20 years, and that was the big reason why I chose DS and 3DS over PSP and Vita in the first place. Now, I will never buy a Switch or other Nintendo console, as I have no need: If I want to play one of the new shitty pokemon games(why would I?) I might as well do so for free, on an emulator, if I can't transfer my pokemon anymore? Sure, SOME pokemon are allowed, but now they started deleting moves as well, meaning that if I breed a pokemon in one gen, all these moves will be gone when transferred, so what is the POINT? Might as well download a rom and then either play the game normally or PKHex this bitch up like everybody else does anyways.
        Not sure if long term profits are worth it if they're dropping long time fans, seems like Ubisoft thinking to me, they also thought they were too big to fail and look at them now. Nevertheless, one less franchise to worry about, I guess I am finally free of nintendo consoles and can game on PC in peace. The only Pokemon game I am even remotely interested in is Arceus, but only if somebody mods out all the morons, so I am not in any rush to really play it right away
        Still, it really is hilarious looking at this murphy's law happening right in front of me, Ganker would joke about this very state of the franchise for years, but this is now the reality: YOU WILL BUY IT ANYWAYS. Not even departure of Masude can save Pokemon anymore, I doubt it's quality can ever be restored with the current consoomer culture

      It's not gonna happen. Switch will hit 120m after the holidays. 2023 is on track for 13-14m sales, let's go with 14. 134m after 2023. Nintendo then probably launches the next console in 2024 so sales should absolutely collapse down to like 6m, so 140m. Here's where the issue comes in. The PS2 kept selling after the PS3 came out because the ps3 was massively more expensive and had no games. The Switch 2 is just gonna be a better switch, and probably not much more expensive, so switch sales are going to utterly die.

      I predict 145m lifetime sales for the switch, compared to 158m for the ps2 and 154m for the DS.

                revenue and profit are not the same. sony's profit was down 40 something % last time I checked

                NPD kinda proves that it is losing ground overall, not beating the PS5 in Q4 and likely going forward in unit sales and dollar sales means the Switch has probably lost its dominance in the West permanently. You might see a spike for Zelda in May but that's likely it for boasting about NPD numbers.

                Not only outsold the ps5, outsold it by a high enough margin to catch up to the ps5's lead it had built up over the entire year and then pass it.

              NPD kinda proves that it is losing ground overall, not beating the PS5 in Q4 and likely going forward in unit sales and dollar sales means the Switch has probably lost its dominance in the West permanently. You might see a spike for Zelda in May but that's likely it for boasting about NPD numbers.

    Well I guess that's it for anything landing on Japan shores for anything physical. Forespoken will flop so the next that has a remote chance is pic related and then Isshin Like a Dragon the week after and then Wo Long but that's a month away. Isshin probably has the biggest chance but it's a remake so not sure if many people will want it based on that alone and Ryza 3 is coming out 2 days later. Realistically, the next game that has a chance to break out is RE4R late March.

        That's not what I am saying, I'm saying Isshin will get overshadowed by Ryza 3, it's likely the bestseller that week.

        Wild Hearts will bomb in Japan because it isn't on PS4 and will bomb in the West because all the Xbox and PS players who would be interested will now be on MH Rise ports.

        I'm not saying it won't. Hell, I have no idea if EA is even really doing physical in Japan, the most I've seen is on digital stores and realistically, it won't make an impact but after Forespoken, it's the earliest game that might chart not on the Switch. And not on PS4 is the theme this year in the rest of the world, cross-gen is largely over.

    Fire Emblem Three Houses opened at 145000.

    I'm guessing Engage does 160000-180000. Maybe Nintendo announces it's sold a million worldwide by the end of February. It took Three Houses around 9 months to reach 500k in Japan so I'm guessing maybe half a year? Nintendo's spring/golden week sales and summer sales should put it over the top.

    Of course, the real performance to look for will be how it does in the US and the long crawl to Three Houses' 4 million.
