Is BLOPS II a record for game disappearing from the charts and then resurging with zero remaster or new edition, it just picked back up again?

It can only be a monster if they don't promptly discontinue it. If they do, it'll be a fluky blip for a few months and then vanish into thin air, never to be seen again.

Also, more quantifiable proof against "nobody plays BC games"

Clearly people still love COD. Activision just needs to put out one that hits the right notes

A port of a year old game, with two days of tracking, sold the best last month. Fucking incredible. Really underscores how unwanted the Wii U was. Not only that but a discontinued console at #2? Nintendo walks away this month straight up trailblazing.

A great showing by Persona 5 as well.

Mario Kart 8 did 460,000 physically. Both it and P5's rankings on here are physical only, so probably 300-400k?

EDIT: Atlus said 1.5 million at the beginning of April but that probably includes digital. it suggests 550k within Japan and then the remaining 900k worldwide. P5 probably did 500-600k including digital for NA and maybe 300-400k without it if I had to guess.

I get what you're trying to say and I agree as it's still within the first two months of the consoles launch.

But Switch doesn't look to be slowing down in this first year. Nintendo clearly has a steady stream of first party content to keep people interested and it's looking like it's working. They are selling all they are making.

Holy shit Zelda is doing mighty fine. It probably already outsold Skyward Sword by now.

Onwards to the 10 million+ lifetime sales achievement in 2-3 years;)

Persona being second and first on ps4 is very cool Japanese games back on top baby!

Mariokart well it's MK you know they always sell like crazy + having MK 8 portable is insane.

Probably didn't sell or make what they wanted. It might be in the top 5 but that doesn't mean it did well for them. Ya know?

AAA video games, and I mean the actual AAA ones (usually $50-$100+ million development budget alone, with most in the $80-$100+ million bracket), are a very harsh market.

But the core concern is that whatever they release 3-5 years from now, if based directly on Andromeda's formula, would not make money, even if Andromeda most likely will make a reasonable to good profit, thus the need for hiatus and figuring out what to do next.

To be fair, the PS2 was still selling great in 2008. Thing had legs for years. I believe there were even a few months in 2009 where it outsold the PS3.

No you're right, it is quite low. If the Switch wasn't so damn supply constrained, it would be concerning for new hardware in its 2nd month. Worth keeping in mind though too that April is typically a pretty dead month for hardware. Neither the PS4 nor XB1 have ever sold 280k in April.

Good to see Nintendo stopped making the NES Mini. It was never meant to be big profit business. Now they're making the SNES Mini and it'll probably cost $80-$100 and will make insane money.

When a niche Japanese game is outselling you, then yeah you put the franchise on ice.

Even with online subscription fees, it's extremely hard for Nintendo switch's profits to outgun both Wii's and DS's during its best era.

To really return to Nintendo like profits is to embrace mobile and whale'd the willing.

Yeah this is kinda low, could do better but

The Nintendo Switch outsold PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for the second month in a row. Nintendo still seems like it is selling every Switch it makes instantaneously, with most people reporting that they still haven’t seen one on store shelves.

Still largely supply constrained.

I would expect a SNES Classic to be more expensive and/or fewer games to begin with based off the more intricate nature of SNES games over NES games. Not sure high sales of the NES Classic would be a factor in that.

Lego City Undercover being #13 on the overall charts but only showing up on Switch's charts (at #3)...does that mean that Switch's sales likely carried LCU to chart at all?

It's interesting to compare the Switch and overall charts. MK8D was #1 on both, Zelda was #2 on Switch and #3 overall, and LCU was #3 on Switch and #13 overall. The differences between Switch and the overall charts really grows with LCU after being pretty similar.
