The hardware numbers...

We' ve fucking time-travelled, yes? /MalcolmTucker

Amazing results for Dragon Quest too, close to the record debut for the series no?

Awesome week! Wish we could see more like this where all (living) consoles are doing fantastic. Dragon Quest really is a force in Japan.

That's gotta be one of the best non holiday hardware weeks in a while. Weird circumstances (juggernauts released for 3 consoles across 2 weeks) but still! I'll take it!

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Zelda and Arms are still not bumping with the hardware. Both should see some increase during Obon though. Mario Kart should benefit the most though.
The likelihood of Switch owners owning a 3DS or PS4 is quite high...and both of those systems did get DQXI this week - the fact that those Zelda sales are keeping constant is quite impressive. There will be enough weeks for Zelda sales to rise again....the DQXI launch week is not one of them, there is just so much time/money people can spend per week.

Guys these threads have prediction stuff every month. We are talking about people being wrong about them. I don't understand how it is a derail. It is just funny how some were jumping at the dude for predicting 1 million for PS4 version.

3DS: "Get used to it! I'm going nowhere!"

Feels like it. They've not talked or acknowledged it since that original statement that it was coming. Not the one they took back but the second one I think. No word on what it looks like, which version it's based on, etc. Nothing. Then again there has been nothing else from Square Enix proper announced for the Switch save fro Dragon Quest X which is a port that was on the Wii and Wii U. At this point I would assume nothing is coming while SE continues to be all in on the PS4.

Someone made a prediction, others told him he's going to be wrong. Turns out the prediction was wrong after all. I'm not sure what you're doing tbh.

By the way, the DQX beta runs pretty well on the Switch. Although I don't like how the browser login page makes me type my password in every time.
Pretty standard for MMOs these days and probably the smart thing for a game on a handheld device that could be easily lost or stolen.

Some very nice tables. Switch line touching the 3DS line and PS4 distancing itself from PS3 are nice developments.

So much to deconstruct
Splatoon is the best selling Nintendo game on Switch
Splatoon more popular than Mario and Zelda
DQXI dose better on 3DS than PS4
DQXI sold really well
Splatter games on the rise

Great numbers all around. Time for some to eat crow regarding PS4 version sales of dq ;)

http://m.neogaf.com/showthread.php?t=1358142&page=11
This was brought up in the other thread and I'm confused how it is being presented. The guy being presented as 'owning MC thread people' was literally wrong, it's under a million? And anyone adding bullshit like 'it's only two days' and 'plus digital' should realise those factors would also inflate all other games' launches/sales if applied, to varying degrees.

Brussels, Belgium.
142k consoles sold, that's incredible for a system 6 years in its lifespan. Not only I was expecting half that number, but I also thought PS4 would overtake it. It's really a system in a different universe.

Do we have any indication if Nintendo will continue to deliver higher shipments than 20-30k before Splatoon launch?

Um, opening week usually implies its first MC/Famitsu tracking, not actual 7 days of data.
I think he means that games usually have 4 days or tracking. Does Dragon Quest games usually launch on Saturdays? Or did we have the release date back in April?

He predicted 1 million OW on PS4, which didn't happen. It's not really a great post to go back and point at to say how wrong GAF is all the time.

Can this joke be dumpstered at this point? It's seriously been beaten to death and then put through a wood chipper.
If Media Create GAF could handle the infamous Squid Legs image for over a month after Splatoon came out then a few ARMS/LEGS joke posts are child's play in comparison lol

I asked something similar, but it seems we just have to wait and see. They could've bumped production, but watching these next couple of weeks should give an indicator
