- "March 2017 will go down in history books as the month Nintendo broke records.The Nintendo Switch had the biggest hardware launch for a Nintendo platform and the second biggest launch for any video game platform since 1995, the time NPD began tracking this category."
While RTS do sell better on PC, because it was exclusive to the Windows 10 store, I doubt it sold any significant number on there. The majority of copies there will be from people who bought the Xbox copy. The upcoming Steam release will garner it most of its PC sales.
I guess so. It'll be interesting to see how it goes in the coming months though once there's more options like Splatoon, Kart, Minecraft, etc. It just doesn't seem like it's going to light the world on fire or anything.
Interesting that on GAF there was a thread talking about what Switch games people were most likely going to get, and the most common prioritization was Zelda -> 1-2 Switch -> Bomberman - which is exactly what shows up here. Bomberman really benefited from being a launch game and I bet 1-2 Switch probably did too.
Looking at older reports the 4 million might have been for sold through. Their older reports on RE6 elaborated on what was sold and what was shipped. The last number we got was 3 million. So they might have shipped another 1 million in march. Maybe. But it's not looking hopeful. The game fell off in Japan.
You might be right, but I thought when comonies made financoak projections it will generally shipped, not sold. As for RE7 I think the lack of replay value may have hurt it more tHan the switch in perspective. No mercenaries mode or any equivalent mode meant was I done with it after one playthrough. Short single player games with no MP component don't sell exceptionally well these days.
Open world is not a genre. GR is a shooter, Nier and Horizon are action RPGs and Zelda is an adventure game. It is definitely varied, as it also has games and new IP like For Honor and 1-2-Switch, as well as games like MLB, Resi 7 and Bomberman.
Ubi is doing crazy well btw. GR, For Honor and R6 are all massive hits.
