I don't know if you should be happy that Let's Go is a top selling game.

I cannot wait to see what happens in the most important month of the year (December)'

Maybe for non-gamers like you, but for ACTUAL gamers...

"Selling at a loss."

There's a reason why Burger King was willing to sell Whoppers for a penny. If you think Sony is taking a loss on $200 PS4s, then you are the sort of target people in marketing are looking for.

Nintendo was Japan's richest company last year, remember (a fact that probably hasn't changed this year)..? They know what they're doing. They could have easily smoked the competition by discounting their units. But they are greedy money hoarders.

They smoked the competition financially instead. On top of this, they sold the most hardware to the most people both years between the two classic editions and the 3DS. Nintendo made $250 million in - what was it - a week, or just 3 days..? And lastly, they likely sold the most hardware worldwide in the last couple months as well as the current one.

When exactly did the goalposts switch (no pun) to solely North American numbers as opposed to worldwide? My guess is when it made Sony fans feel warm and gooey inside.

it was a npd topic, so people talked NA. also $250m isnt much in the grand scheme, since hardware sales dont bring in the most money, but software and services and all of that ibring in the big money. so what nintendo won profit wise, or whether they sold the most worldwide remains to be seen, thats why its not being argued

How much profit one makes on hardware depends on the company and the business model. As we know, the Switch is a portable device sold on the sly at $300. Nintendo had a couple dozen more manufactured last year because it is cheaper to manufacture in bulk. They are laughing to the bank charging what they are charging for the Switch and throwing up the confident middle-finger by not discounting for BF.

What brings in the most money for one manufacturer doesn't exactly apply to the business model for all three.

Most profits never come from the hardware, i dont think anyone was actually expecting a price cut for switch, its already at a competitive price vs the other systems, and its not even 2 years old yet. Next year there will likely be one, or more of a bundle.

Nintendo isnt a fan of good system deals most of the time though, even wiiu barely got deals

It’s good that the switch is selling more this month compared to master year.

The year on year increase for December will be huge.


Indeed. If the Switch is selling more than last year, this month may sell way more than last year, and the Switch will easily hit its 20 million sales goal.

console is selling at such a huge loss and their beloved Sony is on life support.

The company has been making tons, what do you mean? The console hasnt sold at a loss since its first year, and barely did then. Is this one of those "manchildren" post talking trash about things they dont seem to know about? You look just as foolish as the people youre calling out.

Sony’s gaming division alone generates several times more revenues and profits than all of Nintendo. This is easily confirmed by reading their financial statements.

Of course, it’s typical Nintendo fanboy anti-Sony trolling.
