im guessing you missed the joke?


I think he misses a lot of jokes.

being the cheerleader often hides your logical side. dont go for the bro points, your arguments are much better
Playstation stats. 96 games played, 3000+ hrs in 2018. Maybe my ol lady was right...
Remember when Astral Chain launched low and everyone said, “it’s because it’s sold out, just wait!” Well, ok, here we are. Two weeks on the market and 41k sales to show for it. It dropped over 70% and was outsold by the over 9 month old Smash this week.

Yeah, this is exactly what I was afraid of. Japan continues to perpetuate the “Nintendo is just Mario and Pokémon” adage. Unless this game has miraculous legs or is blowing up digitally, it’s going to go down as a disappointment in Japan.

Well, there’s Splatoon’s breakout success in Japan to consider.

Launched low? Over 30,000 units sold for a new IP, not counting digital, which could have been stimulated by the vouchers, is considered low? Second place in debut week (And the game that beat it then already dropped off the Top 10 if that counts for something)? Huge sales in other countries?

Not every game has to sell CoD, GTA or Mario Kart numbers to be considered a success, dood. No offense intended.

Do you think when it's sold out they'll have that amount agian ready on shelves one week after? Perhaps you're not qualified to be talking about sales.

How can it be a disappointment when it was SOLD OUT?

Disrupting topics to talk about users is acceptable. Calling it out is not allowed.

This is the exact same logic people had last week and we saw a massive drop off here. You’re banking on the assumption that there are tens of thousands of people out there awaiting the game to be restocked.

41k for a game of Astral Chain’s scope is a disappointment. Even in Japan. There isn’t any debate to be had there whatsoever.

Nowhere within the vicinity of being remotely correct. I bought Astral Chain day one and I’m loving every second of the game. I’m rooting for its success hard, but we’re straight up lying to ourselves if we act like these Japanese sales through two weeks aren’t worrying.

Wow, really? How can you be this clueless? If it is SOLD OUT, then it means that it exceeded the expectations of the publisher. Because if they expected it to sell more than what they shipped, they would have shipped more, but they didn't. It is SOLD OUT because it sold MORE than the publisher thought it would sell.

You can't possibly think that it is "worrying" that it sold MORE than what the publisher expected it would sell.

There isn’t any debate to be had there whatsoever.


That's right. There isn't any debate to be had because you're clueless and incapable of comprehending simple logic.
