MHW PS4 bundle having no notable impact on hardware sales, is tragic for MHW, since it further proofs weak legs, despite relaunch.

Does the "proportion of digital sales" table mean that, given the last 2 quarters, we can now estimate for each new title an average of around 25% digital?

If I am reading this right, given Nintendo's historical digital sales, that is a significant improvement (which I expected for the Switch), and it can only go up.

I think many Nintendo fans will just sign up for the Classic games ....online play will be just a bonus for the non-hardcore players.

20 bucks a year is literally nothing .....even kids will be able to get those gift cards as presents to keep them afloat for another years.

ERA like always is making a big deal about the negatives, which is fair...but most regular customers will see that they are getting access to classic titles like Mario and Zelda + more sales for less than two bucks a month.

If the sales are somewhat split the subscription will pay for itself in a matter of months for for people who buy stuff on the eShop.
Yeah I mean $20 is pretty cheap and you get 20 classic games...look at NPD thread NES console #1 unit seller, also very handy having the cloud saves

Splatoon 2 is really a MP game, the SP is short - expansion added a large amount of story DLC but that was very recent and after the game sold huge
