Fair enough.

Sharing digital can’t really have a negative effect on them as it will help their games chart higher.
That data can help them when times are good but can also lead to negative articles on the down swing.

I agree with you they should share but I get why they don’t. It’ll just take some more convincing from people like Mat.

Am I correct in reading there that Splatoon 2 is kinda disappointing in Europe? I mean comparisons to Japan are obviously futile but if it is preforming notably worse than even NA then that is a shame.

Maybe the discount price of Splatoon on Wii U did them a bit of damage for the brand in the long run..?
Splatoon's split Japan/rest of the world was like 35%
Splatoon 2 is at 43% (the percentage went down in the last quarter, it was at 45% at December)

Then of course Splatoon launched at €40 in Europe and Splatoon 2 at €60.

But the legs in the rest of the world are strong.

Q2 - 2.05m
Q3 - 0.65m
Q4 - 0.71m

It sold more from January to March than it did from October to December.

One thing i love about Nintendo, is how usuallythey are so much open about releasing numbers. They have their own site with a lot of public data, and every quarter they show some nice information which is very good to see.

This thing about digital is honestly kinda unexpect from Nintendo. Hope they'll change that, because in 2018 digital sales are just way too important, and is just gonna rise in 2019.

Activision make alot of money form Just Crash....

And the Crew 2 I thought it's Flop and didn't sale well
Being at the top doesn’t necessarily mean it’s doing good, The Crew 2 opening in the UK was very low compared to the first game and it still charted at number 2.

When they did PR statements for NPD, they shared shipped + digital for some games. I miss those days :(

Do negative articles impact sales? I'm pretty sure the majority of gamers don't care about video game journalism

Crash Switch Physical > Xbox One Physical + Digital
So Mario Kart and Mario Odissey physical is higher than GoW physical + digital across Europe? I didn't expect that. I'm guessing also that total FIFA 18 would be quite higher in Switch than in Xbox One seeing that it is top 3 in almost every eShop. I guess the list is units based right?

Also Splatoon 2 is doing really well, even if it's not the absurd japanese numbers, it is one of the must haves of the console and it still hangs around the top 20 a year after release.. It's a pity Nintendo isn't sharing their digital numbers because all of the titles would be climbing quite a few spots for sure.

Switch still killing it in France. When the big hitters come this holiday I think the switch will sky rocket in sales.

Now that's more what I was expecting from the Crash Switch SKU. Looks like UK is once again the outlier.
Not sure how that is a surprise, we know XBO is pretty much dead outside of the UK. If anything I'm surprised there are two Xbox SKUs in the European top 10 at all.

Nintendo kinda has to release more data than Sony/MS because gaming is their only business and so shareholders have to see how they are doing. They also used to release even more data than they do nowadays. We got regional quarterly hardware charts during their financial briefings that also had MS/Sony numbers. It was useful way to get European sales numbers.

Eeeeh...



It slipped one spot in the charts this week (because of a new entry), how is it "drifting down" the charts?
We don't really know what the gaps between entries are, so maybe it is dropping at a fast rate but the gap between 5 and 6 is just too big to be crossed with one week's drop.

So now that we know that the UK is the outlier regarding Crash and that in Europe as a whole Crash is doing much better on Switch I'm assuming that it's gonna sell quite a lot here. Once again more proof that the UK should not be the first call for how games are doing worldwide. I think Crash May do well enough in the USA. Will probably open a bit higher than Europe at any rate. Apparently it's not popular in Japan though. I don't think it has any chance to hit the 4 million that's PS4 Has sold but I don't expect it to on a userbase a quarter of the size. I'd bet it's a million seller when all is said and done and I hope that, that is enough for Activision.
