That's nice, I guess.

I'm not so surprised by Mario Kart selling well tho. It's a popular, Mario-branded franchise with broad appeal on a system that as of yet has very few quality racing games ('cept Fast RMX, but that's far more niche than Mario Kart)

And a fair number of people who bought it may not even know it's a port, nor do I think most of them would particularly care. Remember that many, perhaps most, people who play games are nowhere near as informed as forumgoers like us.

And? Is there a point you want to make? An opinion you want to give? I mean, there is a reason that threads that are "Here is a link. Discuss." get closed.

right. i forgot that positive Nintendo threads weren't allowed on this website.
Oh, it was positive? I couldn't tell as there were only numbers without context. My mistake.

What positivity? You've given a set of numbers with no context or commentary and seem to be expecting us to hop on Ninty's junk because of it.

Nintendo doing well shouldn't be celebrated. Nintendo doing poorly shouldn't be celebrated either. Game publishers are corporations. They don't give a damn about you or me as anything more than walking piggy banks. Learn to be a fan of something without making it your identity.

The numbers provide the context.

In 1 year the switch has sold 4 million more units than the Wii U managed in it's entire life and will probably overtake the Gamecube's lifetime sales this year. This shows that Nintendo chose the right direction with the switch after the Wii U's rather abject failure.

In that same year Nintendo have had several first party titles sell more than 5 million copies. Agains this is good news since they struggled to sell software for the Wii U and even the Wii had relatively poor uptake on a lot of their 'proper' games.

So it's all good news for Nintendo, although I'm still not terribly interested in the Switch as a device it's evidently gone down well with the wider world.

The numbers posted above state nothing about the Wii U sales and such. You've added that context yourself. You also keep saying "good news." Why is it good news that an extremely wealthy multinational corporation is now slightly wealthier? Neither you nor I gain anything from that.

Also, if the OP had included text like your post in it, none of these complaints (at least the ones from me) would have been made.

... so, is that good or bad?

All I know about either of those games (are they games?) mentioned is that the former seems to have a lot of waifus in it, or somesuch.

there is a Shenmue video link to click on.

OP claims he doesn't have to buy a dreamcast now.

ok? why should people care if he needs to buy a dreamcast or not?
the game is coming to PS4 and Xbox One now, is this good? is this bad?
Where is the incentive for discussion?

When you narrow it down, no there wasn't much difference between a thread like that and this thread, but of course that type of thread is only not ok when i'm the one that's made the thread.
