This post actually got me more hyped than the Direct. Everyone seems to be happy with their sales. Konami with Bomberman, Capcom with Street Fighter, Bandai Namco with Dragonball Xenoverse 2, Ubisoft with Mario and Rabbids, 2K with NBA, Rockstar with LA Noire (Switch made up 21% of its sales just 4% lower than the Xbox one) and now EA with Fifa. Thats not even mentioning all the indie success stories everywhere. I'm glad third parties are happy cause that only means more support in the future.

It get Home console hardware sales in the West, Handheld console hardware sales in Japan, and console game sales ratio worldwide. That's literally the best kind of selling power possible from each kind of consoles, all in one package. That's crazy. :P

And on top of that, it seems to appeal better to all demographics than previous consoles
