At least they're making money on their way to doomsville.

The French seem to have taken to the Switch - meanwhile in Blighty people pretty much only have eyes for a FIFA/GTA/COD box.

It shouldn't be a surprise that Nintendo is the top selling publisher in France. They publish more games than anyone else. They're probably the top dog in most countries.

They publish more games than anyone else.

Not in 2017, 2016 or 2015 (I didn’t go any further back) they didn’t.

2018 results aren’t out. Funny if Reggie made a statement like yours you’d call him a liar.
