al europe data is fake. VGchartz made bold prediction at the start of the year regarding sony and when reality makes it impossible to happen they just dump the missing data in the euro charts to meet their needs. Remember, Europe has no data collection worth shit. But there's a simple rule that make them too obvious : the european market was never big enough to outself the USA by a large margin, on any system. Especially not in the current political climate.

People need to get rid of this outdated idea that hardware sales are going to be peaking in year 3/4 just because that's how it happened in gen 6 and earlier. The PS4 is only just reaching a true mass market price and it's getting lots of desirable games; it won't stop selling just because it's 5 years old.

Actually, this raises a good question. Without inserting any bias, what's the difference between games like FIFA and Madden, and games like Smash Brothers and Splatoon? If normalfags like all of them, then by extension it means all of them are bad. You can't cherrypick when you want their opinions to be relevant. You have to discard it all, or take the good with the bad.

I wonder why white people always try to vicariously live through someone else so often.
It explains all the basement dwelling "white supremacists" you see here on 4chan.

Generally speaking, there are two problems with sports games.
First is the yearly releases. Each year you get a new iteration of FIFA, Madden, NBA etc. that EA shits out and each one barely brings anything new to the game other than updates to the players and maybe some new modes, pretty much all shit that could be included in updates these days. It's pure greed that makes EA rerelease a full price game each year.
The other issue is they do a lot to try and make the games as realistic as possible. I'm not going to say that being a top FIFA player tdoesn't take a lot of skill, but I suspect the skill ceiling is usually a lot lower than for an equavalent game that isn't licensed. I think the comparison is most visible if you compare the EA sports UFC games to pretty much any other competently made fighting game on the market.

Depends on how much people want Smash, since Sony won't have another game in months. I fully expect to see PS4 numbers to see a huge spike with Black Friday. I'm a huge anti-Sony shitposter and even I bought one because it was only $200 and came with Spiderman.

People buy them, so the companies are just catering to their audience. This is why people defend Splatoon and Smash Bros and Xenoblade having DLC. "people like it, so it's not a bad practice." Same thing with paying for online, and that gets an additional defense via "others are doing it worse." So what's the difference?

>it's greedy that these games are put out at full prices
Sony and Nintendo are guilty of this too, though. Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze is STILL at full price more than 5 years later, and the port it got onto the switch is just as expensive. Saying "but it's a good game" is not an excuse. That's bias justifying company greed.

>The other issue is they do a lot to try and make the games as realistic as possible.
Again, it's what the consumerbase wants. I hate EA, but they're clearly pandering to an audience that will gladly buy their games. If this is a bad thing, then it should also be a bad thing when Nintendo panders to children with Pokemon Let's Go!. I just don't see the difference.
