      1. It’s true. Xbox DOne is shit and better off given away to another company to change it into a fucking streaming box like Apple TV the way dumbass Microsoft use to try it on to.

        1. Nintendo Tetrarch Quadramus-NX

          >>>No, Xboxes and Xbots must be erased from existence completely, no exceptions>>>

          1. Never said they should be rebranded. I said it should be changed to that so it won’t contaminate gaming again and let other streaming boxes like Apple TV finish it off like iPod did with Zune. lol

            1. Nintendo Tetrarch Quadramus-NX

              >>>It shouldn’t change to anything, it should just destroyed along with its zealots whenever the opportunity arises, at long last will I finally be satisfied>>>

                  1. That just makes him a quitter! Until he pledges loyalties to someone else, he’s just a loner! ;D
                    You can’t call people who say “I’m done with Nintendo!” A traitor so long as they keep pissing off their fanbase and screwing us over. We’re all going to say those words from one time to another. But most of us end up sticking with Nintendo. :]

                    1. Nintendo Tetrarch Quadramus-NX

                      >>>No, if you’re mad at the empire but still like them in the end you don’t say I’m done with it, you say “I’ll strike until they fix some things first”>>>

      1. Actually, it’s last gen since mostly everything is still coming from last gen built. WTF is this “next gen”? Oh yeah, it’s nothing more than a false wet dream PR idiots forced into millions of tiny skulls for their buck.

    1. No, Japan just loves their homemade Video Game companies, like Nintendo and Sony. Also, why so sad? If you like the Xbox One, like I like the Wii U, then sales should bother you very much. As long as the console that you’re supporting sells enough to for the company to justify supporting it, then that’s all that should matter. The Wii U is selling enough for Nintendo to still support it with great First Party games and that’s all that I, as a consumer, can ask for.

  1. Wow Wii U is still at 7k too bad. But at least Xenoblade Chronicles 3D is pretty high up there! I have a good feeling Xenoblade Chronicles X i gonna be at the top in Japan when it releases. Not sure about USA since it’s a COD dick sucker country when it comes to games.

    1. I’m more worried about the U.K. Partly because I live there, but mostly because Xenoblade isn’t an FPS, a game that includes shooting and/or extreme violence or a Sports game and it’s from Nintendo, so I predict that Xenoblade Chronicles X will make the chart 3 or 4 times, then drop off completely…

      You do realize that Nintendo shall still be around long after Sony play station and xbox are gone right? Nintendo is gaming.


    2. Nintendo Tetrarch Quadramus-NX

      >>>They’ll be the godfather of nothingness when we decide it’s time to stop giving you children time anymore>>>

    3. Good for PS4. Hopefully the NX is powerful enough to whip the PS5’s ass in sales. Bring it on!!!!

      1. U guys r funny. Now its about NX making it. It will not once nintendo gets into mobile. That will be there focus as they see the money and they r a public company investors will want more once they get a taste.

        As time goes on more and more ip will be on mobile and less and less exclusive.

        Its just business

  2. what on earth are they playing on ps4 jesus even japans gone stupid

    theres nothing on ps4 for the japan market

      1. Yep. Cling to hope. Nintendo had a fluke w the wii. They got mom and dad. And it will not happen again. Nintendo will be like all other consoles since n64. Around 20m if lucky

  3. Sweet! Great for nintendo! Still begging for a Super Mario RPG remaster =( happy with the games now of course
