PostSubject: 3DS software sales up 89%   Tue Oct 16, 2012 2:09 pm

Quote :
Nintendo 3DS XL continued to impact the video game market in September as overall sales of Nintendo 3DS software increased by 89 percent from the same period a year ago. Standout titles include New Super Mario Bros. 2, which sold more than 295,000 units in its second month, as well as Mario Kart 7, Star Fox 64 3D, Kid Icarus: Uprising and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, which all saw sales increases compared to last month.

“Nintendo 3DS XL continues to galvanize our Nintendo 3DS business,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Hardware sales are up, software sales are increasing exponentially and the attach rate is growing stronger every month. With a great slate of upcoming games, including Paper Mario: Sticker Star, which arrives exactly one month from today, we like our position heading into the crucial holiday selling season.”

In another milestone, Super Mario 64 DS for the Nintendo DS family of systems has now sold more than 5 million units in the United States alone. This is the third Nintendo DS game to reach the 5 million mark, joining New Super Mario Bros. (10.6 million) and Mario Kart DS (8.5 million).

Can 3DS survive in a smartphone world? You betcha! In fact, instead of deciding who will kill who, I think because the gaming experiences differ on each platform, they will be able to coexist. After owning a smartphone for a few months now, I know that those games are not what I want as my only choice for portable gaming. The 3DS fills that void for deeper gaming experiences on the go. When will analysts stop talking about the death of the 3DS in a smartphone world and just accept that there is a market for both? Software sales this high from a year ago are a good sign, even old DS games still crossing milestones!

Nintendo press release says 3DS software up 89% in Sept, with no mention that combined 3DS/DS software was down 18%. That's NOT a good trend

Not an insult they all do it.

I don't get it. Is that basically saying 3DS software sales have basically absorbed most of the DS software sales, but that the combined sales are down overall?

Why wouldn't DS software sales go down? Why would that surprise anyone? That Pachter guy is such a wang, lol.

And by how much have the sales declined since last year?

It means while ds software is phasing out, 3ds software isnt making up the difference basically.

since NPD doesnt give exact numbers and we are forced to extrapolate, last year 3ds sold 260k. This year about 213k. But thats with the new one releasing youd figure there would have been a bump up.

I think Pachter needs a friend.

Of course it would go down if you combined them! DS software is naturally not selling like it once was. A year ago 3DS was still fairly new so DS software was still doing its thing alongside 3DS software. But it really doesn't matter because if you combine them (for pachters sake) this month there will be a huge bump thanks to Pokemon black and white version 2. I'm sure he'll still find something negative about it. lol

Let's step back a bit. Here's why NPD numbers are as flawed as anybody's. You have to take into consideration digital sales, which NPD doesn't track. Nintendo has been offering a lot of great eshop and digital retail recently. If you took into account all the eshop and digital retail sales, software sales might be over 100% in comparison.

3DS hardware being down....eh...not much. Here is something else to consider for this statistic. ALL hardware sales are down, new system coming out next month. People could be slowing down on existing hardware purchases to save up for Wii U. I know a lot of people that are doing just that so don't think 47K down = 3DS is doomed.

I really should apply for pachters job. Laughing

XL just launched sir. And sales were still down. You can skew it any way you want, that is not a good sign.

I think if pachter can skew anything in this industry to have a negative outlook, i can do the opposite.

the fact is that he is trying to doom and gloom us on an obvious fact. The 3DS software sales are way up. That is a fact.

the ds has a HUGE install base that is dying. 55M in the US alone moving away and no longer buying games for that system as they once did. Enter the 3DS which is only 6M strong in the states...how can that install base make up the game sales the 55M once supported?

Fast forward to say...October 2014. Nintendo announces Wii U software is up 90%! Pachter says, well actually when combined with Wii sales, which is a completely different console, sales are actually down 30%. then he laughs because he found another way to make progression in the industry look like decline.

Seriously though, after everything he has been wrong about why do you still believe this guy? I know you like to post negative stuff and that's cool, but this guy has become an industry joke. Nobody takes him seriously anymore.

You can argue all you want about Pachters intentions and his ability to completely guess wrong is proven. But this isnt speculation Im highlighting. These are facts. Numbers dont lie. If there are 55 million machines out there, software should still sell. It has nothing to do with new hardware sales.

Software sales down is bad for the portable industry not just Nintendo Streex. All it does is show you the Smartphones are taking over.

I'd say giving his report in a negative overtone (whether the news itself is negative or not) certainly skews you to think the worst of the situation. And for that he deserves to be called out for the lonely dipshit he is.

Software sales down in one year where unemployment is still record high, tons of variables in things like this. I'm not worried, Nintendo won't worry either. Concerned, sure. Worrying is for bitches. Wink

Smartphones are not "taking over" anytime soon. A nasty dent in the armor, for sure. Though inevitably all entertainment devices will become one and no console will exist regardless of company. Welcome to the 21st century Streex. Sad Its lonely here. Nintendo and all gaming companies will someday be relegated to software creation. Consoles will die die die.

Streex makes some good points. Not a good sign, true enough, but that doesn't mean it's a bad sign, either. We just don't have enough information either way.

If we are all headed to a one system hub for all things, that is still many years down the road. And I still believe smartphone gaming won't kill the 3DS. According to the poll on the right, many of you believe that too. They can coexist!

What Pachter stated is a fact, but it is a ridiculous and needless point to make. What if the new Pokemon game sells like crazy and DS software sales skyrocket for September? Well you know Pachter will put in his two cents and tell us that, ok, Nintendo DS had decent sales in Sept, but it will die out again in November when everyone that wants the game has it, so Nintendo is doomed. You see, with Pachter, there is always a cliff to every rise. Always a cancer to every success. They're still making PS2 games, so lets bundle PS3 numbers to the best years of PS2 sales. Seems logical right? Well to Pachter it does.

Let the 3DS enjoy its surge in software sales without bundling the numbers with its much older brother. And let me point out one more fact. Have you seen the quality and type of games that are being released these days for DS? A bunch of licensed garbage. Do you really expect them to keep picking up DS games in droves with that selection? I would hope software on DS would slow down. That would be scary if it didn't.

Either way you are missing his point. One game doesn't mean the DS library is getting stellar games.

And for the record, the game looks like shit if you hate the cartoon, which I do. The gameplay could be great but with those irritating characters I'd kill myself in half an hour.

I still hope you die- ADVENTURE TIME HATER!

Actually, I got his point. I was actually agreeing with it, just in an ironic way. Adventure Time is licensed, and it's actually not garbage from what I hear, but it can't hope make up for the rest of the licensed crap piles.

I heard that too about it being like LoZ 2, which scares me. I didn't like that game. But to be fair I think I didn't like it more because it wasn't a true Zelda experience. Zelda is on the box, I want a Zelda game. It didn't feel like Zelda. The actual gameplay wasn't too shabby so maybe Adventure Time will be a good one.
