That’s interesting to see that PS4 outsold Switch by more than 2:1, despite Mario’s successful launch.

To be fair, Odyssey was only available for 5 days in October so we won't see the full impact of its release until November.

It’s because throughout the 80’s and early 90’s, Nintendo treated Europeans like second class gamers; it wasn’t until PS1 came around when Europeans were finally taken seriously, and they’ve been devoted to Playstation ever since.

Wait a minute, hold on .... It’s because throughout the 80’s and early 90’s, Nintendo treated Europeans like second class gamers; it wasn’t until PS1 came around when Europeans were finally taken seriously, and they’ve been devoted to Playstation ever since?

No, you clearly don't get the point. It’s because throughout the 80’s and early 90’s, Nintendo treated Europeans like second class gamers; it wasn’t until PS1 came around when Europeans were finally taken seriously, and they’ve been devoted to Playstation ever since. Is that hard to understand?

Well the problem is the price, Europe isnt Nintendos strongest region to begin with and they decided to price the console still at 330€ even tough the Euro stands around 1.20$ now. In fairness they charge only 50€ for games instead 60€ like they did with the Wii U, but people arent looking at that if they are deciding to buy a new console.

That's the same thing I said when I saw Shania Twain live in the 90's.
