Hm, not sure what to think about these DS sales. Seems good, but I have a feeling Kojima has not been happy with sales and reception of the game (given his recent twitter shenanigans). Oh well, I'm enjoying things quite well thus far.

I didn't expect that Ring thingy from Nintendo to sell so well. I guess there's an audience for everything.

The point is - reviewers also from classic gaming outlets agree that it is actually good. it is workout, but at the same time entertaining. RingFit will become a real evergreen title that stays in the charts for years.

Ring Fit is surely a surprise hit for Nintendo... Death Stranding sold more than Luigi's Mansion 3 in its first week. What numbers can we expect from Pokemon next week? Will it be a million seller in Japan alone in its first week?

but do the Japanese understand Death Stranding since they are great fans of JRPG's and Anime games and Death Stranding isn't one of them?
