El Nintendo Switch vendió 10 millones de unidades en menos de un año

Contra viento y marea, y tras varias dudas de la industria que pensaban que Nintendo debería quitarse de desarrollar consolas, la compañía ha vuelto a posicionarse en lo alto.

Y es que el Nintendo Switch, la consola híbrida de Nintendo, que se puso a la venta el pasado 3 de marzo de 2017, ha logrado convertirse en la consola más vendida en la historia de Estados Unidos.

Nintendo en tan solo 10 meses ha vendido más de 4,8 millones de unidades del Nintendo Switch en los Estados Unidos, de acuerdo con las cifras de ventas internas de Nintendo.

Ese es el total más alto de los primeros 10 meses de cualquier sistema de videojuegos doméstico en la historia de los Estados Unidos, superando a la propia Wii de Nintendo, que fue la poseedora del récord anterior con más de 4 millones de unidades vendidas durante el mismo período de tiempo.

“Los fans de todo el país han experimentado la alegría de jugar sus juegos favoritos en casa o durante el camino”, dijo Reggie Fils-Aime, presidente y COO de Nintendo of America. “Ahora que mucha más gente ha recibido los sistemas Nintendo Switch para las fiestas, esperamos traerles nuevas y divertidas sorpresas en 2018 y más allá”.

Eso sí, Nintendo no ha aportado ninguna cifra oficial de las ventas acumuladas en Estados Unidos a día de hoy, por lo que no podemos saber cuántos Nintendo Switch se han vendido hasta el momento.

La compañía aseguró que 60% de los propietarios de su nueva consola ya disfrutan Super Mario Odyssey. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe y Splatoon 2 también han sido de los títulos favoritos de los estadounidenses, pues 50% y 20% de los usuarios de Switch tienen una copia de los títulos, respectivamente. Por otro lado, 55% de los poseedores del sistema adquirió The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Nintendo Switch también ha recibido un fuerte apoyo de los desarrolladores independientes, con un flujo constante de títulos como SteamWorld Dig 2 de Image & Form, Golf Story de Sidebar Games, Overcooked Special Edition de Team17 Digital Ltd y Stardew Valley de Chucklefish LTD.

Nintendo Switch 2018

Nintendo planea duplicar la cifra para el próximo año fiscal. El Nintendo Switch ya superó también las ventas iniciales de PlayStation 2 en Japón.

Nintendo asegura que durante el 2018 el catálogo de Switch seguirá creciendo. La compañía japonesa destaca a Kirby Star Allies, Bayonetta, Bayonetta 2 y un nuevo juego protagonizado por Yoshi.

También pone de relieve el apoyo third-party y promete nuevos títulos de editores como EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Capcom, Sega, Take-Two y Bethesda.

Red Dead Redemption 2 campaign mode playing time revealed

You could be spending the same amount of time playing Red Dead Redemption 2 as with GTA V.

Red Dead Redemption 2

One of the most anticipated video games of this year, Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2), could be a long one to play. According to Vulture, the game takes almost 60 hours to complete, that when it comes to the campaign mode.

Dan Houser from Rockstar Games revealed that the game was supposed to featured almost 65 hours of gameplay. But there was 5 hours of content that had to be cut for the final version.

Also, the games main protagonist, Arthur Morgan will have love interest while the game progresses. The content the was cut for the final version of the game included a second romantic plot. But in the end the lead writer of the game, Houser, explained that “we decided one of them didn’t work”.

Other missions were also subject to cuts. These included “a mission on a train where you had to fight with bounty hunters”. Thankfully, you can recreate that particular experience organically, as part of the daily random encounters in the world of RDR2.

While motion-capture for the single-player game’s story is complete, Rockstar is still shooting sections for Red Dead Online. The beta version for the latter is due to arrive in November.

The success of RDR2 is one that can’t be denied and will be extremely massive. All this given the track record of the saga and the success that the developer has found in this type of formula for a video game.

Rockstar’s latest entry, Grand Theft Auto V, earned $1 billion in its first three days and has sold nearly 100 million copies. In April of this year, GTAV — made from a approximate budget of $265 million — passed $6 billion in sales. Making the game the highest-grossing entertainment product in history. (Avatar, the highest-grossing movie ever, earned only a measly $2.8 billion in theaters.)

The release of Red Dead Redemption 2 is just around the corner. Can October 26th come any faster?

Sony will finally let you change that awful PSN ID in early 2019

Sony has finally revealed the long-awaited news – you will soon be able to change your PlayStation Network user ID (PSN ID).

Published

on

PSN ID Change Feature Announced

To some, the lack of ability to change your PSN Online ID was becoming some kind of a joke. To others like us, it was continuous frustration, more so if you had a god awful PSN ID that you came up with when you were a stupid teenager, like me.

But now there is some good news on the horizon. PlayStation has announced it will be testing a new feature that allows you to change your ID yourself.

The PSN Online ID Change feature beta will be a part of the PlayStation Preview Program, and will become available to select users that have pre-registered as testers for previous PS4 system software betas.

During the preview program, you will be able to change your online ID as many times as you want. The first change is free, and changes after that will cost $9.99 USD / CAD.

For PlayStation Plus members, it will cost $4.99 USD/ CAD after the first change. Changes to online ID can be made through the Settings menu or via the Profile page of your PS4.

PSN ID Change Feature Announced

When you change your online ID, you will have the option to display your previous ID with your new ID, so your friends can recognize you. Once you decide to display your old ID or not, you won’t be able to adjust this after completing the online ID change process.

This feature is compatible with PS4 games originally published after April 1, 2018, and a large majority of the most-played PS4 games that were released before this date. However, please note not all games and applications for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita systems are guaranteed to support the online ID change, and users may occasionally encounter issues or errors in certain games.

The feature will be available to PS4 users in early 2019.
