Sony's best selling first party titles never sell as well in Japan Nintendo's best selling first party titles over there.

I like both PlayStation and Nintendo 1st party. Both make some of the best games out there.

it's not even close to be honest. Nintendo titles sell into the millions usually.. while PS4 games struggle to reach 100k

Maybe for some games, but a lot of the AAA games Sony puts out there end up crossing a million units.

Yes worldwide. Not in Japan.

Not only in Japan, but in general. Very few IPs have the selling power of Nintendo's top selling stuff. Minecraft and GTA are a couple of the (very few) examples.

Congratulate Nintendo. I hope they keep on supporting this game with new maps and modes for months to come. Anyone that haven't played it yet should try it. One of the best shooters for me this gen so far.

That's great news. I never played the original Splatoon but I did play Splatoon 2 and I'm pretty impressed by how fun it is. I'm really glad I didn't overlook it.

Other than the different special weapons, Salmon Run, and some difference in the power ups, its the same fun game.
