Pokemon sales are insane as always.

thorstein2132d ago

Now to bring it to the Switch...

indyman77772131d ago (Edited 2131d ago )

Yeah first two spots! Speaking of which about 50% of the top 20 games are JRPG's.

9 out of 20 are Sony systems.
Eleven of the top 20 are on Nintendo systems.
0 out of 20 are Microsoft systems.

The day a new Pokemon drops on the Switch will be epic, can't wait

Neonridr2132d ago

look at that, a Wii U game outsold both the Switch and PS4. Bonkers I tell ya

Another great week for Nintendo.

Relientk772132d ago

Xbox One X goes from 1344 sales last week to 143 this week. Big drop.

Gemmol2132d ago

i was expecting 220, but i have a feeling they can bounce it up to 300 just now

Gemmol2132d ago

we know why this not approved yet

Lime1232132d ago

Because there are much more PlayStation gamers than Nintendo gamers on this forum, just like any other forum?

Gemmol2132d ago

you are correct for first time

Prince_TFK2131d ago

If by “gamers” you meant fanboys, then yes you are right.

Big_Game_Hunters2131d ago

Pokemon go 90mil+ players
uncharted 4 10 mil players

Nyxus2131d ago

Because it had several reports that needed to be fixed before approval.

septemberindecember2131d ago

Nail on the head in this case.

Gameseeker_Frampt2131d ago

Because Nintendo fanboys are too lazy to approve articles. It says a lot about the Nintendo community that it cannot even get 10 contributors to approve articles but are the first ones to complain when something they want isn't approved.

Prince_TFK2131d ago

So you have to be a Nintendo fanboy in order to approve Nintendo article? Well thanks you for explaining that.

septemberindecember2131d ago (Edited 2131d ago )


Heck, it isn’t even a Nintendo article. So I’ve no idea why he brought up fanboys at all.

moegooner882131d ago

Pretty much, the guy complaining has been a member for 500 days, and didn't bother taking the contributor test to approve submissions lol.

Gameseeker_Frampt2131d ago (Edited 2131d ago )


You have to be a fanboy to not do something but then complain about someone else not doing it because they secretly hate your preferred console. Today there are currently over 225 pending articles on N4G. Genmol approved 2. And those 2 articles yesterday were the only ones he approved this week. Same thing with septemberindecember - he's a contributer that posted this Google Translate piece but doesn't bother to actually approve articles on N4G. With contributors like this, is it any wonder why some articles take so long to get approved? There are just as many Sony and Xbox articles that take the same amount of time to get approved, yet it is only in Nintendo articles that this ridiculous conspiracy theory is always posted.

If you don't like how long it takes for your preferred articles to get approved, take the test, become a contributor that actually contributes to N4G, and fix it.

"There are just as many Sony and Xbox articles that take the same amount of time to get approved, yet it is only in Nintendo articles that this ridiculous conspiracy theory is always posted."

This isn't a Nintendo article though. Why do you keep implying it is?

indyman77772131d ago

@septemberindecember a lot of haters view sales charts as Nintendo articles. Because they shine a positive factual numbers on Nintendo's sales that contradict what they say about the system.

Knushwood Butt2131d ago

@ Gameskeeper

Spot on.

Plus we already had a media create sales article approved before this one, but reporting the exact same thing.

Also that other article approved was Gamers Will Take Longer to Sell Nintendo Switch than PS4 and Xbox One, GameStop Expects....

septemberindecember2131d ago


There was no media create article that was approved this week at the time of posting. Hence why I posted this one. Looking through a list of approved articles I still don’t see an approved media create article for this week aside from this one.

septemberindecember2131d ago (Edited 2131d ago )


You are right in that I should approve articles more often, but Media Create is NOT Nintendo. It’s a weekly sales article. I don’t see people see people complaining about Nintendo articles not being approved, but they are complaining about the pattern of sales articles which people avoid approval when certain companies win or lose. It’d be like people avoiding approval of an NPD article just because Xbox or PlayStation won.

That being said...in this instance the reason it wasn’t approved for so long was entirely my doing. I neglected to fix three error reports until mid-day yesterday.

Knushwood Butt2130d ago (Edited 2130d ago )

It's there under Alternate Sources above.

There was a separate submission that linked to the alternare source, and was approved before this.

septemberindecember2130d ago (Edited 2130d ago )


Are you sure that was posted before mine? I believe they added that source to mine after the fact. Otherwise mine would have been flagged as a duplicate.

Knushwood Butt2130d ago

I'm pretty sure but seen as that article is now gone I guess there's no way of confirming unless it still shows up in the approval history.

Anyway, I'm not having a go at you or this article.
