And the Switch is still hard to find online. I've seen a few at Costco in store, but haven't seen any at Best Buy or Target.

With limited stock this year for the new consoles Nintendo could have a fantastic holiday, could definitely see them shadow dropping a big release/discounted bundle for December.

I am expecting it to catch up to the PS4 in total sales in around 2 years, maybe less - it's having a great time at the moment.

Less aa its already over half 70 mil ps4 118 mill almosg 4 yeara flr switcb ps4 almost 6

@DEKUX12 Remember that you also have to factor in price. The PS4 Pro is still 400 & the slim is at 300. You can get a Switch light for 200.

This covid is really a blessing in disguise especially for nintendo

Saviior951042d ago

Couldn't agree more, Covids made such a huge impact of the industry as a whole, and with parents looking for things to occupy their younger kinds, the Switch is a no brainer!

FinalFantasyFanatic1041d ago

That and the amount of video game sales going on all the time since Covid started, I've been able to add so many games to my collection that I would have waiting alot longer to fork out for.

New Microsoft/Activision deal addresses previous CMA concerns in cloud gaming

The sale of Activision’s cloud gaming rights to Ubisoft substantially addresses previous concerns and opens the door to the deal being cleared, the CMA said today.

A step 🚶‍♂️ in the direction.

Phil note to self “buy Ubisoft “

crazyCoconuts10h ago

exactly what i was thinking when i read this lol

Zeref9h ago

They're actually not allowed to buy Ubisoft. For 10 years at least lol

Well at least this drama will be over in the next few weeks. Got to laugh at the CMA though, clearly just looked for a way to save face and act like they achieved anything remotely meaningful.

I don't want it to stop so far we've seen deep behind the iron curtain I want more

You’re probably not aware that it was MS that went back to the CMA to find ways that it could make the deal pass. Easy to get lost in all of the false narratives that many people put out there.

“Microsoft President Brad Smith has shared a company statement on the move, as the Xbox owner begins "considering how the transaction might be modified" to make it work for the UK CMA.
Here's the full quote from Microsoft:
"After today's court decision in the U.S., our focus now turns back to the UK. While we ultimately disagree with the CMA's concerns, we are considering how the transaction might be modified in order to address those concerns in a way that is acceptable to the CMA.
In order to prioritize work on these proposals, Microsoft and Activision have agreed with the CMA that a stay of litigation in the UK would be in the public interest and the parties have made a joint submission to the Competition Appeal Tribunal to this effect."

Em I am intently aware that as soon as the FTC lost the judge ruling and it became clear that only the CMA was in a position to offer any meaningful opposition both the CMA and MS appeared to the CAT to ask for a stop to their appeal.

CMA's ruling was clearly flawed and nonsensical as was becoming apparent in the CAT hearings and this micky mouse Ubisoft deal is just a way for them to back down with saving some face

Regardless on anyones position on whether the merger should go ahead both the FTC and CMA have done nothing but makes themselves both look clueless about gaming.

Cool, just showing you what came directly from the MS source. It’s status quo to ignore facts these days.

After the FTC leaks and Microsofts long term plans...I just can't believe this got passed anywhere buuuut money talks I guess

PhillyDonJawn11h ago

Most of those plans are no longer possible
