Nice debut for Metroid and the OLED Switch. Surprised that the Series S moved nearly 3,000 units.

Amazing game. Here's hoping it doesn't take another 20 years for Metroid 6. Haha Not a bad debut. Nintendo should be pleased with the result.

Nintendo is on another level in Japan!
They dominate Hardware and Software.

The Switch 2 will continue this trend if the keep the Hybrid model.

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.

The power of money on show. When you're as rich as MS you get handed industries as a reward for being rich. We've all seen the evidence of what MS has planned and now there's nothing to stop them.

Remember you don't have to be any good to be competitive, you just need a rich parent company.
