Wargroove’s PlayStation 4 Release Date Is Up in the Air

TODO alt text

IT'S-A SLICE OF HUMBLE PIE for Nintendo Switch naysayers, as demand for the Japanese gaming giant's hybrid console kept soaring in 2018.

Consumer spending in the gaming reached $43.4 billion in the United States - an increase of 18% - including record growth in both hardware and software sales. Total sales of software, hardware, and accessories grew by 2 percent for the month of December and 13 percent over the entire year. In the translation, in response to a question on how Nintendo will reach its 20 million unit sales goal within the fiscal year, Furukawa states "It is an extremely ambitious, but worthwhile achievement".

Christmas might not be as important a celebration in Japan as it is elsewhere in the world, but regardless, Nintendo had a good one. It said that Ultimate exceeded the launch month sales of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, by 70% for the year. According to Kotaku, that puts first-month physical sales for Ultimate at over 4.5 million units. Nintendo launched the platform back in March of 2017.

NPD didn't release the exact sales number for Smash, but it gave us enough to roughly figure it out.

Thierry Henry sacked by Monaco after 104 days

Southfield man kicked off American flight for body odor
Airline officials also told them that their luggage would be taken off the plane, but the couple said it never happened. Adler was then told other people had complained about his family's body odor, and that his family would have to leave.

After enjoying two years of strong sales, the game console is seeing demand approaching saturation and Nintendo has decelerated its order pull-in since the second half of 2018.

These gains may have been US-specific; VGChartz, which tracks the worldwide market, claims that PS4 and Xbox One sales fell by 10.5 percent and 7.1 percent, respectively. While anything could change, and there could be a top-secret lab underneath Tokyo where Nintendo is testing a Switch Slim or a Switch Pro, this is what we're getting officially at the moment. Unfortunately, this kind of granularity is hard to come by.

Another thing worth noting is that Wargroove is confirmed to feature day-one cross-play between Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC, but no mention has been made about cross-play with the PlayStation 4 version. Smash pushed Switch to highest sales in the year, wonderful performance.
