What is going on with PS5 in Japan? Xbox Series came only a few hundreds units away from beating PS5 in weekly number

The point is simple.
Nintendo is more popular than PlayStation based on hardware sold on the market, using Golden Joystick Awards as a barometer isn't going to make you sound logical.

Bodomism gets banned for this while the guy he was replying to gets away with calling him a fucking retard over and over again? That's fucking bullshit and he always tried to present his argument using actual data. I know he was annoying when he parachuted into a random discussion to praise glorious Nintendo, but this one was actually topical.

Mods need to make up their fucking minds, it's almost like you get banned for random enforcement of the "no console wars" rule. Hezekiah Hezekiah can grab my fucking Golden Joystick baiting my bro into getting banned like that for stating the fact that the Switch IS more popular than the current Sony nogaemsstation you goddamn snitch. Dispute that!

He was going off on a tangent about mobile gaming after I simply described the Switch as a portable.

Anyway I suggest a one minute silence by every poster on GAF every time they log onto the site in remembrance of him. And for the grieving Commodore.

Ah. Well it's pretty obvious the Nintendo crowd isn't wanted around here. Surprised he lasted this long, I'm sure they've been looking for any reason they could to get rid of him and finally got tired of waiting and went for it.

Is it permanent ban? I hope not....I'm always interested in Nintendo sales number

Target stores have the most amount of PS5 they have had in 2021. Inventory photos included, a lot of stores have 50+ and some have over 100.


Jim Ryan is trying to avoid his predecessor's mistakes, that led to a disastrous performance in the most important market at the worst possible moment.




Jim Ryan has paid too much attention to Japan, btw.

Japan LTD

2021 PS5 1,177,245 (Week 46)

2014 PS4 961,359 (Week 53)



specially when you consider that Japanese publishers don't care about Japan.

Unit sales – 1H FY22.3

Capcom 19.8M (Jap 3.6M; 18.2%)

Bandai Namco 19.6M (Jap 1.37M; 7.0%)

Square Enix 17.22M (Jap 2.27M; 13.2%)

Sega Sammy 14.04M (Jap 1.07M; 7.6%)

Koei Tecmo 3.65M (Jap 1.33M; 36,4%)

Total 74.29M (Jap 9.64M; 13.0%)

Marty got banned too. Nintendogaf is dying.



Marty was one of the biggest shills I've ever seen on NeoGAF. Bodomism was very likely, too. He used to spam positive Nintendo related news even in unreleated threads and even got a tag for it...

Both have probably gotten their fair share of warnings, but just couldn't stop no matter what (one could say, they were habitual line steppers).

It's actually nice to see that the moderation decided to not let that fly here. Any forum will be a better place without obnoxious shills.

If 13% of your sales come from a single country then you are going to care about how you do in that country.

I think the mods need to learn to be more hands off, they don't need to intervene all the time and if they do the bans should be focused more on breaking up arguments than punishing people for arguing.

Excessive overuse of their powers will ruin this site.
 
Marty asked to leave though. Maybe he left after he saw what they did to B Bodomism ?

Although with that user I can see why they gave him that tag.

perma ban is a bit harsh though. should just give him longer temp ban, IMO perma-ban should be reserved if you abuse or threaten other posters. Harmless offense should just be temp bans
