Nintendo, meanwhile, continues to rake in the dough, thanks to it's Switch in 3DS.
While unit sales slipped for the Switch, just barely, video game sales rose 121% over a year ago.
I wish we had Alfred here to talk abot Smash and his love for Smash, but clearly, The Switch it's still got a lot of momentum behind it.
Look, the Switch is ahead and it's one of those products that doesn't really seem to make sense on paper or even when you look at it the first time.
Nintendo Labo, when I first heard about it, I was like "this is a stupid idea".
And they've prove me wrong.
Labo by the way has sold 1.39 million units.
So my nephew-
It's just cardboard that you fold.
My nephew has Labo and it's kind of addictive and it's kind of fun and they make it really Goofy and enjoyable.
And Nintendo has obviously done a really good job of differentiating in the market for decades by being goofier and more fun, whereas Microsoft and Sony, their games, so many of them are dark shooter games.
I mean, look, there are hardcore games.
The graphics are better.
The experience is more immersive.
They're definitely for hardcore gamers, the switch has appealed to a broader base, just like the original Wii did, really appealed to a broader base of users and the idea of going mobile, which we kind of laughed at initially, is actually pretty smart, you see tons of people on the subway, on the train.
Playing these things.
Yeah, and it's way more effective than Super Mario run, which was the other mobile effort.
I played that for a while and wasn't that into it.
You mean Super Mario run?
