Dino7c isn't wrong. It's pretty common early in a console life cycle that games have huge attach rates because people are buying every game due to limited choice and since they are justifying the console purchase. Hell I just bought a 25 year old arcade soccer game because I was craving a sports game for the switch - no chance that I'm buying Super Sidekicks on my PS4 or Xbone.

Vita was very much the same at the start for sure. I recall people actually using the attach rate to defend that the system wasn't a failure.

IMO Switch is already more successful than that system just because it's actually still pushing console units but attach rates for game can be deceiving early in a console life cycle since limited games are coming out and there isn't a back catalog for people to buy.

Still doesn't mean that SFV wasn't a bit of a bust though - for an established franchise on a system with 15x the install base that the Switch had it should have been able to outsell Arms even with the "New Console" factor.

I would have never expected this game to look this good.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

Yeah, the game itself looks great. The very existence of those rabbits offends me though. I'll most likely pick it up anyway.


Also, Capcom now plans to port Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2 to the Switch. Trying to repeat their easy money success with Ultra Street Fighter II.
