With the disaster that was the Nintendo Wii U, it’s hard to blame Nintendo’s critics and investors for being skeptical about the Switch. However the Switch has since proved the naysayers wrong where it managed to outsell the Wii U’s lifetime sales, and now it seems that according to the latest figures, the console managed to outsell all other consoles in 2018.
Note that the Switch is still very much far behind the Sony PS4 in terms of overall units sold (Microsoft hasn’t officially shared sales figures of the Xbox One), but at least as far as 2018 is concerned, the Switch outsold everyone else. It also managed to have the best December sales of any console of this current generation.
GIRRAWEEN, Australia — In 1994 I lived in Surry Hills, a suburb of Sydney, Australia. Back then, Surry Hills was artsy, edgy, and most important, cheap. One day I looked out my bedroom window and saw, parked in front of an office, a dark gray coupe. This lead-hued peril lurked behind a passing stream of subcompacts, utes, and round-edged Holden Commodores and Ford Falcons like a barracuda among the cast of "Finding Nemo." I had no idea what it was. I called my Australian roommate over to make a positive ID. He chuckled and said, "That? That's Godzilla," then walked away. I'd met the R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R — "Gran Turismo Racer."
Australia's Wheels magazine had christened the Skyline GT-R "Godzilla" in the July 1989 issue, after the Japanese had already taken to calling the car obakemono, meaning "monster." In 1990, Nissan Motorsport Australia (NMA) entered one of the all-wheel-drive, twin-turbo howlers in the Australian Touring Car Championship. The R32 won one race.
Sony has released the list of PS4 Top Selling Games for 2018 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has come out ahead of every other game. Two separate lists have been released to showcase the popularity of titles in Europe and North America. The charts are largely similar with the exception of a couple of titles.
The PS4 Top Selling Games 2018 list for North America places Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 at the very top. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was very well received so it’s not a surprise to see it at the top of this list. Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 was the second-best selling PlayStation 4 title last year. Marvel’s Spider-Man, which launched to rave reviews last year, rounds out the top three on this list.
We are at the end of 2018 and there's no denying it's been a challenging year for Sony Xperia fans. Sony Mobile finally changed its design that much of the media were after, but after initially being excited about the prospects of carrying its existing design language into narrower bezels, what we instead got was a design that, while comfortable in the hand, left a lot to be desired in looks.
