Nintendo also faced a shortage of console parts. Over the past quarter, the Japanese giant sold only 3.83 million Switch consoles, which is much less than last year’s results, when 6.86 million consoles were sold.
As a result, at the moment, 92.87 million Switches have already been sold in the world, which is a very good result. Based on the results of the entire financial year, which the company will end in spring, Nintendo now expects to sell not 25.5 million, but 24 million.
Thus, by the end of this fiscal year, the Switch is likely to overtake both the Wii, which is now the most popular home gaming console in Nintendo history, and the original PlayStation. These consoles for all the time of sales have sold in the amount of 101.63 and 102.49 million, respectively.
One of the Best Games of the Generation and the Best of Halo of the Last 10 Years: Halo Infinite Ratings Appear
First-person shooter Halo Infinite hits the market this week, launching simultaneously on Xbox and PC in December. In the meantime, reviews of the game have appeared on the Web.
After posting 42 reviews, the Xbox Series X version has an 87/100 average. For the PC version, 9 reviews have been published so far with an average score of 80/100. Let’s start with low ratings: no one rates the game less than 70/100.
The most negative review came from PlaySense (70/100): “The Master Chief is back, but our adventures on Zeta Halo left us with mixed feelings. The gameplay is truly phenomenal, and the hook is particularly eye-catching. But after an additional year of development, the game is still not finished. The single-player game is not memorable, the environment is repeated, and the game is not very developed at the technical level. While multiplayer has been a huge pleasure, 343 Industries just doesn’t fit with this Halo title. ”
Metro GameCentra (80/100): “A bizarrely structured and often uninteresting storyline campaign threatens to undermine multiplayer, but it’s still the best Halo has had in a decade.”
TrueGaming (85/100): “Halo Infinite will appeal to fans and newcomers alike as it provides a breath of fresh air in campaigns and multiplayer modes.”
Generacion Xbox (99/100): Halo Infinite is a much-needed reimagining of the franchise. The campaign mode makes it the most ambitious, fun, and complete Halo of them all. This edition is a love letter to fans and a real gift for newbies. Undoubtedly one of the best games of the generation and a real gem not to be missed. “
On PC, Halo Infinite will ship with support for ultra-wide displays, and cut-scenes will also be displayed in this format. Functions such as viewing angle sliders, resolution adjustment, weapon model displacement control will appear. Previously announced support for ray tracing is still planned as a post-launch update, though it is being developed in partnership with AMD. The possibility of playing on a local network between PCs and consoles is declared.
The developer has also worked to reduce Halo Infinite’s input lag to “one of the lowest in the industry” for better mouse and keyboard interactions. Integration with Steam and Discord social features has also been confirmed, including squad invites via Discord. Finally, support for products with Razer Chroma RGB lighting is announced.

PlayStation Spartacus will offer access to games for PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4 and PS5, as well as PSP
As it became known, Sony is preparing a new PlayStation Spartacus service, which will feature games from the PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and possibly PlayStation Portable consoles. Scheduled to launch next fall, it will be a response to Microsoft’s Xbox Gamepass service.
The source of Bloomberg was a Sony employee who asked to remain anonymous. He has access to documents with such information. PlayStation Spartacus will be integrated with other services of the company: PS Plus and PS Now. The new service will be available on both PS4 and PS5.
The PlayStation Spartacus will be split into three categories, in one of which users will be able to stream classic games from PS1, PS2, PS3 as well as PSP. Another category will have an extensive catalog of options for the PS4, and a third for the PS5. At the same time, the service will not include games from the PS Vita, which Sony itself considers a failure.
It remains to wait and see when the service will be launched and how widespread it will be. PS Now, for example, is not available in all countries of the world.
Bloomberg is a trusted source, but any such information should be treated with caution before Sony’s official announcement.
