Thread Genshin impact cost $100M to make, but expected to cost $200M per year of dev (700 devs working on the game now)
It's a metaphorical $200m. Not an actual $200m. In other words, they will spend more operating the game than they did developing the game as they plan to constantly update it with new content.

Thread World of Warcraft Mobile appears on TapTap (non-US app store)
If you read the description you’ll see they added it based on the Acti earnings call where they said they are working on mobile games based on the Warcraft IP. It’s not an actual game, more a placeholder.

Thread Nintendo censors "human rights" and "freedom" in Chinese localization of Paper Mario: The Origami King (UP: Game was not censored. See threadmarks)
You're right. Also this is the global version of the game. The same version you buy in the US basically. The game does not have an official release in Mainland China, it has not gone through the approval process there and no changes have been mandated by the Chinese government ore regulators. So I wouldn't read into this too much with the most generous interpretation being the one above and the least generous interpretation being that they could have changed it in advance of a Mainland China release. But ultimately people are jumping to conclusions overall.

Thread Hardware and Software sales from 2012 to 2018 in several countries
Even the PS4 total is off. No matter if you count sell in or sell through, it magically sold more units than Sony reported themselves. The US and Japan numbers are correct since it's based on NPD and Media Create/Famitsu data. The European country numbers are based on GfK data, but some seem to be upweighted / slightly different to what GfK reports. I'd ignore the rotw estimates and global totals.

Thread Hardware and Software sales from 2012 to 2018 in several countries
But CESA is clearly estimating ROTW. Same with PS Vita. The fact they made such a basic error with PS4 should back that up. LATAM total for XB1 is not even 4m, so Mexico would not be that high. As above. The only trustworthy numbers are USA and Japan as they quote NPD and Media Create/Famitsu numbers. The Europe data is accurate enough, as it's based on GfK, but some of the data is upweighted/slghtly off from what GfK report.

Thread Possible first image of Assassins Creed Ragnarok leaked
For what it’s worth. All of the new AC leaks so far have been incorrect. It’s not even called Ragnarok. Sure. Some of the details are right. Like improved combat or whatever. But in general they’re not that accurate.

Thread Possible first image of Assassins Creed Ragnarok leaked
These recent leaks are based on the original AC Kingdom leak from Kotaku itself.So some of it is true or not far off the truth. But mostly it’s a bunch of educated guesses. as above, the final name isn’t even ragnarok.

Thread Tom Warren: “hardly anyone has them” (Scarlett dev kits) “They’re no where near final”
Some historical context. Dev kits are out there for both consoles. I obviously have no idea how widespread both are. At the moment devs can create games on them, but they can't be finalised. Final dev kits won't ship till mid next year (approx), that allow them to finalise games.

Thread The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's Switch Port cited by CD Projekt RED As Driving Revenues Up 38% YoY
I'm aware. But this is a really weird thread title and premise when there are other more notable factors cited. Better to wait for next quarter to report on Switch performance.There is no number?

Thread The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's Switch Port cited by CD Projekt RED As Driving Revenues Up 38% YoY
The report is through to September 30th 2019. The game launched mid October. CDPR is only talking about the initial shipment on Switch ordered by retailers. It's not indicative of anything. They even mention this in the report.

Thread Verified Member Program
Hi all, Yesterday we announced that we’d be rolling out a program where members of the games industry such as developers, community representatives and press could earn a “Verified status” on their account. We’re now happy to announce that we’ll be moving forward with this plan today and have put together an FAQ to help everyone understand more about what verification entails. At ResetEra, we’re looking to help foster deep relationships between those who consume games and those that develop, write about and publish them. A verified account is an additional layer of trust and authenticity to your account. It adds weight to your posts and helps to strengthen the notion that you’re a real human being that has passion for the work you do. We think that being verified can help to create a stronger relationship with your audience and gives you an opportunity to step into discussions about your work as a valuable source of authority. We believe having an identifiable voice on one of the fastest-growing video game forums on the internet is important. Please note that verified status will not entitle you to preferential treatment from the staff and you will still be expected to adhere to the same forum rules as any other member. Once you have verified your account you will have a verified icon placed under your username and you will also have the ability to add a descriptive custom tag under your profile picture to explain your current role in the industry. The verified Icon looks like this: If you are interested please reach out by email at In the email you'll need to provide - Your ResetEra account name (!) - Your name - Your job title and company - Your work email address or any other means of proving your identity - A description of why you wish to verify your account - A custom tag (E.G. Developer at X or Community Manager at Y) We’d like to note that becoming a verified member is completely optional. It is something you would opt in to. We fully understand that many industry members will wish to remain anonymous and we respect that. Please note that not all accounts that request verification will be verified.

Thread NPD analyst Mat Piscatella “US Hardware install base 71 months in 1. PS2 2. 360 3. Wii. 4. PS1 5. PS4. 6. PS3. 7. Xbox One”
Not sure if mentioned but it looks like the original tweet is phrased extremely poorly. Whilst the original tweet implies it's comparing all consoles in their first 71 months. It's actually comparing 71 months of PS4/XB1 sales to total lifetime sales for all the other consoles. Wii was significantly higher than 360 after 71 months, but 360 surpassed Wii at the end. The PS4 surpassed PS1's total after 71 months already, but is still behind PS1's lifetime sales total. Maybe this post can be added to the OP to clear everything up.

Thread Assassin's Creed Origins |OT| Stalking in Memphis
Loving the game so far. The world is absolutely amazing and I love how the quests are done and tracked. Means I have a lot more freedom to do what I want. The "A quest is nearby" thing is awesome too. Discovered my first bug today though. Was crouched next to a tree whilst assassinating a dude riding by on a horse. The animation showed me lunging through the tree to assassinate the NPC. After that I ended up stuck in the tree and couldn't run out of it lol.

Thread Next-gen PS5 and next Xbox speculation launch thread |OT6| - Mostly Fan Noise and Hot Air
Just a quick note to say that we were able to verify the poster above as someone who worked in the industry and would be able to access certain levels of information. That being said, it's near impossible to verify whether the above description is true or not, so please keep in mind that we can't verify whether all the information in each post is correct, just the details i posted above.
