the wii u was also doing well before everything went south of the border, lets not forget. We will see how well switch does when the eventual dry spell in games begins (similar to its dead baby brother Wii U).
To be fair, the Wii U did pretty good at launch. If "pretty good" means being outsold by every other system except the Vita and the DS in it's first 2 months, that is.
Seriously, people don't understand how much of a gigantic failure the Wii U was.
"Let's not forget"
Oh the irony.
