You cannot deny, though, the momentum that the Switch built from launch onward was credited to Breath of the Wild. More people bought Breath of the Wild than Switch units when the console first launched. That was mainly due to the low supply the Switch had once it launched, and Switch sold over 2+ million from March to April (or was it May?) in 2017.

I never denied that, simply stated that BotW wasn't a killer app for the Switch. It was a killer app for Nintendo, and Switch was just the objectively better option.

Not entirely true because the performance of the Wii U meant that most of the people who have eventually bought it and are buying it didn't have the said platform so the game forced these people into a choice Switch or Wii U which still makes it a killer app as it made you have to buy a platform from the one company and not a competing one.

What are you on about? You literally just paraphrased what I said, but with an attempt to spin it in the other direction.

Choice existed, you didn't need to buy a Switch to get BotW. It was just the better option.
