    Is Nintendo Switch really a success?

    in Sales Discussion 5 days ago

    curl-6 said: DélioPT said:   The evidence that Switch's evergreen titles are showing fantastic legs with nothing whatsoever to suggest this will change. We're just going in circles now; you're still dancing around the fact that Switch is a totally different product from PS/Xbox that occupies a totally different niche; the fact that their sales aren't...

    Is Nintendo Switch really a success?

    in Sales Discussion 6 days ago

    curl-6 said: DélioPT said:   That Nintendo's Switch software is selling more strongly than on prior consoles is a point in its favour, not against it. All the evidence points to its evergreen titles remaining strong sellers for years to come, including ones that are still to arrive like Animal Crossing, Smash, Gen 8 Pokemon, and more that we don't even know...

A game like Fortnite being the next big thing is a good sign for Nintendo. More people have...

    curl-6 said: DélioPT said:   MS/Sony are quite predictable; their next systems will almost certainly just be the exact same thing but with more power, just as PS4/Xbone are basically just PS3/360 with more power. To cripple Switch sales, they would have to offer something that directly cannibalizes Switch's buyer base, and since they can't offer Nintendo...

    Wall Street Journal Japan Reports A New Switch Model Will Release In The Second Half Of 2019

    in Nintendo Discussion on 05 October 2018

    An improved Switch is the most reasonable option. Price wise, if the improved version is more expensive, then, by comparison, the Switch OG model would look cheaper. And with time, with lowering price you'd eventually reach another audience without the need to compromise your future. An improved version would, in theory, allow for more multiplats and ports to arrive to the system. A mini...

The real reason is why they can coexist despite the 13+ million sales in 2017 and the 20 million so far.  It's not irrelevant that when Switch came out 80+ million...

If you haven't paid attention, Switch is inheriting all the support the 3DS and Vita got without a problem. You answered your own question wrong.
