    So you still expecting WiiU to sell on par with XB1 in US this holiday?

    And one more thing - http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6063439

    We got an official NPD leak a month ago, the gap is like 100k now with 360 selling 75k last month Vs Wii's 16k. Looks like it was never off the table

    Nintendo Switch Best Selling Home Console in History during first 12 months in the US.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 March 2018

    Will be interesting to see if anything ever reaches a 50m install base in the US market. Probably feasible now with the US population set to be around 330m people as the Switch peaks. DS got to 60m in the Americas, but I don't think it hit 50m in just the US. Wii/X360/PS2 are got to the mid-40s....

    Famitsu: Super Mario Odyssey sold 511,625 units within first three days in Japan

    For the Comgnet numbers, you have to user different multipliers than on Wii or Wii U since it has a portable aspect. Comgnet is more of a console audience...or at least it used to be....
