    Make your call: how long until Switch exceeds "X1family".

    in Sales Discussion on 18 September 2017

    The correct answer is "never". Within the next 3 years, Microsoft will release the next generation XBox. It will be backwards compatible with the XBox One, so technically, I would still consider that part of the X1 family. The next gen release will cause a spike in sales, putting it above Switch numbers. Second, the poll specifically said Switch, and not Switch family. Within 3 years,...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 May 2017

    Wow. Mind blown. A full priced, 3-year old port, launched in the 2nd month after a new console launch without much marketing (at least based on my own personal observations) is not a scenario where I would expect any records to be broken. Also congrats to Nintendo for crossing 1 million consoles sold in the US! NPD results are going to be interesting to watch in the next few months....

    Did Someone Steal a Truck Of Nintendo Switch's Or Am I Missing Something?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 March 2017

    There was a scam going around where people were using those listings to price match at local retailers (where price matching of Amazon was allowed). Apparently many CSRs fell for it. I think most places now have policies against price matching Amazon resellers....

    Putting the Switch's price into perspective.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 27 February 2017

    specialk said: DM235 said: I still think that Nintendo should have released a Switch Mini home console, with no screen, for $200. They'd still be selling a console that is less powerful than the competition for only $50 cheaper.  So at that point, all they're offering is Nintendo games. If someone is willing to pay $200 for Nintendo games, they're probably willing to...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 27 February 2017

    potato_hamster said: The price of the Switch would have been just fine in 2012-2013 if it was launching alongside the PS4 and Xbox One at their launch prices. But it isn't. It's launching against systems that are 3 years old, have seen multiple price cuts, and are now cheaper than the launch price of the Switch. No one cares about what the PS4 and X1 prices were three years ago. They only...

    I know why the Switch Pro controller is so expensive

    Veknoid_Outcast said: DM235 said: I think you are missing the point.  Yes, the competition is also greedy with accessories.  However, Nintendo has decided to raise the bar by charging even more than the competition. Sadly, if they are successful, the competition will follow suit, and all of us will be paying more for accessories. Hey, I'm not happy with the...

I think this was what I was trying to get at, in my artless, awkward way :-P  Accessories are notorious for high mark-up, and all console makers are guilty. Before labeling the pro controller a rip-off or Nintendo a greedy,...

    I know why the Switch Pro controller is so expensive

    in Gaming Discussion on 10 February 2017

    The real reason it costs so much is greed. Controllers have extremely high profit margins. Nintendo is just maximizing profit based on what they think they can get away with. For example, a PS4 controller cost $18 to build in 2013. Source: http://allthingsd.com/20131119/teardown-shows-sonys-playstation-4-costs-381-to-build/ ...

    Digital Foundry: Scorpio Spec leak - "might suggest console isn't the "true" 4k console as MS claimed"

    in Microsoft Discussion on 24 January 2017

    PS1 was out for 5 years before PS2 (1995 to 2000). PS2 was out for 6 years before PS3 (2000 to 2006). PS3 was out for 7 years before PS4 (2006 to 2013). PS4 would be out for 5 years in 2018. What are the odds that Sony would counter with a PS5 in 2018? Also, Scorpio cannot come out soon enough. I've been holding out getting an XBox, but I'm almost at a point where I feel like I may as...

    Adjusted for inflation, Switch costs the same as launch as Wii (in US)
