Simple math. Nintendo can only cross the 50% of total consoles sold if they take greater than 50% market share from today forward (i.e. outsell PS4, Xbone, and Vita). Otherwise their market share of historical sales will shrink. So no, they won't cross 50%.

Theoretically, if Switch got off to an amazing start, and 3DS has a solid 201u, they could hit 50% for a short period, maybe around 1 year after release.  This would require amazing sales though, and poor sales of most of their competition.  So, I basically agree that it ain't gonna happen.

A year like 2007 or 2008 would do it.

2007 - 46m (N) 20m (S) 8m (MS)

2008 - 53m (N) 24m (S) 11m (MS)

The competition can still do good numbers, Nintendo has to do better.

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

so less than 4m, easy.

What about the 50% mark? Only if they have the 'holy trinity', imo.

For 50% they need to sell more than Sony and MS combined. Not in the near future.

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

That's what those letters meant above the number then. So ~14M copies sold of WSR to Wii owners who got WS free with their consoles plus copies of WS to owners who bought a Wii with WSR. Still seems high! Impressive if it did manage to sell that amount without giving it away. (Did WSR come with Wii Remote Plus?)

it came with that addon for normal remotes that added the functionaluty.. They later bundled that hardware as Wii remote plus.

Yes it'll cross the 700M sold quite soon, but I don't see it taking 50% marketshare.

Thank you for the info. Data makes much more sense now.



That is along 4 million right? I can't see how it won't cross that number.
Even the wii U did three times that.

50% market share? No. To have 50% or of the market share - you have to do better than the other two combined. That isn't going to happen.

The Virtual boy is missing from this list



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

- George Orwell, ‘1984’
