Also looking back at the launch for 3DS and Wii U they werent the #1 on Amazon

How do you look up Amazon's bestseller-ranking of January or February or March 2011? Can't you only look up the ranking of the end of the year?

How do you know that the 3DS wasn't #1 in January 2011 or January+February 2011 or January+February+March 2011 at Amazon?

Does this no longer apply?

He was so young.



A close friend of mine completely skipped the WiiU and hasnt been into gaming for years, I show him the new trailer of Zelda and he sent me a picture of his Switch pre-order just 3 hours ago lol

I was not expecting that at all.



From January 2nd to January 16th last year, the PS4 sold 109k in the United States and the XB1 sold 63k in the United States.

Assuming similar sales this year, and assuming Amazon is an average retailer, that would mean preorders are probably greater than 109k after one day.

That's not a very high benchmark to pass. Obviously sales could be much higher than the ps4, but all we really know is that it has outsold the best selling ps4 sku on Amazon. By how much is anyone's guess.

Yes, a new console is expected to do that. Lets wait and see how much it sells after launch with nothing backing it but Zelda...

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is going to release in April, so Nintendo has prepared a one-two punch for the launch window.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

As it has been pointed out, this has never happened too Wii U and 3DS. So this is pretty big. But what matters is how they maintain that momentum throughout the year. They can't afford a dry summer and autumn and the only winter game they have is Mario. That can't happen. Nintendo needs to get their other B list titles for summer and autumn. Their Kirby, Donkey Kong, Pikmin, Kid Icarus, etc. Nintendo has the IP to drive the Switch, it'll be interesting to see if they do.

Yeah i think Spring is pretty good and Summer has splatoon. From Sept-Dec Mario isnt enough they need more games than that. Maybe Pokemon Stars?

For Nintendo's sake, I really hope this doesn't turn out like your Halo 5 prediction, or this will end up as WiiU.0.

Lmao this is my favorite comment /thread.

It was #4 and #7 in March though.

Without trying to be a negative whore. Amazon doesn't require you to put a deposit or anything when pre-ordering and you can cancel anytime so..

But it is still good news

Are you implying Ninty fans aren't putting their money where their mouth is? ^.^

You need to remember that the Switch is currently sold out, so the pre-orders could be higher.

Yes, a remaster is going to deliver a mastive boost indeed.



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).
