What do you think about this prediction?

Please dude, you're just... 57 60.00%
 
Pretty spot on in my opinion. 30 31.58%
 
Its going to sell less th... 8 8.42%
 
Total:95

The reason I put two predictions is because Nintendo has been utterly confusing with their Switch marketing. Nintendo has stated its a home console, but some are saying its replacing the 3DS. Now if it is replacing the Wii U, and we do see a Nintendo handheld along with this, I can predict it will sell less than 15 million. Its making all the mistakes the Wii U had, and has a far inferior launch lineup. Now if its replacing the 3DS as well, it will of course sell better. But it'll still be down plenty compared to the 3DS due to a mostly poor lineup, and a higher launch price, as well as poor western support, and the growth of mobile gaming in Japan. Now if I'm wrong, well bump this in 3 years and I will laugh along with the community about my terrible prediction, and such and such. If I'm right, well I'll just bump this and laugh at everyone who was dead wrong. I really hope things change for this console, but I just don't see it. 



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).

barney, what did I tell you about making Nintendo threads?



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

Isn't their marketing that it can be both?

That I should never criticize Nintendo no matter how wrong they're?

The launch lineup is subjective. I have no interest in getting one, and I have no interest in Zelda. I wouldn't say that makes it inferior though.

I am curious if the 3ds will still get games though.

My question is, what if it's suppose to replace both? Would you then combine both estimates?

Edited title. It'll sell less than 35 million if 3DS replacement/hybrid.

Another one of this thread Barney?I dont know, you seem to be too concerned about the Switch for someone who says it is doomed....

Just admit it, you wanna marry it.

Think before you hit the submit button.

Not to mention that this thread is a slightly adjusted variant of the thread you made yesterday.

How about if I changed the title to this instead?

Switch will sell less than 115 million if home console, less than 355 million if 3DS replacement/hybrid. Would it sound better?
