I'd be far more surprised if that said UK, or North America. I mean, how many preorders is it?

Can't pre-order Switch at any of the usual UK stores anymore. GAME, shopto, Amazon, gameseek are all sold out of initial allocation. GAME is allowing pre-orders for their next shipment.

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

Of course we have to take it with a grain of salt because it's 1 retailer in one little country.

But... Sweden is a Playstation country where Nintendo is even less relevant than Xbox.

So to already have more preorders than the PS4 in one retailer in Sweden is still somehow positive.

Okay. Nintendo should have had more ready, gotcha.

Nintendo had more ready that Sony, since as topic is titled "More Switch pre-orders than PS4"

You know Zelda can swing sales right? If this launched without it, I doubt it'll do as well. It's good it's doing well, but I just don't think it would do as well.

You don't say?

You should inform other companies of this major insight you have. A major game makes people want your system.

"Hardware design isn’t about making the most powerful thing you can.
Today most hardware design is left to other companies, but when you make hardware without taking into account the needs of the eventual software developers, you end up with bloated hardware full of pointless excess. From the outset one must consider design from both a hardware and software perspective."

Well, I mean the Switch has sold out in all retailers here too. I think many are underestimating the concept of taking console gaming truly on the go and how much people were wanting this. Longevity, that I'm skeptical on, but at launch, everyone's gonna be all over the Switch.



Launch pre-orders mean pretty much nothing.



That's nice.



Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

I would argue that webhallen is the place where most swedes go for TV-games and tech.

He says that the Switch preorders surpasses the PS4's. That the preorders are sold out. And they rekommend people to stand in line if they want one at launch
