Sun/Moon numbers a proof Nintendo should continue release games on 3DS

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Sun/Moon numbers a proof Nintendo should continue release games on 3DS

Nintendo is just keeping the 3DS around until the Switch can prove it can sell. Once the Switch starts selling out the 3DS will be dropped fast.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

They should make the next Pokemon game DS exclusive. That's  a +200 million userbase.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

The console is their cash cow now, they make money on it, software and hardware.

When a console move 14.69 millions from one game in less than three months, it shows the ecosystem is alive and healty. Mario Maker also moved a lot of games in a short time.

The 3ds is actually improving its sales (hardware). It can easily last 2 more years.

That's not true at all. It was Pokemon that sold that much, not the 3DS itself.



Well we are getting another Fire Emblem title...
Plus it's still entirely possible that the West will get Miitopia...



Have a nice day...

Isn't that what he actually meant to say? Although I agree he worded it a bit funny and it may be open to interpretation, he inmediatley follows mentioning "Mario Maker also moved a lot of games", implying he was talking about game sales and not console sales. I'd be more worried about the last statement if I were you lol



Just release a 3DS sucessor switch.
without a dock, but can be turned(switched, putting the joy-con on larger part of screen) vertically for playing like a 2DS, And would also have a slot for DS and 3DS games. So, they can keep making 3DS games, and also sell switches.

That's a pretty ridiculous assumption.

There's a lot more overlap between DS and 3DS owners.



It's Pokemon. They could have made this game for Ouya and it would still sell over 15 Million. Doesn't prove anything.



Official member of VGC's Nintendo family, approved by the one and only RolStoppable. I feel honored.

Lmao why ppl are still debating about this?

Nintendo is ONLY keeping the 3ds just in case if the Switch bomb hard so they can make a true successor for 3ds. As of right now Switch is only replacing the Wii U.



A handheld gamer only (for now).
