One thing helping Skyrim for Switch is the fact that there will not be a huge amount of games in the first year of the Switch's life. Less competition from other games means better sales numbers for Skyrim.

However less games in the first year means less console sales so a smaller audience to sell to. On uk forums I've seen a large number of cancellations for Switch, people who were first excited for the console then came to realise there wasn't much apart from Zelda that they wanted that had been announced. Some have actually chosen to get a s/hand wii u instead of Switch. Console stock still widely available in UK for launch day. I'm not saying its the same in the US though but not expecting the UK to do good numbers. I noticed in Game that they haven't made much effort to promote Switch and likely it will end up at the back of the store soon if sales numbers are poor. However uk marketing has been very minimal, no superbowl equivilent advertising here. I think Nintendo are focusing more on the US perhaps because of greater disposable income.

 

Wouldn't that be something if used Wii U's outsold Switch in the UK at launch. If Nintendo is concentrating on the US launch then Skyrim for Switch should sell better here in America. Also there are a lot of people here in the US getting their income-tax returns and have money to spend right now. Should help.

Yes I'm getting it because I've heard its the "HD version" and I've never played skyrim before. I've heard it is a fantastic game so I will try it out when it comes out.

All skyrim versions are capable of HD.



To support Elder Scrolls on Switch, yes I am as long as it looks better than the 360 version. It does not have to be special edition level on the PS4, but no direct ports. That said, gonna wait on DF.

Sure, if they can get it out before December, it would have been a launch purchase but that isn't going to happen so they need to have it available before I blow all my cash on Christmas.

According to the latest list I have seen, Skyrim for Switch is supposed to be Q3. So your Christmas money is safe.

Yeah, I love the Switch and I'm getting a Switch day one. On top of that, somehow I've never played Skyrim yet. The two are a perfect match for me! (Especially if it releases a bit before the major influx of holiday season titles)



Damn a lot of people are buying this for Switch, and a lot thinking about it



the 4million switches, and predicting that 1/3 of them would buy skyrim based off this poll is quite flawed. The thing is VGchartz is literally less then 5% of the Nintendo Switch purchasers.
That being said I Voted No only because I have it on PC :D

The poll is the only data I have to go by. That's why I am asking everyone if they are buying Skyrim for Switch. Predicting how many Switch systems will be sold through this year is just pure speculation, but we do know that 2 million are already sold. Will the Switch sell 2 million more in the nine months left in 2017?
