Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. Winner gets avatar control for a month.

Bet with palou: I say Mario Odyssey will sell less than 900k FW in the US, he says more. Winner gets avatar control for a month.

Might as well just put switch #1. There is no chance of anything else.

Slarvax, add "3DS #1 handheld" to the thread title.

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

We all know Switch won and Xbox isn't selling any big numbers until E3 so yeah, pretty obvious month. Exciting year tough, how will Switch hold the moment, what will happen at E3 on all 3 camps and how will Scorpio sell

Great time to be a gamer of any or all platforms

Now that the Wii U is out of the way, we might get much more substantial Nintendo PR again.

I wonder if the Switch can break the March record set by the Wii? If I remember correctly it sold 700k in 2008.
