Meh.

I never saw the Switch beating the PS4 as a big deal since the 3DS did so well over there. However the numbers show that the Switch will not only succeed the Wii U, 3DS but also the Vita. So we should get those 3rd party games from these system. This means that the Switch will be the system with the most Japanese games for all of  9th generation. The only I support it won't get is the western focused games like Resident Evil and Final Fantasy.

It is going to be RPG galore.

So it's going to have a combination of Vita and 3DS RPG support?

Good news for Nintendo, especially after the fiasco that was the Wii U.

Then again, the Wii U did put up quite the fight against the PS4 in Japan. Took almost 3 years for the PS4 to finally outsell it, iirc.

I'm sure that'll make your personal narrative easier to swallow.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

Fair to point out the 3DS was not doing well at all at $250, as a handheld. Just because you can take the Switch outside doesn't mean it was an easy sell for Nintendo.



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.

What would you know about my personal narrative? I don't even know who you are.

Love how all of Nintendo's successes are easy for people to explain away. If victory in the handheld space is so easy, why doesn't some other company get the number one handheld? I've asked this before, and heard "Other companies aren't interested," as though they hadn't tried and failed multiple times and handheld profits are in lesser currency than consoles.

^^^ Thank you. Add to the fact that the only traditionally huge Japanese games are Mario Kart and Splatoon this year.

Yes! We already see it happening  a little bit with the Switch replacing the Vita in PS4/Vita Muiltiplatform

The amount of Japanese post here from so many people outside of Japan is odd                                   

  People care about Japanesse sales because it determines who get all of the JRPGs. Some of us can't live without them!  



Tag:I'm not bias towards Nintendo. You just think that way (Admin note - it's "biased".  Not "bias")
(killeryoshis note - Who put that there ?)
Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

It is only a matter of time before the Switch overtakes the PS4 in Japan. I don't know how much time, but it will happen eventually.

I can see the Switch having a couple of 4 or 5 Million years, depending on what the Pokémon game ends up being like.

Put that hand in hand with Dragon Quest XI/ Builders 2, X number of "Mario" games, Animal Crossing and a bunch of mid-tier games like Tales of, SMT, Xenoblade, Fire Emblem, Kirby, Yoshi and Metroid?

It's gonna be a bloodbath. 



Congrats to the NS. I hope that it can keep it up.
