the wii u was also doing well before everything went south of the border, lets not forget. We will see how well switch does when the eventual dry spell in games begins (similar to its dead baby brother Wii U).

Sorry, bro. Switch is here to stay. Especially now that Pokemon seems to be coming its way. You better be happy with having the best console multiplats for now since I take it you're going all in on the X1X train.

Ugh seriously? I keep getting basic shit wrong lately. Guess our estimates were just a bit high. Or Nintendo hit 2 mil last month and just didn’t mention it.

Wrong. Do some research. Wii U stagnated in, like, January or February aka 2-3 months after launch. Switch is doing better now than it was a few months ago, and it will only improve from here.

To be fair, the Wii U did pretty good at launch. If "pretty good" means being outsold by every other system except the Vita and the DS in it's first 2 months, that is.

Seriously, people don't understand how much of a gigantic failure the Wii U was.



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.

Don't talk bad about Wii U. Sure, Switch's first seven months already comfortably beat Wii U's first twelve months, but Wii U lifetime could beat Switch's first twelve months.



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

It sold better than the Dreamcast. 

So it had to have done well.
