How do the hardware numbers compare to the Wii and 3DS?

Wii shipped 9.72 million as of June 30, 2007

Switch outselling Wii U's LTD total within a year is pretty much a lock now! Selling 6 million more in 4 months that include the holidays should be easy, provided Nintendo has enough Switches available.

Nintendo raised their forecast to 14m, bringing the expected total to 16.74m by the end of March 2018. Remove a generous 1.24m for March 2018 because that is Switch's 13th month and we are still looking at 15.5m through twelve months. Wii U's final total is 13.56m. There's actually a chance that Switch will beat Wii U in ten months.



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

Describes your trolling attempt very well.

so why putting in effort replying when you're sure it's trolling? maybe because you secretly know this whole thing is the definiton of a straw fire?

So first you call it "weak" and "meh".  And now you call it a "straw fire".  The idiom meaning strong start but poor finish.

So which is it?  Weak and meh or a stong start?

You can't even be consistant in your criticisms.

If you're talking about your stay here before being banned, I think we all know really.

Arms and 1-2 Switch both hit a million too. Not bad for new IPs on a new console



I think the potential for Sales numbers for up to 31/12/17 are entirely related to how many Nintendo can scrape together to ship! 18m possible if Nintendo were able to supply them! Although the sky could be the limit, in reality the total will be restrained to whatever Nintendo is able to ship. Pretty sure whatever number they can ship, they will sell. Personally, if they can manufacture and ship enough, i expect the forecast to be adjusted even farther upwards!

They had already hit 1m last quarter. Their numbers increased by 0.17m and 0.15m this quarter.

Say What!!!!! 

Switch Slaying brings these boys back from the bridge! 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Weeeell, these are certainly good numbers ! Zelda and MK8 will both be above the 5M sold afer the Holidays. Arms doesn't show good legs but still did "decently" for a new IP.

Total software sales suggest relative success for 3rd party on the platform (Bomberman + SF II = 1M+ ) and the indie scene flourishing as well.

So I expect the Switch to be at 12M unit sold after the Holidays
