God I love watching people go fucking rabid anytime someone says something less than excellent about the Switch. We have way too little information to be able to confidently predict it's trajectory going forward and yet we have people acting like they've seen into the future haha.



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

Nope... with the data we have, we can safely say it will sell over 130M... anyone saying less is a hater. And of course PS4 numbers show it can't sell over 110M.

Hahahaha you joke, but that's not far off from some of the sentiments here.

we only have PS4 numbers so far.... but it ll likely be something like this:

PS4 20.2m
XB1 ~7m
NSW ~12-13m

XB1 is already at 7.9 million, it will likely sell closer to 8.5/9 million this year.

The Switch is at 10.9 so I think 13 million is out of reach now.

That would only be true if X1 wasn't heavily overtracked on VGC, which it surely is...by 1-2 million.

I honestly haven't payed much attention to how accurate the tracking of the Xbox One has been since we don't get official numbers anymore, what makes you think it's so heavily overtracked?

I'm pretty sure I read exactly like this during the November Amazon threads. I was laughing so hard since it wasn't meant to be sarcastic.

You are on record to confidently make predictions and draw conclusions about the Switch's future with much less information being available. But now that we have more information than one year ago and things didn't play out as you thought, you are changing your stance to "we can't know"? That's rich.



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

Am I? I'm pretty sure as far as the Switch goes I've said that I don't think it will outsell the Wii, I might have mentioned that I think the Switch will end up somewhere between 70-90 million units, but I've never tried to defend either of those as being any more than a guess. The only really concrete prediction or point I've made about Switch sales as far as I can remember is saying that it might be tough for the Switch to beat the PS4s first year. Even then it was a "eeehhh I don't know, that seems unlikely" and not the "Haha what?!?! You don't think the Switch is going to sell 100+ million units and crush everything forever?!?!? LOLOLOLOL" That this thread (and site) has been full of.

Actually it's ones saying things like "Switch will fall off a cliff in 2018" without any proof whatsoever that start all the trouble.

I have read it several times... there were one like two days ago also saying it was certain Switch will sell over 130M and PS4 had no chance to cross 110M.
