"i want to know if Nintendo decisions turned out to pay off or not" Are you serious!? Look how Switch and games for Switch are selling, Switch sale are making records and Nintendo made huge profit and FY 2017. will year when they made biggest profit from around 2009, also Switch lineup doesn't have any drouths compared to huge Wii U drouths in 1st year (you constantly ignoring that fact), so its obvious its paying them off big time.
Yes you are, you still acting like Switch yet need to be launch and to prove itself, totally ignoring clear facts like that Switch and Switch games are selling great and that constantly have games compared to Wii U, also constantly questioning Nintendo Switch decisions even its obvious that Nintendo Switch decisions are gaving great results, with all that you constantly pushing negative tone.
How many times does history have to show you that nothing is written in stone? For better or worse, just because a console/game starts one way, doesn't necessarily mean it will end the same way.
So yeah, Nintendo had a great 2017. And then what? Consoles are automatically going to fly off shelves for years to come because it sold really well in 2017?
Switch has a lackluster first semester. Period.
When you compare it to last year, the difference is just enormous.
Sorry if i don't take things for granted and ignore how Nintendo managed to sell Switch in it's first year.
Sony sold PS4 on the promise of a great machine and games (best games, best deals). And it delivered year after year.
Nintendo sold Switch on the promise of portability and to also sell the console it had to use not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 of it's best franchises to sell the console. Not to mention that two of these IPs (Zelda and Mario) were a breath of fresh air for their respective franchises, which yielded very good results.
So, to do this well in 2017 it had to use a lot of ammo. And why is that relevant? Because Nintendo is too dependent on it's franchises to sell it's systems.
So exactly does that mean for it's future, when Nintendo did so much in 2017? For a machine that needs 1st party offerings so much, can it pull it off like Sony and be consistent? Remains to be seen.
But for you, of course, those questions are wrong.
How can i doubt Nintendo's ability to sustain Switch's success in the years to come? I'm just negative, crazy, etc., etc.
Looking back at past consoles, if Nintendo hadn't fail so much, i'd probably agree with you.
Again you are wrong. Not single one console failed when had such a strong 1st year similar to Switch, PS1, PS2, DS, Wii and PS4 are all consoles that sold around 15m in first year same like Switch. Switch concept is selling itself, also games like Zelda BotW, MK8D, Splatoon2 and Mario Odyysey will keep selling Switch in this year, but offfcourse there will be some other good and big Switch games in 2018. and future years, you act like Switch dont have nothing for this year.
Yes 1H compared to last year is weaker if we talk about big titles and hardly that Nintendo will ever have repet in 2017. year if we talking about strong games, but actualy Switch this 1H will have more games than Switch last year in 1H, and those games will most likly be enugh to keep Switch momentum.
Man you really don't know anything, Switch is not PS4, they are selling from different reasons, Switch is selling of first place beacuse great concept and great Nintendo games, PS4 is selling on first place because multi platform games. Switch will continue to have great and big Nintendo games offcourse. Also talking about 2017. Switch sales, dont forget that most of time Switch in 2017. had stock problems, and we arleady know that Nintendo plan to sell around 20m Switch units in 2018.
How Nintendo sustained Wii success or DS success!? You can look Nintendo past consoles and only in last 3 generation you will see that Nintendo consoles that were selling from start ended successful consoles, consoles that struggling with sales from start failed (GC and Wii U), Switch is obviously success, but you still fail to see that.
Everything you wrote is wrong, negative, ignores clear facts, so I relly dont want to bother reply to you any more, keep living in world where Switch doesnt sell like crazy, where Switch is not success and Nintendo don't have anything to continue to support Switch this or next years..
