I'm going to just repost my comment from the main article, as I think it's a good summary of my ideas.

"Based on where the game sits in relation to others on Nintendo's "bestsellers of 2017" lists, I'd imagine several other 3rd party games either have crossed the mark, or are also soon to do so."

I definitely agree with those suggesting that Stardew Valley, Rocket League, Mario + Rabbids etc. are getting closer or past the marker. Skyrim will get there eventually, as well.

We already know M+R topped the million weeks ago even physical and it's doing well on eshop so it might be close to 1.5 millions if vgchartz isn't overtracking it.

Overcooked did amazing in 2017 too, forgot about it.



It sold near a million combined on all consoles, but Switch version sold the most. You need to edit the title and OP.

This game is awesome and everyone should try it. Also everyone I know who played this thinks is awesome. Even people who don't game! I am not surprised by these sales. I hope this convinces Sega to bring more of their classics on the Switch. Maybe something like Monkey Ball or some Dreamcast titles?

Also the game is perfect for the Switch. You can play two players right out of the box and getting two more controllers is not as expensive as other consoles. If someone else has a Switch then all you need to do is bring their pair.  This game is so fun on 4 players. On par with Mario Kart and Bomberman.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

The thing is, i hope companies understand that if old ports like this can sell millions, a new game of this sort can sell even more.

I just hope its not like a Wii situation.

"Wow look at how good these old ports are selling, lets use the profits to fund our over budget AAA games on PS/XB/PC!!!"

Right! But i think Switch might end up like a savior for some games that do not perform well on other platforms and it's a really good idea. Like TEW2 for instance. But i think we will get some exclusives as well seeing how well M+R is performing and its not like they announced 2 years prior and marketed the snickers out of it. 

 

But anyway, Nintendo has only 1 child to take care of now so in the worst case scenario, we will start seeing more games late 2018/2019 to give studios time to get to the Switch.
