So are you making a timid prediction to try and balance out all of the bold predictions that VGChartz gets?

Nintendo projects 37.79M units will be shipped by March 31st, 2019, and it just needs 32.93M to outsell N64. Also, to beat GameCube's 21.74M by September 30th, 2018, Switch only needs to ship 1.98M per quarter, when it did 2.92M in both of the previous two non-holiday quarters.

Usually when someone says "bold prediction" they mean "a prediction I didn't do any research on and I want to sound profound for making it!" - in other words, they're being pretentious.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Around the Network

This prediction was pretty timid. As could the VGChartz estimations say, if the Switch keep the same pace and sells more than 1 million by the end of december, sold-through numbers could reach 30 millions by the end of 2018, and shipped numbers could be close to 33 millions.

Well, as of late Switch is sitting at 27.5 million units worldwide, so it's just 8 million away from surpassing the N64. :)

According to Nintendo's official sales data, N64 shipped 32.93 million units world wide in it's lifetime. So wouldn't that put VGChartz sell through figure of 27.5 million as of December 15th 2018 only 5.43 million behind?

Yes, but I said 8 million so that it'd be outselling the N64.

It'd be outselling the N64 by doing 5.44 million

Yeah, I said 8 million so that it'd be less specific.
