Benji said Switch sales were under 2m as a joke.

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

No leaks yet.... the only thing we know so far from benji is that NS numbers are below 2 Million... contrary to what many NS fans predicted. .

Im confused up until recently he was saying NS was 2m easy and was saying it could go as high as 2.5m

Anyone got a link to his post?

Wait a moment, did you read this off his post that he'd basically try and hide from Twtr and Era flaming if Switch sales were below 2 million?

It's pretty funny tbh

I should have quoted someone before. I saw the post and it was plain he was making a joke.

Well let's see by how much Switch have outsold PS4 and X1, perhaps even combined.

Sorry i messed up. There was also some text saying that would be him dodging angry comments on twitter and reset IF Switch was under 2m. For some reason the text didn't come out on my post. I could try and copy the page of the thread if you like.

Thanks, Yeah that makes a lot more sense now :D

I still believe that the PS4 outsold the Xbox and I believe that it sold closer to the Switch than has been speculated so far. I do not believe that the switch sold more than PS4+Xbox combined. I think Benji has a pulse on sales but I don't think he has the entire picture. Also, if holiday sales were down at gamestop per Benji's post at 6.1%

This indicates that HW for December of 2018 may infact be less than hardware for December 2017. There is simply no way that the Switch could be past 2 million.
And if it did, and HW was around the same 4.5 million sales, there would be more sales coming from ps4 and xbox one combined. 3DS has tanked YoY.
