Lol.

I can't defend the Wii U.  All I can say is that if a bunch of people skip your console one generation, then it looks like a good idea to port the best games to the next generation.  See also: PS3 and PS4.

I'm hoping Tokio Mirage Sessions, Fatal Frame V and Super Mario Maker getting ported, these are still missing but pretty great Wii U games, the first one in particular for me.

Mario Maker was my favorite Wii U game.  Also I think it would have been a much better launch game than Nintendoland.  People love Mario, and it gives a very good reason why you'd need the Wii U gamepad.

A bad launch is one of the many reasons why the Wii U did not do well.

Why not also Xenoblade Chronicles X?

Because 2 is already out, might get confusing for non-fans. Otherwise, yes, certainly

There's a new King of the Jungle, and it's name is the Nintendo Switch.

Iirc last year Switch outsold the PS4 during the Holidays. I think we will go back to seeing the PS4 outselling the Switch consistently on a weekly basis sometime in January. 

I'm not so sure. The PS4 was down 10% in 2018 compared to 2017. If that happens again, it loses another 1.8M and is at 16.2M. The Switch won 28% in 2018. Let's saythe Switch grows only 10% in 2019, then it is at 18.6M for the year. So I don't think PS4 manages to outsell Switch consistently in 2019.



3DS-FC: 4511-1768-7903 (Mii-Name: Mnementh), Nintendo-Network-ID: Mnementh, Switch: SW-7706-3819-9381 (Mnementh)

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

Dont think switch outsold ps4 by 2.4m. It outsold ps4 by like 1.5m in japan and north America but id think it was even or ps4 outsold switch in europe and rest of the world since there was a price cut in europe and Australia

Nintendo just announced Switch sold just over 30 m at the end of January but vgchartz have them over 30 m as of 5th of jan.  As i predicted vgchartz most likely overtracked the switch in Europe in December. I mean how can it outsell the ps4 by nearly 1 m. Europe i hear is sony land



Hi there! Are there any specific numbers on the different console versions? 

There is a huge difference between 2013 launch of Xbox One + PS4 compared to 2018 for example... has anyone hard numbers or knows how to get them?
