What reasoning do you have that a Switch version would outsell the PS4 versions lifetime "in a short time"?
I did not say it would outsell it, I said that it would catch up to its numbers soon. Considering how well the Switch is selling everywhere, plus the fact that JRPGs sell really well in handhelds, it has a chance of reaching the PS4 numbers rather fast. Outsell it? Maybe, but it has the problem of being a very late port, which is SE's fault.
Sorry if I misunderstood. I saw reach PS4 numbers and equating that to matching lifetime sales. The rather soon meaning it would absolutely outsell it comfortably.
And as with the DS/PSP and 3DS/Vita, different games appeal to different fanbases. Even with the huge difference between those platforms in Japan, there were several cases of the smaller platform having multiplats sell better.
It's been very interesting to see what the Switch audience will adopt in the absence of handheld competition. Lots of these JRPG devs need them to survive.
