Taking into account the rapid life cycles of nintendo consoles, we will see the peak between this year and next year, and then begin the falls.

Sad, but probably true.

Ultimately by that time Nintendo hopefully creates more of a revenue shield with expanded media.

Do you know when are we getting Sony's report?

OT: Amazing sales, only could look bad just because the original goal was very high. 17 million forecast is very good 

Sony releases their earnings 3:15 AM EST 2/1 about 17 hours

Thank you!

However if it still manages 10-11 million in 2021 think it will be not as of huge concern to them. Remember Switch originally was labeled to do 8-10 million only in the first year.

Good numbers

Not true actually. Or at least not entirely.......

It depends on which nintendo consoles you are looking at. NDS had a run f about 7yrs before it was replaced by the N3DS which hasn't been officially replaced till this day. 

However, the NS peaking in its 3rd or 4th year is inline with conventional ($250-$399) consoles and is not due to some sort of "false" nintendo short life span. Every successful nintendo console has been in primary circulation for at least 6yrs. 



How does the calendar year shipments for 2017 match up with 2018?



Oh yeah, in line with my 18M prediction ! I mean since they're selling more units in Japan this year than they did last year so far, I think it might be a generalized case for the worldwide market.
