It's also not a requirement to have a new 10M seller to have a great year HW sales-wise.

That someone think Nintendo, with the biggest portfolio in the video game industry, would run out of games to put out in the year a console turns 3 years old is somewhat funny.

Nintendo has always been reliant on evergreens and we're seeing another 3(4-5) releasing in 2019 that will drive sales for the first months of 2020 as well. And we're going to see another 3-5 evergreens releasing in 2020 - if someone of them are 10M+ sellers year 1 is irrelevant.

2020 safe for the Switch ? I see coming the start of the decline, I don't see how the sales momemtum can maintain without new 10M+ seller. There should be sure this year :

- Animal Crossing

- The 2 Pokemon (they should actually do 10+ each)

- Mario Maker 2 (my estimation is actually 9-10)

For 2020 what can we have actually ? Except an eventual new Mario Kart, I see absolutly nothing else.

Even a new Zelda based on the engine of BotW, would I think not reach 8M, following the rule of Majora.

Why would a BOTW successor likely follow the "rule of Majora"? It is unlikely it will require an add-on or revolve around a non-accessible gameplay gimmick. as Majora did.

And there are tons of potential Switch releases for 2020 and beyond; an all new 2D Mario or Donkey Kong Country, the next 3D Mario, new IPs, revivals of old IPs like F-Zero, Pikmin 4, Metroid Prime 4, Bayonetta 3, Monolith Soft's action RPG, third party deals for stuff like an exclusive Monster Hunter...

This notion that the Switch is suddenly going to get no more games after this year is just absurd.

New IPs can do 2-5M, not 10+.
Building a 10 millions seller takes more time.

Didn’t horizon and last of us sell 10 million as new IPs?

I'm only guessing but I think it's a celebration of the success for those two IPs.

Yes this is why I post this gif of Shepard.

It's hard to think of a game that could put PS4 on lead this March.



My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019
