I wouldn't be surprised if same time, next year, Switch outsells the 3DS.

Same, even if it's a little soon for that to happen.

As for Holiday 2020 I don't see a new Pokemon game with the Sword / Shield Expansion Pass. BotW2 or new 3D Mario game seem to be the most likely for the big Holiday 2020 title. 

There is no way to know what specific games are coming out this year until the next Direct from Nintendo.  One thing we can say is that Nintendo will keep putting out first party games at roughly the same rate that they have been.

People keep wondering why the Switch is selling so well and ask how long can it last.  After all Nintendo systems never sell this well right?  Well this is the first time in decades when Nintendo could put all of their first party resources on one system instead of splitting them up between home and handheld systems.  Perhaps it would be more informative to look at the NES?  After all that is the only other time Nintendo could devote all of their resources to one system.  It also just happened to be the most dominant console in gaming history.

NES most dominant? It is hard to say for sure. Other dominant consoles were the Atari 2600 and PS2. Though, I guess for NES there were no other competitors that were able to see even a tiny bit of success.

So... if removing the Vita from the front page is something only ioi can do, does that mean adding PS5/Xbox something to the front page when they release will be a problem too?

Why doesn't ioi just sell it to the guys actually doing the work or give full access?



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

I'd be willing to buy the site from ioi, but it would probably cost too much for me to be able to afford it.

25 million for Switch in one year seems a bit far-fetched to me.

I'm gonna go with 20-21 million, though at this point it's hard to say. Animal Crossing will get them off to strong start, but whether they can maintain that momentum remains to be seen.

I agree here. Animal Crossing and Switch Lite will likely mean sales up 15-25% through the first half of 2020.

*outside of Europe and Brazil, where Nintendo struggled. Hard!

I suppose my statement only really applies to Japan and the US which were easily the two biggest markets at the time.  The NES was extremely dominant in the two main markets, especially the US.

Japan: 
NES 19.35m  (85%)
Sega 3.52m (15%)

US:
NES 33.29m (92%)
SMS 2m (6%)
Atari 7800 1m (3%)

Yeah, the problem comes once we reach the second half, which was stacked with games last year and culminated in the system's first core Pokemon. 2020 will have its work cut out for it matching that.

A small price cut ($179 Switch Lite and $249 standard Switch) will help offset the lack of a core Pokemon game, as well as BotW2 or new 3D Mario game. I'd like Mario Kart 9, but I don't see that happening until Nintendo's next console.
