May I ask you what games you are talking about?

Because as far as I know, it took the Wii over a year to get it's first third party million sellers, and Switch ain't that old yet

Red Steel and Resident Evil 4 immediately come to mind. I don't think giving Switch another six months would change anything, because no third party game is close to passing one million yet.

More importantly though, that only served as an example of cherry-picking facts to support a desired conclusion, so don't approach this from an angle of determining which console was more accepted by gamers. What counts as a gamer already comes with subjective interpretations and what counts as evidence also comes with subjectivity.

My real stance on this matter is that such a question only exists in the first place because a group of disgruntled third parties and gamers couldn't stomach the Wii success and were looking for anything to diminish its success. So the biggest change I see between Wii and Switch is that the Sony console that is on the market at the same time isn't getting its ass kicked, therefore there is less of a need to lash out at Nintendo which in turn creates a more favorable perception of Switch, because it doesn't have to deal with the bullshit that was thrown at the Wii.

Ubisoft announced one million sold only by end of 2010 for Red Steel. Can't count this as an example.

Resident Evil 4 was a huge hit and the other consoles (save the PS2) didn't have their version at that time yet. That's as if DOOM wouldn't come out on the PS4/XBO until 2019

With examples like this, it looks more like you are either cherrypicking or remembering some things slightly wrong. Btw the first third party game on the Wii to break over 1M sales was Guitar Hero 3, followed by Sonic And The Secret Rings and RE4. Had you picked the first two out of the three here, and I would have accepted that argument without any fuss.

About my "desired conclusion", frankly wtf? Eine schamlose, rüpelhafte Unterstellung nenn ich das.

Both Zeldas got very highly praised by gamers and press alike (basically same level, though TP suffered years later, but not at launch), and both consoles sold about the same until week 45 as far as we know right now. So what is the reason for you that BotW is selling so much better than TP? I thought it would be because less of the console buyers where previously non-gamers and thus a higher portion of the console holders would be interested in some more complex games like Zelda than it was with the Wii
