The spectacular timing of the launch is what made it so successful, imo.
At the Switch Launch, it's only competition besides Zelda was 1-2 Switch and snipperclips. Only like what, four games to compete with at launch? Had this launched in last November it would do 300k at most.
Bet with Intrinsic:
The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
