I'm sure 25+ Million sellers like GTA, RDR, 20+ Million sellers like COD, 10 - 15 Million sellers like Fifa & Star Wars don't eat into SIE software sales. /s
Hold on, you think MK8 is "well on route" to hit 40 - 50 Million on just the Switch, when it might not reach 30+ Million until 2022? Yeah, Mario Kart is not moving those kind of units, otherwise it would be well past 30 Million lifetime at this point in time. 50 Million is a pipedream unless Nintendo ports Mario Kart 8 for their next console. Again, I'm not sure why you think SM is capped at 20 Million lifetime, it can easily finish with 25 - 30+ Million. Its not like PS4 software is going to stop selling in 2021. Take TLOU, which sold 10+ Million units on the PS3, likely half of those sales coming after the PS4 launch.
Why are you attributing Switch hardware sales to just Nintendo software sales? Switch being a hybrid console is a big factor. Look at the WiiU or even the Gamecube. It had many, major Nintendo IP, and still ended up as an absolute embarrassment. Even the novelty of the Wii was a bigger factor in moving units compared to Nintendo exclusives. Of course, Sony won't hit 120+ hardware sold without third party support, but Nintendo exclusives don't guarantee 100+ Million hardware sold either, they might not even guarantee 30+ Million units. I don't use handhelds in this comparison because its a completely different market (lower price of entry, lower priced games, different tech expectations, etc). What do you think happens if PS4 hardware and software prices follow the DS hardware and software prices? How about the other way around?
You're downplaying the legs of PS4 games while giving the best case scenario for Switch titles. Mario, BoTW, BoTW2, Smash, Pokemon, are now all on pace for 30+ Million lifetime? Please. Nintendo IP making 30+ Million units sold look like child plays is just another pipedream. Most of those games will finish around 25 Million lifetime, BoTW and Mario aren't even at the 20+ Million mark yet. If you think the Switch will finish with two titles that sell 50+ Million units, its no wonder why you think Sony isn't close to Nintendo's level, since you're living in some kind of dreamland. How about you have a realistic assessment about Nintendo software sales before posting.
Clearly you are as clueless as it gets, MK8 Deluxe on Switch hit 29 million this pass September. It will blow pass 30 million by the end of this year. Its hilarious you want to acknowledge the legs on Sony games like Nintendo games dont have far superior legs lol. If Spiderman can hit 25 million, then Mario Kart and 50 million is well within reach. The PS4 is dead and yet you trust it to sell millions of more games but a currently peaking console like Switch you doubt? If those PS4 games have so much life left then so does these Switch games.
So we are back to excuses I see, what do you think would happen if Nintendo had the 3rd party support to push their consoles to higher heights? I dont give a rats ass why you don't count handhelds, Sony tried them and failed miserably. What if handhelds had the hardware power? I see the Sony fandom is just to much in your blood lol. You mention powerful home consoles would sell better if they were as cheap as handhelds but don't acknowledge the downsides of handhelds being cheaper makes getting major 3rd party support much harder. You want every advantage for Sony but never consider the other side of things. Every decision comes with the upsides and downsides. Powerful home consoles get 3rd party support that sell systems that weaker handhelds do not get. Of course you only want to talk about the pricing advantage handhelds have over powerful home consoles.
I could careless about the rest of that nonsense you mentioned regarding Gamecube, WiiU, and Wii. Its just more pathetic Sony fan excuses, trying to downplay Nintendo's clearly superior first party support. We can say Nintendo games have both had success and fails at pushing Nintendo hardware to 100 million, while Sony has never had any success at pushing their own hardware to 100 million without 3rd parties.
Tell me, how much do you think TLOU, TLOU II, Horizon, GoW, GoT, Uncharted 4, and Spiderman will sell with remasters? Then tell me how much do you think Mario Kart, AC, BOTW, BOTW 2, Mario Ody, Poke S&S, and Smash will sell with remasters? As of September, MK8 Deluxe has hit 29 million(37 million w/ WiiU version) and AC is at 26 million. Smash has surpassed 20 million, BOTW, Mario Ody, and Poke SS are nearing 20 million. While Sony has confirmed TLOU at 20 million and the rest is speculation, hopes and dreams lol.
