Switch did nearly 400k on a week where nothing special happened, and it also passed 104M.  Folks, the Switch cliff is never going to come.  I hope most people realize this now.  If you are hoping for a Switch cliff, then abandon all hope now.

People are thinking Switch will plummet quickly like certain past systems, i.e. the Wii or DS (eventually).  The Switch is actually performing like a past system, but that system is the NES/Famicom.  That is the last time that Nintendo could focus all of its resources on supporting one system.  It was also the most dominant system in history, at least in Japan and US.  The Switch is a return to form.  It's just as dominant in Japan as the Famicom, and it's doing extremely well in the other parts of the world.  The NES sold for several years after the SNES launched.  Expect the Switch to keep selling too.

Most people realized this years ago, it's mainly just brought up as a joke.

I recall as recently as 2019 that 2/3 of people voted the Switch would never outsell the PS4.
