So know you are using useless jokes, instead of going after my porposal? Please tell me why it is unreasonable.

For the people who aren't Mario fans and who in general want to play Zelda and maybe other action rpgs/action games such as Xenbolade 2, not having a pro controller bundle is a wasted opportunity. 

But you said "lunch bundle"...

But if you insist on a serious answer, your proposal is unreasonable because a Switch without Joy-Cons isn't a Switch out of the box anymore. That causes headaches for marketing the system.

I did? typo lol. 

Maybe it's not, but it allows Nintendo to go after a different market of gamers who would be more interested in Zelda, then in any of their other franchises. 

Their are a lot of gamers who play action rpgs such as Skyrim/Witcher 3, who don't care about the Switche's party and motion capabilities, and such a bundeal would appeal to them. 



Around the Network

It could but as stated above by other users Zelda games typically don't sell 10 million units.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

If Zelda BOTW perennially sales it is quite possible



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

10m might be a bit too high. Let's wait and see. My guess is 8m on both systems on both distribution channels lifetime.



Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

It can but depends on Switch sales. I personally think it has a chance but will take a while to achieve it

I don't think so, Twilight Princess couldn't do it (with 100M Wii owners)



Between Wii U and Switch, it's still a stretch but not totally impossible. Obviously, it will takes many years to get there and many Switch consoles sold first.

It definitely can, but I am sure a large chunk of Wii U gamers are jumping ship to the switch. Somewhere between 8 to 12 million LTD  between both platforms, kind of like the last of us sold (between two platforms). This is implying that Zelda has legs.

I don't get that logic. Somebody who plays such RPGs would certainly see value in the ability to play such games anywhere they want (even if it's only in any room inside of their home), so a Switch without Joy-Cons would be a bad deal. Nevermind that the Joy-Cons combine for a conventional controller anyway.

What do you estimate is the size of the market you speak of?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

It depends on how good the Switch will do, but I doubt it will sell that much.

I thought the same thing about your metascore prediction though, so that might be a good sign.
