Was that a bit more than people were expecting? Seems like it by a few 100k



OP needs numbers for key software, (can be found below) but otherwise, much more comprehensive than the other thread.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Seems like they didnt adjust there forecast down, there is no way for Switch to ship 20 Million by End of March 2019

15mil next 2Q. Holiday Q does 11mil and Q4 doing 4mil isnt that far out of reach imo

Yeah I just don't see how they plan on shipping 15 million in 2 quarters. 11 million and 4 million in those quarters is just way too high

I guess they have incredible confidence in the Pokemon spinoff, and Smash. I'm with you though, I don't think it will happen. In fact, I think they will miss by a good margin. 

Next quarter will be a huge tell at the true projection for the Switch. If they can indeed move 10 - 12 million units, then they may really be on its way to great success, if they end end up in the 6 - 8 million range, then I think it will be a sign that it really is coming to an end for Nintendo in the hardware business. 

For the Quarter, things are good, but the future is still not certain.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

A very nice growth from a weak Q1.
Still not reaching those 20M tho.

Not reaching 20 million in a single fiscal year is not the end all to a company at a hardware perspective.

 

Otherwise Sony and Microsoft have just as dark of a future as Nintendo do.

 

Wii U didn't even sell 20 million in 5 years, yet Nintendo are now today as successful and relevant as ever.



So 22.86 million Switch's shipped by end of september?

Does that means theres only like 1.8m Switch on shelves atm?
