The apology isn't because of they thinking it would sell 20M and he saying 17M. But because people were saying he was a troll and hater for saying it would do 17M or that it wouldn't outsell PS4 in this year sales.

How many of these Nintendo fans were called haters and trolls?

Non-sensical question

He is complaining about being called a troll and hater for stating 17M sales forecast for the year for like over 6 months. You said like he can't complain because some Nintendo fans also predicted lower than 20M and dismissed his request... so how is this a non-sensical question?

"total number of million-seller titles during this quarter was 20, including the titles of other software publishers, 8 of those 20 million sellers came from third parties"
Dammit, now I am really curious to know the full 3rd party list. Also, this confirms Captain Toad reached the million, right?

The quote is wrong. The stats aren't for the quarter, but the nine months of the current fiscal year. Just to get possible confusion out of the way.

As for Captain Toad, we'd have to go over the list of Nintendo games. SSBU, Pokémon, Mario Kart, Odyssey, Splatoon, Zelda, Mario Tennis, Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario Party, Kirby Star Allies; those ten games are confirmed. Confirmed below 1m: 1-2-Switch, Xenoblade, ARMS.

The two remaining spots can go to Captain Toad, Labo Variety Kit, Xenoblade's Torna expansion and possibly the Nintendo-published Hyrule Warriors and Octopath Traveler, but I don't think they'll be counted like that. Captain Toad and Labo are the two most probable options.

So something that didn't happen in the first place? I am sure that troll and hater comments were directed at quickrick and I am quite sure that multiple people pointed that out on the days it happened.

Your certainty is wrong, myself have received some of these monikers on the predictions of Switch doing closer to 17 than 20M since the time of Nintendo forecast.

Wow. That´s a lot of info! Thanks for sharing...

Am I the only one who still don´t believe in 1,2,Switch sales numbers ????? It´s insane how such poor recieved game has sold so much!....

Nothing wrong with getting a prediction right, but a few of you are trying to turn this into an us vs them and that's just not needed. I get feeling vindicated (in fairness to you, I, too, went through a time where I was mocked for a prediction during my early days here ~ the biggest, in fact). The difference? I had no need to review those insults. I was vindicated in getting it right!

You should simply feel good that you got yours right, while also giving credit where due (Nintendo deserves it 100% for righting the ship ~ remember many of you did the same with the PS4 coming from the PS3).

Just consider that and please let the thread stay on track.



                                                                                                             

I thought they would hit 20 million, but I also thought they would have a January direct and better Q4 lineup. Both wrong. So I would revised down my 2019 prediction and multiple other things. That is the problem with Predictions they require things to happen to make them come true lol.

Call me pessimistic, but I hope the revised forecast is because they want to over deliver in the FY earnings. If not, this quarter is going to be very rough.

They haven't anything announced for this quarter that would shift major hardware? And its looking less likely a direct will announce anything significant so it makes sense if they're being Conservative.

Ohhhhh, just found out that Octopath being at 1.27 is a guess by us.Since Nintendo has only acess to the data pertaining the west, since thats where they publish it(Japan was self published by Square), the difference comes from media create sales numbers, which we only have knowledge of its retail sales.So the game sold well above 1.27.With shipped numbers and digital, it should be really close to 1.4 million.

Still not as good as I would have hoped, but great nonetheless.

I did think it would have done 1,5M myself, it might have fallen a bit short but it's still amazing nonetheless. Now, we just wait for their next piece of art !

 

Anywoo, as I already said, numbers for Switch fiscal year will probably fall right into my prediction with 18M shipped by the end, meanwhile software numbers are kinda going hairwire. Smash,MK8DX, Pokémon and other evergreens have all done fantastically ! Ok, I did expect Kirby to be at 2,6M instead of 2,4M ...

Words of wisdom, like always. I was just asking for some tolerance in this site.  If i was wrong i would admited publically with humor and moving on. I said that there are people who know where my comments come from, but there are others who i had polite and insightful discussions about sales, even from opposite sides and they've been wonderful, even changing my mind in some regards and i won't name them but they know who they are too. So it's possible to do that way, and i prefer that way.

I'll do my part. In fact, i'm already doing it because  i stopped the discussion from my part (Rol did the same) and i recognised (as i always do) Switch doing great too. In fact, if anyone  wasted any time searching my comments about Switch performance for hardware and software sales here the last few months they will only find  "impressive", "super impressive", "good", "super good", etc comments about it. In fact, i've been way harder on PS4 performance than anyone else....but i have that blue avatar with a 4 on it so the comments don't generate the same reactions.

This site is still the best to discuss sales and i keep my opinion on it.

I hear you.....believe me! Just always try to find the balance in the force. You'd be surprised how much better a topic goes when you can point out your correction prediction while also recognizing that the opposing view was simply another side of it. You're on the right track, just don't focus on the sticks & stones.



                                                                                                             

So out of the 22 million sellers on Switch, 7 of them are 3rd parties.
We obviously know that Octopath Traveler is one of them, what are the other 6?

My guessese
- Skyrim
- FIFA 18
- Crash N Sane Trilogy
- Sonic Mania
... That's the best I can come up with, I got no clue about the other two.
