Switch Lite only sells well because it's a handheld.



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

So this should be 5M worldwide sold ? 6+ shipped ?



Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
Fastest TI MASTER in Europe : rank Master V in 5min10
Current PB on Power Ranger (Game Gear) : 10min06 (World Record)

LET'S FACE THIS FACT : The Switch is the last physical video game system of the history who has a chance to beat PS2's sales.

I don't think we've received news from any non-Japanese country when it comes to Switch Lite sales. Can't do much of an extrapolation with only a single data point to go on.

That's a lot. Congrats to Nintendo. Switch Lite is a really nice piece of hardware.

Good to see the handheld only model do well over there.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Benji said Switch lite during holidays were AROUND the range of 1/3 sales in USA. Though i don't remember if he said in total or relative to Switch sales, i'll find that tweet give me a moment.

EDIT: Slighly less than 1/3 he said



2020 predictions: NSW 21m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m
(PS5 and XSX predictions will most likely change after we know enough about them)
