It's good to see Switch's success is worldwide.
Even Europe like it.
I wonder if by the next spring Nintendo is planning to release another revision to keep pushing sales.



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile


Another 300K. Like I said, it wont be long when it passes the 60m mark. News of the next iteration consoles hasn't affected it at all too.

What type of revision can they do at this point? If they redesign the main Switch unit, the dock would most likely need a redesign as well. Maybe a version without a screen, so it is just a regular home console?

Majority of people buying a Switch now won't be buying a PS5 or Xbox Series X at launch. If the Lockhart (Xbox Series S) is real and is $299 or less at launch than that might get some of them to buy it over a Switch. 

Switch Lite is $199 and regular Switch is $299, while the next gen consoles will likely be $499 or more at launch.

A TV Switch or Switch-only homeconsole is something I honestly don't see it coming. My guess would be that rumored "Switch Pro", similar to the New 3DS, with better overall performance and some noticeable upgrades, but not enough to be consider as a successor.

1.7m away from passing the NES mark for Switch.

Yeah that would make some sense. March 2021 would be four years after launch. It would help extend the life of the console. Were there any "New" 3DS exclusives?

Switch Pro could slide right in at $199 for Switch Lite Pro and $299 for Switch Pro, while the base systems get a price cut. At this point both have to cheap enough to produce where Nintendo can still turn a profit even if they were a bit cheaper.

IIRC, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D was a New 3DS exclusive.

And I agree with those prices.

Thank you. So just about every game was playable on the older 3DS systems, but got some improvements on the New 3DS. That seems to be a new standard. There were no PS4 Pro and Xbox One X exclusives, but a lot of games got some sort of enhancements running on the more powerful hardware.
