What do you guys think? Currently I could foresee the Switch being close to DS numbers in NA, Japan and easily surpassing the DS in "Rest of the World" region. However, I'm noticing the potential Achilles heal for the Switch that might prevent it from surpassing PS2 or DS sales is Europe, where I haven't yet seen the Switch blow up to DS sales numbers in sales and the Switch is currently at a decent deficit against the Wii. While it seems likely the Switch will still outsell the Wii in Europe by having a longer lifespan the Switch isn't showing many signs that it could sell well over 40 Million in Europe. Which would keep in relatively far below the PS2 and DS which sold 50M+ in Europe.
The DS sold 11 Million Units in it's best year in Europe while the Switch in 2020 sold 7 Million in Europe, which is widely considered the peak year for the Switch. So unless the Switch still has yet to reach it's peak year or has a much longer lifespan of sales than the DS then I find it unlikely it could sell over 40 Million like some are speculating. We have to see.
I see the Switch selling 38M in Europe.
