Zelda won't do nothing. For a console to succeed they need multiple games like Zelda and third party games. As for my estimation it will do Wii U numbers if PS4 Neo takes off smoothly.

I am not so sure, Zelda Twilight Princes done great things for Wii reagardles Wii Sport, actually Zelda Wii version was sold out everywhere at launch. Definitely moved lotsa a consoles.

No one said Zelda will only big launch titles, new 3D Mario is also very possibly, and definitely there will be some other strong 1st party and 3rd party exclusives for NX launch or launch window.

Wii U didnt had nothing similar at launch, actually had weak launch and 1st year games.

My prediction:

-NX will sell better than Wii U - 99% chances
-NX will sell better than GC - 70% chances
-NX will sell better than N64 - 50% chances



I will wait for the price announcement.

You heard here first, $300 and power similar to PS4. ;)



This NX sounds amazing given we don't know a fucking thing about it!

All we know for certain is its gonna have a huge Wii U game at launch.

I genuinely don't believe it will outsell the XB1 ... No chance.
I would like it to, but don't see it happening.

But will not reach PS4 level sales.  Overall I think that with Zelda as a launch title, proper releases of classic games like a new 3D Mario, Metroid, NEW Star Fox (not a cheap N64 remake), 3D Donkey Kong, Pokemon, Fire Emblem etc we could see a very STRONG start.

 

Follow that up with newer franchises like Xenoblade and Splatoon with a few third party contracts for other exclusice titles, and the NX will be a success for Nintendo and in the end profitable.  The reason it will not reach PS4 sales is because the PS4 has become the home for 3rd party multiplats.  Just having those games on NX will not be enough to beat Playstation at this time, but Nintendo has more than enough IP (more than any other console maker) that with proper 3rd party support (NX exclusive titles) it will have a powerful identity as the console everyone will want ALONGSIDE their PS4 or X1.

 

I also feel that while the NX will not reach PS4 level sales, it could still outsell the NEO version as NEO will offer nothing new to the table, while the NX will be a whole new experience.

 

EDIT:  To put a number on it, 60 mil.  It will not sell as much as PS360, but will outsell the X1 and N64.  It will also be profitable for Nintendo.

Well, I Don't see Xbox One selling much more than Nintendo 64, or even more than Nintendo 64, if the Xbox One is Down YOY in the end of the year this will not change in the following years, we need to wait and see how Gears of War 4 will peform because as for now is the Last Well-known franchise game  to launch for Xbox One until they announce something else, and i don't think that a game made by Zero's Designer or a Open-World JRPG would push a lot of Xbox One and became a main new franchise of this generation.

The X1 is going drop off in sales hard if Gears 4 doesn't do anything, and we already saw Halo fail.  The PS4 has everything worth while that is on the X1 for the most part.  The NX can EASILY pass X1 if Nintendo does it right.  It really is not that hard a thing to do.

What if the xb1.5 actually comes out?  Or the ps4k? clearly things may change for all consoles in the next few months.  the nx could be an also ran again come march of next year...



It is near the end of the end....

I dont know about Xbox One. It's still outselling the 360, so it might be difficult.
Like I've said before though, just for not having the Wii or DS name it's gonna sell much better than 3DS and/or Wii U. People dont realise how much those names damaged the systems potential.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.
