Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo is committing a lot of the same lethal mistakes they did with the WiiU, and more.

Owning a 3DS or a Vita dosent mean they dont own a PS4, a Wii U or a XOne either.And that 80% seems to come out of nowhere.And even being such a owner dosent mean you use it exclusively as it, specially since we have hard data that the usage of the Switch is about evenly split.But fine.If thats all you mean, I guess you could be right, though i dont see what useful conclusion you could arrive from it.

I just had the impression, and Im guessing that Im not alone, that you were implying more than that.

Exactly.  Case in point, I bought a Switch, and yes I own a 3DS.  But, I also own a Wii U and an Xbox One.  The Switch didn't replace my 3DS exclusively.  It replaced all of them, because I am using as both a console and a portable.

Also, owning a 3DS or Vita doesn't mean you bought a Switch to replace them.  For me, I have a 3DS but didn't have any current gen home consoles until the Switch.  When BOTW was announced, I was prepared to get a Wii U to play it, but then the Switch was later announced so I got that instead.  And I haven't replaced the 3DS with the Switch--I've bought games for both systems regularly since purchasing the Switch.  So for me, the Switch is thought of more as a home console, even though I had a 3DS too.

I am saying it is selling like a handheld.  To be precise, I think 80%+ of Switch owners also own a 3DS or Vita.  It is mostly selling to the handheld market.

Perception and use is somewhat different, and I think you are right about them.  For example, a lot of people may just use it as a hybrid and view it as a hybrid.  But I think think most of these people also own a 3DS or Vita.  I'm only commenting on sales behavior and not on how people actually use the device or perceive it.

I am not implying anything more.  

So many people on this forum are just arguing for their favorite console.  I am trying to understand the state of the market.

Dont play victim please.People are arguing against you because not only your conclusions are based on "guesses", and thats putting it midly, but also against posts like this, that when  you are presented with evidences that state otherwise, you either deny or deflect.

Im not saying this to be mean, Im just pointing out that not everything is about the console wars.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

But Splatoon is more value than all combined PS3 games.

OT: Switch is a success, Wii U was a flop and OP was wrong.
