Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Kimishima expects Switch sales to reach Wii levels

He just better hope it does better than Wii U. I do not see it coming anywhere near Wii, PS3, PS4 numbers tbh

Poor Nintendo! lol Wii levels?!.. This is the final nail in Nintendo's coffin for consoles. It will be handheld only & probably leasing it's 1st party games to Sony, Microsoft, Steam. I grew up with NES! I loved NIN! I had a day 1 NES, SNES, N64, GameCube. Unfortunaley they did not grow with me like PlayStation did so I left Nintendo for good after GameCube & it has only gotten worse since the early 00's. smh

If it's a handheld only like you say then doesn't that mean it's more likely to get to Wii levels?



Lol, not unless this turns out to be a multi form factor smart device.



Honestly, if it manages to reach or surpass the 3DS, that'd be fantastic.

I mean that is doable, and considering that they are combining their two divisions, that is what you'd hope for. The Wii U + the 3DS's sales is already at 80 million, and those are the lowest selling console AND handheld Nintendo has released.

We shall see. While I don't really expect it to happen, I think it's completely doable.

I confess... i burst into laughter.



Thing is. How many of those people own a Wii U AND a 3DS? Because I'm one of those people, and I sure ain't buying the Switch twice. I think it's possible that it can reach or surpass the 3DS, but I think anything past the 75-80 million is wishful thinking during this initial stage.

Wii got price cuts and bundles so bring on the Switch price cuts and bundles!



They predicted 100 million for Wii U too.

Don't feel bad for Nintendo, they have a lot of money on reserve (the Wii and DS years have been very good to them and just recently they posted a healthy profit). And as much as I'd love to have Nintendo's games on PS4, Xbox 1, and especially PC, it ain't happening any time soon. Just how this industry works, sadly.
