Nothing wrong with that, Nintendo games alone just aren't enough by themselves anymore to really make a console a massive success. More often than not Nintedo's own games are among the best on any of their console's, but for a wider audience the console is going to need support from big third party developers as well in my opinion.

3DS did well enough for a Nintendo only console. Ok so there are a few Japanese 3rd party games that do well but for the most part its a Nintendo/ Pokemon machine. Nintendo just need to support Switch like they did 3DS and not how they treated WiiU. Seriously look at just how many games Nintendo publish on 3DS

Of course there's always the chance that Nintendo games are going to be enough. The Wii is a very clear indicator of that, but that would require that one or more of the Switch's games becomes a mainstream hit like Wii Sports or Wii Fit. Or maybe a Pokemon game on the Switch can do that at some point, but I'm still a bit sceptical about its chances without strong 3rd party support. I want it to be successful, because that is always a good thing for gaming in general. Right now I'm just just not quite convinced yet. It'll probably outsell the WiiU comfortably regardless, just based on the better marketing and identity the Switch has.

Too early for sucha predictions (even if that is possible), we dont know how much revisions and difrent types of hardware (Switch Mini/Pocket, Switch Pro, Switch VR/AR addon...) Switch will have, but in any case Switch definitely can easily sell at least couple of times better than Wii U did.

That's the very nature of predicting, darling. To forescast something that has yet to happen. Just your rough bet.

I think 70 million is an optimistic but safe guess.


Around the Network

70 million

When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Since I have stated before and even made a thread about some time ago(albeit we had little information at the time), for the sake to sticking with what I said, I think it will sell more than 100 million lifetime

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

I stay with my prediction from some time ago: 50 mil.

3DS-FC: 4511-1768-7903 (Mii-Name: Mnementh), Nintendo-Network-ID: Mnementh, Switch: SW-7706-3819-9381 (Mnementh)

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 

10 years greatest game event!

bets: [peak year] [+], [1], [2], [3], [4]

maybe I'm too optimistic, I don't know, but if there's no 3DS successor, 80m is a given

could be 100m if 3rd parties bother to port games

Switch is replacing 3DS and Wii U

Click HERE and be happy 

Don't see a poll :p

I made a minor edit to the title 'sellinge live' to 'selling life'

but I think it's still too early to say, though 50M sounds about right
