People seem to forget that 3DS keeps selling like hot cakes and has a 200Mhz GPU... for god sake, once and for all try to understand that SOFTWARE SELLS NINTENDO MACHINES! Not hardware.


Put 3DS side by side with VITA and check the differences. Now look at Wii U and ask, where are all the main IP's? Where is Monster Hunter, where is Pokemon, where is Animal Crossing, etc... thats right... they wont make the same mistake again.

Outside of MH not being from Nintendo(and there having a version on Wii U), yeah I agree.Not only that, but the games that were there werent all the ones people wanted(though they are still excellent).

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

50-60 million lifetime I think. Just based on the content that'll be coming to it alone.

Too early. For all we know the switch will only last for a year. I am going to be optimistic. 100 million sold.

Tag:I'm not bias towards Nintendo. You just think that way (Admin note - it's "biased".  Not "bias")
(killeryoshis note - Who put that there ?)
Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

Do Not Click here or else I will call on the eye of shinning justice on you. 

Hmm.. I think it's too early to make estimations but I'll take a stab in the dark.

75 million.

Without any competition it could last 10+ years.

100M+ and good luck to whoever tries to compete with it.

Let's compare 3DS+Wii U vs. Switch. Switch has:

1. Better hardware.
2. Better software.
3. More software.
4. No competition in the handheld market.
5. Nothing worth of note that has gotten worse since a generation ago.

Conclusion: Decline.

Wait, what?!

Real conclusion: Growth. Switch is going to sell more than 100m units.

It'll be fun looking back at this thread and seeing your prediction this time considering you were absent in that famous Wii U LT thread.
