Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo Switch selling life time? (poll)

i think around 50mil. good but a step down from 3DS



Around the Network

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.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

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!

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.

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.

1. True. At an increased price, but still true.

2. So far there's nothing but Zelda. You may argue all you want about promised content in the future, but as of right now that's not really true.

3. See 2.

4. Correct, but then again...was vita really a competition to 3ds? Sure, right now there's really no competition, not even theoretically, but I still don't believe vita took a significant amount of sales from 3ds in order to make this current handheld monopoly a significantly better place for switch.

5. Nothing has gotten better either. People's focus did not suddenly shift towards handheld gaming. If anything mobile gaming is still very much growing. 

 

Conclusion: If Nintendo somehow manages to produce the same support for Switch as they did for 3ds despite the obvious increase in development cost and time then it should see similar sales as the 3ds. If it doesn't - it won't. 



30 - 130 million



Too early to really call. I think it is safe to say it will definitely outperform the Wii U, especially if Nintendo is more aggressive with its price. Personally, I'm guessing 50M-55M.



100 - 240 MILLION. J O Y C O N B O Y Z.
