That's a tough one. Around 10 million?

They're supposed to be producing 18 million in first year to the end of March 2018, so I'm going to predict around 13 million sales, with 5 million left as stock.

13-14 milliom

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

I'd rather wait until E3 so I can see the Switch's full first year line-up, but at the end of day I think there is one game that will make the biggest difference in the Switch's first year sales.

14 million+ with Pokémon

Around 10 million without

Around the Network

Difficult to say, there is a lot of games coming out especially near the end of 2017. I say 13 million.

Intel Core i7 8700K | 32 GB DDR 4 PC 3200 | ROG STRIX Z370-F Gaming | RTX 3090 FE| Asus PG27UQ gaming on 3840 x 2160 @120 Hz GSYNC HDR| HTC Vive Pro :3 (Vive Pro 2 pre-ordered!!!)

Are those first year stats for other consoles the first 12 months for each?

9 Million by end of 2017.

10.5m by March 2018.

Somewhere between the DS and the PS4 - I'll go 12, I guess.
