How many million sellers will the Switch have after a year?

1-2. 17 3.44%
3-4. 63 12.75%
5-6. 140 28.34%
7-8. 120 24.29%
9-10. 66 13.36%
More than 10 million sellers. 88 17.81%

The Switch is flying off the shelves, and its games are also selling wonderfully. BotW already reached the million, and MK8Deluxe is probably reaching it son, while smaller titles like 1-2 Switch and Bomberman R have very healthy numbers as well.  But how well are they selling? How many million sellers will the Switch have once march of 2018 arrives?

If I had to make a guess, BotW, MK8D, 1-2 Switch, Minecraft, Arms and Mario Odyssey* will reach the million, so at least 6 million sellers, plus the ones unnannounced yet.

By the way, does anybody know the million sellers year 1 for the WiiU, 3DS, PS4 and XBOne? Just to make a comparaison.

*Edit. I can't believe I forgot Splatoon 2. That might do a million in Japan alone, if lucky.

I'm gona say over 10, the lineup is packed with quality titles: Zelda is already over 1M, 1-2 Switch will follow soon, MK8 will easily do 1M+ FW so there's three in the first two months of its lifecycle, Splatoon 2 and Mario Odyssey will be milion sellers FW no brainer while Xeno2, ARMS and FEW could all sell over 1M by the time of March 2018 considering they all fill gaps for genres currently unavailable on Switch, plus they will all likely get far more advertisement than their predecessors/titles on Wii U. this means that only with these first party titles we would have 8 milion sellers, I have a hard time not seeing at least two other milion sellers on the system...

1, 2 Switch
Mario Kart
Mario Odissey

Maybe about four: Breath of The Wild, Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Odyssey. Though ARMS is looking promising.

Well we have Zelda, mario, mario kart, and splatoon, so at least 4 already. I also feel 1-2 Switch, Minecraft, Arms, and MAYBE Xeno 2 will reach 1M, so 7-8 is my guess

I can live with five.

Minecraft will be big I feel.

From what we've seen so far, at least 4. Zelda, Mario, Spla2n, and MK8. Those seem like safe bets.
