I doubt it but I suppose nothing is impossible.

IMO there isn't going to be a "Switch 2" in a traditional sense. There will be new Switch systems with better hardware as time goes on, but the Switch brand will remain for 7-10 years and it will just be a family of hardware with broad software compatibility. It's not going to be like 5-6 years of Switch, then stop, then "Switch 2" starting at 0 again.

Switch will break that rule, just as it's broken several other hardware rules already. So in that context, 100 million is achievable. Also having a more tablet-like upgrade cycle IMO will mean that years 4-5-6-7 of the Switch cycle will not see the same decline you see in other game platforms, because the hardware will not become outdated as easily. You'll have a Switch that can run PS4/XB1 tier games in 3 years or so IMO (10nm Tegra Xavier chip).

I know for sure that Rol predicted 100 million.

He and I are the only ones.

Meanwhile the other users: 60M, 80M, 40M. No one dares to cross the 100M mark.

Someone out there said 250 million. His name rhymes with Mon Ducas.

I'll go ahead and say 160M. Best selling console of all time, baybeh!



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

Should have made this prediction months ago. At this point it just looks like jumping on the bandwagon.

I don't see anyone predicting 100 million. People have been very conservative on their estimates.

Most of the estimates have been below 60 million.  I know Rol said over 100 million.  I've been saying 80 million for a while but there are so many question marks that could impact that number such as whether Nintendo keeps another mobile platform on the market.



I'm telling ya all they have to do is release Pokemon for that motherfucker and it's OVER.

easily. Once support is all but pulled from the 3DS you'll see it reach a 100 million without issue.



Too edgy, you made this for attention, pls stop



Seems someone is trying to steal my prediction!Damn thief!



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

I think the Switch won't have enough support in Europe to cross the 100 million mark. But 80 million seems doable.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar
