Nah.

It depends on what the Switch gets from handheld developers but I doubt it reaches 100 Million.

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

I had, back in November XD

TY! I knew somebody has made a prediction thread like that before. Payback time from "Wii U will sell under 40M" thread? Ha, that will be funny!

No, I made that because I really believe it.Now, if it will turn out to be true or not, remains to be seen, but its at least on track!

I also believe that too. I am saying that will be funny that turns out that we are right and all people that mock you or predicted numbers way lower will look dumb when this thing bump hard in the future. The timing was perfect for the thread's creation.

I think 80 million at best.



They will need to make a Switch mini pro or something becuz no one doesnt want to play on a 720p handheld in 2023

That was a shot in the dark, considering how many important pieces of the puzzle were still missing back then.

1. First party lineup
2. Third party games
3. Price
4. Hardware features (things like motion control and SL/SR buttons weren't shown in the teaser)
5. Battery life

There was certainly reason to have a positive outlook for Nintendo based on their recent moves, but ultimately everything would depend on the Switch being a good product in and of itself. The five factors listed above being unknowns at the time meant that it was still up in the air how the console would fare. Your thread is one of the few occasions that I bothered to comment on sales prospects for Switch in the timeframe between Switch teaser and January presentation, because it was lots of speculation while good information wasn't far away anymore.

However, the Switch teaser at least showed how the console looks, so there is some substance. I'll add a link to your thread to my ongoing megathread. Anfebious will get an add as well.



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

Oh, then I agree fully!
