Agreed,The Switch will do better than 3DS and Wii U sales + it will last longer than the wii U.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

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.

Oh yeah, it definely were.I even acknoledged that in the first paragraph.However, that first teaser was a telling sign on how they would treat the Switch overall.Nobody could be sure about the specifics, such as the points you just wrote, but given how good Nintendo had been in those last few months leadind up to the end of the year(in relations to pretty much everything outside the Wii U) and how well excecuted that trailer was(and also assuming that would be the tone going foward), I felt confident in making that thread.

And what is this megathread of yours?Is it to accompany every prediction positive or negative to have a reckoning in the future?



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

I doubt it will sell that much, but I believe it will sell well in its own right.

Originally I made it because the stupidity and ignorance for sales numbers of the VGC community bothered me (VGC consensus put lifetime sales for Switch at 30-35m), but soon after the Switch launch I noticed that history is going to get revised, so I decided to keep a record of how things really were. The new goal is maintenance of truth on top of the original slap in the face.



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

65% yes

A sensible prediction.

I'll make a bet you are wrong...



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

I stand by my prediction. If I am wrong, so be it. This prediction the Switch will sell 100 million sales is rediculous.
