Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Be Honest: Why Do You Think Switch is a Sales Success Right Now?

Right... so... who italicised the thread this time?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Because it's a cool device with some good games that you can play on your tv or in a portable manner with no hassle.

Breath of the Wild in particular is excellent game and aside from WiiU emulation, the Switch is currently the best way to play that game.

Because it's fantastic? :o What more reason do you need?



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Mr. Miyamoto sacrificed the world's last two-headed Amur Leopard on the altar of Mercury using the jewelled dagger of prosperity.

Nintendo staff, dressed in their finest designer suits, then bathed in the blood, and drinking as much as they were able.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

The only reason Switch is even relevant right now is because of the "Nintendo" name attached to it. It this were a MS system, it would not even see half of the sales its getting.

Zelda and other Ninty exclusives, decent third party support and some HW features that users consider useful and desirable enough to justify the price.
Plus being a very well-thought-out project after a disaster on home consoles and a portable below expectations, basically it's what both Ninty fans and simple gamers that aren't Ninty haters expected from Ninty.
I'm not a Ninty fan, and I still find NS expensive for my tastes and my wallet, but I can tell an excellent product when I see it.

"Why Do You Think Switch is a Sales Success Right Now?"

For 1 simple reason: Zelda BOTW, which has been totally overestimated, as always. When this game won't sell anymore, the switch will become a bigger flop than the wiiu. Maybe even when their online will become payable.

You know, Wii U also had "Nintendo" name attached to it.



Besides some aspects like voice chat, Nintendo seems to be hitting a stride they havent in many years. With 3rd party support and games looking and running well for a handheld system.

Its appealing to the millions who bought a 3ds, it is also appealing to those who want a console experience. Now if they can get some Virtual console stuff on the store it will be even better.

Its a great time to be a gamer with so many options. I am really enjoying everything the industry has to offer on all fronts, and I am excited for what will be coming out in the future, its been a really long time since that has happened for me.



 

Because it's selling better than most consoles that launched (alligned). But I still don't see it catch up or overtake the PS4.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar
