Forums - Sales Discussion - My Nintendo Switch prediction (made in January) is still looking strong

Back in January, what was your opinion about this prediction?

Absolutely crazy 8 25.00%
 
Not impossible, but absolutely bold. 7 21.88%
 
probabily about right, but a bit too much 2 6.25%
 
very close to what i predicted 9 28.13%
 
i predicted even more tha... 1 3.13%
 
You was / still are crazy... 5 15.63%
 
Total:32

I know that I predicted the Switch would fail and sell under 3 million units in its first year because no one should want one except the fanboys. Nintendo should have stuck with the AMD Semi Custom design win. But then I gave it some more thought, and if you think about it, these sales are stupidly obvious and predictable given market growth thanks to PS4. Then when you consider that, these sales are actually quite disappointing. Sales should be much much higher, it didn’t even manage to beat the PS4, which is highly disappointing.

Honestly, this is not good news for Nintendo at all, and worse news for the fans for not getting the AMD Semi Custom design win console that they were obviously planning before given all the evidence.

Februfools! No one is THAT stupid to actually think like that :)

Predictions for 2018? Nice. I go with:-

      Q1          3.2
      Q2          4.4 (LABO!)
      Q3          4.4 (Animal Crossing?)
      Q4          9.2 (Big holiday title but not pokemon)
TOTAL:- 21.2M

What is your guess for big holiday title if not Animal Crossing or Pokemon?

Well i figured we would get Pokemon OR metroid for holidays 2018. So, if Metroid, it may not be enough, so in tandem with 2D Mario, or Mario Party, Or even a "Wii" style series, Probably party again.



DON'T WIN ME CHIBI BUDDY DON'T WIN ME.

ANIMAL CROSSING NEW LEAF FRIEND CODE:- 5129 1175 1029. MESSAGE ME.
ANDY MURRAY:- GRAND SLAM WINNER!

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

Metroid or Pokemon is the difference between a game that will sell closer to 2 million or closer to 20 million. And they’re also different audiences. They could release them both alongside each other.
