I said 10-12 million on another thread, and no one seemed to agree. 20 mil are high expectations and 8 are too low. The truth lies somewhere in the middle.

10-12 million is far too low, it did 15 million last year so this year should be higher than that, it might not hit the 20m goal but its not missing it by 8-10 million.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

I don't really understand this thread. A lot of people have predicted that the Switch won't reach 20 million. Why is that "bold"?

Isn't it down YoY so far despite last year having massive supply issues/shortages?

To people saying he's just extrapolating from the 1st quarter, that's still a dumb statement to make. If he wants to say 1st quarter was bad, just say it, don't say something that makes it sound like you think the historically worst quarter will be what the system sells all fiscal year.

There is a difference between saying it will miss its shipment goals and saying it will miss it by 12 million.

Pachter has been right with MOST o his predictions for the past 10 years I've followed him. Sure, he's not right 100% of the time, but he's usually accurate, so this seems likely.

He's famous for always being wrong.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

It's down in shipments by 80,000 but up in sales by nearly 700,000.
