Given that Pachter, whether hes positive or negative, tends to predict the opposite of what ends up happening...cant say this really sways me much either way here. XD
Switch could certainly miss its forecast. Its first quarter was basically the same as last year. But predicting 8 million seems a tad...overblown.
Nintendo has always made the bulk of its sales during the holiday season. Given that Nintendo didnt lower their expectations after Labo floundered, I imagine theyve always thought theyd make the bulk of their sales with Pokemon and Smash.
