Why do you think that? Just curious.

I'm assuming you're talking about U.S., right?

I hope so.



I mean X1 is gonna be at like 25-30 mil or so in the US when it's done right?

That's not going to be a breeze for the Switch I think. Though I do think it will eventually pass it down the line.

as to why i think this. I think because Nintendo just doesn't have the third party support to keep it selling as long as xbox.

In this case, I actually agree with quickrick. While the Switch will blow by Xbox with relative ease WW, in the US, Switch passing the Xbox One is not guaranteed by any stretch of the imagination. Xbox One has sold over 21 million units in the US alone. Not that far behind PS, which is about 24 million sold.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

That's probably going to be the case. Worldwide will be pretty interesting though. US will probably belong to Xbox, but Switch probably won't lag too far behind in the end. The Switch is dominating the market and has a somewhat respectable presence in Europe while the Xbox has done little but fart in Japan and have a little better showing than the Switch in Europe, though probably not drastic. I don't know since I don't have numbers on European sales for Xbone and Switch.



I have to admit I thought Quickrick was talking about Worlwide. My bad. And so, the cycle I mentioned in my last reply will continue onward!

I guess it's not that crazy of a prediction. The problem I have with it is that so far the Xbox is only in the lead by 300k, which is not a lot considering that the Switch has had a pretty horrid 1st party selection until the last two months of the year (popularity-wise). I ... guess I could see it happening. I mean, it's reasonable. I just don't think it will.



Alright, today i need to update this thread. Give me a few hours, i'm at school right now.

Well 3rd part games are not main thing that selling Switch on first place.
