Yeah the Switch succeeding an 8th gen platform, NPD also call it a home console when the industry debates over that, it's a Hybrid.

You're right.  I'll start correcting everyone I work with.  Now can we get back to 9th gen Switch outselling 6th gen Xbox?

Fallacies do nothing for you.

Look, we gotta put a cap on when celebrate _____ out selling _____.

The only real Nintendo console that didn't outsell the Xbox was the Wii U, it was a disaster. Kudos to the Switch, it will likely sell a 100 million units or whatever.

Well I mean it is a sales website, so this is the only place celebrating stuff like this makes sense.

 

Do I give two craps?  No...not really.  I will celebrate when it passes 80 mil, then again if it passes 100 mil.  To me, those are the milestones that would matter...IMHO.

I hear ya, but Xbox didnt exactly sell great.

To contrary, its news when a console by a major company fails to do that.

We just had recent threads for PS4 outselling GBA, 360 & PS3, it's pretty common to point out when consoles outsell other consoles on a video game sales website.

 

Also I think you're missing the point of the accomplishment, it's not impressive to outsell Xbox in general, it is however impressive to outsell it in 1 year and 9 months.



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

According to Nintendo plans, Switch with ship numbers should pass N64 numbers at end of this month.



Well, It is a very low milestone and considering the good release it was obvious it would cross.

Successful consoles always outsell the the OG Xbox in a much short period the OG Xbox was produced. Thats sorta the point.

Switch is doing great, sales are staying strong, I dont think were that far from Switch out performed Genesis, N64, SNES, NES, GBA, GB, PS1, 360, PS3, Jaguar, etc. Hence, there is a lot of fucking threads to cover on this same topic. Passing the Xbox, a modest selling console with huge software support, low on Switch's potential success.

One step at a time. Keep it going till they can work out what to do next gen to ensure that doesn't fail



 

 

Almost time to celebrate the next milestone. Were going to be celebrating quite a few them.

For a sales site there seems to be a fair few rude people only here debating why we talking numbers lol

Isn't it nice to keep track of when a console beats another?

I know I’d certainly agree with that suggestion =)

But I feel similarly about the Wii U. They weren’t major Nintendo consoles, more like stopgaps.

Stopgaps?  Between what and what?

Between Nintendo's significant consoles. The Gamecube and the Wii U have their cult-like fanbases who think these consoles are like the Messiah, but they weren't major Nintendo consoles; it doesn't seem Nintendo ever saw them as such, either. While N64, Wii, and Switch marketing were all prominent, all over the place, the Gamecube and Wii U were rather mute; in addition, Nintendo didn't release any major flagship titles/killer apps for Gamecube or Wii U.

Most importantly, Gamecube and Wii U never had a major interface upgrade - they were more or less, "hmmm, we need to have some kind of upgraded hardware to fit the timeslot, but we don't yet have our next big thing concept ready" - which is really the main reason why they are more like stopgaps.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
