Did you provided any source like a proof that X360 sold more than Wii? No you didnt, but if you did from start I could admit I am wrong. One user provided tweet from Mat from NPD that he confirmed that X360 sold more than Wii, and for me thats enough that I admit I am wrong. And no, I didnt saw all the threads X360 passing Wii in US or maybe I saw them and forget them. But I remember threads that PS3/360 will sell more than Wii world wide, and those were wrong.

Big difference in threads and reports of X360 HAVING PASSED Wii and PS360 EXPECTED TO PASS Wii.

Bragging? :D  Don't be silly, Its not point about braging, but when you claim something at least gave numbers and sources that supports your claims, Kerotan didnt do neither of those things.

Nope you didn't said you were wrong, you bragged that at least you brought sources (missing the fact that I gave VGC first and foremost as where the numbers were, and is the basis of most discussions on numbers here unless proven wrong, and that is usually for more recent ones) even if your source was America NPD (which isn't official numbers by the way) and then you inferred similar distribution on the region for different systems.

Saying that Americans numbers are not relevant to US numbers is wrong (because we know that around 90% of those numbers goes for US alone), same like it dont make any sense to arguing who sold more without providing any numbers for comparison or sources like you are doing.

But again, nothing new from you, like always you do similar things when comes to Nintendo, making claims without any arguments or source and very offten being wrong like you already done in this thread.

90% of the sales in Americas going to USA isn't necessarily right, and as show to you on basing on those numbers were in fact wrong, even more when the difference is small and any 1% may change the outcome. PS/Nintendo/MS can be like 85 88 90 of their sales in USA looking at America, and on 10M difference sales not mater, but on 1M changing all.

Yeah its big difference, expecting something to be done is not equal like something is done, that cant be taken like fact in any case.

Moment one user said that Mat from NPD via twitter said that X360 sold more than Wii, it was obvious that I was wrong, and I saw that tweet because I asked for link of that tweet and said tnx to user who provided that link, but that seems its wasnt enough for some people (lol) so I very clearly said I was wrong in last few posts. No I didnt bragged, but I did provide official numbers at least for Americas (yes they are official because they are taken from Nintendo quarter reports from each region during Wii life span) compared to Kerotan that didnt provide nothing but was arguing that X360 sold more without any numbers, and I was trying to explain him that you cant realy arguing without providing any source or fact that will backup your claims, you at least gave some numbers even they are not official. VGC numbers are far from reliable espacily because MS dont provide official sales numbers, VGC itself saying they numbers are their estimates, their numbers cant be taken like fact in any case.

I said around 90% and that right when comes to Nintendo, if you want accurate numbers from sales, well best we can have is to ask Matt to provide us sales numbers for Wii and X360 in US alone, but again Nintendo internal numbers can easily have differences compared to NPD reports.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Do some of you guys live in a salt mine?

Congrats Switch.

***THREAD WARNING***

 

Too many reports coming out of this thread. Keep things on topic, stop the derailing and the belittling of the successes achieved here.

In the meantime we are reviewing the reports, there will be moderations, that much is certain.



I'm just gonna wait for the day that the Switch passes the Wii. That would be a nice celebration.

Launch aligned Switch already passed Wii, LT Wii is at 12.75m in Japan, Switch should passed Wii LT numbers sometime next year. Only platforms in Japan that sold better than Switch in same time period are DS and 3DS, while both had price cut and revision in same time period of its life while Switch still didnt had neither, and both are among top 3 best selling platforms ever in Japan.  

In any case, very impresive results for Switch and 2019. should be much stonger than 2018.

Really impressive, NS is surely the current big gaming thing in Japan and it's not a fad, it will remain this way for at least the next two years. Ninty found the way to save the home console, and probably the whole console gaming, in Japan, and the portable in the rest of the world.
