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.

Congrats. The 3ds and ds did it a good bit faster but still impressive non the less.

Well seeing how Nintendo holds the record in Japan, and the only thing worth comparing to that record is another Nintendo console, it really does not matter which one did it a bit faster.

Well it does because generally on a VG sales website we compare things. It shows in japan switch is selling good but way off the DS and a good chunk behind the 3ds. Things will change for good or bad but as of now that's how it stands.

I know, the Switch will either be the best selling gaming device or the 3rd best selling gaming device in Japan.  They have set the bar high for themselves to the point where only they can seem to reach it, so it will be interesting to see if it can pass the other two.  With a big Pokemon release coming this year, it is possible but only time will tell.  It will be tough!

I suspect sales will be huge over the next 18 months or so but it's whether or not it can keep selling big into year 5,6 and 7 if it breaks those records.

Something tells me Switch will sell 30+ million lifetime since it sold 7 million barely 2 years and with no pokemon or animal crossing



I game on all consoles and PC

There are 126 million people in Japan. So these are good numbers.



Switch I think will hit 11 million in the final week or two of 2019.
FF games, DQXI (i assume), Pokemon, Animal Crossing, NSMBU, Smash and Let's Go continuing to push consoles. 2018 was a very weak year for Switch software pushing hardware until November. 2019 should be much stronger, I don't think there is any way Switch sells less than 4 million in Japan in 2019. Oh and of course new Switch hardware version plus price drop on current hardware...yeah I could easily see 4.5+ million in 2019.



That 700k PS4 lead wont last long now....

Im expecting atleast 20m+ Switch in japan lifetime sales (too early to say Switch might do 30m+ in japan)
While with PS4 I dont expect more than 12m or so.
