Why would they drop? Because the Switch won't get the big AAA third-party games? It already doesn't get them and it sells without them. 

Only because noboby will talk about the switch then anymore

That's a terrible argument. Switch having a great 2017/2018 didnt prevent PS4 from having its 2 best years which shows that the 2 ecosystems can coexist very well without harming the others sales.

Also 3DS has sold like an additional 40 million after PS4/XBO released so there really is nothing that should cause anybody to think Switch will all of a sudden stop selling once PS5/XB4 release.



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

Why would people that want a Switch stop talking about Switch because of something that's not Switch?

Yeah that doesn't add up as it puts them 10m below what they've claimed is the total.

Famitsu‘s numbers are also just estimates. And the 0.3% can be anything from 0.25 to 0.34999999 percent, if it is rounded to one digit. 

for example: 110,000 / 0.25% are 44 million

Yet their estimates are more trust worthy than an article that said 45m last year and 46m this year.

So poor sales, everyone knows that already.

It is expected. MS will put their games on Console, PC and xCloud on day 1, so the player can choose where he wants to play. I predict in the next 10 years cloud gaming on mobile growth will be as big as mobile gaming in the past 10 years.

Wasn't having a dig, I'm glad their games go on PC, it is where I play.

Today, Microsoft still struggles to sell consoles in Japan. Of the 46.9 million Xbox Ones sold worldwide through the second quarter of 2019, just 0.3% of them have been in Japan, according to the International Data Corporation.

According to Famitsu. XBOX ONE sold 108,000 in Japan (as of September 2019.)

108,000 ÷ 0,003 = 36,000,000

Yeah, already said it

yeah. Some of the third parties and almost every indie publisher find better sales on Switch. 

I highly doubt that, third party support is still lacking overall on the Switch.  Nintendo is great when it comes to first party sales but that was the case already when they still had third party support from everyone in the NES and SNES era.

Third party support is different than some third parties finding success. It's a gamble and not rock science. The thirds don't believe a Switch great sales.
