I can't see Nintendo waiting later than 2023 to replace the Switch.

Sales will be well passed their peak by then and it will be time to move on.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

It's been known for a while now but still disappointing that PS4 won't crack 10 million in sales. Competition is good for all gamers. Its especially what made Nintendo great this gen.
Switch on the other hand is killing it and can challenge for 30 million sales.

Question for everybody before I make a new thread, in your own opinion when do you think a successor will come out? Say year and either holiday or spring.

I’m still shocked most think 2022 and 2023

I think it is going to take some time.
Switch doesnt have to rush to finish its cicle, it is well positioned in its own niche. At same time, we have to follow the prices of components like SSD, new mobile chips, even technologies like foldable screen on phones, DLSS. Switch can wait until we have low prices on these technologies. So, if i had to bet, I would say fall 2014 or spring 2025.

I told people it would fail, again.

I remember saying Animal Crossing on Switch will be hard to beat New Leaf before New Horizon was announced. The fact this is happening in less than 4-5 months of its release is crazy.

They should have just made TW101 and TMS#FE free for NSO users or dont bother spending time to put it on Switch. Would have liked to see the same effort used on a different game ported on the Switch.
