There it is!  It's the Mario Kart killer.



The Switch is launching a Golden Experience every single freaking week of the year thus far ! Who would have thought this summer season could be so interesting for once :D



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

Switch really has hit that truly insane tier that only like 3 other systems have ever reached, where they break records even without price drops, new models, or big releases, just cos general demand is through the stratosphere.



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

Next week is gonna explode. It's gonna be insane numbers

The only other systems that were capable of weekly sales of this magnitude were the Wii and DS.

Nintendo is literally just competing with themselves!

Nintendo is a force to be reckoned with when they remember who they are and not release shit consoles. 



The scary part is, with presumably more supply, presumably new revisions, and games like Monster Hunter Rise and possibly BOTW2, could 2021 actually be even higher for Switch?

If it is. We'll need to start having serious discussions about the Switch becoming the best selling video game system of all time.

One part of that question is how high 2020 will end up being. The lower it is, the easier it will be to beat, obviously.

But in any case, it's assured that Switch sales will remain strong because the software pipeline is healthy. If 2021 finishes at "only" 22-25m, that will be good enough. 2020 had COVID lockdowns which is something outside of Nintendo's control that boosted Switch sales. That's what really makes it challenging for 2021 to top 2020, because it's very probable that in 2021 Switch will have to sell entirely on its merits.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
