Oh she's taking it !!
Switch is not soon to be replaced since they kept saying it was in the middle of it's lifecycle last year. I do expect atleast 2 other good years of support for it.

At the end of 2022 : 123 millions
2023 with Zelda, less manufacture problems, Mario movie and maybe a game, don't see it doing less than 18 millions : 141 millions
2024, Probably last good year, Metroid Prime 4 etc etc maybe around 12 millions : 153 millions
They can sell another few millions if they want to phase it out and make it cheaper.

I know we didn't get a price drop yet, and i feel like some expect the Switch to never have one. Nintendo probably won't release the successor at higher than 400$ and it would be weird having OLED 50$ cheaper than the new model. So as long as they can keep the price to the actual Switch at 300-350$, there is literally no reason to release a new one. Nintendo mainly likes to have a new console when the other one isn't interesting the public or has reached the barrel as far as price point can be. So i do expect Switch to get it's cheaper moment some day. I have plenty of people in my entourage that are still on the fence of getting one just because it is too expensive for casual gamers.

When you think about it it was only less than 10M short of PS4&XB1 combined(158.7M vs 167.3M)

PS2 had some crazy legs. I'd say helped by the slow start to the PS3 and the fact it was cheap and sold really well in the smaller markets later on. 

I doubt we will ever see a console with the legs of the PS2 ever again. 

I wonder if that's more because of the shortening generation cycles, or real interest. I still think the PS4 could have lasted a couple of years more, there's really nothing really pushing for moving to PS5 in my opinion, especially with software/hardware bottlenecks caused by the pandemic.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Just imagine a bunch of Switch Lites running around for $99 for several years after 2025. It will become the defacto dedicated handheld for Nintendo and could in fact have those GB legs. Granted, we could argue until we're blue in the face whether that is indeed a "Switch" but they will play the Switch software.

Gameboy is probably as close to a sleeper hit video game system as has ever been. While it wasn’t a weak launch, the initial 5-7 year general lifespan of a system was only a moderate success, coming in below the level of the SNES… At year 6, PS4 was more than doubles Gameboy. Then  Pokémon comes out, and not too long after Gameboy rockets into the high tier and surpasses PS4.

Actually the Gameboy crawl with it's last strenght to surpass the PS4. It had peak year with almost 19M after which a massive drop to 4.7M and then short of even 300k. That's probably the biggest cliff in history.

I stand corrected. After year 6, the Gameboy just crawled another ~75 million sales. 



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

No, I mean that to pass the 117M Gameboy crawled because by that point it was with its last powers.

Sony distribution is remarkable. Nintendo today doesn´t have this level because is only a video game company

This, the aggressive price reduction and behemoth library were the stronger features of the legs of Ps2. 

The wrong price point and the fierce competition ( Wii and Xbox 360) are the major drawbacks of Sony this generation.
