Tears of the Kingdom, 3D World + Bowser's Fury, Switch Sports, Splatoon 3, and Mario Party Superstars should all join the 10 million plus club by the end of their run.
Pokemon Scarlet/Violet's already there too.

Currently, there's not exactly an abundance of announced games still to come for the Switch, but if past patterns are any indication, there are likely still major releases for next year we don't know about yet. A new Donkey Kong or a 2D Mario for instance could be another 10 million plus seller.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

NSW 14
NDS 10
Wii 09
3DS 07
GB 06
NES 03
GBA 02
N64 01

So of Nintendo's  10 Million sellers, the Switch Has the most and is not even done yet.

MK8 being second with the sales on NS alone is insane consider it has another 8m sales on another platform.

VG's latest numbers has the NS leapfrog the PS4 and become the fourth best selling platform in history.

Odds MK8 + MK8D outsell Wii Sports?

And I'm just highlighting that the pessimism was there and like you said that 80 million had to go somewhere but at that time we had seen it shrink from around 220million to that 80 million figure so whether or not the Switch would stabilise that trend was up in the air.

80m would be an significant increase following Wii U which is the point when you add 3DS and Vita sales you have 90m so 3DS numbers alone was always the reasonable minimum especially as a hybrid device would benefit from games like mainline Pokemon which home consoles never got. The only way for such a decline would be for the portable market to literally crash as it was clear at that point Mobile was never replacing traditional and when you have a monopoly on a market the market itself has to crash as the monopoly is the stability.

I get what your saying, but again no one was saying that the market was going to crash, but like I have repeatedly said we were replying to trunks and referencing the attitude of the times and the rest was about why it was one of pessimism not it's validity,  now unless you disagree with the fact that there was a lot of pessimism at that time then we a have nothing to argue about and lets call it a day cheers.👌
