80million? As of march 31 the 3ds was at 66 million. As of March 31 the PS4 was at 60 million. Stop making stuff up.

Calm down. Ok 60 mil. As a publisher, would you spend money developing big games for the PS4 or Switch? That's the point I'm getting at.

Agree.  Zelda is selling Switches cause of the low WiiU install base. This will not be a home console killer, or compete well with PS/Xbox.  My take, the Switch will be a 3DS replacement, and maybe they'll eventually sell it without the dock for a lower price.  The original 3DS came out in 2011, and the portable console market for AAA titles (3DS/Vita), is hungry for a new system.

Agree. Only when it hits the magic price of $199 (disposable income price for the masses) by either a hardware revision or ditching the dock will it attract casuals to use it as a portable system in place of 3DS. But, it is Nintendo we are talking about and hardware price drops are usually not in their books, regardless if they can or can not.

I only wish. Unfortunately, its sales trajectory is improbably high. Nintendo is only being encouraged to continue its stupid bullshit.


It's just the early adopters and better marketing this time vs Wii U. Once the dust settles, ppl will wake up and find that it, as a hybrid system doesn't do well on either the portable or home console sides. The biggest problem will again be 3rd party support further down the line. The Switch is not on the level of PS4/X1/PC so ports to it would significantly impact visuals and performance, so they would rather skip the Switch on these titles. Most 3rd paty publishers will not invest money to make big games specifically for the Switch. Why would they blow all that money for the 5 million Switch users where the same dollars spent would buy them potentially 80 million users on PS4 for example. Right now, all you see from 3rd paties are dinky games, games from decades ago, and ports of games that can be produced on last gen hardware. This trend will only continue til its death.
