    Just discovered the switch is about to outsell one of my favorite consoles in the Nintendo line. If This is gonna happen Nintendo should at least start making virtual console games like super Mario 64 or even finish that super Mario 128 that never came to the GameCube. The
    N64 Has sold 32.97Million units in its entire life, while the Switch has sold 32.25Million units in less than 3 years!

    Your logic is... questionable at best lol

    There were fewer gamers back then and the 64 sold well enough back then, but was still steamrolled by the PS1. So ~33mil isnt all that many units in the grand scheme of things. Mario 128 was nothing more than a tech demo and never produced, unless you want to count Mario Galaxy which in that case we already got what became of Mario 128. And Just because a console is going to outsell one of its predecessors... doesn't track. Now don't get me wrong, I would love to see N64 VC, but Nintendo is being quite coy about its older games nowadays.

    I get your point about the N64 but i am old enough to remember when a console was hailed a great success if it sold over a million units lol so 33 million is no insignificant number.

    I also think that since the switch is almost $300 when the Wii at its time was only 250, and most of the people that bought the Wii played with their families

    Somewhere, over there!
    Eh, it makes perfect sense. It's an impressive number for a system that many people doubted..
