    Nintendo expects to have shipped 17.76 million Switch units by March 3rd 2018, on the console-handheld-hybrid's 1st birthday.

    Currently, the global Switch hardware sales sit at 14.86 million units, with software sales at 52.57 million units.

    Very impressive for such a short time on the market, but can Nintendo really shift another 3 million units in just 2 months?

    Well, that is a little above their original 10 million sales estimate for the fiscal year.

    basically people who bought a console with quantities of AAA games less than ur hand fingers and about half of them are pillaged titles from diseased WIIU...

    Nintendo players are weird...

    I have 5 AAA games and only one of them is from the WiiU (Zelda), the other 15 games, yeah, I have Mario Kart 8 from the WiiU. I don't understand what you're talking about...

    I meant people bought a console knowing that there aren't much EXCLUSIVE games to play with.

    Not worth creating a new thread for this question.

    What games are on the switch first and then later on other systems?

    Finding that out myself.
    I'm sure the Switch would sell a shit ton of units, but I'm also pretty sure that it won't surpass the PS2.

    Impressive number. And to think I predicted less than 10 million sales in its lifetime. :shy:

    That's according to the logic that people buy consoles based on the exclusives. That logic works when the exclusives are the main differentiating factor. However, I think that a large chunk of people bought a switch because it's both a handheld and a console.

    ...and there's of course the chunk that buy a console for the nintendo exclusives. An argument like "there aren't much exclusive games" only matters if you actually want to PLAY those exclusives. ;)

    Nintendo handhelds have always been a hit in Japan. The Switch is no difference.

    Some can say that the Switch is a hybrid, but I consider it a full-handheld with enhancements for home gaming.

    So few people bought the Wii U that the ports might as well be exclusive.
    Besides, between Mario, Zelda, Xenoblade and Splatoon, and everything that's on the eShop worth buying, there's enough there to keep you busy for months, it's not like people are really hurting for more games right now.

    A good majority bought the PS2 because it was a cheap DVD player. It had great games, yes. The biggest selling point was the DVD capabilities though.

    Don't forget "Don't knock twice" for a horror game, it was boring a shit.

    Wow stupid post. Alot of people who bought the switch skipped on the wiiu. Also the switch has a lot more exclusive AAA games that I'd rather play right now than on my PS4 or Xbox one.

    Lol
    The pure fact that the switch has outsold the wiiu proves that a lot of people who now have a switch, didn't have a wiiu

    I thought that would have been obvious to understand. But it's fine..people like you need things spelled out and simplified

    well, sales kinda prove it, the switch has already outsold the wii u's entire life time sales already in under a year and so far the switch re releases have been outselling there wii u counterparts

    I thought that was obvious enough for anyone to figure out. Even a 6 year old.
