    And here I am, a year after buying one, yet to even play it. Hacked it. Put stickers on it. It's sat there since then.

    It’s a handheld system, Nintendo handheld systems usually always sell. If switch wasn’t a handheld system, I don’t think the sales would have got this far.

    Makes me wonder how salty those owners would be if they made a Switch pro

    Awesome! That's really very strong hardware sales! Congrats!

    I skipped Switch and wait for Switch Pro or Switch 2 instead. ;)

    why would we be salty? lol everyone wants a switch pro since like the first year lol.

    were people salty about the dsi?new 3ds?ps4 pro?xbox one x?

    dont think anyone ever got salty over an upgraded model that isnt required, i would buy a pro one really easily.

    Great that they were able to recover extremely well after the wiiu flopped so hard. I could see this thing reach 90 to 100 m by the end of its lifetime.

    Best buy just announced there will be no series s/x and ps5 physically in stores, you can only buy them online.
    maybe more sales for switch this holiday season, let's see.

    The Nintendo Switch is cheap compared to other videogame consoles so of course the lockdown has helped. I wonder how many of those sales are of the Mini model?

    Is it really legitimate to combine Switch and Switch Lite sales together? The Lite is no longer a hybrid or Tv console and $100 cheaper. Could we combine PS2 and PSP sales?

    The Lite might have less features, but it's still a switch. By that logic we shouldn't count the 2DS and 3DS sales together because the 2DS is cheaper and doesn't have 3D.

    even though GTA V is on older consoles and I do think it could run the last gen version without too many issues, you guys are missing the point.
    If they ported the last gen version for the Switch they couldnt inject the things from GTA Online because the last gen versions are stuck on an older version due to performance restraints and I dont think Rockstar from today wants to sell a offline GTA V, that they cant take advantage of Shark Cards.

    they dont need to make gta online on switch at all, heck if they ported gat 4 there would be no complaints either, they would sell well all the same but yeah rockstar is just milking gtaV for all its life, and they are gonna milk it on ps5/xbsx too so i see no reason why they wont want to milk it on the switch, its an odd choice imo, but yeah nothing to do.

    They are different versions of the same consple. Is not like Sony combining the PSP and Vita game sales together.

    We certainly need some competition, that way Nintendo most likely won't get away as easily with their drifting joycons for example. And prices would have to be more competitive. They can really just do what they want currently.

    I hope sony won't actually stop with handhelds, their designs were pretty dope so far.

    Because before they were called Rockstar North they were called DMA Design Limited and Nintendo fucked them over almost making them bankrupt. Because of this they will never release any of their big franchise (GTA/Red Dead) on a Nintendo home console. Only the odd small release like China Town Wars etc.

    This was back in 1995-1998 or so, but they still hold that grudge as many of the developers still work there today

    DMA (Rockstar North) would have been a 2nd party developer only releasing on Nintendo (and maybe pc) if Nintendo didn't fuck them over. You can read into it in more detail here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocks..._Take-Two_acquisition_.281994.E2.80.932001.29
