The sales are amazing. Good to see games, both first party and third, selling so great on the legendary Nintendo Switch.

The Switch has only been out for a little more than 5 months, it's a bit early to call it "legendary". Let's see how well it sells now that the hype and artificial shortages are over. Right now the library is very weak unless you're a diehard Nintendo fan, a group that continues to shrink every year.

Uh the library is very strong. Don't know where you got it is weak. An opinion and not a very good one. It is gonna be a legendary system. It is gonna change video games weather or not fan boys like it.

It's weak library has way higher rated exclusives my friend

Way higher rated exclusives Erik? I don't think that's really the case.
Granted, Zelda was great, but splatoon 2, arms, and that Mario kart i played 5 years ago don't have the same universal acclaim. Unless you're just comparing to Xbox exclusives, then yeah they shit all over those games.
I'm sure Mario Odyssey will be crazy good though, if the previews are anything to go by. I will own that game day 1.

Oh gosh, another fake shortage believer who is ignorantly claiming the library is small but has likely not been paying attention to all the games that have come out on the platform now and all of the third party games that are about to come before Christmas.
