Could The Switch Be One Of Nintendo’s Greatest Successes?

I’ve been talking about the Switch a lot recently, and I’m not the only one. If you follow even a single gaming news outlet, you’ll likely be inundated with news about Nintendo’s fledgeling console. Having already outsold its predecessor, the Wii U, within its first year of life, it’s a success story that will no doubt have the big shots at Nintendo breathing a sigh of relief. But how will the console fare in the long run? Its current trajectory gives us a few clues.

especially if its 1 of them....

Like me saying, could n64 be one of nintendos good consoles

Clearly it's going to be successful yes, but in judging its success in comparison to other Nintendo consoles, it's important to factor in the fact that they relinquished their handheld line to make it. So technically you have to compare its sales to that of the Wii and DS combined, or the Gamecube/GBA combined.

@Nebaku - "important to factor in the fact that they relinquished their handheld line to make it. So technically you have to compare its sales to that of the Wii and DS combined, or the Gamecube/GBA combined."

THANK YOU! Seriously, why are folks not looking at it from that perspective?

They are still supporting the 3DS, so I don’t know where you get the notion of them “relinquished their handheld line” from.

Oh boy, I always wondered if there were people out there gullible enough to believe them calling what they're doing as "support" and now I know.

It's not a hyperbole when it is already a success. It has already surpassed Wii U's lifetime sales, it's very likely it will surpass N64 and NGC lifetime sales as well, as the Switch is still selling well to this day. A new super smash bros game will guarantee a huge boost, and a new mainline Pokémon game title will better the sales given the fact that mainline Pokémon title tend to sell +10M unites.

Yeah, but it’s still too early to tell. It’s going to take another year or two to tell.
