and another one who blogs „nintendo“ and „must“ in the same sentence. they did not care when they were losing and they for sure will not care now that they tricked people into giving them money again. nintendo does not care. they are rather commiting harakiri before listening and learning, i don‘t like their hostile mentality at all.

Here are three things Nintendo should do to sell 20 million switches in 2018. 1) release a free online network with invite system, cross game chat where a person could use any Bluetooth or usb Mic 2) release a lot more AAA games and third party games. 3) implement some sort of trophy system or achievement system where you get Nintendo stars, points or coins for playing the games, lower there game cost to 40 dollars and lower the price for all accessories.nes fanatics would like Nintendo to be very successful for doing a lot less than there competition.

The Nintendo switch doesn't deserve to sell more than Xbox one because even though the Xbox lacks exclusive titles the switches offering is so small and barely get third party games. The xbox gets majority of the third party games and it's value is a lot more than a switch. Switch is portable but what's the point of being portable if it barely has anything compelling for core gamers. After owning a switch for a while I feel like it's just a waste of money. Imo Zelda is the best game on it but after that there isn't much and what I see on the horizon isn't much other than metroid 4, and bayonetta 3.

In 9 months Switch has delivered better quality and higher quantities of top notch games than Xbox has in 4 years! Metroid 4, smash Bros Switch, pikmin 4, Bayonetta 3, Pokemon late 2018 maybe slip to 2019 plus many more they’ll have up their sleeve, it’s interesting Switch should have a free online tho yet Xbox are alright to charge you £40 a year for generally rubbish free games and just to be able to play online... hypocrite much?

You believe switch has better quality games released in the last 9 months than xbox one has in 4 years? Id like you to tell me those games please or at least 10 high quality games without any inferior ports of multiplatform games. The switch has a handful of high quality games and some I'm not into but I can admit are quality titles. Switch has Zelda botw, Mario odd. , splatoon 2, Mario kart, and xenoblade 2 with all its faults. Everything else on the switch are uninteresting or low quality ports. The xbox has had all the hundreds of multiplatform games over the past 4 years with higher quality over the switch. The switch has a handful of multiplatform games.

All the consoles should have free online but when you're talking about the switch you know the online will not even be 1/8 the quality of Xbl or psn on the ps3 so switch' s online should be free. The way to communicate on switch now is so silly where you have to use a mobile phone with app and it's convoluted Mic option. The only thing the switch has thats a plus is being portable. You mentioned games coming to the switch in about a year or so but where are the loads of games now youre eluding to or the games coming soon. What are the quality games you can play now? Will switch have red dead 2 or farcry 5 and other AAA multiplatform games coming soon?

@RosweeSon Tbf, that's not a very high bar. Nintendo is doing great, but they're not above criticism like everyone here seems to think.

guywazeldatatt290d ago

LOL they don't "deserve" to sell more than the xbox one? Sales have nothing to do with deserving, the market chooses, and the market will choose the Nintendo Switch and it will surpass the XBO by at the latest end of next year. Talk about delusional..

Yeah, this is literally all they have to do. If they can keep up the same momentum they had this year by releasing solid games throughout the entire year then they should hit 20 million next fiscal year no problem.

Other than that, currently Pokemon is targeting "2018 or later" and as long as it releases before the end of March 2019 that pretty much guarantees 20 million sold next fiscal year.

Without all big 3rd party games it wont happend

joab777291d ago

Uh...Keep releasing games like this yr. Their hardware sales are driven by software. And I fear there won't be another yr like this one for a long time. How often does a Zelda and Mario games release in the same year, especially redefining versions of each. Almost never!

The 10th Rider291d ago

They've got Yoshi, Kirby, Project Octopath, Metroid Prime 4, Shin Megami Tensei V, Fire Emblem, No More Heroes, Bayonetta 3, Pikmin 4, and Pokemon . . . And that's just the titles we know about.

Within the next two or three years I'm sure we'll see Animal Crossing, Smash Bros, Mario Party, 2D Mario, Retro Studios next game, a new Pokemon game (but not generation) and Next Level's new game.

By the end of those 3 years we should be close to another Zelda, 3D Mario, Mario Kart, and another Pokemon gen.

I doubt we'll see another year with the same critical success as this one unless they give us 3D Mario and a new Zelda in the same year again, but we could easily see titles with larger commercial appeal. Any combination of 2D Mario, Animal Crossing, and Pokemon would make for a bigger commercial year than 3D Mario and Zelda.

I agree that they have some great titles coming, and hopefully it satiates those who lobe mobile gaming. It will crush it in Japan. I just hope they are able to reach a greater audience with these titles.
