Wow it actually beat Wii in the same timeframe, never saw that coming

Ultimately Switch will be the more successful console since its sales won’t nosedive in three years and it better caters to core audiences

It should. The Wii was supply constrained for nearly 2 years. Switch is also selling to handheld enthusiast, so it has the chance of being one of their best selling devices. The only problem would be Nintendo pulling the plug on the Switch too soon, their devices are generally on a 5 - 6 year window.

Well they just went on record to say that they want to support the Switch for much longer than their traditional home consoles 5-6 year lifespan, so that's good.
