Coming up on the PS4. It’s crazy to think it’s come this far in such a short time. It really shows the appeal of a hybrid system.
I’m really interested to see where the Big N goes from here. Do they continue on with a Switch 2 or do they do something completely different? Ever since the Wii they haven’t gone the same route in starting a new generation.

I really think they should continue with a Switch 2. If I made decisions for Nintendo, I would keep in the Switch well until it dries up. Honestly why not? If you come out with a much more powerful Switch you still offer the portable/console best of both worlds again scratching two itches. I certainly am not tired of what the Switch offers. I'm not even chomping at the bit for a new Switch...though I know that the more hardcore gamer certainly seems to be wanting an upgrade. Whenever and whatever Nintendo brings I'll be there.

I agree with you on a Switch 2 but they haven’t really followed that path in the past. Im hoping they do come out with a Switch 2, or possibly an improved Wii U were the portable part isn’t tethered to a more powerful base console.

Blaming the semiconductors shortage for their year on year decline in sales?? Really? Throughout this whole pandemic I've seen Nintendo switches readily available at any given time, unlike the ps5 and series X.

Slight drop YoY, but that's to be expected given that it's in it's 6th year. Still, great hardware sales. Will become the third best selling console of all time by the end of the year

Best selling handheld console, as the Switch is a handheld?

A console can be either home or handheld. Video game console is generic and not specific. Regardless of what you think the Switch is, it's still a video game console.

Forgotten Land became the best selling Kirby game in only a few months. Nicely done.

Or the fact that the Switch is hitting its limit. I work for a major retailer in the UK and we sell nowhere near as many. Stock is bulked to the ceiling. Even game sales have dried up.

Yeah, you wish. It's literally up YoY in Europe

If no revisions come, then it’s going to be 3rd best selling console for sure. If a “Pro” version drops, all bets are off. But it’s getting a little late for a Pro.
