Nintendo cares a out selling new hardware, not just the latest tech.
You would think after 3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS, n3DS, n3DS XL and 2DS XL people would know they roll.
They are totally gonna release new Switch versions every 1-2 year, with the goal of making core use upgrade to the latest hardware and maybe sell/gift their old system to family members or friend. They are gonna push for multiple Switches per household.
While we have cases like Xenoblade and FE Warriors as new 3DS exclusives I also don't believe that's the road Nintendo will take. I absolutely believe that there will be more powerful Switch iterations but most devs will still develop the game so that they run on the base system, just because of the installed base. So not much different than we have nowadays with n3DS, PS4Pro and XOX.Oh no I fully expect them to do like 5 versions of the Switch. Just like the 3DS though I don't think the actual hardware will change to the point where theres significant fragmentation in terms of older systems not being able to play games the same way you have with iOS/Android
I think it will outsell the 3DS at least if Nintendo keeps this momentum up, fleshes the system out with apps and VC, and drops the price some by year 3.
The wild predictions show that people are confident in the system when pre launch many thought it would flop at $300 with little 3rd party support. The flexibility of the Switch has been a huge selling point.
What It doesn't lose its flexibility as it gets older.Sure the flexibility of the Switch is a valid selling point now... but I don't see this flexibility be any useful the further we go into this gen (unless there's some new design/visual mentality that affects all future projects). :/
See you naysayers in five years!
tbf this is exactly what they've been since the wii era,it'd be either a domination like the wii/ds/3ds or a total failure like the wii uWhat is it with Nintendo hyperbole, it seems to infect everyone from internet forums all the way to massive banking executives. It's either doomed or going to take over the world, there's no in between.

It is a great product for portable multiplayer. It's like having a mini TV, console and two controllers ready for some Mario Kart where ever you go. It does this better than anything else on the market and I can't see that changing in 2-3 years unless other companies jump in on the hybrid space.
Things are changing very fast everywhere and people get addicted to something new out there. I don't think Nintendo can keep everyone attention that long to sell their hardware like now (sold to core users which can be around 20-30 million unique users max and expect them to sell around 3DS numbers only) even if they make revisions its hard to sell that much. Mobile industry is moving very fast and will be doing what gaming consoles can do in few years and so developers gonna consider that also a platform to develop for due to user base (they just need a standard controller).
Would be funny if this was a repeat of GAF's pre-launch prediction thread, where most comments were saying Switch is DOA!
"Are we missing something? Are they completely out of their minds? Is this actually a joke? I mean, anyone who knows anything about this industry knows this is a death sentence.
It's not necessarily a good thing that Nintendo will go third party after they bankrupt because of this complete disaster, but I'm glad the console itself will tank hard for trying to jump on the scammy online paywall.
They are absolutely done for."
After Doom and Wolfenstein 2, anything is possible. And if they sell well, then all bets are off.no way they'll get that high.. in fact I fuera the success of the switch will be rather short lived until Nintendo solves his problems with third parties... which they'll probably never do.

What?World-wide isn't one market. The Wii sold terribly in Japan.
People are saying that this won't happen but then again 99.9% of GAF thought the Switch would bomb following the January event and then everyone backpedalled after it came out.
L fucking mao.
I'll eat a whole family of crows if this thing is at 50 million by 2019.
Good luck though.
