Nintendo's hardware business isn't going anywhere. Firstly, they still have enough money from the massive success of the Wii, and their handhelds to afford several console failures. Furthermore, they're the only console maker that truly designs innovative hardware. Lastly, yes most kids these days are into Nintendo. If you don't realize this your living in some weird bubble.

So far it seems to still be selling well. There is still excitement for it. I even saw two girls late teens, early twenties standing out front of best buy posing for pictures with one the other day.

I really don't get all the excitement for it ATM though. It has Zelda and that's pretty much it. There aren't any apps, there's next to nothing on the Eshop, it's just a really expensive way to play Zelda ATM and there are so many other good games coming out right now, my switch has gotten a whopping 4 hours maybe of use in the month I have owned it. I love the idea of it, the potential it has, I would have bought one at some point any way so I would rather take the expense earlier than later but its just a mildly expensive dust collector for me right now.


NM, I think I get the hype now. It's pretty much a new I-Phone. No real reason to upgrade other than being able to say you have one.

I don't get it either with really only one game worth buying for it at the moment. I can see this as something I might not be buying for maybe 2 years with how little software is available for it right now. Also the usual Nintendo poor online implementation.

You would think so. But Nintendo has had their fair share of questionable decision making.

But yeah let's hope that is the case.

Bleh, Its in stock at retail many places today, I even have s $50 gift card I could put towards it, but cant find a reason to buy it since I own BOTW on WiiU. And nothing is coming out in the near future to even consider it, I want to, but it will just collect dust for months on end!

I'm of the opposite mind. I'd rather hold onto my money and wait until its a worthwhile buy. Maybe when it has a more robust library, or when a hardware revision is released.

I don't think its selling as well as its competitions console launches. The Wii U sold really well up until it hit the 8 million mark and then it bottomed out. I honestly feel that there are only 10-15 million Nintendo Console fans out there now. Kids really don't care much about Nintendo as a brand. Zelda is a perfect example that Nintendo knows this.

We rarely have people coming in asking for the Switch, If anything we have more coming in asking for the 3DS.

My assumption is that come same time next year sales will begin to slump when 3rd parties are still a no show and its being held up only by Nintendo software.

The Wii u only sold well until the 3 million mark. After that it tanked.

I still think its way too early to really know.

Taking a look at how its doing this time next year will probably be when you'll be able to start to really gauge its success.

Bolded items I think highlight your own paradigm. Nintendo doesn't have as much money as people think they do. When I last looked it was something like 5 billion and was trending down slightly (minor lift due to licensing of Pokemon Go). Also, since Nintendo hasn't really had a hit console in 10+ years (peak of Wii), anyone below say 16, has in no way experienced an era where Nintendo was dominant in the console area.

It's pretty far short of Playstation and Xbox numbers at their starts. Also, I think they slump before a year from now if not from lack of 3rd party or Indie but also the new "Switch Tax". Games a couple years old being ported that cost more then current or when they launched in the first place? Not good.

My point was also considering Nintendo's handheld market, which is absolutely dominant.

Go out and try to find a kid that doesn't own some variation of a Nintendo DS. I think you'd have a hard time.

In 2017, would not be more likely to find a kid that only does mobile gaming than one that plays on nintendo handhelds?

Hmm, I think it would be more likely to find a kid that does both, mobile phone and Nintendo handheld gaming.

Doubtful that most kids ONLY game on phones. At some point they're probably going to get a dedicated handheld gaming system and Nintendo is the go-to for that.

I don't have actual numbers though, so this would be my guess from anecdotal experience.

I've noticed that Nintendo seems to advertise more on kids TV channels. For the first time in forever, I was watching some cartoon and every ad break had an ad for Fruit Loops and Poochy and Yoshi's Wooly World. Game wasn't even all that new at the time. Also, I don't think Nintendo only advertises 3DS this way...

Challenge Accepted. I'll ask the neighborhood kids this weekend.

They dont do obvious but they do make money. So what people outside of the company think they should do doesnt matter to them.

Wonder what they were thinking with their handling of the NES Classic edition then.

They could have done gangbusters with that but chose not to make it widely available. That's a company that makes money?

They could have done gangbusters with that but chose not to make it widely available. That's a company that makes money?
They sold as many as they wanted to make.

Nintendo is one of the most stubborn companies in existence. If they didn't have the franchises they do, they would've disappeared long ago.

Yup. If they hadn't had Miyamoto or Gunpei Yokoi, they would have been a horrible failure decades ago.

They'd still be around as a company. They'd just be making something different like toys or something.

I think a lot of people forget, or just don't realize they've been around for well over 100 years. Bit longer than video games.

We rarely have people coming in asking for the Switch, If anything we have more coming in asking for the 3DS.

My assumption is that come same time next year sales will begin to slump when 3rd parties are still a no show and its being held up only by Nintendo software.
I still can't find a Switch in Stock near me. I check regularly, because I'm looking for anyou new games or accessories.

I might have to start scoping out some switches and flipping them for some extra cash.
