How many years are we talking? I will say 30 million after 4 years. I feel like that might be on the high side.

Still believe it is designed way to close to the way the WiiU works and is just an expansion of the WiiU which only has sold in the 13 to 14 million range. I am expecting the same for the switch if not less at this point.

I have a Wii U. I love my Wii U. Switch will be another Wii U... unfortunately.

The Switch will easily sell at least twice as many systems as the Wii U because hardly anyone even knew the Wii U existed or what it was.

This is pretty much how I feel as well.

Their marketing for the Switch, while not perfect, has been waaay better than it was for the Wii U. That alone will earn it at least double the sales.

Keep releasing a great new 1st party title at least every 6 months and I wouldn't be surprised if it surpassed GameCube sales.

going with the 25-30 million range.

Wii-U had everything going against it:

-The Wii name (confused the hell out of people thinking its an addon to the wii and not a console of its own)
-long droughts of major releases
-Released at the tail end of the 7th generation console cycle.
-specs competitive with the 7th generation, but obliterated by the 8th gen. (do I have the generations correct?)
-Gimmick touchpad controller that like the original motion controls, no one knew how to utilize in a fun and unique way.
-still primitive online infrastructure
-Lack of storage space.

With the Switch we still have a power deficit but it looks like they're just completely disregarding anything wii/wii-U related and starting from scratch.
Plus its not super gimmicky, its got motion controllers (which is more or less the norm now) but other than that theres no real need to 'experience a new and different way to play' since its basically just a dockable handheld.

I see it as Nintendo's return to relevance. But not a return to dominance.

The xbox one sales estimate after about 3 1/4 years is 26 million consoles sold. I know they have different target audiences but the Xbox one is a borderline success. MS does apparently still have 47 million subscribers to xbox live which gives them quite a bit of money though. 60-80 dollars a year at 47 million... not to shabby. Then add in there store purchases and game purchases.

Nintendo doesn't have all the extra money grabs.

I don't know Sony are just as bad, in fact when vita didn't get good grades in school, Sony dropped that child faster than a hooker drops her pants.

That's 'cause Sony is focused on putting their successful kid through college.

Interesting to look back at the predictions from last year. Initially I was pretty bullish on Switch, 'cause I love the concept, so I ended up buying a fair bit of Nintendo stock at $22. However, Nintendo absolutely bumbled the unveiling event, which really made me question whether Nintendo knows what to do with a successful product even if they have one. I sold off 2/3 of my nintendo stock at a mild profit, which was clearly a mistake since the remaining chunk has nearly tripled since then.

Here's what I wrote in this thread, right after the unveiling event:

Nintendo as a company still frustrates me though. Their brilliance in game design is really unmatched, yet their poor business decisions continue to baffle me.

Clearly the switch is a success, and will definitely sell over 50 million units... maybe over 100 million?

But there's still so many areas that Nintendo continues to fumble with this platform. I still have trouble trusting them to continue the momentum after the first year. You should never underestimate Nintendo, either in their ability to succeed or to screw things up.

Numbers in the poll seem a bit high to me but I went with Mild success which means in my eyes more than the WiiU... whatever that number is.

While they stopped manufacturing the hardware they continue to support the platform with software. Even now the Vita is still getting games.

As for sales expectations, I say around 15-20 million in 5 years. It will do worse than Xbox this gen.

Vita has been dead a long time. Almost zero development.

Sold mine a year ago. Awesome hardware with no support.

Plenty of Japanese titles still being released, even this year. If you're a JRPG fan especially, Vita is one of the best platforms out there.

I love mine and use it for remote PS4 gameplay. Sony still releases free games as part of the plus program for it. Still worth owning in my opinion.

Really from what I hear Sony hasn't released any software. On vita in some time. Only the japanese developers are keeping the platform alive.

And? So Sony has to develop games to consider it support? They are publishing many of the indies on it as well as the japanese games coming to it.

So you consider not manufacturing the device and not making games for it as support?

The only reason they publish games still is because thanks to Japan the device isn't a total train wreck and it requires no expense from Sony.

I hope it fails bad bad baaaad! I want Nintendo to 1 have competitive hardware( the least powerful but at least close to competition) or just make games.. seeing dragon quest for switch and for ps4.. makes me cry thinking how much better Zelda would look on a similar powered console
BUT.. i think there are lots of people that will buy this overpriced console... its a shame for the rest of us... but this is life!

My guess is better than the WiiU, worse than the Wii. I'm not buying one, but I think it will do well.
