Digitimes, which isn’t always the most reliable source, are reporting that Nintendo is expecting to ship twenty million Nintendo Switch consoles during its first year on sale. The news was obtained by the publication from a Taiwan-based supply chain maker. The same site says that Nintendo president Kimishima Tatsumi has said he expects Nintendo Switch overall sales to hit 110 million units.




    • If after E3 we don’t have many 3rd party games announced, then I will start to worry. Surprises are not only good to Nintendo, but to the 3rd party developers as well, it might increase the hype for their titles if they announce it big.

  1. Lol yeah no. Nintendo just upped their Switch production from 8 mil to 16 mil for the 2017-2018 financial year. How can they expect to ship 20 million when they’re only planning to produce 16 million?

    Also, the source article claims that Sony is expected to release a thinner version of the PS4 later this year; a year after they released the PS4 Slim. Sure.

  2. No at least not with everyhing I know about the systems line up for this year right now. Maybe if they have many suprises left like Twilight Princess HD, Majoras Mask HD, Smash 4.5, Pikmin 4, Monster Hunter Switch, Pokemon for Switch, Mario Maker port, the new Mario Odyssey game recieves 10/10 hype as well and they are able to release Xenoblade Chronicles 2 this year,

    But…that… is not going to happen.


  3. Nintendo needs to make this console last at least 6 years, eventually with ‘pocket’ versions and the likes. They need a long time to cement trust from consumers and third parties after the failing Wii U that everyone should forget about.
    No more failures from Nintendo, and third parties will jump on its next console from the start.
    ‘It prints money’, that must be in the head of all people. 6 years.
