NPD Analyst Mat Piscatella has commented on the Reset Era forums and has stated that with the way things are the Nintendo Switch is poised to surpass Wii sales over the first 10 months of sales in North America. Here’s what he had say:
“Switch is on pace to exceed Wii by 20%+ over the first 10 months of sales. The thing is though, the Switch, from a demographic and usage basis, is nothing like the Wii. It’s much more a core gamer console than anything Nintendo has done since maybe NGC? …and because it’s a hybrid, multi console ownership per household could be a thing, making upside potential bigger than the Wii.”
“If Pokemon comes next year I can easily see Switch outpacing Wii and taking 40+ share of the hardware market next year, but it does depend on if Pokemon is next year or not.”
This is pretty impressive coz the wii did pretty well.
*pretty* well? I though 100M+ was very damn good :P
The system itself, sure, but the game attachment rate was quite atrocious.
When it comes to Nintendo Japan President Kimishima, business is ALWAYS good!
Lord Kimishima is doing a very well job. He deserve all of our respect

But the question is… where is Michael Pachter?
That man isn’t a menace to us. You don’t have to worry about him.
So it all depends on Pokemon, or Lord and Savior.
Pokemon isn’t enough for making the sales up. Nintendo needs support from companies and nindies who believes and bring their games to the system.
Also don’t forget about the mightiest weapon from the big N. Here’s a hint
Yeah, no as great as the Metroid Prime trilogy was, hardware sales will hardly change with its release. You’ll get maybe an extra 500,000 consoles sold during opening week and then not provide a substantial change in sales from there on out. Pokemon sells a consistent 15 million copies per release and would force the 3ds crowd to grab a Switch if they haven’t already. Pokemon is MASSIVE. Metroid Prime is AWESOME. MASSIVE trumps AWESOME in hardware sales every time (not to say that Pokemon games are bad, they’re consistently solid).
I didn’t say
DigimonPokemon is bad. I only said Nintendo needs more support for the next year. Even if they already know what to do in 2018 but I want to see some support from good companies
Maybe it will outpace Wii’s first 10 month sales, maybe not, but it definitely will sell well over 100M units eventually
This is awful hard to believe. The Wii sold over 100 million units in it’s lifetime.
That’s a serious lot of wiis. I mean I’ve probably had 55500 in my lifetime and I’m 38, but then that could be more if I’ve been drinking. Lol
This is referring to Wii’s first 10 months, not it’s entirely lifetime sales.
Ahhhh, now it makes sense.
It’s inevitable that the Switch will dominate HARD.
