Will the Switch fail?

Nintendo's new console is coming out soon. Do you think it will succeed or fail?

I don't understand how the switch will fit into anyone's pocket and they don't have any games I want to play enough to buy the system. I'll stick to my 3DS.

Nintendo fans actually buy their games, which is more I can say for Sony and Microsoft fans. I was a Sony fanboy before the announce of the Switch, but the so called "Playstation Nation" doesn't even support their games. They don't buy them. They just sit around on the PS4 all day watching Netflix and gossiping. And the few people who actually play games are only ever playing crap like Destiny or Call of Duty. I can't stand it. Just look at the sales for Sony's exclusives. People were excited, throwing parties over Uncharted 4 selling 8 million copies in a year, which is NOTHING for Nintendo. Some Pokemon game for the 3DS I think, sold 15 million in a month! Nintendo would be EMBARRASSED if one of their games only sold 8 million copies in a goddamn year. Especially since actual good games like Bloodborne (truly, one of the greatest video games of all time) can only sell 2 million copies in 2 years? I'm done with Sony and the "Playstation Nation." These people are completely insane.

The Switch is already sold completely out all over the world. I don't see how it can fail.

False. None of the Gen6 games managed to sell 15 million in even two years. And the Gen7 games haven't crossed 15 million in the three months they've been out.

Splatoon has sold less than 5 million copies in a year and a half. It's been considered a rousing success and is getting a sequel on the Switch. And even better: No Zelda game (Not counting re-releases as being the same game; ie Ocarina of Time and Ocarina of Time 3D are separate) has ever sold more than 8 million copies, and that's one of their biggest franchises. (Twilight Princess has been out for ten years, and it's only passed 8 million if you add in the sales numbers for the Gamecube and Wii U versions) Super Mario 3D World, a main game from their flagship franchise...hasn't broken 5 million copies to this day.

I could go on if you wanted.

Sales estimates from six months after the game was released. Also, Bloodborne hasn't been out for two years.

This part I can agree with; they even made sure people have tried the product, which is where a lot of the hype has been generated. (As opposed to the Molyneux Method of just making **** up and hoping no one cares you're lying)

Excuse W3? According to its Wiki page: "As of December 31, 2016, the game has shipped 14.69 million copies, already outselling Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire." - http://vgsales.wikia.com/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon

Bloodborne came out March 24th 2017, that's close enough to 2 years. And since December, the game has sold 2,609,404 units. That's pathetic. One of the greatest games of all time, and nobody bought it.

5 million copies is still more than the 2 million Bloodborne sold, or any other Sony exclusive. Gravity Rush, Yakuza, Dragon Quest Heroes. Nobody buys these games, and they're some of the best out there. In fact, they sell so poorly that Sony LOST Dragon Quest Heroes to the Switch.

Yes. You said a Pokemon game on 3DS broke 15 million copies in a month. Except no Pokemon game has ever done that, as you just proved.

First off, one of the greatest? You're being pretty generous there.

Second, 2 million units sold isn't bad. Compared to Psychonauts and Okami, two actually really amazing games...both of which sold to the tune of 200,000.

And? All you're doing is showing off how little you understand about sales figures. Yeah, Yakuza sold so poorly, that's what it's gotten six sequels, a prequel, and a bunch of spinoffs. Gravity Rush also got a sequel released just a couple weeks ago. And Dragon Quest Heroes wasn't "lost" to the Switch, it's being ported over. (It's also a third-party title, Sony had nothing to do with it)
