    The other consoles are literally poor man PCs, the switch is has it's own niche with combining the audience and games from nintendo's past consoles and handhelds

      How are you enjoying Splatoon 3 pcbro? You can't play it? And PC hasn't had a decent exclusive in decades? No wonder you're so desperate

        Yes, the platform doesn't need exclusives to be the best

    How? It's cleverly marketed

      But was it really? I mean Amiibo were cleverly marketed. Steamdeck was cleverly marketed. Switch didn't try anything beyond the name difference with the WiiU. I do think it was a fluke and now Nintendo is unfortunately in a position where they can just release remasters and other low-effort products.

    It’s like apple products, everyone skips a generation. Everyone got a SNES so they skipped GameCube so they all bought the Wii, and then skipped the WiiU and now everyone bought the Switch.

        there's only about 11 million or so hardcore nintendo fans in existence, wii u proved it.

        Not really, had a flow of good first party games in it's first few years. Gave you all the essentials you need from the box. Avoided the problems the VITA had with memory. Had optional gimmicks, making developers more willingly to give it a chance unlike the Wii U.

    Maybe because Nintendo fans are by extension glorified shills who sing nintendos praises like it’s a way of life

    No. When has portable Nintendo ever NOT sold well? The PS4 was more of a fluke than the Switch.

      No joke I agree. Sony did had good games but those said games came out when the PS4 was already dominating. It only got popular because it was the only console that didn't fuck up.

    I believe it but it's mindboggling. Children don't even want Nintendo shit anymore. Give them a tablet and smartphone and they'll never touch a gaming console ever in their life.

    No. About what I would expect, especially since it is also their home console.

    It was a cool novelty when there were no other handhelds that could play console games on the go but the Deck has pretty much invalidated it and inspired a new generation of copycats

    I wonder if Nintendo can break it's follow up console curse? Usually they fumble after they make a successful console.

      When 3DS fumbled they did everything they could to save it and it ended up selling a respecable 80 million. It happened at the price of Wii U, but now they don't have to support 2 systems anymore

    sadly, reality doesn't care about your feelings, and the switch is going to become the third best selling console ever before the end of the year

      i really wanna see nintendo try the wii u concept again. it was so good, just ruined by shitty marketing.
      they could even do it with a switch 2 or something, just do the reverse of the wii u: handheld main console and the dock as the streaming client.

    its pretty obvious something with this type of portability and plus potential for carrying nintendos entire library and low price point means its going to be sticking around for a very long time.
