Sounds about right, with 2 weeks left it only needs to average about 311k or so.

It makes sense, did the Wii kill the DS's sales? It is a portable gaming system, not a true home console successor. Even though I want a new home console very badly from Nintendo, I don't see why Nintendo would even bother releasing a Switch pro this year. There is no portable competition. Not even a Vita. Sony should get Apple's chips in a portable device and go crazy. Or grab that Samsung chip with the Radeon graphics in it coming out in a few months.

If Nintendo has proved anything in home consoles and portables, it's that power isn't everything. So yeah. Idk if Sony could or would want to try another portable yet. Sony seems content with the home market. Sony would rather stream to phones as their handheld alternative. Nintendo is all in on the hybrid.

The psp was successful, but paled in comparison to ds. Then the handheld market was eviscerated by smart phones. The 3ds did pretty well, but there wasn't any room left in the market I guess. I doubt we will see another dedicated handheld other than switch spinoffs.

power isn't important if you are the only portable in the race, it sure is important in the home console market, the Wii U died because the controller sucked, it was expensive and not powerful enough...

I didn't even talk about the Wii u....

The Wii and ds were successful and not powerful. The gameboy was successful and not powerful. The gameboy advance was successful and not powerful. Yes, it's mostly true for portables. But the Wii shows it isn't necessarily a portable trait.

None of those were the only console on the market, home or portable. The Wii u was marketed poorly with a bad launch lineup. Any name would have helped. People had wii fatigue and didn't understand it. 3d world at launch would have helped instead of nsmb u. There was also nsmb fatigue especially since nsmb 2 came out a month or two before the Wii u and was a better game. Fix those two things and you have a 30 million unit seller. Not great. But better.

On the topic of the controller, the second screen was questionable. But it was a comfortable controller and the gyro was great.
