Swich has the possibility to outsell the Apple Pippen(Probably Not). However, some people trying to say it'll outsell the Soulja Boy console which is just plain ridiculous, no way the Switch even comes close to soulja boy in sales

Wow those are the true challenges, but if we truly believe is the Switch it will surpass Soulja Boy Console, Gizmodo and even.. eeveen.. the Polystation.

I really wished to see the numbers of ps5 and xbox X/S, during this pandemic and with no shortages!

Only about a month away from when things get really interesting. The anniversary of animal crossing and the coronavirus.

Switch will almost definitely be down in April year over year, but we'll see if it can keep pace for the rest of the year.

With the numbers so far in 2021, it has a chance to beat 2020. It's going to come down to games though. Monster hunter should help. But I think they need another surprise for summer other than Mario Golf. I'm excited about that one. I can't imagine it's going to be setting the world on fire though.

After animal crossing launched, the switch sold more than 5 million units in the next 7-8 weeks and then continued to do BIG numbers for the rest of the year, it will be hard for MHR to replicate those numbers since AC is way more popular.

Unless Nintendo does a price cut/new model/more casual games, it seems that 2021 will be down compared to 2020.

I feel like March-May are the toughest months the switch will have YoY. The regions that it will most likely be down in are the Americas and Europe, as Japan and the Rest of the World have accumulated enough of a lead to take a hit from covid (See Rol's famistu chart, and PAO's Charts for the RoW region) I feel like ground can be made (on a monthly basis) back in June and August thorugh the end of the year, depending on what games come out.

Right. That's my reasoning. But it's all up in the air until we see more games. But it might make up for the early covid months later in the year.

Even if it doesn't catch up, I think the switch will have a pretty good year.

SvenTheTurkey kazuyamishima (on 05 March 2021)

I don't think they will release a new model nor cut the price this year. Not the calendar year anyway. Maybe march of next year.

I think the momentum is strong even without having a new game like animal crossing. They do need more first party games to prop this year up. But as long as they have a few 2-3 months in advance announcements, I think they can pull it off.

Development is still being affected by covid especially in Japan. They should still have some surprises up their sleeve. I don't expect breath of the wild 2 this year, but I wouldn't completely rule it out either. They're being careful about delays like most companies lately. No one wants to rush or delay a game.

But without a price cut, new model, or a couple big releases, you're right. They won't make it.

Switch had some extraordinary weeks in 2020, but also a few weeks with heavy shortages, where 2021 can catch up.
