    The switch already surpass the GBA and soon thx to the new model it would probably outsell the 360 and ps3 Nintendo caught lightning on a bottle just like Sony in 2000

    What’s even more astonishing is that all these consoles by all these manufactures had 000 as the final 3 numbers.

    I think Switch has the potential to outsell Gameboy in a couple of years, specially if there’s a revision.

  19. LucidClan YT on September 1, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    This really shows you how dominant Nintendo is as a company and that the console wars aren’t even a real thing bc Nintendo is just league ahead of everyone

    Switch sales are just mindblowing! Also you’re on fire with the frequent uploads!

    Switch will probably be 100 million by the end of 2021

  23. Serenade O on September 1, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    Nintendo will dominate Microsoft and Sony by the end of the year.

  24. holamoco17 on September 1, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    The Playstation 4 sold 130 mil now. So it’s third place.

  25. LoKoFe on September 1, 2021 at 11:21 pm
