Nintendo president expects Switch sales to match the Wii

Newsbrief: Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima has said he expects the Switch to sell as well as the Wii, which sold just over 101 million units during its lifetime.

The bold prediction comes from a recent interview with Nikkei, as translated by industry analyst, Dr. Serkan Toto.

Kimishima believes the Switch will rack up similar sales to the Wii because it "offers a unique way of playing games," a clear reference to the Switch's Joy-Con motion controllers and portable capabilities.

Let's see: No VR gaming, no 4K gaming, no BC with WII U....

Yeah, that sounds like a realistic sales projection.

2. They're misreading the hype.

It's just a course correction after Wii U, yet they act like they completely hit the mark.

3. Sad tbing the wii u was a good console, they finally got better graphics, supported all

The motion stuff, aaaaaand... made hardly any games for it...

I thought with resident evil 4, the wii had the best controll scheme ever for a shooter (even though it wasnt an fps game)...

I bought one to replace my original wii when the disc drive shit the bed.

My biggest complaint with the wiis is that tjey don't play dvds... thats just stupid.

4. Thought about buying it just for the new Zelda

Saw the price and thought no way am I going to pay that for a glorified hand held.
