They don't seem to be selling many consoles on weekly basis.

Do not use VZChartz.com! It is a highly unreliable site.

Honestly this gen has restored my faith in Nintendo, compared to the Wii-u and Wii systems which were a complete let down for me. They also saved E3 this year for me as well cause outside of 2077 there wasn't a lot of impressive games or games I would want to buy day 1.

They made a 3DS successor, which sells about the same as 3DS. They essentially bowed out of the "home console" space by building a tablet. But they have made a successful handheld successor which can also be docked and played on television as a slightly better than last gen console platform.

We need a minimum post rule of 500+ again.

In what parallel universe did they fail? The Switch is a raging succes.

Not really sure which gen you're talking about. Wii-U failed hard. Switch is doing well.

Are they considered the same gen?

Not to mention, SW doesn't have active mods anymore to monitor SW. 500 rules is useless without mods support.

Ive got a girl that monitors my google account. Maybe some of the alts are her lol.

Still the 500 post rule would in the very least clean up the forum just a tad. But then you get those EXTRA special folk that feel cool brute forcing old, unused accounts. Omg the lengths some people go through to troll.........on a VIDEO GAME FORUM! Its so sad.

Oh for the love of...

And for those asking about the 500 rule, I tried about a year ago. It didn't get traction. I'd love it.

Re. the vaunted 500 rule. How is someone supposed to get to 500 posts if they aren't allowed to post to get to 500 posts?

the 500 rule is for creating threads, not posting. Need 500 posts before you can make shit threads like this one.

If this board wasn't as dead as it was, i'd be all behind the old 500 post rule. As much as it sucks, the thread would be even worse if implemented again... That's just sad.

Yes they have... again.

The Switch is Wii all over again, minus the portable aspect. A system that everyone is buying... and its quite popular but... They released another system with sub-par hardware that can barely run most third party (console) ports having massive visual downgrades. And surprise surprise, it's biting them in the ass again in the long-run. Why did they abandon their two system per generation lineup? Going with this route has made a lot of compromises in the 'home console' part of it. The Switch is a decent portable system on its own otherwise.

VG Chartz isn't a reliable source. Stick with Nintendo's official figures :)

Nah, nothing like the wii. The marketing and software being pushed is almost the complete opposite.

Switch is a failure. It’s not even a real console. Nintendo has officially dropped out of the console race.

It is a handheld. The switch mini proves it.

Sheep were lied to.
