    Exactly. Been saying it for the longest time. Nintendo got lucky with the Switch. They have released more flop consoles than massively successful ones.

    What? The NES, Wii, 3DS, Switch? All of these consoles have been HUGE successes.

    I smell a Sony fanboy.

    The NES sold more than its predecessor, the Color TV-Game. The NES sold 61.9 million units while the Color TV-Game sold only 3 million.

    Nintendo Color TV Game Pong Clones and Arcade Machines in my opinion do not constitute as traditional Nintendo consoles. These were one offs, with the color TV being a pong console, not a console to play multiple games. You can’t really compare the two equally.

    Color TV-Game is listed nowhere on nintendo’s website under console sales, so it’s not included.

    SNES failed when compared to NES, N64 failed when compared to SNES, GameCube failed when compared to N64 and Wii U failed compared to Wii. So, let’s see NES outsold its predecessor, SNES didn’t, N64 didn’t, GameCube didn’t, Wii did, Wii U didn’t, Switch did. So, that’s 3 out of 7 that were a success, and 4 failures. Less than 50%, what a great number!

    3DS failed compared to DS, not even half a many as its predecessor, and it had a longer lifespan than DS, yet still couldn’t even reach half a many as DS!
