It's funny looking back at posts like these predicting the switch would fail. Back then the wii u was such a disappointment and flop that a lot of us probably got caught up in that.

The switch's first party games are infinitely better than the wii u's though.

Even back then using the Wii U's failure as a reason to think the Switch would also fail was laughable when the 3DS had a decent run.  When the Switch was first announced the 3DS sales were over 60 million, and had several 10 million plus sellers on the system.  The 3DS showed the many of Nintendo's franchises were still pretty popular, it's just people weren't willing to buy both a 3DS and Wii U to play them.  So with the Switch making Nintendo's games appear on only one system, the worst case scenario for the Switch was always going to put it closer to the 3DS in sales then the Wii U.

True. I think also the switch has far better games than the wii u e.g. Odyssey > 3D world, Smash ultimate > smash 4, etc..

Plus, the 3DS had an insanely miserable launch and still managed to be a success overall. I find that wild, but it’s pretty cool.

Yeah it got a big pricedrop and some interesting games, unlike the launch.
