And in only 2 months of actual sales.

Top 10 best selling Switch games in the US

1. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
2. Super Mario Odyssey
3. Mario Kart 8
4. Splatoon 2
5. Mario & Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
6. ARMS
7. Pokken Tournament DX
8. 1-2 Switch
9. Xenoblade Chronicles 2
10. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Imagine how s***'ll sell when it's actually reasonably priced and coming out at the same time? Expecting Dark Souls to pretty much outsell the other versions outright.

Portability isn't to be overlooked. Some games benefit disproportionately.
Surely there's no problem with them putting me in Brawl, right?
It's ****ing satire, damnit. 6 times 3 isn't 200 either!

Skyrim is different... It reminds me of the cult that follows Pokemon, which I'm one of.

Take the VC releases of R/B/Y and now G/S/C. They sell millions and there's really no reason.
Skyrim has a fan base that loves it and makes it popular no matter the system. Simple talk about it hypes it for everyone even if they don't like that type of game.

That all said though... 1-2 switch sold better?
Edit: Never mind yearly numbers make sense that 1-2 switch is higher.

I think Dark Souls will sell incredibly well on Switch. I don’t know that it will outsell the PS4 version.

1-2 Switch probably sold well by having the benefit of being a launch title. Not much competition for it at the time. I doubt it would do as well if it was released today.

It’s a great game. One of the greatest. It will sell and be played everywhere.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate.

There is a reason and that's nostalgia. Also, competitively you can now transfer pokemon from those games and I think there's pokemon with certain moves you can't get in other games.

And a universally hated game, completely destroyed by needless microtransactions in order to progress, is number 2 on that overall software list.

It's almost like it doesn't matter if "a ton" of people get behind boycotting anything on the internet, it doesn't even make the slightest dent in sales '-))

Skyrim has a ton of content. But still shouldn't be $60
