    Nintendo resisted switching to games on cellphones for years, fearing that could erode sales of its own consoles.

    Japanese video game maker Nintendo Co. stuck to its original target of selling 2 million Switch consoles in the first month after its launch, despite some anticipation the number may be raised because of brisk pre-orders.

    Even tho the latest round of Switch pre-orders sold out within hours, and Google Trends reports searching for 'Switch' is just as high as it was for PS4 during the 'pre-order' phase, Nintendo is still staying with their 2 million target and not going to increase their prediction.
    Is the real reason Nintendo, not going past 2 million, is they can't produce more than that in the first month, or are they as usual keeping the 'supply low' and 'demand high', to build up more Switch hype over the new hybrid then that really exists out there!

      Im hoping its because they dont want to miss their mark, considering the **** they get from investors/ANALysts who would rip them from missing any goals or increases in revenue.

      That said, the switch wont be a day one purchase from me, too high price and not enough exclusives (dont care for the portable aspect as of now).
