    Nintendo are planning to make 25-30 million Switches next year financial year. Seems a bold move. Does this mean we're in for some big titles?

    They've already sold upwards of 15 mil, right, and still only 8 months or so into its life? Should be 20 mil by Christmas, now there's a Zelda, a Mario, and a (reheated) Mario Kart. Amongst all the third party shizzle.

    If they retain momentum, 30 mil in the next financial year is eminently doable.

    Just Yoshi and Kirby next year from them that we're aware of though, right? You'd imagine a Pokemon might be in there somewhere, and possibly a Pikmin.

    2018 as been kept under wraps so far, so it would be interesting to see what they do have. I think they released at least one big title every month except april and november where 3rd parties have had a month to themselves. I think One big title a month is Nintendo intention so it be interesting to see what pans out.

    Fire Emblem, Yoshi, and Kirby are certs, and i would imagine Pikmin 4 being another since it seems to be finished for some time. I Cant see Metroid and Pokemon happening till 2019.

    Perhaps Animal Crossing is that sales driver? Certainly expands their audience to the female demographic.

    @Phattso They sold around 8 million, not 15 million ;)

    @Phattso As soon as I saw they were going to produce another 25m next year, my first thought was "there's a Pokemon game coming".

    Really? I could swear I read somewhere that they'd already sold more than the Wii U lifetime sales, and I thought that was North of 12 mil?

    Odd.

    They sold half the Wii U lifetime sales in 6 months.

    @Phattso Yeah its around the 8 mill figure at the moment. Though i expect them to beat the wii u sales by the end of the FY for sure. Maybe even reach 15 million if they can pump out enough units.

    People who have doom, can you tell me how the offline botmatches work? It appeals to me to have that as an option, but I'm curious how much of the actual weaponry etc is locked behind levelling up. Is it a lot, or is it just cosmetic stuff that has to be unlocked?

    I think the switch has an arcade mode in which you can play the whole story mode with everything unlocked. It's just a score attach.

    It's a shame they bumped the player made content on this version.

    Yeah I know about the arcade mode from the PC version. It's not everything unlocked, just all the weapons you'd normally have for that stage. It's the MP botmatches that I'm curious about.

    I think its more "what it means" than the app itself. This is the first real non-game app, the floodgates are about to open.
    It means we can stop pretending the Switch isnít a tablet.

    Maybe within 2 weeks? Earlier the better though. Not that it really matters. It's an American code if that's okay?
    Mate Iím reallly sorry. I missed this and forgot I had offered. Probably best to give it to someone else as Iím a bit all over the place at the moment. Sorry to keep you hanging.

    So I got Doom. Donít have time to fuck about with it (canít check your bot stuff Duff - matron).

    But it looks and plays gloriously. Canít see how youíd ever know it was compromised unless you ran a side by side.

    For someone coming from the Wii U itís absolutely cracking. Thatís on a TV, have to go out now sadly.

    @DangerousDave_87

    Ok, ok. I'll write a review! I don't need the code as I've already got the game. The review will suck but there you go. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

    Bought Doom yet? 😀

    @brigadier

    The very fine user DangerousDave, who may or may not have succumbed to the urge to buy Doom, has 'convinced' me to write a review of Chess Ultra. I'll try to do it this weekend. I don't need the code as I already have the game.

    @rice_sandwich

    Cheers buddy, that would be amazing. Saved me having to write about something I know bugger all about, even if I had the time.

    As a celebration, when the review is published I'll stick the the download code on here for someone to use.

    (unless Mfolf swiped it already haha)

    I could write the review if rice doesn't want to.

    That said, rice has nearly finished it... ;)

    How many words should it be roughly? Should I give it a score or a recommended / essential?

    @rice_sandwich I'm waiting for The inevitable expansion, Mortgage Doom. Kicking your backside at pinball will keep me occupied for the time being! :D
