You are on record to confidently make predictions and draw conclusions about the Switch's future with much less information being available. But now that we have more information than one year ago and things didn't play out as you thought, you are changing your stance to "we can't know"? That's rich.

Am I? I'm pretty sure as far as the Switch goes I've said that I don't think it will outsell the Wii, I might have mentioned that I think the Switch will end up somewhere between 70-90 million units, but I've never tried to defend either of those as being any more than a guess. The only really concrete prediction or point I've made about Switch sales as far as I can remember is saying that it might be tough for the Switch to beat the PS4s first year. Even then it was a "eeehhh I don't know, that seems unlikely" and not the "Haha what?!?! You don't think the Switch is going to sell 100+ million units and crush everything forever?!?!? LOLOLOLOL" That this thread (and site) has been full of.

Well I don't know what you mean by "confidently predict"exactly, but "I don't think Switch will outsell the Wii" is a pretty long term prediction at least. Switch will most likely be on the market for at least 5 years.
