Don, I know that the mod team is frustrated with the reports you submit. Your judgment of situations is insufficient. You are too biased and thus prejudice gets in your way all too often.

i'm sure you, and many people doubted the ps4 early on. pretty sure many people were saying ps4 sales wont last, i don't believe they were biased some people just don't have  positive out, and believed consoles were a shrinking market, not everyone is biased or prejudice, becuae they don't believe switch sales won't continue. 

Oh sure, how fast a console will be selling in year 1 is commonly over- or underestimated because there's no sales data whatsoever for any console before it launched. Personally, I was too low on PS4's first year, but then year 2 and 3 performed worse than the sales curve I had in mind before launch, and year 4 was surprisingly high in relation to year 2 and 3; I had pegged the PS4 at ~120 lifetime and while the individual years differed from my expectations, they evened out and thus make 120m a value that's not going to be far off.

But the comparable situation that you need to look at here is if there were people who said that PS4's year 2 would be down from its first year. There weren't any drawn out arguments over that, because there was nobody that insisted such a thing would happen. You are in a rather unique position with your claims, but you aren't alone as far as Switch is concerned.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
