- SNES was well criticized and took some time to get going yet came back to become market leader.
- PS4 and Switch selling at similar price points is the point NS hasn't had a price cut it's still selling at launch price which is console price range yet it's a close race.
Well at the time internet wasn't a thing and here in my neighborhood (in Brazil) SNES was very much liked, so I wasn't aware of any criticism. It took time to become market leader because of the time it took to launch and Sega doing well, but from what I knew it wasn't for poor reception.
And PS4 is after its peak, so they are comparable. Also Sony expect to ship 16M against 18M of Nintendo, so it would be another close year (which so far seems unlikely).
