And here's an example of the same unreasonable argumentation:

You casted doubt on Switch having online multiplayer on launch day.

Aww that's sweet that you think it's an unreasonable argument to point out real world examples where expectations of a future console based on a current console turned out to be incorrect.

Ahh, right. How could I forget that there were rumors that the Switch wasn't actually going to have any online presence at launch at it turned out the rumors
were to do with the "Nintendo Switch Online" service and not online multiplayer itself. Yeah, super unreasonable. Great job quote mining out of context!

But thanks for once again proving that you keep a document on me.

Why don't you own up to the things you say?


Here we have a double standard:

What's acceptable with it? Again, it's 2017! It isn't 1997. It's not even 2007. Online play has become a fundamental part of console gaming in the past 15 years. Can you imagine Sony or Microsoft announcing their next consoles and telling people they won't have any online services for the first six months? Fuck, Microsoft tried to launch a console three years ago that required an online connection, but here we are with people trying to pass off the fact that this is missing at launch as even moderately acceptable. If this type of shit isn't ready at launch, delay your console and spare yourselves the embarassment! It has to be obvious to you at this point that the launch of the Switch has been rushed. This console isn't ready. This platform definitely isn't ready. But fuck it. Rushing things out the door in the video game industry has never worked out poorly, has it?

So you're solution is to just wait. Maybe if you watched the video in question, you'd be able to list off a bunch of reason why waiting for this information could be catastrophic for the Switch.

For someone who harasses others about making assumptions because "we don't know", you were quick to make a definitive claim that Switch is being rushed and not ready, expanding on it by strongly implying that it will result in failure. Switch went on to have the best sales during the first 12 months of a console in video game history.

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