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.
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?
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.
