Seen as you keep ignoring the FACTS. I'm not a mod, can't open your UNITY thread even if I wanted too, and I didn't ask for it to be locked. I have a hunch you did.
So I'm gonna ask Kahn to comment on this wall post and ask why he locked it.
"I locked it because discussion had become circular and all it had become was a source of reports and headaches for us. If i didn't lock it, somebody else did. I believe i posted that on his wall, as well. "
Opinions on this holidays sales and WiiU being third place? You didn't really touch on it in your thread.
I mean... if you were to apply that logic to the PS2 generation where people had a PS2 + (either other system) then surely you would have seen the Original Xbox and GC selling in the hundreds of million systems?
I was in the middle of a discussion in the thread when the moderators suddenly locked it due to you guys' behavior.
You want to discuss the sub-topic of my sales predictions? You get my UNITY thread unlocked.
There's something called keeping things ON-TOPIC.
You're not gonna derail FACTS vs. FICTION with discussions not covered in the topic.
There IS a sub-topic about sales in my UNITY thread so get my thread unlocked so we can discuss that sub-topic THERE.
There was no derailing, only FACTS about NUMBERS proving your thread and theory WRONG. That is not off topic.
I can't help what other people do in the discussion.
The things those people did were designed to SHUT DOWN the discussion. To silence what I & other people had to say.
I once again request the UNITY thread to be opened & that those who bring that kind of mayhem to the discussion be disciplined accordingly.
Seece wants to discuss the UNITY sub-topic of my sales predictions & it seems he wants to derail my new thread to talk about it.
I understand what a forum is supposed to be about & I know how to keep things ON-TOPIC.
In the UNITY thread, I have sub-topics about sales & the general 8th generation race.
It is THERE where his requests for discussing the latest happenings with XBox One should take place.
If he wants to discuss the points I made in my new FACTS vs. FICTION post, he can do so.
But I will NOT let him turn it into another silly show & derail the topic.
He's free to discuss the topic of second consoles, Microsoft's decision to unbundle Kinect, "traditional controllers", the importance of the Japanese market, & the ramifications of the "strongest console".
That's what 'FACTS vs. FICTION - Volume 1' discussed.
If he wants to talk about what was discussed in the UNITY threadâ€”including the sub-topic of the 8th generation console race, then the UNITY thread must be reopened.
It's a sale discussion, Kahn and other mods will not moderate me and others for disproving your theories with cold hard facts, logic and numbers Lucas.
You're just gonna have to keep on ignoring those numbers on the front page.
Any predictions for this coming year? Don't worry about those others on your wall, they should not be harrassing you anyways. Just say your peace in a thread and leave it at that.
Hmmm, it's been a while since you came here. People have been waiting for you because they secretly agree with you, but refuse to admit it. Think about it: if they truly considered you stupid, why would they even pay attention to what you do?
I find it ridiculous how people are hurt by this story, as if their lives were threatened.
I think it's a combination of people agreeing with me & also people scared that I am right.
The hate towards Nintendo comes from the simple fact that people know they're the strongest force.
It's resentment. They can't conquer this one & it frustrates them.
That resentment & frustration comes from the 3rd party developers/publishers in rebellion against Nintendo then filters into the general gaming public.
The public apes the attitudes of the bitter spiteful 3rd parties trying to wrest control of the industry from the one who MADE this industry 30 years ago out of the ashes of the 1983 Crash.
So when I underline how dominant Nintendo is, how resilient Nintendo is, & how all the traits Nintendo is known for will ultimately give them the final word...
...people under the steady drumbeat of spiteful 3rd party propaganda get mad.
They have been thoroughly convinced through decades of gaming media distortions that Nintendo is on its way out, that it's past its prime, that it's time is up.
They keep waiting for the other shoe to drop since Sega had to pack it in with the Dreamcast 13 years ago.
Nintendo was supposed to fall right after them so the 3rd party can rule this business outright...
...and then That Didn't Happen...
...and then It's STILL Not Happening.
Anytime you show this truth of what Nintendo is, you get the backlash from those who have fed the false picture.
It doesn't matter how many facts you show historical or current, certain gamers have been convinced that Nintendo is Done.
And if Nintendo is FAR FROM Done in Reality, what does that do to the people who believed in the Falsity?
5 Stages of Grief I guess.
Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance.
It's hard to lose a false worldview you built your life around.
Nintendo UNIFIES the business in the 8th Generation.
And there's nothing the rebellious 3rd parties & their believers can do about it.
Right now I will receive the Laughter of Denial mixed with the Fury of Anger.
As the generation goes on, I will receive more Furious Anger along with the Whys of Barganing.
Towards the end I will receive the Tears of Depression along with the Whys of Bargaining.
Who knows if I'll ever get the Serenity of Acceptance from them?

Seece said: Skimmed your post, your maths leaves much to be desired, born in 88 (greatest year ever).None of what you say has any logic in it, how powerful the 360 is or what it sells today (or the last 7 years) has absolutely nothing to do with how Playstation or N64 sold. And with that I'm done. Until you start answering the questions people actually want answering, and not falling into...
