Yes you may make him aware of that, still won't make that relevant. The handheld is on it's dying days.

I'm pretty sure you have said predictions that doubling the HW of the WiiU it would double the main SWs sales...

On 2 or 3 of those threads our good porcupine user posted graphics showing how userbase doesn't correlate to sw sales... look at Uncharted for example, the growth on SW sales is basically indiferent to HW increase (the game increased on popularity an not on HW), because if this suposition of doubling was true then Mario Kart if released on PS4 would sell 40M? You see how ridiculous that claim is?

He didn't just said "I guess PS4 will outsell WiiU and 3DS", he gave quite precise numbers (that seems believable), that 3DS would start declining that year and that WiiU wouldn't do much better than it was doing. So he basically got 3 things right on the prediction not only the end result.

Uhnnn don't think that will happen.

As for the first you will eat your words soon... Not that you are right currently, but Ι can't discuss it further because you expect me to reply to so many things!

The second,  we're talking  about one specific game not the software generally... So for you none of the +14m  wii u buyer would purchase Mario kart when the 62% of the  already owners has, I said almost every new wii u owner was bying MK8 ! Also, you compare apples with oranges...  Simple paradigm, what does it mean to you that Mario kart 8 on a 14m  installbase has sold more than every Uncharted on PS3 which has the octaple installbase? Given porcupine's ( who is this ? )  analysis which I don't  think that I have ever seen, MK8 should sell just 4m on wii u..

 

The third is because there was no evidence for what he was predicting about 3DS when he made that prediction! 3DS was perfoming like PS4 then.

The last is hypothetical...

Not hypothetical... you are trying to deflact you being wrong instead of admitting it.

What the f@ck? 

Of course it was hypothetical, I wouldn't make such an insane prediction, especially  so early!

It was just a paradigm!

Not talking about you making that prediction... talking about you in this prediction.

Not that bold a prediction considering the Wii U sold less than 14,000,000 units. The PS4 has more or less caught up with the 3DS, and it's definitely going to sell 14,000,000 more easily. Heck, the 3DS could (albeit not as likely).

How is it not bold? This prediction was made in 2013.....



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

Wow this was a bold prediction indeed that seems like it just might come true! Too bad he is not around to see if it will happen . Was a very good read though and WOW lots of people over shot the Wii U and what it would sell!

Dernebel requested his ban but he's still active on VizionEck. He'll see this thread thanks to Kerotan.

 

 

Anyway I love threads like these. Glad my old post doesn't make me look like a fool!

I try to post here every few months 

 

Games going good. I've had so many freaking delays but now things are mostly finished. Will be re-announcing it sometime soon. Targeting 2017 release! (until I delay it again)

Good prediction, there is a pattern of overpredicting Nintendo hardware on this site. Earlier pages thought 3DS would lock 100M, Wii U would be anywhere between 20 to 50M.

In 2008 some Nintendo fans thought Wii would sell 200 million...

 Why not? Sony was expecting  ps3 to sell 150m faster than PS2, in the time that ps3 was 500-600... Even giant corporations make crazy prediction!

You forgot the Microsoft prediction of 1 billion 8th gen consoles: http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/05/24/microsoft-over-1-billion-next-gen-consoles-will-be-sold

My favorite!
