Agreed. The wait had gone on too long already, they couldn't sit on a dead console and a declining handheld forever.

This way at least they have 8 months or so to try to build up momentum for the holiday season, and if the system stumbles they can cut the price in time for the Christmas rush.

An interesting image from Emily Rogers.

Its not fair and not accurate this comparison , real bias.

 

Putting Arms and TW101 on thé same level ? Lol really ?

 

And so many WiiU ports on Switch side

 

Although its not fair to count Xenoblade 2 which didnt release yet and could bé delayed ( especially in thé west, i can easily bet that it will bé delayed) and on thé other sidd not count thé WiiU games announced for thé first year and got delayed, its liké people never learn.

 

Really not an objective comparison, well compare thé number of exclusives on Switch After its first year against WiiU first year, something tells me itll advantage WiiU



Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m

 

i mostly agree. I don't consider this things true "launch" until mario is out. This thing is going to be sold out everywhere for holiday. Gettem now before the scalpers do! lol smh.



Only 2-3M units ready for launch?

That's a lot! The guys who posted that should do some research and see how many units the PS4 and XBO had ready for their respective launch.

Still in its twilight years and passed its prime though.

But it's not declining. So why did you say that, if it's not true?

Still not declining. So I don't see why you said that. 

It's still declined considerably from its prime, but "ageing" probably would've been a better term.

Something tells me you're trying to make us believe that you're crazy at this point.
