I knew the 3DS had a rough start, but didn't realize that original DS did as well, to an extent

Yes, the DS went boom with the release of the DS lite, before that the race between the psp and the DS was actually close. After lite, the just sky rocket it the hell out of it

Never liked aligned launches. It's misleading.

I mean lets say both console A and B sell the same amount in their first year.

Console A launches in all 3 regions same day and sells out. It sells 1 million total.
Console B launches in all 3 regions seperately. The console manufacturer obviously allocates more consoles to the region it is launching in, so instead of say 333k per region week 1 in each region, it gets 750k in each region on its launch week, or the first to launch even a million cause they allocate all consoles there.

But what does it look like Aligning launches?
Console A. 333k US, 333k Japan, 333k Europe
Console B. 1m US. 750k Japan, 750k Europe

Aligning launches makes console B look like it is destroying console A, yet as I said in the beginning, both consoles in 1 year sold eactly the same. 12 million consoles. They sold the same each week as well. It's just due to allocated to plan for launch demand, the one console just decimates the other when ALLIGNING launches.

 

and just doing simple math, again lets say they sell the same every week. If console B launches in region 2 a month later than region 1, that means aligning launches, it will have technically a whole month of extra sales over Console A. When region 3 launches, it will again have more free sales over Console A. It's unfair comparison.

After first full year the trend is pretty much established, with exception of DS figures, which exploded past year three.
