I've been called a hater, biased, lowballer, pessimistic, sony fanboy, to have an agenda, and a few other things that i don't remember now for months but I guess i was living in the right dimension after all.....

To all of you that called me that...THANK YOU.

I mean, coming from 2 years ago this day, where most of ye were predicted that it would go either 30m max, or sell worse than the WiiU, I like how we are at this playing field feeling vindicated over downplaying how successful a console might be. 

I think we are at a good place :)

I guess nobody is going to apologize or admit defeat, and i won't put names, but you know who you are...

Those posts show that you are partially right and partially wrong, so they aren't the material with which you can claim a victory. Except against the very worst of predictors, but that's nothing special.

Also, you'd be better off by naming names, because based on your two posts in this thread it isn't clear what exactly you expect and from whom.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Hell we had someone the whole year basically say it would sell 14 million, and one person coughyouknowwhocough say it would not outsell gamecube in March of 2018.

How i am partially right and partially wrong?!?!?!?!? LOL

I am 100% spot on saying it will ship around 9-10M and 32M by Q3...pfff

Wow, so those are your answers??, I need to go back and check every post for the last 2 or 3 months so you admit i was right??.... So petty

So difficult is to say, by the people who were wrong...."Yes, i was wrong". Period.

Since you're making sweeping generalizations and not naming people, I can do the same. Period.

Can we make a "Switch sales surpassed N64's sales" or is it too soon yet ? :D

Almost, but not yet :D

Damn, for the HW numbers being so close, the difference in SW is pretty huge.

You have Switch at 16-16.5m sell-through in calendar year 2018 and that was one of the main reasons why you've been called a lowballer and other things that you've complained about in your first post in this thread.

It's easy to figure from the first linked post that you want an apology from Miyamotoo, but beyond that it's unclear.

If you think you were one of those people i insinuated it says more about you than me. 

In my case, i have no problem saying out loud i did not made those predictions of Switch that you said.

That's the main difference.

lol, Miyamotoo is the only one who doesn't need to apologise..... It's the only one who didn't call me anything personal during those months.

And how is 16-16'5 proving partially wrong?? Do you have the numbers?? Is VGC tracking numbers definitive?? Why don't you said what i said specifically about shipment numbers??

Right now Switch is 16'9M to VGC, it's not like 16'5 is too far off either. Switch is going to be adjusted down, just give it time...
