Moving from 3rd place to 2nd place is the greatest comeback in gaming history?
Switch haven't passed sales of PS4, so how would it them be the greatest comeback? Also PS4 have dominated WiiU and X1.
This is the exact quote you were countering:
Rather than focusing on the fact that they missed their lofty goal, can we not simply appreciate how far the switch has come compared to Wii U? Only the Wii after the GameCube was probably a greater comeback in gaming history.
Your counter was that you think the PS3 is the greatest comeback in video gaming history. That can only mean that you think the PS3 moving from 3rd place in its generation into slightly over 2nd place is a bigger comeback than not just the Switch, but also the Wii. While we don't know yet where the Switch will finish in lifetime sales, we do know that it only took 10 months to surpass the lifetime sales of its predecessor the Wii U. The Wii U finished in last place not just in it's generation, but was the lowest selling home console in Nintendo's history. Threads and comments to the effect of "Nintendo needs to leave hardware and go 3rd Party" were commonplace on this site prior to the launch of the Switch. Less than 3 years later and Nintendo now has the leading global hardware seller on the current market. That is the great comeback Dulfite was commenting on. And it was compared to Nintendo's other comeback of the Wii finishing 1st in its generation with over 101 million units sold right after its predecessor the Gamecube had just finished 3rd in its generation with less than 22 million units sold. So, I'm trying to figure out your reasoning for stating the PS3 moving from 3rd place in its generation into 2nd place would be considered "the greatest comeback in gaming history". Please elaborate.
