Hmm, a ban or even locking a thread seems a bit excessive on a thread like that, and this is coming from a Nintendo fan. I guess it could be seen as a bit provocative, but it sounds pretty clear to me that it's at least partially a joke, in which case what's the harm in it? I mean I don't see much point in the thread but still..
People should be allowed to post their sales predictions and insights, no matter how misguided they may be ;)
I even think having some fun w/cheeky sarcasm and light trolling should be fine as long as it's not directly insulting someone or a fanbase, (or I suppose also blatantly trying to rustle feathers by taking unfair below-the-belt jabs at a console or company) but hey, I'm a writer, not a mod :P
