A select few said that, not "everyone" like he claimed. Stop taking the statements of the vocal minority and pretending like that's the general consensus.
Why be so obtuse here? Of course it was a bit of hyperbole, as it would never be everyone. But the fact remains that the 360 crowd, which was a pretty sizable chunk of this site back in 2012 and 2013, as well as a few Nintendo fans I'm sure, were stating that Sony would struggle this gen, with MS being able to take even more market from them. At least the US and UK would be on lock for Xbox in a sizable way. No need to rewrite history.
