I said the price cut was an excuse, not that other people said it was an excuse. And I said this because Kerotan's comment says : "For it's age and price. If it was $199 now it would be doing great. " Which is true, but it can be said for the Switch as well. Both are arguably overdue for a price cut, so I don't see the reason to imply the PS4 needs one and leave it at that. It's not like the PS4 is the only console in this comparison which could use a cut. They are both doing very well considering the price they are at.
Ironically I closed out of the tab right when you replied to me : P Here it is:
Sony cut the price of the PS4 by $50 like, almost exactly two years after their console launched (technically a month and two weeks before the 2nd anniversary). And the 3DS is infamous for having to have a steep price cut just like 6 months after launch. Which means that the Switch will probably go the longest without a price cut this generation. Though I do expect a Switch lite to be announced at $250 in a few months.
So you were kinda making a strawman?
Ironically I think you are interpreting stuff from my comment I didn't say. All I was saying is that both consoles are overdue for a cut. I didn't say kero said otherwise. I did however say it was an excuse, but thats mostly because it could be said about both of them. If its only said about one console it makes it sound like its doing great despite the constraints. When really both have the same constraint. It's called a clarification. Someone said something, I clarified something by adding onto it. Doesn't mean I was arguing against something someone didn't say, as if the y were arguing the exaxt opposite of what I said. Just adding to what was already said.
