See my post above. There's simply no need to rush willy nilly onto the next system when your current one is selling like crack. There's a reason the most successful platforms of all time weren't replaced after 4 years, it's just bad business to kill the goose that lays the golden eggs while it's still laying.

Yes there is, smart companies know what they're doing with their launch years ahead of time. 

A new product launch is now something you just pull out of your ass rolling out of bed in 2022 and saying "OK now we need to figure this out".

Games take 2 1/2-3 1/2 years to develop, they need to know by this fall at least what they are doing with Switch 2. 

Just because you are the consumer and you only see/play the finished product and its new to you is meaningless. That's true of basically all entertainment not just video games. You may have a good time at a movie, but you probably will never understand the thousands of hours, years, decades sometimes that goes into making that. You need to be on top of that stuff years in advance as a company. If you're not you are extremely irresponsible as the president. 

You're arguing a point I never made. I never said they shouldn't be planning ahead for Switch 2. 

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
