Do you have links to these predictions?

I don't but that's how I remember it, which part are you denying? I may have misremembered a detail or two but your general line of thought was that PS5 would be practically doomed if launched as late as 2020 or 21, and Switch would hog the majority of their consumers by dominating in 3rd parties or something along these lines lol.

It helps to link to the actual posts that you are referring to.  Most of these things some "kind of" like things I said, but the details are off.  For example, I've been saying for a long time that Switch will be the best selling system of all time.  I've said that it would get lots of third party games.  I've said that it would dominate the Japanese software charts, and that even Switch third party games would dominate the Japanese charts over Playstation third party games.  I've said these things in a variety of ways in a variety of threads.  If you have a specific post you are referring to, then I'd need a link to discuss it.

You know memory can be a funny thing.  Your mind may have unconsciously changed what I said, when my predictions started coming right.  That is why it is better to just link to the post.

I'm not perfect though.  Here is a post I made that Zippy6 linked to.

I voted 10-11.9m. No way is PS5 selling better than PS4. I can't believe how many people actually think this will happen. Some things to consider:

1. $500 price tag
2. Looming recession
3. PS5 has much tougher competition than PS4 from both Nintendo and Microsoft.
4. Launch data is basically irrelevant. Even the Wii U sold well when it launched.

Looks like my prediction is going to be wrong for PS5 2021.  It hasn't changed my view on how PS5 is going to sell lifetime though.

curl-6 bet me that PS5 + X|S sales would reach 56m before year end 2023 and he was right.
