Lol I did not edit my post. I also didn't go through hundreds of pages. I manipulated the thread URL to find threads that started in Dec 2006. Then thread by thread to find them because I remembered essentially what I had wrote. I actually found the second post first. I only had to search about 40 threads. Some pretty interesting ones back then as they mostly were started by ioi.

Also my DS post was right pezus!

The earliest prediction I could find said that the Wii would have 200 million sellers, back in January 2011.

We're at 130 or 140 at the moment.

I suck at this.



Love and tolerate.

You mean the DS right? Pretty sure the Wii did not reach 100 million yet haha

No, I meant the Wii. I thought it would have 200 games that sold one million or more.

I made a thread about which would sell more PS3 or PSP, I said LTD sales for the PSP will be 75 million and 69 million for the PS3, a quick summary of the thread was that no one thought the PS3 would come close to outselling the PSP. This is back in 2008.

It will never be right. DS only outshipped PS2 by one million last fiscal year and the difference between them will only drop.



I didn't state my predictions because it would have gotten me banned back in those days (2007) with how much the people that ran this site loved Nintendo and didn't like Sony (This is when there were mods like Fishyjoe and Shams). I was right about the Wii not being the "PS2" of this generation - as in the console that rules in every category (market share, 3rd party support, profits, etc.)



"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."  --Hermann Goering, leading Nazi party member, at the Nuremberg War Crime Trials

I predict that superchunk will start at least five more 'I was right' kind of threads in the coming years.
