Well, if it's a home console only and hold no interests for the handheld gamer then I doubt it will sell better than N64 or Xb one (depending on how much longer Xb one stays on the market).
It's not a question of deducting points, it's a question of what is a logical comparison. If the NX primarily sells to handheld gamers then it is more logical to assess its success as a handheld device. 3DS is more successful than N64 and Xb one, but no one ever compares them becuase they do not sell in the same gamer market and thus such a comparison is meaningless. Similarly one needs to analyse where NX sales are coming from in order to make sensible comparisons to past generations and to contemporary competition (if there is any). If NX is 85% selling for its handheld functionality then it is not competing with Xb one for sales and it's not comparable to past gen home consoles.
I have no idea what NX is likely to be, but if it's effectively a handheld with a TV docking station and a controller then I would call it an enhanced handheld rather than a home console and I would analyse its performance relative to the history of handheld devices.
Making a lot of assumptions about the interest of the consumer in the home console market with Ninty. The failure of the WiiU had a lot more to it than "lack of interest". Shitty advertising, too much of a retro style focus with all the 2D platformers, not enough 3rd party support and no effort to rectify the situation, lack of games first year, etc.
If they fix these things by no means will it do PS4 sales, but they have enough to offer in order to generate more interest than the X1. While I am making assumtions, yours are just as outlandish with no concrete grounds to back them up (which is the whole point of this thread). All the pointless doom threads with nothing to back them up, then when a positive one comes out people wanna be like "nope not gonna happen, impossible, *insert hypocritical comment here*".
I stand by my prediction, but I am just simply pointing out you have no more evidence of it being wrong than I do of being right. If it plays out like I think it will, you will see. And believe me, I am going to necro the crap out of this thread when I am right. If I am not I won't have to, as I am sure someone else will do it for me lol. XD
