Way to take things ouy of context.
I can say the same thing about you, no matter what i say you wont accept that console manufacturers expect sales to remain stable in Dec when launched in Nov and expect them to drop in April when launched in March.
The big difference here is that we, the people who are arguing that a holiday launch isn't an advantage, have provided sales data which shows that the Switch had a way bigger launch in march than every other console that had a holiday launch excluding the PS4. We've also stated that despite launching in March, Nintendo continues to have stock issues to this day, and the PS4 had stock issues for at least a few months. Which means that there was zero advantage, and if there was an advantage, you'd pretty much be implying if the Switch had a holiday launch it would be crushing the PS4 or at the very least be significantly outselling it launch aligned, which is what DonFerrari was getting at.
Meanwhile, the only counter argument you have provided is your own baseless assumption that "console manufacturers will plan differently." That really isn't convincing at all.
Are you fucking kidding? I have provided 1000% more sales data than you or any of the people on your side have.
I have literally shown data from like 12 consoles that shows sales always remain somewhat stable in Dec compared to Nov and always fall off a cliff in April compared to March.
I know Switch had a huge March, i never said otherwise, read the last 15 posts i wrote. MY ENTIRE ARGUMENT HAS BEEN THAT 2ND MONTH SALES ALWAYS REMAIN STABLE WHEN A CONSOLE LAUNCHES IN NOVEMBER, 2ND MONTH SALES ALWAYS DROP SIGNIFICANTLY WHEN A CONSOLE LAUNCHES IN SPRING.
Again, Shadow1980 and I have provided data that shows this always happens regardless of stock issues.
Its just common sense that a console manufacturer will plan to have significantly higher shipments in Dec compared to April.
