This makes me think that launching a new console in feb, so you can benefit from extra sales in the holidays (that arnt the fanboys/guaranteed sales) is better.
Im not sure theres a big benefit from launching in novemeber/december, like console makers have done in the past.
Theres a "core" user base, that ll always adapt early, and those guys/gals buy whenever it launches.
Then your sold out (usually) in the first year, just ruining your holiday boost.
Nintendos way of launching early in the year makes more sense to me, that way you dont risk wasteing your first holidays.
I think it has to do with sales expectations from third party software, I think I read somewhere 3rd party publishers want consoles to release on holiday season since they get more sales or something like that
Anyway, I think a march launch would make sales for succesful consoles like NS or PS4 look better on the get go, but maybe a not succesful one would get worse results than launching on holidays
