Specifically here? Well on the forums I have been proven wrong about a few things. There were some climate change things I was wrong about. I can't remember the specifics but the new information helped me hone my arguments better.

Also recently it was suggested to me that income inequality is a problem. I argued that only poverty is a problem, however perceived income inequality does cause social unrest. So I was wrong.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

It seems X is selling better than I thought.

At least you can admit you were wrong, it would have been childish not to really.

I thought the wii would do lowish numbers because it was just a turbofied Gamecube with waggle controller and thought the Switch would have a slower start and pick up sales with its first revision. I thought the Switch was likely to have a VR visor at or soon after launch. I thought Sony would release a Vita that took standard micro SD cards because there was so much resistance to their overpriced memory cards and it seemed to being having a hugely negative impact on Vita sales and thought they would try to save it.

I thought their would be an invasion of android boxes with their own wireless game controller but they continue to this day as mainly media boxes with game controllers an additional purchase. I thought the bottom end of the market would be saturated by such boxes and they would be quite popular with pre-configured controllers.

I thought Nintendo would try to save the wii u by offering a mario kart bundle for £199 approx but instead prices actually stayed the same and sales actually took a huge nosedive.

I thought ios and google would take such a large chunk of casual gaming that Nintendo would be forced to offer more powerful hardware and premium game experiences but in fact the Switch is selling well offering even mobile game ports from ios or android at high prices. Basically I didn't believe there was enough people prepared to pay this premium for such games but realised not all people are as tightfisted as me.

Doesn't make me any less curious!

Firstly though i think i should admit to something too. I remember the first thread i made had many hilariously over-estimated predictions on the first-year sales of Wii U games. I can say, with 100% certainty, that I was very wrong, just generally, in that thread. (If you are curious: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=198905&page=1 )

also,there's a old tweet from someone who said that the switch would do 16 million first year and even better on the second one.Back then i said to a friend that was way too optimistic and foolish,but now i don't even need to say how wrong i was.
