Hmm, a ban or even locking a thread seems a bit excessive on a thread like that, and this is coming from a Nintendo fan. I guess it could be seen as a bit provocative, but it sounds pretty clear to me that it's at least partially a joke, in which case what's the harm in it? I mean I don't see much point in the thread but still..
People should be allowed to post their sales predictions and insights, no matter how misguided they may be ;)
I even think having some fun w/cheeky sarcasm and light trolling should be fine as long as it's not directly insulting someone or a fanbase, (or I suppose also blatantly trying to rustle feathers by taking unfair below-the-belt jabs at a console or company) but hey, I'm a writer, not a mod :P
It was mostly a joke, build on the fact that Switch is still below Vita. And the fact that I really truely see Switch having and had more potential than the sales reflect.
It and its games being better than what can be seen from the sales that it has gotten. At least in Finland. In Japan its a different story, a story that I don´t know that well, but it seems to be doing very well there.
Still I personally agree with the mods. The thread was as bad as I feared (I even stated at the start of it that the thread was going to be bad). Locking was justified. I should have read it a couple of times before doing it and a better idea would have been better :P
