So, you also think you can convince the entire industry that Switch is 9th gen?   You are also debating against history as we've had several instances of multiple consoles by the same company in the same generation. 

I don't need to convince an entire industry on reality especially one that changes its tune to suit itself want to bang on about history Mega Drive competed against the NES for 2 years along side the master system yet is still a Gen 4 platform so don't play that notion on me either.

So, again, you're trying to call the entire industry wrong.  Good luck getting it changed.

Odd statement.  I never said I was the entire industry so I'm not sure what there is for me to get over.  Further, you are the one going against the grain.  Would that then mean you are the one who needs to get over something?

I'm far from the only one who sees he's technically right as many others on this forum have debated this to death your argument hinges on a claim with nothing concrete all you've said is your measly the industry this and that with no source either so we can only assume you see your views as the entire industry. You've not debunked what I said earlier to the user highlighting this industry angle claim is your go to crutch here I'm guessing you believe the industry can't make enough money to stay afloat with out microtransactions as well because some PR reps have said as such.

Look, we gotta put a cap on when celebrate _____ out selling _____.

The only real Nintendo console that didn't outsell the Xbox was the Wii U, it was a disaster. Kudos to the Switch, it will likely sell a 100 million units or whatever.

Well I mean it is a sales website, so this is the only place celebrating stuff like this makes sense.

 

Do I give two craps?  No...not really.  I will celebrate when it passes 80 mil, then again if it passes 100 mil.  To me, those are the milestones that would matter...IMHO.

For a quick example, NPD just called it this (8th) generation.  Do you have anything showing it to be 9th generation?

Yeah the Switch succeeding an 8th gen platform, NPD also call it a home console when the industry debates over that, it's a Hybrid.

Neither NPD, Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft or third parties use the terminology that is used on forums. For example, you won't find any of those five entities call the PS4 an 8th generation console.

The terminology that is used on forums ties in with how console generations are listed on Wikipedia, which is a website with user-made content, so ultimately it's a feedback loop where forum goers and Wikipedia editors go with popular opinion. That's why Switch is currently listed as 8th generation despite being 9th generation. But if the Dreamcast is recognized as 6th generation despite discontinuation before competing against other 6th generation consoles, then Switch will eventually be recognized as 9th generation because it will actually sell alongside the next PS and Xbox.

Guess why the Dreamcast is considered 6th generation. It's because it succeeded the Saturn, a 5th generation console.

It's also worth remembering that the 3DS wasn't categorized as 8th generation right away. Once again, because forum talk casts judgment.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

You're right.  I'll start correcting everyone I work with.  Now can we get back to 9th gen Switch outselling 6th gen Xbox?
