Not relevant was probably a poor choice of words, let me clarify.
You said the people making the jokes are being passive aggressive and need to accept that both PS4 & Switch are doing great but you ignore that some of the people bringing up age are doing it to either downplay Switch sales or to say that we shouldn't compare them when they had no issue with the comparisons in 2017 or 2018 when PS4 was on top.
Skeeuk said: Switch isn't the best performer here it's the PS4 in its 6th year. Yes 6th year.
Geralt99 said: By the end of the year, switch will beat ps4 by a million or 2 which is nothing special considering the popularity and portability factors of switch and the age of ps4.
Nate4Drake said: We continue to compare apples with oranges, and this will keep going for ever. PS4 is an old Home Console, Switch a relatevely new portable from Nintendo. Can people realize that it is silly to compare sales of PS4 and Switch in 2019 and 2020 ?
How are we the ones who need to accept both are doing great when it's the people who bring up age that need a reason to justify Switch selling on par/better than PS4 this year?
Ok, i agree with you on that, if PS4 and Switch were comparable a year or two ago, then of course are comparable today. In my case, i always compared them, despite the difficulty to label what Switch is.
There are people not accepting things in each side. I don't think they're doing it always with malice, but maybe they didn't express themselves correctly or didn't chose the correct words, i don't know. But if you disagree with someone's opinion, you let it know him/her and move on.
If i replied to Nate4Drake, i would had said to him: "Maybe Switch is a portable, and PS4 is a lot older console, but we have to compare them because we can not compare anything else at the moment. I consider Switch a portable (that works as a home console too) that it's doing amazing at the moment and i found even more impressive what PS4 is doing, because bla bla bla". But this will be personal. My comment was directed in general, for everyone.
When i don't post here, is because someone already said what i think, and when i post is because i don't see anyone saying what i think. I'm that simple.
Edit: By the way, 17'0M is what Nintendo expected for FY18, you're correct. That will make more sense. If Switch is at 35'0M shipped lifetime by then, i expect around 1'0-1'5M on shelves, so.......33'5-34'0M sold to consumers. That will mean VGC is undertracking Switch. If VGC is tracking correctly Switch, then i have doubts Switch will reach 17'0M units shipped.Last edited by colafitte - on 01 April 2019
