Curious if there will be a drop in Switch sales further after election in the US. Stock market. Will probably drop significantly if Biden wins (at least for a few months, maybe years), and so people may feel the need to conserve money more (though gamers are usually younger and therefore more liberal, so maybe they won't care about their 401k's at this stage of their life lol).

Ummmmm....

So DOOM Eternal release date confirmed?

Ugh, don't remind me, they've seen saying it's "close" and coming "soon" for months now but refuse to give us a date, it is driving me insane. :(



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Will Switch sales everrecover from the CLIFF, or are they DOOMED to only sell in the 350-400K realm in the foreseeable off-season future?

Japan let the team down, but that seems to be more cos finding a Switch there is like finding a needle in a haystack.

This falls into the category of things we're not even going to joke about.
