Which "VGChartzStaff" wrote this compelling article on launch day for the Nintendo Switch?
It includes this nice conclusion:
"Final Thoughts & Predictions
I’m looking forward to receiving my Nintendo Switch sometime soon (whenever Royal Mail finally delivers it!) and putting it through its paces, but I'm concerned that Nintendo is making the same mistakes its competitors have made before it, and even repeating some of their missteps with the WiiU. It's in a stronger position to succeed than its immediate predecessor - indeed I see the Switch outselling the WiiU - but in the long run I don't see it coming close to the success of the 3DS or PS4.
Here are my predictions for the Switch over the coming years:
- The Nintendo Switch will sell more than the WiiU (10+ million units)
- But it will not sell more than 25 million units.
- At $299.99/£279.99, the Switch won’t sell well beyond launch, resulting in a price drop within its first full year on the market."
Also, does anyone have a handy guide to Switch Sales predictions over the years, in particular 2017? Would love to see where the range was, and in particular what my prediction was. I'd like a helping of crow for the holidays if possible.
I remember that back then when the article had gone up, I asked the mod team when the author would get banned for trolling. All they said was that they don't ban people for being stupid.

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.
