The first few pages are hilarious, even TheSource, who is every Wii fans favourite mod was being overly pessimistic!
I also love how Rol stated that most 3rd party dev's were shifting their support over to the Wii already back then. Where are these games? Surely with the short production times and low production price there should be a whole lot more 3rd party goodness there by now?
I'm not trying to diss anyone, I didn't even know this thread existed (it was before my time in here) but my point is that everyone f's up and makes mistakes and bad judgements/predictions regardless of preferred platform and games. Let's all do the boards a favour and remember that the next time someone pulls the high and mighty card.
Some good points but I think the reason people were being overly pessimistic is because this thread wasn't meant for what you actually expected the consoles to sell but lowest expectations as in if the Wii fad burst immediately or Sony's investors got tired of flushing away millions or MS gave up after the RROD fiasco crippled the Xbox brand image.
